But that’s okay, I forgive you, though I can’t say the same for most
What started off as the team to beat, you ended up being on the side of defeat
Lee, Halladay and Hamels too, with that rotation, who thought you’d lose?
Ruben did a good job, bringing new blood to the fence
The best being of course, Hunter “Let’s Go Eat” Pence
More than once and going with the flow, the rookies Stutes and Worley stole the show
Hello Kitty backpacks, pink boas and red specs too, crazy stuff didn’t faze those two
We discovered Valdez can throw a pitch or two, got the Phils out of a jam, WOW who knew
Polanco started off strong and in demand, only to end up injured…damn
Back in May, I thought Raul stunk up the place, but boy did he do a complete about face
It seemed like forever for Utley to come back, but by the middle of June he was picking up the slack
Oh Howard, what can I say about you? You didn’t make it easy for the fans NOT to boo
Rollins with tons of swagger and personality to boot, can you please stay in Philly, even if its for less loot
Sad to see Madson go, but look what we got in return, a Papelbon from Boston, oooh that has to burn
The Flyin’ Hawaiian Shane as always was a delight, one to never go down (in San Fran) without a fight.
Mayberry Jr was a pleasant surprise, Martinez too, Bastardo continued to shine, almost on cue
Can’t forget Charlie who is the best in my eyes, thank god the Phillies have you instead of that LaRussa guy
And yes I know he won the whole thing, Charlie still has his 2008 World Series ring
So as I say thanks to the Phillies and close this out
My prediction: They will win the World Series next year, without a doubt!
Have a safe and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
