This seems like a dream, only 6 weeks ago, the Phillies were still struggling for a playoff appearance, they were wondering if they could beat out the Mets for the top spot in the NL East, and the thoughts of the World Series were just pie in the sky thoughts.
All these pie in the sky thoughts have now come down to only one more win by the Phillies and they've made it to the ultimate series for them as players, a dream that many major league players who were and are great never even got to live. The Phillies have approached each series with the thought, we won't think ahead, we play each game as it comes and that has helped them deal with the series play in a great way. Now, they stand on the doorstep of record books, of memories that will last for years for the players and the fans who have waited for it.
The World Series 2008 - I don't want to think ahead either, but I really think our Phillies will be in it!!! And it's not a dream, it's not a dream......
