    Well, I'm pretty excited that the Phillies just beat the Dodgers 3-2 in game 1 of the National league championship series thanks to a Chase Utley 2 run blast and a Pat Burrell dinger in the bottom of the 6th.

    Anyone else have any interest in either series? Probably not...

    I have a rooting interest in the Phillies since my cousin lives in Scranton and loves them.

    I'm so through with baseball! They definitely need to shorting the season. It takes too long to make it to the playoffs in baseball!! But I want the Phillies to win the whole thing.

    The ratio of regular season effort to playoff participation seems really frustrating in baseball.

    Think how much effort the Cubs went through this year, only to play 3 baseball games in the playoffs on their way to joining the Tigers as losers. Off season workouts, spring training, 162 nearly consecutive games of being constantly on the road, and a quick flameout at the end. And they were one of the best teams this year.

    I'm rooting for the Rays. [SARCASM]Nothing like having baseball tradition on your side[/SARCASM]. They've been a great story all season.

    It won't happen, but I wish they would shorten the baseball AND basketball season.

    "I pick the Phillies to win in 7 because I think the Phillies are better than people think, and I think most of the LA love has to do with everybody in the world wanting Manny to return to Boston in the World Series. Let's be honest, almost everybody in the country wants to see a Dodgers/Red Sox World Series. Next would be Phillies/Red Sox. Then it's Dodgers/Rays and then it's Phillies/Rays".

    That Manny is quite the character...

    I want Dodgers/Rays to prevail.

    Dodgers - Joe Torre
    Rays - I jumped on the bandwagon. I also hate the Red Sox.

    I want the Phillies and Rays. The Red Sox already got theirs and this is new to Tampa.

    Rays won last nite in St Pete. against New England(can't even say Bos$%@)...
    I'm hoping they win it all. It will show just how far the Tigers have fallen.

    Phillies rally for four runs late to beat L.A. and take a commanding 3-1 series lead.:party2:

    Devil Rays also win to go up 2-1 on the Sox.

    I feel the Dodgers get a cake walk every year. Giants = dodo
    Padres = dodo
    Zona = warm dodo

    You think Manny will take down the Phils??

    Next game is in Philly and their ace pitches...so I hope they can finish L.A. off.

    I have a big bet with my cuz that the Phillies are going to win it all and he thinks they suck. So last night he called me and sounded so dumb talking about the LA Dodgers are going to come back. LOL he's such a a**hole it's ridiculous!!!

    The Dodgers are capable of a come back, but I think it's unlikely.

    The Phillies have so many talented batters. They hit homers and have guys that steal bases too. They have starting pitching and a reliever that hasn't lost a game this entire season. Plus they've got the momentum and 2 of the remaining 3 possible games are in Philly.

    The Dodgers have...Manny.

    I'm thinking you are going to be taking your cousin's money.

    I definitely plan to watch the game tonight.

    Heading to the 6th inning. Phillies up 5-0.

    Go Phillies!

    12 more outs = World Series!
