World Series Game 6 Open Thread

New, comments

The Philadelphia Phillies showed they're still "The Fightins" by winning Monday's Game 5, and sending the World Series back to New York.  Did they regain momentum in this series, or do the Yankees still have an insurmountable lead?  

For the third straight game, the Yanks will start a pitcher on short rest.  Joe Girardi has a 50% success rate on this, with CC Sabathia pitching well and A.J. Burnett faltering.  Could this aggressive approach end up backfiring on the Yankees' manager?

The starting pitchers for Game 6 are Pedro Martinez for the Phillies and Andy Pettitte for the Yankees.

(And how can you not love the cover of today's New York Post?)
