The World Series rematch is the headliner today (sorry, Darrelle), and Andrew Marchand has a preview of today’s Sabathia-Halladay showdown that cleverly draws in Cliff Lee. Mark Simon explains why Roy Halladay is the greatest living Yankee-killer (no joke). We’ll also have a retrospective of the Yanks-Phils Fall Classic, featuring a high-impact Zoom photo gallery.
Two nice off-day pieces carry over for the Mets to preview the road series in Cleveland: How Jason Bay rediscovered his stroke (by Adam Rubin), and how Jerry Manuel draws inspiration from a photo he keeps on his wall (by Johnette Howard). Rubin will be at the Jake, or whatever they call it now. The House of Fleas?
The Giants open minicamp today and we have a preview … but seriously, what will Revis do or say next? Rich Cimini is in Florham Park for Day 2, and Ohm Youngmisuk and Jane McManus are huddled up with the Giants.
Ian O’Connor tees up Game 6 of the NBA Finals with a Doc Rivers column, remembering how Doc was on the bench in 1994 for a Knicks team that was in the same position as the Celtics are now. Lots of old-school Knicks nuggets in the piece.
