So Brad Lidge said it’s “World Series or Bust” for the Phils this year.
The truth is he’s right. Philly has transformed from a loser franchise into dominant team. And the way they reload every winter, and at the deadline, makes them the NL version of the hated Yankees.
Granted the Yankees are in a class of gluttony all their own but at this point it’s win the WS or the season is a failure for the Phils just like the yanks.
That’s a lot of pressure and teams have been known to crack under that weight before.
As far as the Mets are concerned we’re not winning squat this year so let Philly talk. I’m certainly not rooting for Philly to win the East but if they don’t, and we don’t, who’s gonna win… Atlanta?
I’d almost rather Philly keeps winning than the friggin Braves rise again.
