World Series Game #5: Rays vs. Phillies, Monday 10/27, 7:30 CT

If the World Series should end tonight -- and with Cole Hamels going for the Phillies, the home team should be favored -- it will, despite having a couple of close and well-played games, go down in history as yet another one-sided series with little drama. The teams get my thanks tonight for going with the same pitching matchup as in Game #1, saving me the trouble of retyping.
