The Mockingbird

The Phillies can’t stand this stupid division, either

with 2 comments

The Phillies have won the World Series only once in their long history. (That year was 1980 and their opponent was KC.) Excluding that world series victory, they have made it to the world series four other times:

  • In 1993, the Phillies lost to the Blue Jays in the World Series.
  • In 1983, the Phillies lost to the Orioles in the World Series.
  • In 1950, the Phillies lost to the Yankees in the World Series.
  • In 1915, the Phillies lost to the Red Sox in the World Series.

It seems as though the AL East has Philly’s number – the baseball gods proclaim that Tampa will win.

  1. It’s one thing to lose to the Blue Jays, Yankees, and Red Sox. But the Orioles? The Baltimore Orioles? That’s shameful.

  2. I think it’s a Woody Guthrie song about the “last man” – you know when things are going bad and you can always look around and say “at least I don’t have it as bad as that guy”. Well, there’s some poor bastard out there who can’t even take solace in that.

    Anyway, I find it kind of depressing that without the Rays, the Orioles are the last team. (KC isn’t even trying). And I hear they’re going to be totally awesome in April next year.
