Stan's Favorite Paying Customers 6, Big Market Team 1: Don't forget to hold your noses, Nats fans, as you root, root, root for the Phillies along with Stan Kasten this World Series.
Joe Buck (or was it Tim McCarver?) on FOX pointed out late in the game (while Cliff Lee still had his shutout going) that the Yankees were shut out at home in their brand spanking new ballpark just once in 2009: that would be June 18th against your Washington Nationals. Cliff Lee was fantastic last night, but Yankee Killers Craig Stammen, Ron Villone, Julian Tavarez, and Mike MacDougal were even better on June 18th!
Meanwhile...Hey! The umps got one right!
