Dodgers vs Phillies NLCS Preview

By on October 9, 2008 in ,

The new, improved, Manny Ramirez-led Los Angeles Dodgers will face the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League division series. LA swept the NL-best Cubs out of the division series, and the Phillies dropped only one game to the Wild-Card winning Brewers in the first round. The Dodgers will be without outfielder Andruw Jones and closer Takashi Saito, who missed much of the season with an elbow injury.

Manny Ramirez and a healthy Rafael Furcal will give the Phillies pitching quite a challenge, both were red-hot during the first round of the playoffs. Joe Torre knows what it is like to win in the postseason, and will get the most out of his team.
