World Series: Phillies at Yankees, Game 1

YankeesPhiladelphia Phillies at New York Yankees

Cliff Lee, LHP vs. CC Sabathia, LHP

Time: 7:57 p.m at Yankee Stadium
Weather: Cloudy, 50
TV: FOX
Twitter: Phillies Nation

The wait is finally over.  At 7:57 eastern time, the Philadelphia Phillies will defend their crown against the 26-time champion New York Yankees.  History is at stake in this series, as the Phillies look to become the first NL team to repeat since the Big Red Machine in the mid-70’s.

Cliff Lee is the man to start this thing up.  Lee has been unstoppable in the playoffs thus far, sporting a sub-one ERA.  He has pulled a Cole Hamels this postseason by putting the team on his back when it counts the most. Lee has two wins and just three walks against 20 strikeouts so far.  In this all important Game 1, let’s see how Lee responds to the bright lights of the Bronx.

On the other side is 6’7″, 280-pound, C.C. Sabathia.  He’s been just as unhittable as Lee, dominating both the Twins and Angels in his three starts this year.  He’s 3-0 with an ERA of 1.19, proving that last years blowup against the Phillies in the NLDS with Milwaukee is in the past.  With two lefties on the mound, we could be in for quite the duel.

Offensively, these teams are as close as they come.  Both hit for ridiculous power, play in smallish parks, and boast the scariest lineup in their respective leagues. If your looking for a weakness on either side, keep searching.  For New York, their defense is probably their Achillies heel, if there is one to choose.  They don’t commit many errors, however, their outfielders have suspect arms and catcher Jorge Posada has a surgically repaired shoulder which could mean more Phillies running the bases.

The Phillies downfall is clearly the back end of their bullpen. Brad Lidge floundered through the regular season, but has since picked it up to record three saves and a win in the ’09 postseason.  Lidge has not allowed a run yet either, and the same goes for Chad Durbin, who has seen action in five games without allowing a runner to score.

It’s a series that’s as evenly matched as they come.  Forget about words – there is nothing left to predict or describe when it comes to the Phillies and Yankees.  It’s all up to the players on the field as they battle for baseball immortality.  Tonight, our National Pastime begins its 105th Fall Classic.

Phillies. Yankees.  Game 1.  Let’s rock.

Phillies Lineup: Rollins (SS), Victorino (CF), Utley (2B), Howard (1B), Werth (RF), Ibanez (DH), Francisco (LF), Feliz (3B), Ruiz (C).

Yankees Lineup: Jeter (SS), Damon (LF), Teixeria (1B), Rodriguez (3B), Posada (C), Matsui (DH), Cano (2B), Swisher (RF), Cabrera (CF).

FestbierYour Gameday Beer – Victory Festbier
Phillies fans are ready to party and we’re ready for a victory so tonight’s beer is an easy pick. It also helps that it’s a Philly-area beer in the Marzen/Oktoberfest-style. This full-bodied brew retains an earthy taste to go along with its sweet caramel, toffee, and roasted malt flavors – perfect for the fall weather. Festbier goes well with German food, in which case I think a cheesesteak on a pretzel roll would qualify. – By Brian

GO PHILLIES!

    What did that newest Birdland shirt say? “What they can’t buy, we’re gonna take”?

    Truer words were never spoken so eloquently.

    The final stage in becoming WFC ’09 starts tonight.

    October 28, 2009 at 7:06 pm

    My prediction..Utley 2 run HR to start things off in the 1st (It worked last year!). Phillies win 5-3.

    Ok guys! We got a game with the Yankees tonight! And that only means one thing! Bad news for the Yankees.

    Love the beer choice tonight, but I have been drinking it for the past 5 weeks straight. I bottled the leftovers from a keg. But tonight I am going with some Victory Whirlwind to sum up the season and Stoudt’s Gold.

    Last year, right before the series, I had bought a 4 pack of Beamish Ale. And placed them in my fridge. After each win I drank one. I picked up a 4 pack yesterday. Let’s go Phils.

    October 28, 2009 at 7:44 pm

    anybody find it ironic that the yanks are using the “evil empire” theme from star wars to introduce the phils?

  17. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 7:44 pm

    That’s charming: boo the manager, then tell us again how mean Philly fans are.

