The World Series returns to Philadelphia after a one year absence. Cole Hamels, the hero of the 2008 postseason, goes for the Phillies against the Yankees' Andy Pettitte, the all-time leader in postseason victories. Despite a 3.83 postseason ERA which is just a touch below his regular season 3.91 mark. And the fact that he had the good fortune of playing on some tremendous teams during the three-tiered playoff era. Good pitcher in the regular season, good pitcher in the postseason. Nothing magical. But I digress...
Big implications here. Obviously. It's the World Series.
Discuss the game below.
