When they needed to most, the Tampa Bay Rays couldn't even touch Brad Lidge. But that's okay, because neither could any other team this year. Lidge completed the perfect season, going an unprecidented 48 for 48 in save opportunities in 2008, including the regular and post season. I would definitely say that's more impressive than racking up 62 saves in one regular season.
Congratulations to the 2008 World Series Champions, the Philadelphia Phillies. I have to say, that was probably the most exciting 3 innings of post season baseball I've seen in a long time. Give the Rays credit though for battling back each time, and even Ghostrunner's favourite boner-inducing player Rocco Baldelli got in the action. It was fitting that Eric Hinske that has the stain on his career of being the final out in the 2008 World Series.
So Matt Stairs gets his World Series Ring, Pat Gillick wins another title, and Philadelphia ends their 28 year long professional sports title drought. Sounds like everyone wins ... except for the Rays. Better luck next year I guess!
