Phillies Beat Yanks In Game One

The Phillies beat New York in game one of the World Series 6-1. Cliff Lee dominated beating the Yankees powerful lineup allowing just one run. Chase Utley got the momentum with a home run. My prediction for game two: another win for Philly.

AL Playoff Picks


Yankees vs. Twins: Yankees in four.
The Twins have no shot at all in this series. Derek Jeter, Mark Teixara and Alex Rodriguez are possibly MVP canidates. Hand Joe Mauer and the Twins a win but nothing else.

Red Sox vs. Angels: Angels in five.
This season the Angels will finally get past the Sox and challenge the Yanks for the AL crown. Torii Hunter, Chone Figgins and Vladimir Guerrero will fuel for constant runs even against Jon Lester and Josh Beckett. The memory of Nick Adenhart will fuel the Angels.


Yankees vs. Angels:Yankees in four.
Again the Yankees will dominate. If the Yankees can play like they did in the regular season they could possibly sweep the Yanks. Don't count on it though.

AL Winner:Yankees.

Smoltz got beat up his last start against the New York Yankees as the Sox lost 13-6. This may be the end of Smoltz's storied career.
