Not that I want to jump the gun, but I was given a recommendation by our own Julie Michael, and it’s fitting. Let’s go with Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale. Yes, celebrate. Celebrate because tonight may very well be the greatest night in Phillies franchise history. Here we are, everyone, at the climax of an incredible season. Time to do it. Time to win. Just win.

Go Phillies!

    Pena’s ball was hit well, but Longoria’s was just a routine grounder just out of J-Roll’s range. Not like he killed it or anything. Cole will be okay, we just need to create a few more runs for insurance. After all, when they bring Price in, we won’t get a hit off of him, because he’s unhittable, remember? Joe Buck said so.

    Good D to get out of the inning. As much as it hurts to admit it is the Phils year.

    Great at bat, even though I like Werth’s chances against Kazmir more than Utley’s.

     
  • Posts: 0 BrewTownPhilsPhan

    Some runs here and you’d think Kaz is done.
