Followers of this blog know that my predictions this season regarding the Phillies have, well, been wrong. And for that I am happy.
So now it's time for my prediction on the first-round playoff series against the Brewers.
I believe manager Charlie Manuel this time when he says they will get past the first round. Last year, the team was just happy to get in; this year they want to win.
The Phillies are the better team. The Brewers pitching, save for ace CC Sabathia, is in shambles. The Phillies have a better bullpen.
In this case, I like the Phillies to win the best-of-five series in 4 games. Let's hope this is one prediction I don't get wrong.
