What's S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g me now?

NL East Champs

Can you believe it? The Phillies are the winners of the National League Eastern Division. Wow, was it exciting at our house yesterday. Even the kids and the dog were getting into the celebration as the Mets fell apart and the Phillies hammered the Nationals. The whole team played a role in this victory. Jimmy Rollins was unbelievable on the base paths with two stolen bases and his 20th triple of the season. Ryan Howard added another home run and three more RBIs to his league leading collection. Local talent, Jamie Moyer, pitched 5 1/3 innings of 1 run baseball. Carlos Ruiz took one for the team when he went to first after getting beaned. J.C. Romero pitched two solid innings in relief. I could go on. More than anything, the fans at the stadium were so energetic. It’s great to see meaningful baseball back in town.

Obviously, I’m excited. It will be interesting to see what happens in the first round of the playoffs. If things go right, the Phillies may be playing the Cubs (my second favorite team) for a chance to go to the World Series. We’ll have to wait and see!

Until the next post….
