While some might argue that it would be better for the Phils to drop today's 4th game of the NLDS in St. Lois, so they can win it here at home in front of the CBP faithful, I am here to tell you the Phils will win tonight and end this nailbiter of a series. They've done everything possible to create interest and buzz in the first round of the playoffs, but this one is only going 4 games folks.
They've come from behind, blown a big lead, and hung on by their fingernails in the first three games. I recommend stocking up on the Xanax and Pepto for tonight's tilt as well. Oswalt looked great in his last start, but the Phils' bats, especially at the bottom of the line up could use a wakeup call.
The Texas Rangers have already taken one Cinderella out of the playoffs, dispatching the Rays, who dropped 3 straight after opening the series with a win. Now it's time for the Phils to end the Cardinals season and rest up for the NLCS.
It's great being in town right now, with the seas of red on the sidewalks, the bridges decked out and encouraging the home team and a giant jersey making its way around town. I made it down to the staggeringly difficult Game 2, but sadly I have a work commitment, so I will miss out on the action, but thank goodness for my HTC Droid Thunderbolt.
