OK, enough jibber jabber. The Phillies and Dodgers open the National League Championship Series tonight with Game 1 at Citizens Bank Park. The Los Angeles Times' T.J. Simers called Philly ...

Guess There's No Sweep

So how much faith do you have in Joe Blanton? Because he's all that stands between a trip to the National League Championship Series and CC Sabathia on full rest in Game 5 Tuesday.

Jamie Moyer has clinched the last two National League East championships for the Phillies. He could clinch the NLDS tonight at Miller Park. He keeps this up he could develop a reputation.
