In a season that has featured numerous wacky twists and turns, I guess it is only fitting that it ends this way. Congratulations to the Phillies. This team exemplified heart and character while overcoming all obstacles put in their way. I have rooted against the Phillies in every playoff series for obvious reasons, but I must admit that their style of play is both fun to watch and entertaining. Even though the series ended in five, the quality of the games was rather good and MLB should be happy about that.
As much as I hate/despise seeing a rival win it all, they deserved it. Hopefully we'll get ya back for it in 2009.
