OH HAPPY DAY!!!! Phillies Advance To The World Series

Greg LeisterContributor IJuly 11, 2016

Here we are, back in the Fall Classic. The Philadelphia Phillies have done it. This is the first time since 1993. This team shows some same features of the 1993 team. They scrap their way a long. They get timely pitching, being led by an ace. This year it is of course Cole Hamels, 1993 was Curt Shillling. Power hitters like Howard, Burrell, Werth and Utley. Speed with Victorino, Rollins and Utley compared to the 1993 Power of Daulton, Hollins, Krukker, Speed with Dykstra, Duncan, Morandini, Stocker. Both team had a very effective closer.......Mitch "Wild Thing" Williams and Brad "Mr Consistent" Lidge. I believe the thing I am most looking forward to is not having to hear anymore about "Manny being Manny" and just how great he is. I think if Joe Buck and Tim McCarver had a chance they may like to date Manny as much as the praised him. This series goes to show that he is human and he can be handled. In the famous words of ESPN analyst John Buccigross........WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER..........OH HAPPY DAY IN PHILLY.



GO PHILLIES...........Keep the fever alive.


Good luck in the Fall Classic.....Bring home the hardware.
