Even though I was rooting for the Tampa Bay (gotta support the underdog!), I figured the Philadelphia Phillies were deserved of my humble team schwag blogpost after winning the World Series last night. Cole Hamels, who actually didn’t pitch last night at all, but pitched the first 5.5 innings of the crazy suspended game two days prior, won the World Series MVP. He was stellar throughout the playoffs, winning 4 games, and was poised to win a record fifth before the Devil Rays tied the score in the top of the seventh.
I digress. Hamels got the job done every time he hit the mound, and hopefully some of the faithful Phillies fans busted out their Cole Hamels promotional jerseys from the July 25th giveaway at Citizens Bank Park. Life is good right now for baseball fans in our nation’s former capital.
