World Series Game 1: A tale of two Indians

Once upon a time, CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee started in the same rotation for six years. Sabathia took home the Cy Young Award in 2007, and Lee earned the extra hardware in 2008. Tonight, they will oppose each other in what could be one of the most exciting World Series of the decade.

Both lefty aces have been lights out this postseason, and both bring similar pitching repertoires to the table. Sabathia will be a little faster, but the changeup and sliders are similar.

Although I haven’t gotten a chance to watch one of Lee’s starts live, it seems from the highlights he is back to his Cy Young form after starting off 2009 very shakily.

Unfortunately, I have a tight schedule the rest of the day here in Austin. I’m representing the sports section for the Quinnipiac student-run newspaper, The Chronicle, at the National College Media Convention. I hopefully will be watching the game at a fancy restaurant tonight, and will be tweeting @lenNYsYankees regardless.
