Finally the Fall Classic is upon us and what a match up it is! In one corner you have the National League Champion and defending World Series Champs in the Philadelphia Phillies in the other you have the New York Yankees the champions of the American League. The Phil’s are looking to become the first back to back winners since the Yankees did it in the 1998 and 1999 season. The Yankees on the other hand are on a quest to put an astonishing 27th title to their resume.
You can pretty much guarantee that this series will have plenty of fire power with two of the top offensive teams in the league going at it. The Phillies are led by first baseman Ryan Howard and Shortstop Jimmy Rollins. The Yankees have plenty of all-stars on their team to scare any team off but none more important than the all time hits leader in Yankees history Derek Jeter. If these two teams can keep up the kind of production they have been getting from their starting pitching, I am certain we will have a World Series for the ages!
