The Phillies wrapped up their 2009 World Series berth this past Wednesday and still have until this coming Wednesday to prepare for their opponent. Who will that opponent be? Well, that's still up in the air. But today we ask you the question- Which team do you want the Phillies to face in the World Series?
Option 1- New York Yankees
A storybook history of 27 titles, billions of dollars spent, droves of Hall-of-Famers, and a current cast of all-stars with the most prolific offense in the game today. To be the best, you have to beat the best. Winning the World Series pitted against the Yanks would be ultra-sweet. Jeter, A-Rod, Mo Rivera, Posada, Damon, CC, Pettitte, Teix...would love knocking them down a few notches.
Option 2- Los Angeles Angels
First hailing from California, then Anaheim, then Los Angeles of Anaheim, now finally after much legal drama just LA. This team doesn't get a lot of respect but the fact remains that they dominate the American League West. Local boy Mike Scioscia at the helm, ex-Phillie Bobby Abreu shags flies in RF, and the always amusing Vlad Guerrero at DH.
Option 3- Bad News Bears
They have that girl pitcher who won an Oscar, the man-child that played a creepy Rorschach in Watchmen, a drunk coach, and a bunch of foul-mouthed youngsters. Don't underestimate them.
