COMPLETE LEE: There's not much to say about Game One of the World Series -- Cliff Lee was brilliant with both his arms -- a complete-game six hitter with no walks and ten strikeouts from the left, and from the right you've got the choice of the nonchalant pop-up, the behind-the-back-grab or the tag on Posada. Chase Utley took care of the rest.
In thinking about tonight, the anticipation level about Pedro Martinez returning to the Bronx is just ridiculous, and I'm trying to figure out what other visting-athlete-at-venue matchups have this level of tension and drama attached to them. Reggie Miller at Madison Square Garden comes to mind first, and this Sunday conveniently features the return of That Fun-Loving Gunslinger Who's Just Having Fun Out There to Lambeau Field. I suppose Bill Simmons would want me to highlight Wayne Gretzky's return to Edmonton, but it's hard to think of other combinations which are on this level -- which is why I have y'all. Time to visit Daddy.
