Phillies completely owned the Dodgers last night, 11-0.

2-1 in the series now.

The Phillies were down 3-4 with two outs in the bottom of the 9th, and came back to win!



3-1 in the series. Time to finish 'em off.

I have no clue what you're talking about but I haven't seen you use that many smilies in a single post in a while. That's worrying.

The Phillies are one of the, say, four or five things in the world I care about.

I've never really understood the appeal of soccer, other than David Villa of course. I suppose it's because I'm 100% American.

Canada's made it once in a while (though they only have one team now after the Expos moved here).

It's true that is usually only represents American teams, and there are a lot of other professional baseball organizations around the world (most notably in Japan), but I still think the term "World Series" holds up in the face of criticism because of the obvious fact that the best players in the world almost always end up playing for the MLB (the U.S. and Canadian professional organization).

Even Japan, which has a very popular and very talented baseball system, will have their best players come to play here. There's much, much more money involved. I believe I read something in the neighborhood of 35-40% of players are born outside of the United States and Canada, and among the drafts (which is the newest young players and highlights what the future makeup will look like) the number is over 50%. So while it's played here, it is definitely an international competition.

That's a lot of drivel for what I'm sure was just a good ribbing, but I hope you enjoyed it nonetheless.

I'm ecstatic! World "Phucking" Champions in 2008, back to the playoffs in 2009. It's especially gratifying because I've been a fan of the team as long as I can remember, and during the vast majority of that time they were one of the worst teams in baseball.

Re: The chat-thread for lovers of other sports - Everyone welcome

Congrats to Caley 5-1 Richie Foran HT!

We're back on track after Monday nights loss. Lets just say our goalkeeper Fraser Forster has the worst kicking in all 4 divisions,useless! He cost us the game with a crap clearance vs Leeds!

Yesterday sections of the crowd booed him and I was one of them,I'm sick of him,he doesn't have a clue how to distribute,come for crosses To be a good goalkeeper you have to command your area,not just stop shots We should kick him back to Newcastle!!

Other than that our football was as fluid as ever,sadly Cody didn't make it off the bench yet again yesterday Chris Martin was our goalscorer after 32 minutes!

Danny Wilson the Swindon boss said before the game that we didn't have the guts to compete with his side,the stomach for a promotion fight,or cope with the high expectations at Carrow Road He's from my locality,I'm glad he's so far away right now,I'd really rib him if he were close enough right now. However,his son keeps an allotment I have to go past every week Danny,I suggest you read aloud the words from 'If' http://www.kipling.org.uk/poems_if.htm

I missed the Soccer AM thing Les!! Tell me more
