On Friday night, the Phillies went up 2-0 against the Cincinnati Reds, coming back from behind to win 7-4. The Fightin’ are on their way to Ohio and on their way to an NLDS series victory.

Think that is impressive? Well, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet, Phillies phans. This team is not only on the verge of competing for a World Series title, this just may well be the start of something truly special.

Um…can you say D-Y-N-A-S-T-Y?

Look, this isn’t just a knee-jerk reaction to a couple of victories over a Cincinnati team that, while talented and deserving of being here, seems nervous and every bit as inexperienced as can be.

No, there are many reasons to objectively envision the winning ways going well beyond this season. Sure, Jayson Werth is eligible to declare free agency following the World Series, and by all accounts, will probably not return.

But this team and its management has shown a willingness to do what it takes to keep on keepin’ on. The Roy Halladay trade and subsequent contract extension was pure brilliance, my friends.

Now, I know that many of you questioned Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr’s sanity when he traded Cliff Lee, but let’s face it, if they had kept Lee they would not have gone out and acquired Roy Oswalt and then there would be no H2O!

So let’s forgive Amaro and instead focus on why this team can potentially be great for years to come.

How do we love thee Phils? Let us count the ways…
