Fire and Ice Face off in World Series
In a rematch of last season's World Series contenders, the Buffalo Blizzard will face the Trenton Fire in this year's edition. The Fire made it to their second consecutive world series after defeating San Antonio in the League Championship series in 6 games. The well-rested Buffalo team enters the World Series undefeated in post-season play after sweeping the Iowa City Bison and the El Paso Fighting Tacos. The series should be an evenly matched affair. Although Buffalo seems to have a slight edge in offense, Trenton's 105 regular season wins came riding on great pitching and superb defense. Leading Cy-Young award candidate Andrew Baxter, who went 23-3 in the regular season after an incredible World Series performance last year, will be missing from the defending champions due to a shoulder aneurysm. Game action starts tomorrow in Trenton.