  18. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 7:45 pm

    @Nate: Good point.

  19. j reed

    October 28, 2009 at 7:47 pm

    big karmic mistake playing the empire music for us and the rebel music for them

  20. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 7:47 pm

    I love it though Tracey. I really do. I can wait to see their faces when we beat the mess out of’em!

  21. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 7:48 pm

    You know, we beat CC Sabathia last time we were in that stadium.

  22. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 7:49 pm

    And Cliff Lee has beaten the Yankees in that stadium (I heard he was the first person to win a game there, or maybe the first opposing pitcher to win there)

  23. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 7:49 pm

    let’s destroy them!

  24. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    One of the Channel 3 news guys commented earlier tonight that the Yankees have replaced The House that Ruth Built with The House that A Billion Bucks Built

  26. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 7:51 pm

    You can’t tell me that C.C. and A.J. Burnett aren’t very nervous about facing our Monster lineup. They’re aren’t enough $$$$ to cure that.

  27. Ed R.

    October 28, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    ObviosLEE we don’t have to CHASE the pennant any MOYER but we still have to figure out HOWARD going to bring another one home. We have to keep ROLLINS up the STAIRS because it’s WERTH yelling with our hands in the EYRE and hanging off the L…IDGE because it will all end in A VICTORINO in 2009. If they follow the MANUEL the PHILLIES fans will be HAPPy and we will RAUUUL…….Go Phillies!!!!

  28. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    C.C. vs Lee matched up in the 1st ever regular game there in April.

  29. HotDogs

    October 28, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    I said the same thing about the star wars…..guess we needed to be reminded that we are visiting the death star! Good always beats evil!

    Yeah and it only took 6 installments for good to beat evil? Coincidence? We will find out.

  40. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    Like the idea of the bunt. Just was not executed very well.

  41. GWFightinsFan

    October 28, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    That was odd to start off with a bunt…,

  42. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    Patience, Jimmy, patience.

  43. Ed R.

    October 28, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    all day I had visions of Jimmy leading off the game with a bomb…guess not.

  45. Morris Buttermaker

    meh, soo close

  78. A Detectible Met Horror

    October 28, 2009 at 8:14 pm

    DAMN shoulda sent Utley… that woulda reallllly set the tone.

  79. Mostone

    October 28, 2009 at 8:14 pm

    Aw, too bad. At least we made him pitch like 25 pitches.

  80. Ed R.

    October 28, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    damn it…I really thought we would walk out with a run atleast. That was a weak grounder. Oh well, at least we made C.C throw some pitches.

  81. joedad

    October 28, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    Got him sweating out there a little bit. He’s wearing down already. Keep up the patient atbats

  82. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    Yup, the pitch count on Gameday is 24.

  83. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    The foul ball on the check swing was costly…. But we mad’em work. He ain’t going 8/9 inns tonite that’s for sure.

  84. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 8:18 pm

    K # 1 for Lee

  85. Tracey

    HA! He pulled a JRoll

  90. A Detectible Met Horror

    October 28, 2009 at 8:19 pm

    Pretty efficient start so far!

  91. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 8:20 pm

    Yeah, but that’s a pretty sick pitch thought….

  92. Mostone

    October 28, 2009 at 8:20 pm

    The local radio feed is way behind. I don’t care, I’m keeping it on.

  102. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 8:24 pm

    Now we get the bottom of our order, which may make the Yankees complacent, but Feliz, Ruiz and Lee can hit when it counts.

  103. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 8:24 pm

    for us to make C.C. struggle his 1st time through our lineup could be very telling.

  104. PhanAttic Will

    October 28, 2009 at 8:24 pm

    HAHAHH WHERE ARE THE YANKEES FANS NOW?!?!

  105. Tracey

    oops…. Francisco tonight. Eh, he can hit too.

    Ok so this may be a retarded question but I am supposed to go to a family dinner tomorrow night…dinner is at Outback Steakhouse…does anyone know if Outback has tv’s at their bars? This pretty much makes or breaks my decision.

  109. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    Feliz have nice at bats please

  110. joedad

    October 28, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    mycruzcooler, it looks like Ruiz is surprised at how much Lee’s pitches were moving. He missed a couple

  111. A Detectible Met Horror

    October 28, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    @tracey Lee does not hit in this game

  112. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    or not Feliz

  113. HotDogs

    October 28, 2009 at 8:28 pm

    joedad…..can you please call the bench and tell them!!!!

