In the wake of last night's 6-1 win by the Phillies over the Yankees in the first game of the 2009 World Series, in which lefthander Cliff Lee held New York to only six hits in his complete game gem, questions abound for Yanks manager Joe Girardi.
Yankee's right fielder Nick Swisher in in an horrendous post season slump- should speedy Brett Gardner get the start in center, and slide Melky Cabrera to right field?
Will tonight's starter AJ Burnett have personal catcher Jose Molina, or the better offensive weapon Jorge Posada behind the plate?
After the last night's disaster from the bullpen quartet of Phil Hughes, Phil Coke, Brian Bruney and David Robertson, does Girardi tab the enigmatic Joba Chamberlain to be Mariano Rivera's setup man in the 8th and 9th innings?
And potentially down the road....will Girardi go to a fourth starter if necessary in this Series or go with a three man rotation, with a possible three starts by workhorse CC Sabathia?
And people say baseball is boring and nothing ever happens! I scoff at them!
