The Phillies and the Padres are meeting tonight for Game One of the NLCS. Just a few months ago, no one would have predicted that these two teams would be the ones competing for the chance to represent the NL in the World Series. I’ll be cheering for the Padres because Yu Darvish is going to be on the mound for them but I also think the Phillies have got an amazing story and I’ll be happy for them if that story includes them going to the World Series.
The Padres have already launched a mental attack on their opponents:
Can the Phillies recover from the horrors of Padre rap? We’ll find out tonight! We’ll also find out if it will be the Yankees or the Guardians facing off against the Astros in the ALCS. It’s an exciting night for baseball!
