As my deep-seated contempt for the Yankees has no known limit, I was pulling for the Phillies in this one, which might have been their first problem since everything I root for falls apart these days (see: Mets, New York). Unfortunately, True Yankees™ like C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, and, yes, Alex Rodriguez, summoned all the grission they could find in their $200 million bones, and smote the Phillies and everyone else to get Back Where They Belong™. Philadelphia will just have to content itself with the fact that its fans are bigger douches than New York's. After all, not every team can be back-to-back world champtions.
Congratulations, Phillies: Back-To-Back Champtions!
