The Fightin' Phils do it again! I have a feeling this postseason goes better than last year for the Phils.

This also should put to rest all of the Mets fans who said that the Phils got lucky and only won the division because the Mets handed it to them.

GO PHILS!!!!

I hope Philly wins it all too against the TLAAOA (LA). I'm glad that a team with heart won the NL East.

But that's precisely what DID happen. The Mets' bullpen did the team in, and it cost them both the division title and a playoff spot. You're more than welcome to imagine that it was something else if you like.

I can't figure these Philly fans out. On one side of their mouth, they say the Mets are chokers(which is correct). But, on the other side of their mouth, they claim that their team earned the division title(incorrect, Mets choked).

Don't be too arrogant, Angels are tough to beat. As a diehard Angels fan, I am rooting for my Angels to beat the Phillies! Though I got to say (as a person born 60 years ago in Chester, PA), I love those cheesesteaks and hoagies, no one makes hoagies like they do in Philly. But, back to bb, go Angels!!!! I am now in PA, outside Pittsburg, but still follow the Angels.

Well, that's not altogether difficult! Look at the history of the team (which goes back to the very beginning of the National League). Then count up the number of times they've gone to the World Series. I don't doubt that Phillie fans have been dancing in the streets for the last couple of days.
