Venue: Citizens Bank Park South (aka Nationals Park)
Good Guys: Philadelphia Phillies 93-63 1st Place
Bad Guys: Washington Nationals 67-89 Last Place
Game 1: Roy Halladay vs. John Lannan
(20-10, 2.53, 1.07) (8-7, 4.58, 1.57)
Reason the Phils Win: Some dipshits actually think Adam Wainwright deserves the Cy Young. Wrong. Doc seals the deal tonight with win #21 while clinching the NL East division championship for the 4th straight year. Oh, Utley is still peeved about that broken wrist too. He intends to break some faces in the rightfield stands with batted balls. Hello 4-peat.
Reason the Gnats win: None.
Game 2: Roy Oswalt vs. Jason Marquis
(13-13, 2.80, 1.03) (2-9, 7.18, 1.75)
Reason the Phils Win: Roy Oswalt has had a winning record in all 9 of his seasons previous to this year. Why stop now? Also, Marquis is about as hittable as they get, more so than Tina to Ike.
Reason the Gnats Win: Again, none.
Game 3: Joe Blanton vs. Ross Detwiler
(8-6, 4.94, 1.42) (1-2, 2.52, 1.56)
Reason the Phils Win: GI Joe finally got his era below 5 and he wants to keep it that way.
Reason the Gnats Win: For the last time, none!
