Big Surprise: Phils Not Favored to Repeat

Jan 4, 2008, 6:04 PM EDT

With the Red Sox and Yankees topping the list, and considering just how difficult it is to repeat (the Yanks did it last when they won three in a row between ’98-’00), this news is not exactly shocking.  One particular item on this list did catch my eye though.

Philadelphia Phillies               13/1
New York Mets                13/1

We beat them out for the playoffs two years in a row, gleefully watching them collapse along the way both times, yet they still receive the same level of respect.  Whatever.  Next season should be another fun chapter in the rivalry.
