Things I Forgot About the 2008 Phillies: Chris Coste Walk Off

31 May

The picture above is after Chris Coste hit a walk-off single to end a 13 inning marathon between the Phillies and Mets that put the Phillies ahead in the NL East. The box score is confusing, improbable, and mind-blowing; how did this group of Phillies end up winning the World Series in 2008? Jamie Moyer started against Pedro Martinez, Clay Condrey hit a double and scored a run, and the Phillies sent offensive juggernauts So Taguchi and Andy Tracy to the plate, and overcame a 7-0 deficit to win. Coste, on the 2008 World Series DVD, says that this was the moment the Phillies knew they could win the World Series. When you can overcome those odds and have Rudy Saenez get the win, I would say your team is destined to win, too.

I love Charlie Manuel and think he’s a great manager but for whatever reason, Chuck in a suit reading the newspaper with his name flashing on the screen made me laugh hysterically while trying to find things I may have forgotten about the 2008 season.

Things I Forgot About The 2008 Phillies: Jimmy Rollins Wore High Socks

Earlier this season, J-Rol wore his socks high. I had forgotten that he had also done this during the 2008 season. This screen grab was captured from the Phillies third game, and first win, of the 2008 season where a walk-off Jayson Werth walk won them the ball game.
