Atlantic City Weekly Picks the Phillies!

I'm a little slow in posting this, but noticed at least one writer from the Atlantic City Weekly picked the Phillies to defeat the Yankees in the World Series.  Since visitors to Atlantic City are somewhat evenly divided between New Yorkers and Philadelphians, this seems like as good a measure as any to determine a legitimate favorite between these two strong teams.

Our unofficial prediction is that no team is going to beat the Phillies four times in a series.  Since ESPN only shows Yankees and Red Sox games during the regular season, a lot of people outside of the Delaware Valley have no idea just how talented, resilient, and mentally tough this team is.  They don't have as many big names as the Yankees, but a lot more people will know who they are this team next week.

Phillies go for historic World Series win vs. the Bronx Bombers
