The Phillies came out to play this game to win tonight and they won it all with the victory tonight. It was a total team effort to win this game that started two days ago on a soggy Monday night and finishes with a sweet World Series victory.
Series MVP was Cole Hamels.. he did wonderfully for the Phillies and he was just interviewed on tv and the announcer just reminded Cole that it was good he filed for arbitration this year! Cole stands to cash in on the arbitration deal for next season and he won a 2010 Chevy Camaro for his MVP status.
All through the Phillies season though it was always changing who would come up big for the team on any particular night. They didn't steam roll over teams all year, they didn't win 100 + games this season but they are the World Champions as they put it all together when they had to, and when it counted. They played marvelously in the playoffs and knocked off their opponents like dominos.
The Phillies championship in 2008 will last for years in Philly, this is what this area needed at these tough economic times and times of record high fuel prices and inflation. The team provided a much needed relief for a lot of people that had the Phillies to fall back on during these tough times.
God bless the Phillies and good luck next year in 2009!
