By now, you’ve heard all the whining about how this World Series is the Clash of the Midgets. Or how it is a World Series between JV teams.
Yes, both teams have known futility
The Phillies were the first team in the majors to suffer 10,000 defeats.
Tampa Bay has never had a winning season until this year.
So, I agree, historically, both teams are bad.
But, we’re not talking history here. We’re talking today.
Once the Cubs (sob) and the Angels were knocked out, there was no clearly better team left in the running.
