This is a series that really favors the Phillies because of the starting pitching and the fact that the Phillies’ lineup is like a Murderer’s Row. Lefty starting pitchers have owned the Rockies this season and the Phillies have three good ones in Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels and J.A. Happ (who will likely be used out of the bullpen). The Phillies do have issues in the back end of the bullpen but Ryan Madson has pitched really well in the post season in his career and I see no reason for that to change now. The Phillies just have too much firepower for the Rockies to deal with.
PREDICTION: PHILLIES IN FOUR GAMES
