Pearl Jam is spending this week in residence at the Spectrum and conveniently offering "ring girl" updates for grungy Phillies fans who temporarily chose rock over baseball. Sell outs.
Line up changes for tonight. We have a Matt Stairs sighting! He'll DH for Philly. For the Yankees, Swisher and Posada are out, Hairston and Molina (to catch Burnett) are in. Fortunately for New York, their opponent also has to replace Cliff Lee and his magic glove. Pedro Martinez gets one more chance to take down the hated Yankees before he's cast out into the Atlantic on a flaming barge.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN? WHO WILL PREVAIL? WILL I HAVE ENOUGH NACHOS TO LAST PAST THE SIXTH INNING! I can't wait to find out the answers. Especially the nachos one.
