The Win-Eating Tree: Phillies 7, Dodgers 5
At this point, I have a soft bed to crawl into, the Times Sunday crossword puzzle to finish, and the knowledge that the Dodgers got farther in one year than they had in the twenty since 1988. That is worth something; the price for that progress has yet to be paid. Their season has been all undone now, dismantled by an extravagantly paid manager who had a tin ear in one game.
Why did Ned get Greg Maddux again?
