The year of the longshot.
Raucous Phillies, abide by the long taters.
Characters abound, going for two consecutive pennants.
A nice Citizens Bank Ballpark.

Harper, Schwarber and others ready to blast away.
So colorful, a true baseball franchise of yesteryear.
The loudest braggart fans in all of baseball.
Phillies, history, full of superstars and ready to win more titles.

The D’Backs swimming pool is quite a marvelous idea.
A perfect longshot, a reality of a rookie catalyst.
Beat my Cubbies six out of seven times in September.
Hit, run, steal and scoring runs.

A champion longshot called by yours truly.
An unprecedented sweep of the LA Dodgers.
Ready for the matchup of the ages.
Phillies v. D’Backs, on paper, a fantastic matchup.
