Philadelphia Phillies: Once again, Philly is proven to be the city of underdogs
The Philadelphia Phillies are going to the 2022 World Series! Yes, you read that right, and no, you aren’t dreaming; the Philadelphia Phillies, who fired their manager in June and had a record of 21-29 after the first two months of the season, are going to the World Series!
The story of this year’s Phillies team will be played repeatedly for years to come, regardless of the outcome of this year’s fall classic. The Phillies were not supposed to be here for so many different reasons, and like the 2017 Eagles, they came into the Postseason with many writing them off before they even played a game.
Philly sports teams, though, seem to thrive when their backs are against the wall, and no one but the fans has any hope in them. Philadelphia is the city of underdogs, and the Phillies are hungry to cement themselves in that legacy.
The Philadelphia Phillies are proving, once again, that Philly is the city of underdogs.
Every great underdog team has to have its fair share of underdog players. For the 2017 season, it was Nick Foles after Carson Wentz went down with a season-ending injury. The Phillies, however, have a cast of players that were counted out at one point or another but have since rebounded and put it together to help make this World Series run possible.
