Pregame talk: World Series Game 6

Tonight could be a good night. A very, very good night for Yankees fans. The stage is set. Two postseason poised pitchers, Andy Pettitte and Pedro Martinez, set to duke it out. For the Yankees, a World Series ring is on the line. For the Phillies, a chance to extend the series and repeat as champions. First pitch: 7:57 p.m. EST.

Phillies Lineup: Yankees Lineup:
Jimmy Rollins SS Derek Jeter SS
Shane Victorino CF Johnny Damon LF
Chase Utley 2B Mark Teixeira 1B
Ryan Howard 1B Alex Rodriguez 3B
Jayson Werth RF Hideki Matsui DH
Raul Ibanez DH Jorge Posada C
Pedro Feliz 3B Robinson Cano 2B
Ben Francisco LF Nick Swisher RF
Carlos Ruiz C Brett Gardner

I thought Joe Girardi might swap Cano and Swisher because of Cano’s awful postseason slump. And now Swisher seems to be getting back on track. Otherwise, I like the series back in the American League with the DH. It gives the Yankees the advantage with Hideki Matsui now.
