Phillies reach the end & Now onto the Flyers

TY to over ---760,000 readers---of my Yahoo Sports, Interview and News articles since 2/1/11.

Phillies -

An offense that was not able to produce led to the Phillies first-round sweep.

Any analysis that believes in some type of deep insight about matchups, Ryan Howard, Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt, Charlie Manuel, etc. is really grasping at straws.

If you can't produce consistently at the plate in the playoffs your opponent would need to be even worse offensively for you to win. The Cardinals weren't.

The best team in baseball each season (meaning April through October, not April through September) wins the World Series. The Phillies were not the best team in baseball in 2011. At least four other teams (all of who have advanced to the League Championships) are better.

A long winter, followed by a different spring training are yet to come. 

Flyers -

Meanwhile, off in Flyerville... They beat the Bruins in Game 1 and face the Devils in Game 2.

The Flyers will fly under the radar until January.

Depending upon how well, or how poorly, the Eagles do won't matter. People are into pro and college football for the time being.

This team will grow and possibly surprise as the season moves forward.
