Boy, neither team's manager likes his bullpen. Girardi looks like he's going to try and win the series with four pitchers, the three starters and Mo. And Manuel is pitching Blanton in game four because he didn't want to take Lee out in game one with a five run lead. That's one way to answer the who's-your-closer question. Sending Pedro out for the sixth was questionable but the seventh, too? Wow.
The big question tonight is which Cole Hamels shows up: the '08 postseason pitcher or the '09? I think we all know what the Yanks will get from Pettitte. I think the Yanks will get to Hamels and the Philly pen and take back home-field advantage in the series.
