The Day We've All Been Waiting For

Sixers opening day! Just kidding, obviously. Tonight the World Series finally begins as the defending champion Philadelphia Phillies take on the New York Yankees in the new Yankee stadium. And yes, the Sixers do begin tonight as well, taking on the Orlando Magic in Florida to kick off the 2009-10 season, the first under new coach Eddie Jordan.

But who cares about that? Tonight's not about the NBA. Not by a long shot. Tonight is about CC vs. Cliff Lee. Ryan Howard vs. Alex Rodriguez. Mariano Rivera vs. Brad Lidge. It's Phillies vs. Yankees, first team to four wins gets to hoist the crown. Frankly, I can't wait.

Honestly, this is such an even matchup that any real predictions would be foolhardy. Both teams blew through the first two rounds, and both teams can win any way possible. It should be a great series. I have no idea how many games this thing will go, but something tells me the Phillies have four more wins in them. Four more wins.


BallHype: hype it up!
