Forgive me Yaz, for I am sinning.

I attended last night’s Phillies-Red Sox matchup and couldn’t help but feel more than a twinge of guilt rooting against the Sox. My dear friend and rabid Sox fan Teri would have none of it: “May Dan Shaughnessy write your obituary.”

I hope, still, for the predicted Sox/Phillies World Series. Either way, I’ll have a very happy October.

Phillies fans… expect the Phillies to win. They expect Cliff Lee to pitch complete-game shutouts. They expect to score four or five runs off Josh Beckett. Beckett might be the fourth starter if he were in Phillies pinstripes and Phillies fans know it.
