2010 Baseball Simulation Gives New York Yankees (Another) World Series Title

Call them World Champions...yet again.

A simulated season on Out of the Park Baseball 11 (www.ootpdevelopments.com) determined that the New York Yankees will win the 2010 World Series over the Philadelphia Phillies.

The title would be the 29th in franchise history but the first one via wild card for the Bronx Bombers, who finished second to Tampa Bay in the American League East with a 95-67 record.

Manager Joe Girardi's team swept AL Central champ Minnesota (87-75) in the division series before flooring a 105-win Rays team with a surprising four-game sweep in the ALCS.

The Yankees appeared to be on the way to a perfect postseason when they took a 3-0 lead on the Phillies, but Philadelphia rallied for three straight wins to force a Game Seven.

New York squelched any chance of a collapse similar to the 2004 ALCS by routing the Phillies 10-1 in the deciding contest.

The Phillies (95-68) needed a one-game playoff win over Atlanta to claim their fourth straight National League East crown. Once in the division series, Philadelphia topped NL West champ Colorado in four games and dispatched St. Louis (98-64) in a seven-game NLCS classic.
