Phillies 2008 World Series
2008 World Series: Philadelphia Phillies vs. Tampa Bay Rays
Look back at the 2008 World Series between the Phillies and Rays, which saw Philadelphia's 25-year title drought end.
Game 5 (Part II): Oct. 29
Phil Sheridan: After 25 years of drought and two days of too much rain, Philadelphia has its championship.
Sam Donnellon: Joe Blanton, the trade-deadline deal we all yawned at, is one Phillies win away from a World Series championship. And a huge reason for that is Joe Blanton.
Phil Sheridan: The Phillies got so sick of hearing about their futility with runners in scoring position, they changed the definition of "scoring position."
Rich Hofmann: Major surgery is not the answer. Extensive batting order gymnastics would be a mistake. A tweak would be appropriate, nothing more.
Bob Ford: The Phillies had Cole Hamels on the mound and Scott Kazmir on the ropes for much of the game but were never able to properly gaff their opponent.
