Full disclosure: I navigated Baseball Reference today to revisit the 1993 World Series box scores. I sense I wasn't alone. I wanted to study the similarities between last night’s collapse and Game 6, just to see if it invoked the same nausiating feeling. It did. I’m unsure why I did it, why I needed to torture myself in this sick and twisted way, but I did, and I'm uncertain what it accomplished. We could talk about the missed opportunities against CC, their sloppy fifth inning, the bad throws or any number of contributing factors, but if the Phils can’t pull off a miraculous reversal, this World Series will be remembered for Brad Lidge, the way the '93 Fall Classic boiled down to Wild Thing. Nevertheless, there are two significant differences. First: the still-shining existance of 2008, and that iconic photo of Lidge, falling to his knees, after striking out Eric Hinske. Joe Carter has nothing on that. (BTW, there are good photos of Cole Hamels that series, too.) And second, the Phillies are not quite dead ... although the buzzards are beginning to circle.
