No hitting + no bullpen = no chance. Burnett vs. Pedro means the Yankees will be down 2-0 heading into Philadelphia. This is 1996, and these Phillies are far tougher than the Braves team that choked against the Yankees that year. It would appear that Jimmy Rollins's prediction of Phillies in 5 was, if anything, overly pessimistic.

Well, this wouldn't be the first time the Yankees opened a new Yankee Stadium by getting swept in the World Series by the defending champions. (Of course, when they opened the original, they beat the defending champions. I wonder if there's a lesson there.)
