Brad Lidge, Phillies fans will be forever grateful

The moment he dropped to the ground and my dad screamed “We did it! We did it!” like a jovial child on Christmas morning will never leave me for the rest of my life.

World Series Game 5: Cliff Lee, Utley keep Phillies alive vs.Yankees

If only Chase Utley managed to hit that three-run homer Sunday night in the bottom of the fifth, the Phillies may be on their way to New York right now looking to wrap up a title. Instead, Utley's first inning blast of A.J. Burnett gave the Phillies a much needed lift in Game 5 of the 2009 World Series. The home run erased a 1-0 defecit and the Phils hung on for an 8-6 victory. By doing so, the Phillies are taking the series back to New York Wednesday for Game 6.

World Series Game 4 ends in Yankees win, heartache for Phillies and fans

I can't begin to describe the emptiness I am feeling right now as a Phillies fan. This was our game. Pedro Feliz homered to tie it in the eighth.

Cliff Lee, Utley spearhead Phillies win over Yankees in Game One of the World Series

No matter what happens from this point on, I think it's safe to say that Ruben Amaro made the right move in acquiring Cliff Lee over Roy Halladay three months ago. With his masterful performance Wednesday night against the favored New York Yankees in Game One of the 2009 World Series, Lee now owns a career postseason ERA of 0.54- one of the the lowest ERA's EVER for any pitcher in the postseason history of Major League Baseball.
