Will somebody please beat the Colorado Rockies? I mean seriously. First of all, Major League Baseball should have totally rigged the pennant-series so that the matchups were NY-Boston and Chicago-Philly. Imagine 50 million people would be interested in those games, instead you have some of the worst ratings in history as two expansion teams in crazy time zones battle it out. Second, the Rockies are good, don’t get me wrong, we all saw that, but they’re more lucky. When you have rookies pitching and everyday a new guy steps up to win the game, there is obviously luck involved; there has to be when you win 20 out of 21. You have to give them credit for playing as a team, but here’s hoping a better team beats them in the World Series.
On to more celebratory news. I would like to announce this year’s winners of the Phillies Nation Fantasy Baseball League! As you know, there were six divisions this year (four more than last year), so we have winners of each division as well as an overall winner. Here they are:
