Seeing Raul Ibanez in an NLCS champions t-shirt smiling amongst his new teammates almost brought me to tears. I cannot express how happy I am for a guy who worked every day for us for what turned out to be a horrible year (and indeed 4 years prior), was not happy about leaving, and wound up in such a good place for his skillset. This victory must surely be very sweet for him.
Congratulations to the Philadelphia Phillies for taking the NLCS for the second year in a row.
Now go whup New York’s ass.
