This was the only non-skating news I got all weekend while I was at SA! Amazing run for the Phils. On to the Worlds Series.

Go Phillies
This team has had several heroes this fall, but the Phillies also play as a TEAM,
if one doesn't get a hit or home run, then another will. On to VICTORY!!!

Betcha Fox is rethinking all the money spent on TV and streaming rights. Two mid market teams.

Nah, some may consider the Phillies mid market, but I think there are tons of Phillies fans listening to each and every game. Only trouble is that the Fox commentators are so biased against the Phils, who won, and don't know their season/year info as well as our own local commentators, Tom McCarthy and John Kruk, who have been set aside...

The national commentators always seem to be biased against the National League team. I already heard one of them say that they expected the World Series to go four games to the Astros.

Of course, they said that about the Giants in 2012 against the Tigers and well, they were wrong :saint:

Every team's fans thinks the national commentators are biased against their team in favor of the Yankees/Dodgers/Red Sox. And probably their fans think there's bias against those teams, too.

Anyway, there where a bunch of fun potential matchups and storylines when the playoffs started, this is not one of them, see you all in 2023 ;)

This is definitely true. Yankees fans hate listening to national commentators too. I’m done for the year too. But I do hope the Phillies win. Anyone but the Astros!

Given that the Astros just swept the Yankees who aren't exactly chopped liver, I don't think its unreasonable to think the Astros will steamroll the Phillies. But the Phillies look like they've hit a magic run and they can surprise everyone.

Heh heh heh. I rarely watch baseball since DH is not a sports fan but I caught the end of the game. The Astros will always be cheaters in my mind so doubly nice.

Philly and Houston are NOT mid-market. Philly is the 4th largest media market and Houston is 8th.

Hopefully things will go better for the Phils on the return to Philly. I agree, the Stros will always be cheaters in my book, even though I like Dusty Baker.

This World Series was a "plague on both their houses" situation, but I have family in Houston so at least this result will make them happy.

On to the awards!
