Sorry Torre Phils in the World Series

For my friend Scott, a die-hard Mets fan, his worst nightmare is about to come true. The Phillies are already in the World Series, having easily dispatched the Dodgers for the second straight year in five games. Now, unless the Angels can pull off a miracle comeback, the Yankees will ascend to the World Series for the first time since 2003. If I were Scott, I'd move south for the winter right now.

I was personally rooting for a Yankees-Dodgers World Series, a reminder of some classic title bouts of decades ago, plus the drama of Joe Torre leading his new team in a tough fight against his old team after being rather unceremoniously dumped. But it was not meant to be. The better team won that LCS and the Phillies will be a tough opponent.
