Yankees: Facing the Champs

Congratulations to the Yankees. I think (hope) that it will be a great series and go 7. They've fared pretty well over the years facing the defending champs, although most of those times they were simply getting revenge for getting beaten the year before:

World Series - Yankees faced the Defending Champs
1922: NY Giants (Lost 4-0-1) rematch
1923: NY Giants (Won 4-2) rematch
1943: St. Louis Cardinals (Won 4-1) rematch
1956: Brooklyn Dodgers (Won 4-3) rematch
1958: Milwaukee Braves (Won 4-3) rematch
1976: Cincinnati Reds (Lost 4-0)
1996: Atlanta Braves (Won 4-2)
2009: Philadelphia Phillies?
