The Phillies did what many "experts" well, expected Thursday by taking two out of three from the Mets. The Phillies showed great character and poise by rebounding from a dismal series opener in which one of their four aces, Cole Hamels threw a dud.Their offense was pretty offensive (not a good thing here) as well as they were shellacked seven to one.

Game two saw Joe "Krispy Kreme" Blanton cough up a seven run lead, only to watch the offense bail him out in a 10-7 victory.

Game three looked like a mismatch on paper with Roy Halladay opposing John Niese. Halladay's numbers were outstanding last season against the NL East, but I will address that later. The Phillies dominated the rubber-match of the series in every facet of the game by winning 11-0.

Here are the top five things we learned from the opener between the Phillies and the Mets.
