The Phillies’ return to the Fall Classic was an unqualified success, as they edged the Rays in Game 1 behind ace Cole Hamels, who won his fourth start of the 2008 postseason. In the first, Chase Utley became the 34th player in World Series history to homer in his first at-bat.  Click the link if you want all the details.
Well that kills my prediction, I didn’t watch the whole game because I played tennis, but it showed me there’s a lot of baseball left even thought the SOX are not in the WS.  Good game by both teams. 
Very often the earlier games in the season are a bit ….well…. boring…. But the post season has been really exciting.  Granted it would have been more exciting with the SOX still in it but I’ll keep watching.
