How SWEET it is !!!!

The suspense is over. The Phils waited two days to beat the Rays 4-3 in an extended Game 5 for their first World Series title since 1980.

Since the trifecta of the Yankees(98-00) the baseball pundits have proclaimed the superiority of the American League over the National League.

2007Boston Red SoxColorado Rockies4-0
2006St. Louis CardinalsDetroit Tigers4-1
2005Chicago White SoxHouston Astros4-0
2004Boston Red SoxSt. Louis Cardinals4-0
2003Florida MarlinsNew York Yankees4-2
2002Anaheim AngelsSan Francisco Giants4-3
2001Arizona DiamondbacksNew York Yankees4-3

The screams of this bogus info grew much louder after the 04-05 sweeps. In 06 after the Cardinals beat the Tigers I even heard the pundits on the four letter network try to explain that the Yankees were truly the best team in baseball but they didn't play to expectations which is why the Detroit Tigers were the representatives of the American League.
What are they going to say this year that the BoSox were the superior team but playing down to the level of the competition allowed tampa Bay to get to the World Series ??

Sorry pundits the two best teams went to the World Series and the best team was left with the trophy.
