Even if the night is clear and the moon is yellow, will it be seen through that dome? (I should know, but I don't remember, if the Rays' stadium has a retractable roof.) And in the Tampa Bay area, I don't think the leaves will come tumbling down.

Just going up and down that list just gives you goosebumps. I watched A LOT of those games.

Looking ahead to the presumptive Halladay/Lincecum matchup in NLCS Game 1, does anyone know of a prior LCS or WS opener pitting a reigning Cy Young Award winner against the guy who would win it for the current year? (Not that Halladay is a lock for this year's CYA, but he's got to be the heavy favorite.)

The only real blemish on either line is the 3 BBS by Morris.

I agree about Zito-Martinez being the best ace vs. ace, since most of the other match-ups there are ace vs. jack.
