The Flyers were the right choice hands down.

People don't make movies about a single dominant performance by a dominant player (even if he was helped by the Phillies' defense). People right movies about awe-inspiring comebacks made by teams fighting against all odds. The extra parts of the story help make the Flyers case. It isn't just one series vs. one pitching outing.

Even thinking for a second that it should be Halladay is kinda out there.
The moment wasn't the entire run, it was one game.

I'm not saying the wrong decision was made, I like this better and I'm not even a real Phillies fan. I'm just surprised that the Phillies weren't pandered to like they are for everything else.