  114. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 8:28 pm

    C.C. is really struggling out there right now. We have to make him pay. Feliz is driving me nuts with his wild swings.

  115. joedad

    October 28, 2009 at 8:28 pm

    Ed R, the Outback near me (Jamison) has TV’s around the bar

  116. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 8:28 pm

    well that inning was what 10 pitches?

  117. PhanAttic Will

    October 28, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    Every Outback I’ve been to has had a bar with TV’s so I think you’ll be alright.

    ED. R. call and ask!

  119. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    Ah well. We’ve turned over the order. Not as many pitches as I’d like, though.

  120. GWFightinsFan

    October 28, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    They’re playing right into his hands by swinging early in the county at that outside crap

    October 28, 2009 at 8:31 pm

    Very annoying ab’s my Feliz/Ruiz/J-Roll/Shane. Make this guy throw pitches. What is so hard to understand about that. The Yankees middle relief is just about all righties and they’ve been very suspect.

  125. Mo

    October 28, 2009 at 8:32 pm

    We will kick CC’s butt. Lee looked very sharp. How can you be afraid of this Yankees team. Damon, Melky, Swisher all suck. Rollins cant bunt on the first pitch after 8 days. Swing baby

  126. ryan coward

    October 28, 2009 at 8:33 pm

    Thank you fellas.

    Pat to answer your question, someone who is not a Phillies fan and someone who apparently does not care that I am one. The wife, being the sweet heart that she is gave me a free pass but I still feel like I should go. I hate having a conscience.

    I thought the rain was supposed to stop after 6 and stay away…this better not put us in a rain delay. That would be very very bad.

    Yeah Harry in regard to fence distance not bc they screwed up with the wind tunnels. Your bandbox is the 3rd smallest park while Yankee stadium is 9th with regard to average fence distance. So if you’re going to talk at least be an intelligent one. Thanks

    well now CC is getting his share of K’s. 4 for him.

  241. Ed R.

    Feliz is pretty much useless. We can find a glove out there that is similar to his who can hit better than he does.

    I want 20 pushups from Rollins right now. What happened? We had his number the first, then since Utley popped one that just barely went out (meaning it would’ve been a fly ball elsewhere) we’ve gone down quietly. I don’t understand this.

  248. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 9:28 pm

    just a 10 pitch inning for CC, 81 pitches for him

  249. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 9:29 pm

    I am slightly concerned about our hitting thus far. But we’ll get more runs as long as it stops raining.

  250. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 9:29 pm

    J-Roll I love ya man, but somebody needs to go bleeping tell this guy that we in all likely hood won’t win this thing if he does not get on base. JC man! Stop trying to go yard all the damn time. Get the bleep on base!

  252. Matt

    October 28, 2009 at 9:30 pm

    @Ed R-I’d like if Pedro had a better bat, but at 3rd, I’d rather have his glove there than an average/below average fielder and a decent/good bat. Our offense is stacked enough that we don’t have to rely on offense from the 3rd base position. It’d be nice, but not necessary.

  253. Jeff

    October 28, 2009 at 9:31 pm

    we had 8 days off. little rust. we should of jumped on this big monster in the first.

    October 28, 2009 at 9:38 pm

    Thank you. Rollins caught the ball in the air. even though he tried to drop it. He caught the ball and Matsui wondered off the bag. Howard tagged’em. That’s a DP.

    OK, Ryan, don’t let Chase get all the glory…

  293. Keith

    Utley has 4 HRs in World Series play now

  294. Morris Buttermaker

    Wave the towels!!! Let’s get more runs in this inning!

  297. Tracey

    CC is close to 100

  298. Werthitall

    October 28, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    As much as I love Utley, he really should change up his hair.

    Not a good look.

  299. poomie

    WOO HOO!

  302. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    didn’t think that would be a hit, but nice Werth!

  303. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    Okay, your turn, Raul, just don’t bite on that curve.

    Nice and easy does the trick with Raul’s swing. Nothing too hard.

  304. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    Good job of getting on Werth. But the Phillies have had some bad 3-1 swings tonight.

