Poor Cleveland?

I’m sure the next time a sports fan in Cincinnati feels bad for one in Cleveland, it will be the first time. But you can’t help but wince a little for Indians fans when seeing the World Series Game 1 starting pitcher match-up.

Cliff Lee for the Phillies vs. CC Sabathia for the Yankees. They were the last two American League Cy Young Award winners…for the Indians. Sabathia in 2007 and Lee in 2008.

Ouch.

Of course, the Indians just had a lousy season and face a long road back to contender status.

My prediction for what it’s worth — Phillies will win the Series in seven games even though I don’t like the week-long layoff they’ll get.

Whatever the case, I think this will be one of the most exciting World Series in a long time. Both teams have an exceptional lineup, and an amazing bullpen! I am pulling for Philly also! The only thing that would make this a more exciting World Series would be if it featured the Reds!
