So long Curse of William Penn, congratulations to the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies.
Congrats are also in order for the Tampa Bay Rays. Going worst-to-second is still something to brag about, especially when your $43 million payroll this year was a fifth of what the Yankees paid to not even make the playoffs and $55 million less than your NL opponents.
Curse of the Bambino. Gone. Curse of the Black Sox. Gone. Curse of William Penn. Bye bye. Curse of the Billy Goat. Wait ’til next year?
