Each October morning, the Stew will take a look at what they're writing about in the papers of the postseason teams

• How old is Game 3 starter Jamie Moyer? He skipped school in 1980 to celebrate the Phillies 1980 World Championship writes Bob Ford. []

• If it weren't for Cole Hamels, it'd be believe this series is tied at one. The Phils are 1-for-28 with runners in scoring position. []

Ryan Madson's stock just keeps rising, writes Jim Salisbury. Consider this: The hard-throwing right-hander made just $1.4 million this year and is represented by Scott Boras ... Yep, I think he is going to get a raise this winter. []

• Charlie Manuel just wants everybody to relax ... it is a seven-game series after all. []

• Manuel and company are still confident they can win this Series, and as David Murphy points out, the Rays are a different team when they play on the road. []

• A great story about Chase Utley and the kindness he showed to a special fan. []

• Tampa Bay fans are too nice? Of course they are, compared to Philly fans. [Tampa Tribune]

Evan Longoria is hitting just .220 in the postseason with 15 strikeouts. Martin Fennelly just wants everybody to remember that the kid is only 23 though. [Tampa Tribune]

David Price and his 98 mph fastball are impressing everybody right now ... including the Philly hitters. [Tampa Tribune]

• The Rays' pitchers are ready to hit in Philadelphia, and hoping for a little luck in the process. [Tampa Tribune]

• John Romano is trying to figure out which Tampa Bay GM deserves more credit: Former GM Chuck LaMar or current GM Andrew Friedman. I think the choice is easy. While Lamar might have laid some of the groundwork, it was Friedman who brought everything together. Plus, LaMar was the one who put together a team featuring Jose Canseco, Greg Vaughn, and Vinny Castilla. Yikes. [St. Pete Times]

• Game 3 starter Matt Garza has really turned a corner is his career writes Gary Shelton. If he didn't reign in his emotions earlier in the year, the Rays were thinking about sending him to the minors, now he finds himself in the World Series. [St. Pete Times]
