If you were nervous about the Tampa Bay Rays pulling through at the start of October -- or after Game 5 of the ALCS -- you can calm down. They may just be the best team in baseball.
The Pitch hosts Joe Aiello and Brandon Rosage package their excitement for the Rays with a fair analysis of the Philadelphia Phillies, who boast the better bullpen and quite possibly the better outfield and bench.
The guys go position-by-position, comparing Phils slugger Ryan Howard to Rays 1B Carlos Pena, B.J. Upton to Shane Victorino and rotation to rotation.
Who wins? Who fails? Who steals more bases? The discussion continues on the World Series preview edition of The Pitch. Listen in and participate via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or in the comments.
