Game 75: The Final Showdown

So much has been made of this three game series between the Dodgers and the Yankees. Torre vs. his old team. Mattingly vs. his old team. Torre vs. Rodriguez. Even with all of that, doesn't it just feel like a regular series? We were treated to a great performance by Sabathia, a horrendous performance by Burnett, and now get to see Pettitte try to salvage the series win.

Pettitte is facing his old manager and his ace, Clayton Kershaw. It will be the battle of the lefties, one old, one young, both trying to win the series for their manager named Joe.

As for the overflow, you guys get the choice. Would you like a scheduled overflow for 10:15 PM in case I have something crazy happen and I'm not at the laptop (I plan on being here all night) or would you like to take the very slim chance of me not being here and just let me know in the comments when you want one. If for some odd reason I'm not here when you want one, shoot me an email. Your choice, let me know right away.
