Good Pitching Always Beats Bad Hitting - NLCS and ALCS Wrap Up

I know this report on the NLCS and ALCS is a little late but I am still in disbelief over how the Phillies let their best opportunity to win another championship slip through their hands. We always hear how in the playoffs good pitching beats good hitting, but in the NLCS you had inept hitting in the clutch. Each game the Phillies had their opportunities but more times than not the so called stars came up small in big moments. Prime suspects were Chases Utley, Ryan Howard, Shane Victorino, Jimmy Rollins, and Raul Ibanez. If I was Ruben Amaro, the general manager of the Phillies I would shake things up and trade the Teflon Don Chase Utley and resign Jayson Werth. This is the kind of move that will kill any complacency that may have seeped into that locker room since 2008. Some of you may think that this is a panic move, it is far from that. It is a move that will make that burning fire that use to permeate throughout that locker room return and bring back championship glory to the great city of Philadelphia.

Now news from the other league, Yankees lose in six and the dream match up of Cliff Lee vs. Roy Halladay will not happen. To quote Florida Evans from Good Times, 'Damn, Damn , Damn!!!'.

Live from the classroom, class is dismissed.
