It’s a great pitching matchup (but not as great as it would have been in, say, 1998). The two first basemen are really under the gun: Mark Teixeira is hitting .172 in the postseason with 16 strikeouts in 58 at-bats; he’s at .105 (2-for-19) in the World Series and made the last out in Game 5, striking out with the tying run aboard. The native are getting restless; Ryan Howard is at 3-for-19 with 12 strikeouts in the World Series after being MVP of the NLCS.

Chase Utley and A-Rod, on the other hand, are on fire. I sense a Game 7 is in store, and I’m wondering if Charlie Manuel would even consider pitching Cliff Lee on two day’s rest.

Enjoy the game, everyone.
