Phillies/Yankees World Series Predictions

Here are the predictions from the Phillies Nation crew:

Jason Bintliff:
My prediction is more of a feeling than it is scientific…

When the season started, I felt that the Phillies would make an earnest run at a title defense. I predicted early on, to my closest baseball confidant and best friend, that the Phillies would play the Yankees in the World Series, as we froze in section 303 during the on-deck series against the Rays. That was April 4th.

I also had a number in my head at the time and boldly proclaimed to him that the Phillies would repeat as champions. As we sat in the upper reaches of right-field, I said to him that the Phillies would again win it in five games.

Call it a premonition, call it bravado caused by winning a title the previous season, but those were my words. Perhaps it’s more than a coincidence that when our postseason ticket order form arrived, the game that we received for the World Series was game five.

Pat Gallen:
Many believe this series is one that is destined for seven games; one that will take its place amongst the finest in history. I think it goes one less.

I’m taking the Phillies in six. Last season, I privately believed the Phillies would lose to the Dodgers, and then again to the Rays. I was wrong, and it will be a long time before I count this team out in any way, shape, or form. This team has a winning mentality that is unmatched in the history of this city. That says a lot.

The Yankees are no slouch, that much we know. However, they’ve done the repeating thing before and everyone in this town can feel it’s the Phillies time. It’s just their time. Celebrate safely together on Wednesday evening, November 4. See you at the Parade on Friday, November 6. Broad Street, here we come again.

Amanda Orr:
In 2007, I predicted that the Phillies would beat the Rockies in the NLDS. I haven’t made a playoff prediction since. It worked out in 2008, and so far in 2009, so why change that? Cliche? Superstition? You bet – but also take it as a favor. That’s what a fan does: stick with what is working. With that being said, I’ll be sitting in the same seat. I will make one exception: the series goes six games.

Nick “Beerman” Staskin:
I’m going with the Phillies in 6 games. The Phillies had New York’s number at the Bronx during Memorial Day weekend and should have swept had it not been for a falty backend of the bullpen that seems to have corked its leaks. Tie that in with the Phillies post-All Star Break home record and their 11-1 home record at The Bank during the last two postseasons and I see the Phillies stealing two in New York to take the series.

Brian Michael:
I’m going with Phillies in 5 – just like last year.  They proved already this season they can win in Yankee Stadium and will take 1 of 2 up there – probably Game 1 against C.C. Then the Phils will sweep the Yanks at home in Philly where they’ve been nasty in the playoffs over the past two seasons.  All the games will be close but high scoring, except when Lee pitches.  Parade’s on November 4th.
