    The Yankees have their own version of special teams, it's called the bullpen, Rivera notwithstanding.

Now I certainly wouldn't want to see that scenario transpire but it's not like asking the Yankees to beat Pedro Martinez and then win a game with CC on the mound would be an extremely difficult task.
    TD explained himself, but I'd add: While this is not a "must win," this is a crucial game for the Yanks.

    It's like breaking serve in Tennis. The Yanks just broke Phillie's serve and they need to hold serve in winning tonight because the Yanks have the obvious pitching advantage.

    No matter how we spin it, the Phillies own the pitching advantage tomorrow between Lee-AJ. With CC up there, there won't be a bigger matchup disparity in the Yank's favor this whole series.

    When you have your bona fide Ace vs. the 4th starter, you have to win.

    I guess my view is that in any given World Series, ANY game is too easily slapped with the "huge" name tag. Given that the Yankees still have HF advantage, and that Lee isn't going to be available for a game 7 start barring at least 2 days of weather delays, the situation is not nearly as dire as people would make it out to be should the Yankees lose game 4.

    I tend to agree with that, but certain games are more significant than others.

    For instance, game 1 of this WS was not as crucial as game 2 for the Yanks. Being 0-2 and going to Philly would have been tough as hell. The best they could hope for was being down 2-3 going back to NY. Now, with a win in game 2 and game 3, the Yanks have the chance to be at worst up 3-2 going back home.

    A loss tonight and the Yanks could be looking at going home down 2-3. A win with the obvious pitching advantage tonight puts the Yanks on the cusp of a championship.

    Regardless...

    GO YANKEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hate these scumbag phillies and their fans. How is this warning going to effect CCs game now? They did that on purpose.

    This is ****ing bull**** that was obviously intentional, Arod was getting walked in that situation with first base open regardless. And now, because the umps are ****ing retarded we can't do anything about it. That's the third time Arod's been hit, I don't think we've hit any of their batters once. But somehow the Yankees bench gets warned

    Because the phlillies are getting desperate and they figure by hitting Arod and getting both teams warned they can take away CCs inside game.

    Sweet, the Philly fans start a "CC sucks" chant and he strikes out Howard on the next pitch.
