Go Phillies!

Excellent article in the New York Times about the Phillies, going into the NLCS.

Here's the best quote:
The fact remains that they still have Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino, the switch-hitting speedsters who ignite their offense at the top of the lineup. They still have Chase Utley and [Ryan] Howard, the left-handed sluggers. They still have [Jayson] Werth, who has become increasingly dangerous, and now they also have Raul Ibanez, who was one of four Phillies to hit at least 30 home runs. Over all, the Phillies led the N.L. in runs, in homers, in slugging percentage, and perhaps in intimidation, too.
Game 1 begins 8:07 PM EDT on Thursday. Let's go Phils!
