Manny Ramirez looked like Barry Bonds, circa 2002, but it still didn’t matter. The Phillies are headed to next week’s World Series after defeating the Dodgers easily, 4 games to 1.
Cole Hamels pitched another gem, and Jimmy Rollins hit another big leadoff home run. I know this was probably tough to watch if you’re a Met fan, but I have two questions:
1. Did you watch?
2. Will this season sting even more if the Phillies win the World Series?
We had a debate two nights ago at the office about whether or not the Phillies winning the pennant would trouble Mets fans. There was no consensus. The World Series, however, was a far different story.
To this point, a couple guys I work with have basically given up on the postseason without the Mets around. Needless to say, they’ll be watching next week. A Philly championship would be tough for them to stomach.
