Cole Hamels pitched a masterful game Sunday as the Philadelphia Phillies swept the Cincinnati Reds in three games. Hamels threw a complete game, striking out 9, while only giving up five hits. The Reds were shutout, 2-0, the second in the series; the first, of course, was Roy Halladay’s no-hitter in Game 1. The Phillies now advance to the NLCS for the third straight year and will face the winner of the San Francisco Giants and Atlanta Braves series.

I wish that we could have seen the Reds-Phillies series more competitive, but I think it’s a testament as well to how good the Phillies are. I’m not really sure that any of the Giants, Braves, Rays, Rangers and Yankees stand a chance in a 7 game series against the depth of this Phillies squad. It is going to be a very interesting post-season for Major League Baseball, and as a fan wouldn’t a Yankee-Phillie world series be the icing on the cake?
