es around postseason performance in baseball the way I do in basketball and
Cheating in 2017 or not, they've built and kept together an incredible and exciting core of players. Hats off to them. Now I hope Philly drags them around the field for 4 games.
Except that they haven’t really kept a core together

If someone says Youppi or KC wolf , I will cut them
Also Wally and Mr Met are overrated

The Phanatic is so far ahead of the field it's a struggle to come up with who's next.

The Phoenix Suns Gorilla?
The original San Diego Chicken?
Gritty?
The Stanford Tree?
The Oregon Duck?
Uga?
Please note my intentional use of the word "Pro" so as to not offend @Old Fart Tree

The Chicken gets my vote as #1 for originality. Phanatic #2. 3 could be the Gorilla, could be Gritty. We might need a poll
USC Trojan
Mike the LSU Tiger
Aubie the Tiger

None of the above would be top 3 even if college was allowed.

I don't think anyone ranks Wally and Mr. Met highly. Although Mr (and Mrs) Met's accompaniment with Timmy Trumpet this year was pretty good

I watched every pitch of the 1980 NLCS between the Phillies and Astros. The deciding game was an all-time classic, as the Phillies won 8-7 in 10 innings.
The game was on MLB Network this week and I watched it for the first time.

Nolan Ryan blew it. 5-2 lead in the 8th inning and facing the bottom of the Phillies order. The single Bob Boone hit back at Ryan was tough but Ryan got a glove on it and could have made a play. Then the bunt single and the walk to Rose to force in a run. Left a mess for the bullpen to try and clean up, which they didn’t.

TBS crew is better

Big Hurt is a walking cliche machine and Pedro is much better that Papi

Call me old (I’m not), but it’s hard to summon the will to stay up for the entirety of a non Red Sox game that starts after 8.
