Phillies (Phanatic!)

Surely, any reasonable person will want the Phillies to win the World Series.

A New Yorker, I think the Yankees have a great history, but doesn't the arrogance and swagger of the team of highly paid all-stars make you a bit pleased to see them get close but not win the world series title?

And the Angels, one pities them remembering when the "Singing Cowboy" Gene Autry founded the team, then stuck with Disney as owners, and now an owner who named them the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Yuck.

But if you want a positive, non-baseball reason to root for them, go no further than the best mascot in baseball, the Phillies Phanatic (pictured here).

Go Phils!!
