We officially have our World Series matchup: Yankees vs. Phillies. While we wait for the fall classic to kick off Wednesday here are some links to get you through a Monday morning:
- Phil Sheridan of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that UK alum Joe Blanton and the Phillies’ retooled rotation are driving Philadelphia this postseason.
- WKU Sports breaks down the 2010 WKU baseball schedule.
- EKU alum Neil Sellers is now batting .313 with one home run and nine RBI in 13 games in the Liga Mexicana del Pacifico.
- Sellers’ Winter League teammate and fellow Phillies’ prospect UofL alum B. J. Rosenberg has surrendered five runs in five innings with two saves. He has four strikeouts and one walk.
- In Baseball America’s “Scout’s Diary” an anonymous pro scout provides an excellent breakdown of the general Arizona Fall League talent. This AFL season you can see 2009 Bats Chris Heisey, Yonder Alonso, Logan Ondrusek and Sean Watson plus 2009 Legend Daniel Meszaros and Lafayette alum Chaz Roe.
