i have an idea:
let's win tonight and again tomorrow. then, let's win 1 out of the remaining 3 games, thereafter.
!!!!! : )
 I was just thinking before that we really have a credible chance of winning the next two. Andy and CC have both been consistently good enough to win. I don't know about the clowns the other guys are throwing out there, but I like our chances a lot with Andy and CC.
 well, i'm not sure what's up w/ Hamels. he was boy wonder last year and has been erratic this year. he hasn't had great results lately. however, his velocity, K/9, BB/9, HR/9 are pretty much EXACTLY the same as last season. he had a lucky BABIP last year and unlucky this year. i haven't looked at his other peripherals or FIP, but i don't think everything with him is tied into his BABIP.
we need to be patient, see if he can spot his fastball, then sit on his offspeed stuff. i hope we don't miss Matusi's bat too much tonight.
if it's cold and rainy, i wonder how well Hamels will be able to grip the ball and get a feel for his pitches. i trust Andy and with all his postseason experience, i'm not worried about any extraneous factors. i just hope "Good Andy" shows up!
It certainly will be a treat if Andy tricks the Phillies' bats.
Yup, Charlie Brown.
Man, I sure hope this doesn't get rained out. That would kill the off-day and probably make it impossible for CC to get two more starts.
The weather up here in Montreal is frightful...what's going on in Philly? What's the forecast?
 Alex, why should a rainout threaten CC's starts? Couldn't the Yankees just skip Andy's turn and start CC in game 3 on Sunday? Then pitch Pettitte monday (game 4), AJ tuesday (game 5), and still save CC for game 7 on Thursday?
The only issue would be game 6, which would have to fall on Gaudin.
LoHud has the lineups. Looks like the Yanks are going with their standard NL lineup: Swisher in RF, Pettitte batting 9th, everyone else where you would expect them.
That's a big issue, Gaudin getting a start. I just can't see that happening no matter what happens.
