Phils World Series Rotation Set

Phillies manager Charlie Manuel revealed his starting rotation for the World Series today. This article from the Philly newspapers says that Manuel will go with Hamels, Myers, Moyer and Blanton in Games 1 through 4. Readers of this blog will notice that this is not what I had suggested yesterday, given my fear of Jamie Moyer pitching Game 3 (the first game at home) and giving up runs in the top of the first inning. A haiku on my unheeded advice:

Well, what do I know?
Moyer would pitch Game Seven.
He's ninety years old!

After all the drama, we are playing the Rays. Oh well, at least we won't face Garza in game 1.

On the rotation--I think we should switch Blanton and Moyer.

Charlie is stubborn,
this we know, and all too well.
But Moyer will rise.
