After a season filled with ups and downs, the PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES have 3peated as National League East Champions for only the second time in franchise history. What an incredible feeling as a lifelong Phillies Phan. The greatest moment of tonight's game was the ceremonial way that Charlie Manuel brought in Brad Lidge to get the final out of the game. As I am writing this, I still have the chills. But it is not over yet, we still have to get a few more wins to clinch home field during the playoffs. We are only one game back of LA for the best record in the National League.
Thank you to the Philadelphia Phillies for giving this Phan memories that he will never forget and thank you for reading.
There are still more memories to be made. Let's hope the Phillies get after this Sunday's regular season finale, that the Phightin' Phillies get 11 more wins!!!
LET'S GO PHILS!!!!

For weeks now, we have been hearing from Charlie Manuel that Brad Lidge was our closer. Then articles popped all over the net, that Manuel might turn to Myers if Lidge can't get his act together. Well, it looks like today might have been Lidge's last day as closer for the Phillies. In the 9th with the game on the line, Lidge was pulled for Ryan Madson to close out the game. I like others was starting to think Lidge had turned the corner until this past weekend. Time will tell if this was Lidge's last day as the closer, but we are blessed to have some many great pitchers on the ballclub to pick up the slack. I love Brad Lidge and will be forever greatful for his performance during the 2008 World Championship season, but I want to repeat as champs and until he gets his stuff back, we need to look else where to win games.
