Home-field advantage in the NLCS. Wild.

Level of confidence moving forward is inversely proportional to how many batters our relievers walk.

If we get Game 1 NLDS bullpen, optimism is high
If we get Game 4 NLDS bullpen, the tightrope act will not last.

Some longshot chatter that we might see Hoskins on the NLCS roster.
Could basically be in place of Cave, who will never play.

With Marsh/Rojas/Pache as the three-man rotation for two outfield spots, you could have Hoskins pinch-hit for one of them, and have the outfielder who didn't start come off the bench to replace Hoskins

Need Rhys to have his "Kirk Gibson" moment

The Phillies are favored in this series.
The Phillies should be favored in this series.

None of that means Michael Jack Sh--t.

The Diamondbacks have a great team, are playing with more confidence & less fear than either the Marlins or Braves, and have no idea they're supposed to lose this series. They're playing with house money and are a team with zero to lose.

Arizona could totally kick the Phillies' asses.

This will be a very tough series, and the Phillies will have to play their best baseball of the year to go to the World Series.

Agree with everything you said Chris

I think that this series is a coinflip - either Dbacks in 6 or Phils in 7

This Dbacks team has an 07 Rockies feel to it.
