Although I don't really want the Phillies to win the World Series, I have to say that I'm happy for the Glue. He finally made the playoffs, and now he finally contributed in the playoffs, doubling and then scoring the go-ahead (and potentially Series winning) run for Philly.
We'll see if it holds up.
Negative. Rocco Baldelli steals the Glue's thunder with a solo dinger to tie the game again. So sad.
UPDATE TO THE UPDATE
Phils win - part of me was waiting for Lidge to become Bad Lidge and blow 3 straight saves to lose the Series, but Eric Hinske got in the way. What a pathetic at-bat to end the year for the Rays. Good for the Glue - he finally got his ring after so many close calls.
I guess it's something to lose in the playoffs to the team that won the World Series. That's 2 straight playoff appearances that this has happened to the Brewers. I think that qualifies as a trend.
