National League Champions 2009

The Phillies successfully defended their National League title and will now return to the Fall Classic for the second straight year.

Time is in short supply tonight and celebrations have just begun, therefore I can just say this….

THANK YOU to Jeff Lung of RSBS – Why you ask, well in my last post Jeff was kind enough to visit my blog and pass comment,

his comment was this…


Er… unless this bullpen thing is fixed (it won’t be) y’all better score 10 runs a game to seal the deal (you won’t) otherwise the Dodgers are gonna find a way to win (they will). Does that make sense? (It does). I’m an awful human being? (yes.)



So you see, the Phillies did score 10 runs or more in games 3 and 5, there is a chance after seeing this series that the bullpen thing is fixed, and the Dodgers didn’t win, I leave you all to draw your own conclusions as to Jeff being right on the last 2 items.

I personally think that getting 0 right out of 5 isn’t that bad….

Back to the celebrations for me….

My commiserations to Dodger fans….
