…I’m reminded of how smart I am.
Just remember, fans, what I said about the Phillies’ starting pitching a few days back in my “Subjective Analysis”:
PHI: Cole Hamels/Brett Myers/Jamie Moyer/Joe Blanton
TB: Scott Kazmir/Jamie Shields/Matt Garza/Andy Sonnanstine
ANALYSIS: The “experts” say Hamels is the best pitcher in the Series, and I agree. But I don’t agree with their assessments of the rest of these guys. They’re all over the Phils, saying they really have no depth beyond Hamels and that the Rays kids are flat-out awesome. Not taking anything away from them, they’re good and they faced tough competition all year in the AL East. I just think this matchup is closer than many might think – that there’s something to be said for Moyer’s experience and smarts, and Blanton’s ability to keep the ball down.
All that being said, I do have to give the Slight Edge to the RAYS.”
