This World Series run will be a bear!

If the Phillies win the World Series this year they'll have earned it.  No more playing out-manned Milwaukee, the choking Dodgers or the just-happy-to-be-there Rays. 

They had an easy projected path for a week or so, hoping to play the gagging Braves, the happy-to-be-there D'Backs and the ultra-chokers of all time, the look for the nearest exit Dead Sox. 

Now they'll actually have to play the hottest NL team in the wild card, a much tougher Milwaukee team and the hottest of 'em all -- those never-say-die former Devil Rays.

If it's anything like last night, it'll be a hell of a ride.