  305. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    C.C’s pitch count is now at 101(unofficial of course).

  306. joedad

    October 28, 2009 at 9:55 pm

    They are just a bit off offensively Morris. I think next time around they will be back.

    keep it up Clifton!

  307. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 9:55 pm

    October 28, 2009 at 9:56 pm

    Anyone notice that Rudy Guiliani’s hat is backwards?

    It says PD NY FD…wouldn’t it make more sense for it to say FD NY PD since they are called the FDNY and the NYPD?

    Just saying.

  310. HotDogs

    October 28, 2009 at 9:57 pm

    JoeDad….agreed. Raul doesn’t seem himself. Blame it on DH position? They all seem to swing for the fences. Need to string some bases together.

  311. Georgie

    October 28, 2009 at 9:57 pm

    Was it someone on here who said a few days ago that Utley was going to start hitting homeruns this series? Was that Don M.? Good call, whoever.

  312. SDO

    October 28, 2009 at 9:58 pm

    cole hamels should spend the offseason with cliff and learn that curveball of his.

  313. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 9:59 pm

    Is Tim McCarver getting paid to say “spiked curveball”? Does he get $10 every time he says it?

  314. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:00 pm

    Edr…. The guy is a total a$$wipe! Remember his Presidental Campaign to “Florida” that went nowhere? What a joke.

  336. Ed R.

    October 28, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    so my comment is waiting moderation but it said…

    Lee just had the c*ckiest look ever making that play. That was unbeLEEvable.

    And yes HK, you are right. Guiliani is a joke.

  337. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:07 pm

    alright Francisco-Feliz-Ruiz, let’s go!

    I used to teach English in Japan. And every now and then, a student would learn a new big word and use it constantly for a week. Like all of a sudden the one guy could not stop saying “occupation.” “My occupation is bus driver. What is your occupation? Do you like your occupation?”

    That is how Tim McCarver is with “spiked curveball” tonight

  341. HotDogs

    October 28, 2009 at 10:09 pm

    OK….enough of the fun. Time to get serious. Phils need base runners and runs! Let’s go Phillies!!!!

  342. Jeff

    October 28, 2009 at 10:09 pm

    You are so right about Utley, he was so tired at the end. He looks so good at the plate.

  343. poomie

    October 28, 2009 at 10:10 pm

    (so glad this is not as stressful of a game as some of the others and will be able to get to bed before 12:30)

  344. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:10 pm

    nice walk Francisco!

    let’s go Feliz.

  345. wtffeliz

    October 28, 2009 at 10:11 pm

    has feliz ever seen a first pitch he has not liked?…

  346. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:11 pm

    damn Feliz is terrible this postseason minus that one HR

  347. Ed R.

    Wow Feliz. I just shake my head

  349. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:11 pm

    he hit it hard. what can you do. If he gets that one up in the air it’s 4 zip.

  350. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 10:11 pm

    I can’t wait to see the celebrities at CBP this weekend. Major celebrities like Tony Luke, Jazzy Jeff, Hall and/or Oates.

    October 28, 2009 at 10:12 pm

    @Morris OMG ROFL

  352. Ed R.

    Don’t forget Will Smith and Bill Crosby. And Kobe Bryant…oh wait…

  353. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:12 pm

    Feliz needs to have better at bats

  354. Keith

    Taylor Swift too

  371. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 10:19 pm

    I was home sick from work over the summer and watched the original Bad News Bears. It is absolutely hysterical. And it is really sappy without being corny.

    One of my favorite things about Philly is that we consider local news people to be major celebrities.

  372. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:20 pm

    so no more CC tonight

  373. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 10:20 pm

    @GW, he did? He would when I muted it.

  374. poomie

    October 28, 2009 at 10:21 pm

    stop, step back…is this really happening…just have to pinch myself. we are dominating them!

  375. GWFightinsFan

    October 28, 2009 at 10:21 pm

    Ok, looks like Sabathia’s done…now we gotta put some runs on the board next inning!!!

  376. FillyP

    October 28, 2009 at 10:22 pm

    Another Phall Classic. I LOVE IT! Most excited I’ve ever been in my life for baseball.

