Hamels in control, Lidge gave us some thrills but nailed it down, Phils up 1-0 in NLDS.
Onto Game 2, but they have to face CC Sabathia. Ugh. Almost as many experts dismissing the Phils chances in this game as there were in 1993 when they faced Greg Maddux in the NLCS. Charlie Manuel explains why he has Vic hitting 2nd tonight:
Left-handers that throw hard, especially when Victorino makes the pitcher bring the ball down, he can have strong games at times.

Elsewhere, it's Biden vs Palin in the VP debate. Do you mind if I call you Joe?
