Congratulations to the Philadelphia Phillies, who crushed the LA Dodgers and now await another crack at the world title. Too bad for Joe Torre, and too bad it won’t be a Dodger-Yankee match–but I’m content with the excitement generated by last year’s champs trying to hang onto the title against…well, I certainly hope they’ll be playing against the New York Yankees, and by all appearances it shall be so.
Meanwhile, the votes are in! Two-thirds of you agreed with me and went for a Dodger-Yankee thrash, while one-third voted for Phillies v. Yankees, and nobody voted for the Angels. Of course, this is based on a pretty small electoral base–despite numerous hits to the post, only four people actually cast votes. Are polls worth putting up? Was the topic not intriguing enough? What do readers think?