    Phils up 2-0 in the 7th. I feel like we’re in a great position in this game. Lee looks like he’s picking up right where he left off (Hamels of ’09?). And Utley’s got that sweet stroke working again. I’ll be ecstatic if we take 1 out of 2 in the Bronx.

    Cheeseburger Cheeseburger is done. Let’s tack on some insurance against Hughes! 😉

    LET’S GO FIGHTINS!!

  377. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:22 pm

    quick 1-2-3 inning for Lee 😀

  378. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:22 pm

    Finish him off Lee

  379. joedad

    October 28, 2009 at 10:22 pm

    And Cliff Lee and Ryan Howard and Chase Utley

  380. SDO

    October 28, 2009 at 10:22 pm

  388. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 10:25 pm

    Cliff Lee just keeps getting better. He looks better now than he did in any part of the game.Time to put up some runs on Phil Hughes.

  389. SDO

    October 28, 2009 at 10:25 pm

  393. Jeff

    October 28, 2009 at 10:25 pm

    Morris that is one of the best movies period. They got stupid with the rest. Kelly Lee could be Cliffs son. LOL. I am still upset he was thrown out at the plate.

  394. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:26 pm

    This is Lee’s game. End of Story….

  395. Sam

    SO CLOSE!!!

  396. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 10:26 pm

    Alas. Best foul ball home run I’ve ever seen.

  397. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    The local radio was going crazy over that one, but it was *way* foul

  398. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    soooooooo close Jimmy!

  399. SDO

    October 28, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    let’s go rollins – work it

  400. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:28 pm

    nice walk Jimmy

  401. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:28 pm

    The Sixers lost. All man…….

  402. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 10:28 pm

    If this half-inning is long, Lee might be done since his arm would cool down. And it might end up as such, since Jimmy just walked (huh?)

  403. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 10:28 pm

    The radio (at least the online broadcast of it) is about 8 seconds behind the TV!

  404. Ed R.

    October 28, 2009 at 10:28 pm

    Sixers got rocked. Magic were Lidge from behind the 3 point line. Big surprise there.

  405. joedad

    October 28, 2009 at 10:28 pm

    SDO, I was amazed at how Basinger looked…are you sure that is her? Could be computer touch ups

  406. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:29 pm

    Steal Jimmy before they bring the lefty in!

  407. phillyjoe

    October 28, 2009 at 10:29 pm

    i wanna see jimmy swipe a bag here

  408. FillyP

    October 28, 2009 at 10:30 pm

    Rattle Hughes and we’re in the driver’s seat. Let’s get to the Yanks bullpen and show them who REALLY has something to worry about. Really sick of all the talk of our pitching being an issue; newsflash: every staff in the majors goes through struggles.

  409. mycruzincooler.com

    October 28, 2009 at 10:30 pm

    Did they just sey the fans were jumping tonight?
    Its been fairly quiet I think.

  410. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 10:31 pm

    The Yankees are really stalling, probably to make sure Lee’s been out of the game too long to come back.

  411. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:31 pm

    Edr… Please take that last statement back. We’re up 2-0. lol

  412. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:31 pm

    nice steal Jimmy

  413. Phan in TN

    October 28, 2009 at 10:32 pm

    that was sweet

  414. SDO

    October 28, 2009 at 10:32 pm

    looks like hughes is still not ready for the bright lights in the postseason…

  415. Caleb

    October 28, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    Philly Joe can you say something like “i wanna see utley homer here” too?

  416. GWFightinsFan

    October 28, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    This has gotta be the inning!!!

  417. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    I grew up on the sequels, so I like the second one a lot. The one in Japan is a little silly.

    I love Phil Hughes. He is looking great. I can’t wait to see him for the rest of the series.

    The Phillies really need to tack on some runs here. It would be HUUUUUUUGE!

  418. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    get’em over get’em in. That 3rd run would feel like a Touch Down right about now!

  419. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    nice back to back walks

  420. Georgie

    October 28, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    Yep, they are stalling as long as they can, they want Cliff out of this game, and it’s probably working, cold, crappy night up there.

  421. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    Ahh crap. The Sixers lost tonight? There goes the perfect season. I guess we will have to settle for 81-1.

