Worth Repeating

a3abc16230b8a2c0ef4194d718f6c53f-getty-91847829tl158_los_angeles_d.jpgThe Phillies are repeat NL Champions and are rolling toward a possible repeat as the World Champions.

They powered through the LA Dodgers for the second consecutive year in 5 games and look stronger this year then they did in 2008. That has to be a scary thought for whoever comes out of the ALCS (most likely the Yankees).

Ryan Howard did not continue his Post Season RBI streak, but he didn’t need to. When the Dodgers zigged, the Phillies zagged. LA pitched around the big man in the first inning putting two on base for Jayson Werth.

Just for kicks and grins, Jayson powdered a ball to deep Center field for a 2nd Home Run to make it a 4-1 game before the mop up crew came out and polished off the Dodgers for 2009.

The Flyin Hawaiian was a constant offensive force in the NLCS.

5675bbbc049c9796ebe40bfe94d79925-getty-.jpgChase Utley has reached base safely in 25 straight Post Season games. That ties another MLB record (Boog Powell). When you have that type of balance, it’s no wonder you are the defending World Champions.

Jayson Werth still has his eye on the prize, and it is that type of focus that brings World Series Champions. Can they repeat?

“Big games call for big times. We’ve got four more games to win.” – Jayson Werth
