Three weeks ago I witnessed the Chicago Blackhawks’ biggest comeback victory in team history.
The Hawks rallied from five goals down to beat the Calgary Flames 6-5 in OT.
By NHL standards, a five-goal comeback is a rare feat, the same holding true for a 3-1 series deficit in baseball.
What I’m saying is, there’s not going to be a dramatic comeback by the Phillies.
At least not needing three-straight wins, two of which will have to come on the road at Yankee Stadium.
Sorry Philly fan, it ain’t happen’. Not with Brad Lidge closing, Cole Hamels’ pitching and the big-three collectively hitting worse than Nick Swisher.
The Yankees are too deep, A-Rod too great and the NY pitching staff too good for the Bombers to let this thing slip away.
Unless Cliff Lee is equally effective on zero days rest as he is on four, the Phillies are finished…defeated, dethroned.
It’s a rather rude greeting, but welcome back to old-times again baseball fans. Welcome back to baseball reality…the World Series is over: Yankees win, Yankees win, thaaa Yankees win. Stinks, I know.
