THEY DID IT!!! THOSE SONSOFABITCHES DID IT!!! THE PHILLIES ARE GOING BACK TO THE PLAYOFFS!!!
150 years. 16th postseason appearance ever. 1st ever playoff berth done via walkoff. And for the second consecutive year the Philadelphia Phillies are going back to the playoffs. Incredible. After the greatest run in franchise history from 2007-2011, they went over a full decade without getting back to the postseason. Now it's becoming the norm once again, thank GOD. And unlike last year, Red October ain't being played with house money. It's time to win the whole fucking thing. 150 years. 16th postseason appearance ever.
Props to Aaron Nola for finding his Cy Young shit at the right time after a tumultuous season. 6 2/3 innings, 4 hits, 1 run, 8K, 0 BB. His stuff was SLINGING.
Only 1 real mistake to the pesky Bryan Reynolds but whatever. We witnessed the Aaron Nola of old, which is convenient as the Phillies are going to need him lights out if they want to win anything this postseason. Also, if he's able to recreate these last two starts throughout the playoffs it's probably the only way he'll salvage his FA season and get PAID by someone next year.
S/o to Bryce for knocking one in and obvously Rohas with his first every walkie, but especially to Brandon Marsh for ending a tough month with a dingy.
Also, Jeff Hoffman will be the most underrated story on the World Seies DVD season review. Book it.Are we Dancing On Our Own again? Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise. Red October is OFFICIALLY nigh. Let's Ring It all the way thru this time. Ring It hard.
PS - Playoff merch is stocked. Let's have a Red October.
