It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.

Indeed...the Phillies just didn't play well enough to win. The Yankees are a better team(and they should be with a payroll 90 mil more than the Phillies) but the Phillies definitely had a shot to win the whole thing but blew it several times. Their bullpen was too beat-up and Pedro looked like the Mets-era Pedro. There's always next year....well, maybe not for the Mets, but the Phillies will be fine.
