Well, tonight is the night for the playoffs to begin. Hopefully, there will be a favorable turn for the Phillies as Roy Halladay faces off with Edison Volquez. I'd have to say that this matchup is advantage Philadelphia. However, I know that either lineup is capable of putting a bunch of runs on the board at any given time. You can give Philadelphia the upper hand here as well simply because I don't think that Cincinnati can match Philadelphia hit for hit. Every member of the Philadelphia lineup is hot right now, so if that trend continues, I do not see how they can be stopped. Of course, you have to remember my bias here, but I think that most people would agree with my evaluation. I do not know how the odds are running in Vegas, but I assume that they give the Phillies the upper hand. So, I hope that everyone watches tonight as October baseball begins and the quest for a new champion begins. I hope that the end result will be red, but we have a long way to go before we get to that point.
After a year of economics, I have learned about supply and demand; to be honest, that's about all I remember. That's the concept I'm applying to this blog; I am supplying the quality writing that you as the reader demand (or at least I hope I am living up to your standards). My name is Zak Schmoll; I am a Business Administration and Statistics double major at the University of Vermont. I have been a sports writer in Central Vermont with the Central Vermont Sports Network, The Bridge, as well as a regular contributor to "The Local Angle," by Jim Higgins in the Times Argus, but I have now taken my audience to the Internet. I hope you will come along with me on my random journey through my mind on the Perpetual Blogging Co.
