The Angels' triumph in Philly last night was:
1. Just another June victory on the way to the AL West title.
2. A major handling of a big league contender.
I pick No. 2.
For a month now I've been picking the Phillies to win it all. That realization came during a rout of Houston on a Fox TV Saturday game. Between Victorino and Howard, the Fightin ones showed raw hustle and power. This team simply wants it. As opposed to their only serious divisional opposition, the Mets.
Then game Friday. The Halos treated PA like purely average. Best, Santana regained his grip on his Cy Young pitch.
So right now: Philly over L.A. in the World Series.