  422. phillyjoe

    October 28, 2009 at 10:36 pm

    big boys are coming up…id like to see howard get a hit

  423. Harry Kalas

    Nah cruzin. They’re BP is not very good! Not a bad idea though…

    joedad – it looked like her to me – one would have to deduce that cgi was used to enhance”” her youthfulness

  426. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    Plus remeber we got Ryan Madson. And his blazing FB and sick change. that was ball 3.

  427. GWFightinsFan

    October 28, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    WTF is with those outside calls??

  428. Georgie

    October 28, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    Lee threw that same pitch and it was called a ball, bs.

  429. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:39 pm

    aww poor Utley, let’s go Howard!

  430. SDO

    October 28, 2009 at 10:39 pm

    i predict this inning will yield howard’s first of many rbis in this series

  431. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:39 pm

    Howard with the 3 run Bomb???

  432. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 10:39 pm

    Okay, Ryan, stay patient I want one gone.

  433. GWFightinsFan

    October 28, 2009 at 10:39 pm

    The umpire strikes out Utley….

  434. HotDogs

    October 28, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    Did anybody read the clips from Tim Donaghy’s book? It’s all about how they would fix games and extend series. Just thought of that watching Utley’s at-bat.

  436. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    well now it’s up to Werth

  437. joedad

    October 28, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    none of those pitches was a strike to Utley

  438. SDO

    October 28, 2009 at 10:41 pm

    that was definitely a poor series of calls for utley’s at bat

  439. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 10:41 pm

    I hope Lee’s effective next inning, he’s gonna be cold as ice with all this stalling Girardi’s doing. Classic Torre tactic – take their best pitcher out of it with mound conferences, coach visits, and general stalling.

  440. Jeff

    October 28, 2009 at 10:41 pm

    They were balls to Utley. These umps are chumps.

  441. j reed

    October 28, 2009 at 10:41 pm

    wow the strike zone suddenly got generous

    Werth is going to do something big here. Time to start believing.

  445. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:43 pm

    It should be 1st/3nd 1 out and 3-0 Phils!. Umps are retards yet again. Make the Tanks earn it. They really don’t need anymore help. Make’em pay Jason!

  446. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:45 pm

    nice walk Werth, let’s go Raul!

  464. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:52 pm

    let’s go Lee!

  465. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 10:53 pm

    The ump just had a bad inning there. But if you have not read these, they are an amazing read and will make you think about sports in a whole new way.

    Beau-ti-ful. Is it queer to say that I want to have Lee’s baby?

  471. Ed R.

    October 28, 2009 at 10:54 pm

    Cliff Lee = the 2nd coming.

    Period, end of story.

    nice 1-2-3 inning for Lee 😀

    yay

  479. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    The Stadium II is beginning to empty out. Except of course for the Phillies Fans! Captain Lee…. What an amazing performance dude!

  480. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    106 pitches. Pull him?

  481. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 10:59 pm

    Lee at 106 pitches

  482. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 11:00 pm

    ah I love 24 😀

  483. Ed R.

    October 28, 2009 at 11:00 pm

    I’d pull him. Especially if you are considering him on short rest.

  484. HotDogs

    October 28, 2009 at 11:01 pm

    NO PULLING!!!! He stayed in in the huge run lead game for a long time!

  485. Ed R.

    October 28, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    I loved 24, 3 years ago. Hasn’t been that great lately. Love Jack and Tony though. They are

  486. Georgie

    October 28, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    Clifton gives me the vapors, good lord, what a fine man!

  487. joedad

    October 28, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    Come one now Cliff. Time to make a left onto the road to the Hall of Fame

  488. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    Nicely done, Chooch, now hit, Jimmy, hit!

  492. GWFightinsFan

    October 28, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    Unless the Phils put a bunch of runs up here, I say keep Lee in. No use taking chances.

  493. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    OK, guys: save some runs for tomorrow…

  494. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    solid double Ruiz

  495. poomie

    October 28, 2009 at 11:04 pm

    keep him in!

  496. joedad

    October 28, 2009 at 11:04 pm

    106 pitches? No question he comes back

  497. HotDogs

    October 28, 2009 at 11:04 pm

    No consideration of short rest. This game must be won. Charlie looks at the game at hand. Nothing before. Nothing after. I say he stays.

