Game -9: Lester And Halladay Face Off In Battle Of The Aces

I suppose it's not really an unusual occurence to have a battle of aces in Philadelphia. So long as the opponent is throwing their top guy, after all, they'll almost certainly be throwing one of theirs.

Really, if you look at the names in our rotation, you get the feeling that Philly's is our's done right.

Oh well. For today, at least, we've got one of the best in Jon Lester.
