NLCS Game 1: Dodgers (Derek Lowe) at Phillies (Cole Hamels) on Fox, 8:22 p.m.
Why a Yankees fan should care: Lowe will be a free agent and will surely be considered by the Yankees. … If Robinson Cano is traded, the Dodgers could be a partner. … You get to see a real third base coach. Oh, and forget the idea of Larry Bowa coming back to New York. Yes, his contract will be up. But he has made it clear he likes working with Joe Torre. And unless it is forced on him, Girardi isn’t going to want a former manager on his staff who is popular in New York. … Lefty Hong-Chih Kuo, who grew up playing with Chien-Ming Wang in Taiwan, got the final spot in the LA bullpen.
