It’s hard to remember the last time we were without the playoffs here in Philadelphia. But such are the hard truths surrounding a mediocre Phillies team that will miss the postseason for the first time since 2006.
Now, I don’t expect you to “root” for another team to win. However, there can be favorites for a number of different reasons. Maybe you’ll silently cheer on the Giants because you like watching Buster Posey behind the plate and at the dish.
The Reds have some intriguing players like Aroldis Chapman and Joey Votto, so seeing them make it to the World Series could be fun.
It’ll be difficult to show support for the Cardinals, Braves, or Nationals, but if you do I’m sure you’ll have your reasons.
So, who will you side with in the National League playoffs?
