Philadelphia Phillies: 5 Things We Learned from the Mets' Series

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.
