|Weather Iffy for World Series Game One
|NEW YORK (AP) -- There could be more soggy weather in the Bronx for Game 1 of the World Series Wednesday night.
National Weather Service meteorologist John Murray says there's a 30 percent chance of showers for the opener between the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees. The gametime temperature is expected to be about 47 degrees.
Cliff Lee, Pedro Martinez and Cole Hamels are the Phillies' scheduled starters for the first three games. The Yankees will go with CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettitte.
Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins is pretty confident. He said on the "Jay Leno Show" Monday that, "If we're nice we'll let it go six (games), but I'm thinking five. Close it out at home."
