The great news of course is the Phillies made it past the Brewers in the first round of the playoffs this year. They have maintained a great attitude, that included not being too happy at what they already accomplished and they wanted to further advance and accelerate themselves into the World Series this year.
Time will tell if they make it to the World Series, but if they do, this will be the team that at times struggled and other times cruised to victory this year. It would be a cinderella story that will be told for many years to come. That remains to be seen, but the Phillies have accomplished a great deal by making it this far, and that is great.
Stay tuned for my regular season Phillies review of the 2008 season podcast, here on this blog and via iTunes as well. I will be breaking down the series against the Dodgers as well, so if you have anything you would like to add please leave me a comment and I'll include it into the show!
