Phillies vs. AL East

Dan O'DonnellContributor IJune 14, 2010

After battling the AL East in the last two World Series’, the Phillies find themselves in familiar territory. This past weekend, Philadelphia did not fair too well when they visited Fenway Park to take on the Red Sox. Although they won the last game, they got outmatched in every way possible the first two times.

Now, Phillies find themselves visiting the Yankees for the second straight spring. Philadelphia is looking to partially avenge their previous World Series loss to New York. On Tuesday, two of the MLB’s best go at it as Roy Halladay and C.C. Sabathia both take the mound. After that, the Phillies are stuck with Kyle Kendrick and Joe Blanton pitching.

One thing is for sure; there will be a lot of home runs hit. That is, if Philadelphia’s lineup decides to show up.
