The Yankees and Phillies took different routes to reach the World Series this year, with one team making waves at the trade deadline and the other essentially standing pat. Chad Jennings takes a look at some key decisions that got these two teams into the Fall Classic.
George Steinbrenner is expected to make a rare appearance at the Stadium for Game 1 tomorrow night, marking only his second visit to the new ballpark for a game (he was also here on Opening Day). Josh Thomson’s notebook also has news on some options for the Yankees rotation and another win – this one in the TV ratings – for the Yankees.
If you’re interested in reading a little more about the two sluggers in the series, Scott Lauber from our sister paper in Wilmington, Del., has a nice piece about Ryan Howard and Alex Rodriguez.
By the way, for those who missed it (or those who just want to re-live it again), check out this post from late, late Sunday night that has a look at some scenes from inside the Yankees ALCS celebration. Back with much more later today.
