Phillies advance to World Series

The Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Joe Torre-led Dodgers to win the National League pennant tonight. Needless to say, my Mets fan roommate is unhappy.

He's probably feeling how I felt in 2004 when the Red Sox made the World Series and eventually won the whole thing. While the Phillies didn't advance to the World Series at the expense of the Mets, there are parallels to this situation.

Hopefully the Rays will only need one game to close out the Red Sox and will beat the Phillies in the World Series so everyone is happy.

I'm not happy with the fact that Shane Victorino is not the NLCS MVP.
Now I'm waiting to see the vicious Rays eating Matsuzaka alive.

I can't complain with Hamels' selection. The ALCS MVP better be Longoria.

Let's just hope the Rays get it done tonight. They need to take advantage of the Dice K walks and then go deep - early.
