Back in March, ESPN.com proclaimed, “Phils vs. Yanks Is New Lakers vs. Celtics,” and they may be right after last year’s exciting World Series. The Phils have gone through a horrendous scoring drought, but with Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, and company all healthy, don’t look for that problem to continue over these three nights. The Yanks will likely have Jorge Posada back in the lineup, so they should have no trouble scoring, either—unless Yankee nemesis Roy Halliday is on the mound for the Phils. Bonus on Wednesday night: a complimentary “27-Time World Champions Bottle Opener” courtesy of Budweiser for the first 18,000 fans 21 and older (presumably good for opening at least 27 bottles). Tickets on StubHub available from $22, which is quite a bargain no matter how high up they are.
