Can Pedro Turn The Tables On The Yankees, Or Will We See #27 Tonight? [World Series Game 6 Live Thread]

11/4/09 in MLB   |   Pat   |   5232 respect

Tonight, Pedro Martinez and Andy Pettitte will face off in a retro matchup of two of the better pitchers we've seen over the past decade or so. Martinez has the benefit of full rest, while Pettitte is taking the mound on only 3 days rest, and we'll see if that effects his performance.

61% of FanIQ users picked the Yankees to win, and take home the Commissioner's Trophy for the 27th time. Personally, I think the Phillies will win this one, because I think their bats will come alive against Pettitte, much like they did against AJ Burnett.

One of the big problems for the Phillies could prove to be their bullpen, however. If I were Charlie Manuel, I wouldn't have a ton of confidence in the guys coming out of the pen.

The game starts at 7:57 pm EST on FOX. If you're watching the game, chat it up here, and as always, enjoy the game!

As much as I hate to admit it, the Yankees were the best team in this series.  They definitely deserved to win.  Congrats to them!

Love the Yankees and want them to win but have respect for Pedro Martinez. Not to mention Matsui is on fire.

See you folks later, i'm about to go on E-Bay and order my new ,blue championship Yankees hat!!

11/4/09   |   jldunc   |   54 respect

Matsui is dialed in!!  You kidding me?  He's plastering that ball every time he makes contact!

11/4/09   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Ugh. Damn you Matsui.

11/4/09   |   Heyhey1970   |   194 respect

That was a garbage call on A-Rod, but you have to protect the plate in that situation.  He should already know that Joe West is a horrible balls-and-strikes umpire.

11/4/09   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Big, big, big, big strikeout. Now get Hideki please.

11/4/09   |   Joe_L   |   12372 respect

Got him way to go Pedro

11/4/09   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

There ya go Ruiz. 2-1.

11/4/09   |   Joe_L   |   12372 respect

Ha a triple good great base running

11/4/09   |   Chief_aka_James   |   3307 respect

Nice comeback for Pedro after the Matsui HR. Get some offense from the bottom of the order, Philly.

I guess watching Flynn is better than watching what he left behind at Syracuse. Losing to LeMoyne, ouch.

Don't want to change this into a basketball thread too, but it's all Al Jefferson and Jonny Flynn versus KG. Great game so far. 11 points for Al now.

Is it bad that I'm watching the Flynn's (T-Wolves) vs. Celtics more than this game? Just give me a game 7 to watch somewhat tomorrow while Office/Community/30 Rock is on..

I need TiVo.