  498. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 11:04 pm

  501. Sam

    October 28, 2009 at 11:06 pm

    I go to school in CT, like 35% at least of ppl here are yankee fans. I can’t wait to wear my phillies jersey to class tomorrow.

    PS. ANyone tired of that Jay-Z “New York” song?

  502. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 11:07 pm

    I like the Philly version

    woo Victorino! 😀

  503. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 11:07 pm

    only Francisco and Feliz without hits

  504. AC from NJ

    Go Phils – YEAH BABY!

  505. Ed R.

    October 28, 2009 at 11:08 pm

    Anyone tired of Jay-Z period?

  506. Jimmy

    October 28, 2009 at 11:08 pm

    Daily News Headline tomorrow should be:

    C.hase C.rushes Sabathia!!!!!

    Box Score: Ut Lee dominated Yankees

  507. poomie

    October 28, 2009 at 11:08 pm

    so, so, so sweet, absolute sweetness

  508. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 11:09 pm

    3 runs so far off the Yankees bullpen

  509. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 11:09 pm

    I don’t bring him back. Especially since he’s had yet another long rest. Take him out, let him get the CG in the clincher.

  510. Georgie

    October 28, 2009 at 11:10 pm

    I see they’ve moved the Cialis bathtubs from the beach to the golf course, nice!

  511. HotDogs

    October 28, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    Stay focused everyone! This game has not been won yet. Keep cheering. Keep the towels waving!

  512. Ed R.

    October 28, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    Actually the Headline should read:

    Ut-Lee and Phillies dominate Yankees in game 1.

  513. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    oh wow we could be the first to shutout the Yankees in game 1 of the World Series

  514. ChesapeakePhan

    October 28, 2009 at 11:12 pm

    Actual mlb.com headline: “Umps huddle, correctly rule DP in Game 1”

  515. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 11:13 pm

    Ain’t nothing better than seeing your team bat in the 9th and the broadcast is using gimmicks to maintain interest.

  516. mycruzincooler.com

    October 28, 2009 at 11:13 pm

    Hey, what happened to the Yanker fans? Are you still here?

  517. poomie

    October 28, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    I hear Let’s Go Phillies chants

  518. Jimmy

    Chase 3 hr’s?

  519. SDO

    October 28, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    something tells me the bullpens will be to the key to the series – and right now, the yankee bullpen is looking pretty weak.

  520. Jimmy

    October 28, 2009 at 11:15 pm

    Ahh rough, I must have thought C.C. was still pitching

  521. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 11:15 pm

    Looks like a lot of the Yankee fans left early to beat traffic. Kind of strange being that most of them took the subway.

    Actually, I have been the new stadium. It sucks and is a total pain in the ass to get out of. I don’t blame them.

  522. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 11:15 pm

    @Chesapeake: hehehe. Yeah, you’re probably right.

    Howard’s getting impatient again. Relax, Big Fella.

  525. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 11:17 pm

    alright Howard! 😀

    got Jimmy home

  526. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 11:17 pm

    OK: all we need is 3 outs to shut out the Yankees to start this series. Let’s not get fancy. And let’s hope the Phils have some runs left for the rest of the series.

  527. poomie

    October 28, 2009 at 11:17 pm

    OMG! Another run! RBI Ryan Howard!

  528. ChesapeakePhan

    October 28, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    Tracey, I promise you…I didn’t make it up. They have a news headline about getting a call right…

  529. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    Yep, something like that, Big Fella. Vic got thrown out – was Perlozzo channeling Steve Smith’s spirit?

  530. Morris Buttermaker

    October 28, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    You know what, I was actually stunned when the umps got the double play right. I was not expecting it.

  531. AC from NJ

    October 28, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    Damn…if Victorino scores, I say maybe you don’t bring Lee back out.

    But only up 6-0, guess you have to let him go for the complete game. LOL 🙂

  532. SDO

    October 28, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    RBI #15 and counting for Mr. October.

  533. mycruzincooler.com

    Morris … So was I.

  534. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 11:20 pm

    That new Jay-Z song “Empire State of Mind” is pretty damn good. I can’t hear that one enough. But overall I’m kinda sick of him…

  535. Georgie

    October 28, 2009 at 11:21 pm

    Wow, I didn’t think Charlie would bring Cliff back out, that was a long top of the 9th.

