It's amazing what having Cliff Lee does to the Phillies rotation.  Now they are up 1-0 and are pitching Cole Hamels.  That's gotta be a huge boost to them.  Aaron Cook is no pushover though, so this should be a pretty good game.  Of course, now that I've just talked about the pitching, it'll probably be a 10-9 game.

Expect to hear a lot of talk in this game about a 21-year old starting a playoff game, but Clayton Kershaw is more than just a regular 21-year old.  Adam Wainwright is in contention for the Cy Young award this year, but I can't see him topping Tim Lincecum or his teammate Chris Carpenter.  Should be a good pitching matchup in this one.

Next Game

Jon Lester vs John Lackey

Mostly clear. Winds blowing out to left field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game time temperature around 60.

Finally, as predicted in the Bible, we'll see the epic battle of the proper way to spell Jo(h)n.  Jon Lester vs. John Lackey.  Will the "h" prevail, or will its superfluousness be proven.  Tune in to find out!
