The visitors…Boston Red Sox…45-32. The home team…Philadelphia Phillies…49-30.
Headlines in the Philadelphia papers today included…“The Boys Of October?”/”World Series Preview”/”Phils-Red Sox: Baseball’s Best”
The Philadelphia Daily News’ Ed Barkowitz even has a “Tale of the Tape” preview…who he feels has the advantage at each position going into the three-game set.
Anything that sweeps the Dodgers filing for bankruptcy, Wimbledon and Women’s World Cup Soccer all off the sports landscape in one pass works for me. I can attest to the fact the City of Brotherly Love is alive with excitement about these games…
…but while my position is in NO WAY reflected by what you’ll read here about Boston fans (courtesy of one Philly scribe)…I would be less than honest in not noting its existence since I know Beantown faithful visit this site.
You have to admit…peering out over the horizon of what we’ve seen so far this baseball season you have to figure both teams have a really, really good shot at representing their respective leagues in the Fall Classic.
For now, we’ll hope the next three days…in Philadelphia…in late June…will be classic.
(and in case you were wondering…the Philly Phanatic is back in action after this unfortunate incident a few days back…if he’s ready…Philly’s ready!)
