The current rules for the World Series (and for that matter, interleague play) gives an advantage to National League teams. In the American League ballparks, the National League team gets to DH for its pitcher, which is usually by far the worst batter on the team. In the National League ballparks, the American League team has to bat its pitcher, many who have only batted once or twice all season (in the earlier interleague games!). So, the National League team gets to either have a good hitter bat for its worst batter, or have a relatively-experienced batting pitcher go up against a black hole of a pitcher. Of course, now the Yankee pitchers will start knocking the cover off of the ball.
