Well at least the Manny Ramirez Circus is over. For 10 days or so. No more hearing about where he could go next. No more hope for a Boston/LA series. By extension, no more Nomar/Derek Lowe back to Fenway in the WS stories.
Glad that's over.
If Boston comes back to win, the Phillies will be heavy favorites to win their second World Series ever. But that's not going to happen (see previous post).
A Tampa/Philadelphia series should be a real good one from a pure baseball perspective. Two good teams with a ton of power, young stars, and excellent pitching.
