FightinPhillies.com catches up with a NY Yankee blogger, Brandon Cohen and his blog NYYPinstriper and asks 10 questions:
1. What is your prediction now that the Phils and the Yankees are tied 1-1 in the World Series so far who will win it?
I'm thinking Yankees in 7. Yankees win game 3, Phillies game 4, Phillies game 5, Yankees game 6, Yankees game 7.
2. Who will finish better batting now that they've both had two games into the Series : Ryan Howard or Alex Rodriguez?
Alex Rodriguez. No one has been clutcher or better this postseason and he has to break out of it eventually. Howard will be good in the rest of the WS also, I think.
3. Phillies or Yankees who has the better food at the stadium?
Never been to Citizen Bank, but in my opinion the food at Yankee Stadium is average. I give it a 7/10. Lots of choices, but high prices for medium quality.
4. What team will finish the series with more home runs?
I am actually going to choose the Phillies. I think with all their lefties and the short forch in right for Yankee Stadium they will hit more.
5. Who will get MVP of the Series?
Going with a different choice than I ever expected. I'll give two choices. A.J. Burnett and Mariano Rivera. If Rivera keeps getting 2 inning saves then he will win it, if he only gets one I go with Burnett who will pitch well in his second start.
6. "New York, New York" or "Philadelphia Freedom" what is the better song?
Gotta go with New York, New York. Gotta love Sinatra.
7. Who's better Jorge Posada or Carlos Ruiz in this World Series?
So far Ruiz in my opinion. By the end of the series I think it will be a tie.
8. Lee or Sabathia who's better, who's best?
I say Lee is better this postseason but if you give me one pitcher for the next 10 seasons I would pick CC without hesitation.
9. Should the Yankees and the Phillies play more interleague games?
Personally, I like the current system. I don't mind interleague, but more interleague games would make it too much.
10. Who is your favorite Phillies player of all time and why?
Jim Thome. Kind of random, I know but I have always respected him and he is one of my favorite non-Yankees.
