TIME/TV: 7:57 p.m., FOX

Aces Wild: CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee both have microscopic ERA's this postseason, so this first game is set up to be a classic pitcher's duel.

It's been a while: This is the first World Series Game in the Bronx since Game 6 of the 2003 Series. The Yankees are also looking for their first Fall Classic win since Game 3 of that 2003 Series.

Take one: It's important for the Yankees to win the games at Yankee Stadium, particularly Game 1. This is for two reasons: 1) CC is on the mound 2) If you lose Game 1, you turn Game 2 into almost a must-win as you go to Philly for Game 3.

Enjoy the game everyone
