However as the Phillies look to go on to their second straight World Series (wow that really hurt to type) I will be rooting for them come game time.
The reason I can put aside the hatred is because one of my favorite players of all time happens to be pitching for them, Pedro Martinez.
Even though Pedro's time as a met wasn’t exactly great, he tried his best. The Man genuinely cared about the team and about the fans. That is why I will always have a deep respect for Pedro Martinez.
Don’t get me wrong I do respect the Phillies, lets face it they play hard and never quit. They play the game the right way and I cant deny that they have a great team on the field and in the front office. (That hurt too)
Its just that my dislike for them totally outweighs those feelings, I wont lie I was very upset when they won last night.
Today I hope they can get the win for Pedro in what might be one of his last big moments in the game he loves so much.
Although I will say this, when it comes to baseball, the teams I root for have a knack for losing. After all I am a Mets fan. If this happened to be the one time in a few years that doesn’t happen it would be a bit ironic.
