Can The Phillies Pull This One Off?
Okay, so the Cubs couldn't make it to the World Series...again. Nothing new there folks, we haven't won it in 100 years, and haven't even been there in 63. But this year, the team with the worst franchise history in all of baseball is poised to win it all. Everyone thought they were finished back in July when they traded for Joe Blanton. Joe who? Oh, you mean the pitcher who hit a home run in the 5th inning to help win Game 4? Yeah, that guy. The first pitcher in 34 years to hit a homer in the World Series. How did he do it? "I just close my eyes and swing hard in case I make contact," Blanton said. "That's really the only thing I can say." Well, if that's what it takes for a guy with two total hits in his entire big league career, why not?
Tonight's the night to see if the Phillies can pull this one off. Here's hoping they succeed. Let's Go Phillies!
