Not surprisingly, the Yankees are off today. One would imagine the cleaning staff at Yankee Stadium, on the other hand, is hard at work.
Tomorrow is the official World Series media day, with both teams doing workouts at Yankee Stadium. There will be press conferences with the managers and Game 1 starters (CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee), as well as plenty of clubhouse access for reporters. We’ll be blogging all day, of course.
On Wednesday, The Journal News and LoHud.com will produce its comprehensive World Series special section. We’ll have all types of coverage, scouting reports, match-ups and more. Also on Wednesday, Chad and I are planning to do another live video chat to answer all your questions about the Yankees-Phillies match-up. We’ve had a great time with the earlier ones this postseason, and if you want to check those out to see what to expect, go here.
Then, of course, comes the main event. Wednesday night, Game 1, Yankee Stadium. Unlike the ALCS, there are no weird off days in the series, so it’s the standard layout: Games 1 & 2 at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday and Thursday; Games 3, 4 & 5 in Philly on Saturday, Sunday and Monday; then Games 6 and 7 back in the Bronx on Wednesday and Thursday.
It’s going to be a great week. Keep checking back all day everyday for non-stop coverage from all of us.
UPDATE, 10:06 a.m.: For those who are looking for pictures from last night, check out this gallery of photos from the game itself.