  536. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 11:21 pm

    damn

  537. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 11:21 pm

    When was the last time somebody got a WS CG shutout?

  538. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 11:21 pm

    Damned Yankees always get BS hits like those.

  539. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    Let’s go Lee.

  541. FillyP

    October 28, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    OK – don’t burn Lee’s arm out. We need him for 4, and a potential 7. I say let him have no more than 2 base runners…

  542. HotDogs

    October 28, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    FOCUS EVERYONE!!!!!! LET’S GO LEE! LET’S GO PHILLIES!!!!!! LET’S GO LEE!!!!!!

    Howard ,Mr. ….?

  544. AC from NJ

    October 28, 2009 at 11:23 pm

    ok – I’m getting concerned. How much longer does Charlie stay with Cliff now???

  545. ChesapeakePhan

    October 28, 2009 at 11:23 pm

    Tracey..Beckett had one against the Yanks in Game 6 a couple of years ago.

  546. poomie

    October 28, 2009 at 11:24 pm

    we need a double play ball

  547. Ed R.

    October 28, 2009 at 11:24 pm

    Not that I am concerned yet but this is why I wouldn’t have brought Lee back out.

  548. Tracey

    aw crap

  551. AC from NJ

    October 28, 2009 at 11:25 pm

    shut out is over…time to get Lee out of the there…

  552. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 11:25 pm

    well he can still get his CG

  553. poomie

    October 28, 2009 at 11:26 pm

    we can do it! stay with it! come on Phils!

  554. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 11:26 pm

    Yup. Pretty much. At least we got an out.

  555. Keith

    October 28, 2009 at 11:27 pm

    K # 9 for Lee

    and 3 for A-Rod

  556. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 11:27 pm

    Butttt even at 118 pitches, Cliff Lee is still filthy.

  557. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 11:27 pm

    YES! OK, just one more out…

  558. mycruzincooler.com

    October 28, 2009 at 11:27 pm

    Ed …. Dont be concerned.

  559. poomie

    October 28, 2009 at 11:27 pm

    YES! STRIKEOUT #9! And it’s A-Rod – HAH!

  560. Tracey

    October 28, 2009 at 11:28 pm

    10 K would be nice…

  561. Mike D.

    October 28, 2009 at 11:28 pm

    Strike him out on the knuckleball, Clifton! The knuckleball!

  562. Harry Kalas

    October 28, 2009 at 11:29 pm

    Lee actually is one of those rare pitchers who a little unaffected by pitch counts. Most pitchers rest in between starts. Lee actually throws. He only comes out of games for the most part when he is getting smoked. Whuch has not been all nite.

    Now if they just have a few runs left in them for tomorrow night…

    Wow. What a performance by Lee and Utley. The Phils sent a message tonight that they are not a team who was exhausted after an extra inning game the night before or a team that was just happy they finally beat their post season nemesis. This Phillies team is one that oozes confidence and who wanted to be in this exact position.

    The Yankees will now have to live with this game for 24 hours. Giradi will be second guesses, A Rod will be questioned if he has returned to the A Rod of old in the post season, and the possibility of losing will enter their heads for the first time this offseason. If the Phillies can get to Burnett early tomorrow things are going to get REAL interesting with the Yankees using so much of their bullpen tonight.

    I think the Yankees got knocked back bad tonight and you just know that Pedro Martinez would love to twist the dagger tomorrow.

    Thanks for this win Philles! I gotta go defend my dissertation for my doctorate tomorrow and now I am going into it REAL happy!

    Was it just me or where the PHillies far more patient then the Yankees.
    Gerneral LEE great job, great hitting by Utley, and the offense destroys another bull pen for add on runs. One down three to go

    Great win for the Phightins! Lee, you ate lightning and crapped thunder. Amazing.
    Check out this article from a New York e-paper. http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/yankees/2009/10/28/2009-10-28_inphillyority_complex.html
    The author originally wrote an article dissing the fanatic and cheesesteaks, among other things, so I responded in an e-mail to her. She brought me up in her response article today. Enjoy!

    Now that’s was an arsenal…4 picthes befuddled the Yanks. And that curveball was nasty. Pizza Bagel, you get the quote of the night

    “Lee, you ate lightning and crapped thunder.” Instant classic.
