Okay, so here’s my theory … we’ll see how it plays out.
It was the Phillies’ loss to Tim Wakefield in the first inter-league meeting between the Phillies and Red Sox that started their terrible skid. (Those damn knuckle-ballers!).
On Sunday they beat Wakefield and, per my theory, have put the skid behind them.
Tonight, if my theory is correct, they will make mincemeat of the Yankees … and begin their World Series run.
