Lee's been slightly better in the postseason. Lee faced the Yanks twice this year. Pitched well both times; a lot better in NY. 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA. Also threw a gem (7 scoreless) in New York last year in the only game he faced them.
Sabathia faced the Phils once this year at home and lost 4-3. 3.37 ERA. Also, got absolutely smoked last year in the playoffs by the Phils
I'll be on Lee + money in a pretty even all around matchup. Phils won't be intimidated and are the best road team in baseball.
Btw, I've seen a lot of Yanks fans saying "Yanks in 5". Hope they know that game is in Philly and the scheduled starters are Lee vs either Burnett on 3 days rest or Gaudin LMAO
I'll post some comments I made in another thread. Feel free to share your thoughts.
Last year, this conference gave us 4 1 seeds and was arguably one of the best conferences of all time.
This year, no 1 seeds, but it will be more competitive from top to bottom.
I love Seton Hall this year. I think they are tourney bound. They will definitely make a big jump in the Big East.
They bring Pope and Garcia back down low (one of the better low blocks
in the Big East especially if this freshman from Memphis can step in).
Their scoring star Hazell is back and Harvey as well running the point. They also get Keon Lawrence, transfer from Mizzou.
Dangerous team. Alright, I'll stop. Just haven't rambled hoops in a while
Think about how much the top tier teams in the Big East lost to graduation:
Notre Dame: Macalerny, Ayers, Hillesland, Zeller although Gody back
Ville: Williams, Mcgee, Clark
Uconn: Adrien, Price, Austrie, Thabeet
Pitt: Fields, Young, Biggs and Blair
Cuse: Flynn, Dievendorf, Harris
Marquette: Mcneal, Burke, Matthews, James
Nova: Cunningham, Clark, Anderson although backcourt will be fine
and Wvu are in better positions. Both bring back their best players
(Monroe and Butler) and bring back most everyone else. Ruoff and
Summers did leave
Then you have these bottom feeders of last
year that bring EVERYBODY back. See: Seton Hall, St Johns and Cincy. All three will make a big jump. Rutgers to a certain extent, but the talent just isn't there.
Providence, Depaul and South Florida will be brutal. No surprise there.
Unders are tough the first week, but how will Tech/Bama get to 40?
Thinking NC State comes out and throttles SC.
I think Navy can hang around. Looking for anything north of 18.5 here.
Illy with revenge should roll.
Cal the same.
Nevada/Notre Dame has shatter job written all over it. Why is Notre Dame laying 17 here? Seems artificially high....which means they win by 30+
Gut feeling that Washington sticks around and has a shot to pull a shocker. 2 td's looks good/ML worth a shot
Would love for Utah to throttle State so I can hit Sjsu (coming off their USC annihilation) as juicy home dog in week 2. Utes will be coming off a big home opening win against an in state rival with a huge game at Georgia on deck.
Ok State should beat Uga by double digits.
And, I'm hoping for Bama to be in an absolute war. It will take big nuts, but then I think you fade them week 2 at home against FIU. I know, I said it will take big nuts. National coming out party for Hilton.
3-6 first two rounds. 5-4 was not too far out of the picture considering two of the losses were the SD under and the Kent under. I did get some luck on the Wazu under. Probably shouldve been 4-5.
22-10 in March
Ucla/Tamu Under 126
Washington State -2.5
West Virginia +4.5
Mich State +6/Wisco -.5
