Fan Poll: Yankees Beat Phillies
NEW YORK (AP) -- Baseball fans say it's the Yankees year.

An Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll released Tuesday shows fans think New York will beat the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series and that Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez will be the Series MVP.

Asked to pick the winner of the Series, 64 percent of fans chose New York, with 36 percent predicting the Phillies would win their second title in a row.

The majority of fans also said they would prefer either having a designated hitter in both the American League and National League parks or no DH at all as opposed to the current system, under which there is a DH in AL stadiums but not in NL parks.

How much would fans pay to see a World Series game? Fifty-eight percent say they wouldn't go above $100.
