Great weather for baseball. Why did the Yankees not put a retractable roof on their new stadium?

The WS is set with the Yankees winning over the Angels tonight 5-2. Disappointing defensive game for the Angels, but the Yankees made the plays when they needed to.
Wednesday's starters will likely be CC Sabathia for the Yankees and Cliff Lee for the Phillies.

This is the best World Series matchup in quite some time. The two best teams from their leagues all year and the defending champs against the team widely thought to be the best. I'd imagine this will get huge ratings.

The biggest edge in this series I think is the Phillies outfield. Pitching, infield and the bullpens all seem close, but Yankees getting the edge with the bullpen. But, the gap between OF/DH is huge in the Phillies favor.

As a Phillies fan, I hope that will be enough to win the Series.

I agree, Doug. I've been watching quite a bit of the CS and these are the two best teams for sure. I think this will go six or seven and be very competitive. The Yanks' don't have big power or stars in their OF, but I give them a good shot. Watching Mariano is so fun; it's witnessing greatness.

Yankees in 7.

If the Phillies can take one of the 2 first games in New York, they can win the series.
