Congratulation to World Series champions - Philadelphia Philliess

Tonight the Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 4 - 3 to win the 2008 World Series 4 games to 1. Despite the fact that I predicted the Rays would win the series (mostly to bug Ben Keeler), this really is no surprise as you had an experienced team that has been contending for a few years and has a lineup full of MVP caliber players (Rollins, Howard, Utley, Lidge) facing a young team that hadn't been anywhere near contender status previously. Congrats as well to the Rays on a season much more successful than any of the "experts" expected.

As an Indians fan I'm glad to see Charlie Manuel vindicated for how he was tossed aside by GM Mark Shapiro. Charlie may not be the best public speaker (okay, okay he's is awful in that area), but he understands baseball players and knows how to get the best from them.

The Rays did have an unreal season. They have a bright future.

But Charlie and the Phils are the best team this season.
