Congratulations Phillies

It was a long season, and the Phillies came out on top. It was the first Series for the franchise since 1980, and only the second in their long history.

It was a well played Series, and while I had no team in this, I enjoyed thoroughly every game. It was well played ball.

The Hot Stove League kicks off today. Should be plenty of big names kicked about in the free agent pool, but the gem may be CC Sabathia.

No one significant is leaving the Rays, so they may be a force to be reckoned with for the next few years. Couple that with the good young pitchers they have to trade, and they may even get stronger next year. The Yankees and Sox need to reload.

Giants and Jets win

The Giants battled the Steelers finally picking up a 21-14 win. This was a challenge for the G-men against a premiere team. The Steelers managed to shut down the Giants running game, and the highlight was a late first quarter goal line stand, stopping the G-men who were inside the 1. The Giant D was rocking as they picked off Big Ben 4 times. They also sacked him 4 times.
On the other side of the ball, Manning was 19-32, 199 yds. with a TD and 0 int.

The Jets eeked out a 28-24 win over the Chiefs. Favre continued to throw crazy passes into double coverage, and was picked off 3 times. Bret was 28 for 40 with 290 yards and a pair of TDs, but this was against a team that was a huge underdog.

In baseball news, the Phils won in an unbelievable ninth inning to go up 2 games to 1. I'm hoping to see them win, though I really have no dog in this fight.
