For me this has been some time in coming. They nearly met in ’64, and in the Spring of ’65 I clearly remember picking up a baseball mag with the prediction that the Yanks and Phils would meet in the WS that year. It didn’t happen, of course; but what was really weird was that both teams made the post season in 1976, 1977, 1978, 1980 and 1981—5 times in 6 years—but they never met in the Series: the Yanks got there in every one of those years but one (1980) which was the one year the Phillies got there. In fact, the only time the NL East met the AL East in the WS during those 6 years was in 1979—the year that both the Yanks and Phils missed.
So like I said, this match-up was some time in coming. And now that it’s finally here I hope to enjoy it.
Anyone voting for Philadelphia deserves a life-time WW ban. That is all.
@ Tresh Fan:Excellent point about the close calls, 5 times in 6 years, etc. It’s funny they never did meet – considering that there were less rounds of playoffs then and less wins required in the ALCS back in the day. Man, those Phils teams back then missed their chances!
