2010 Chachi Prototype #CL2 Cliff Lee

Other Game 3 thoughts . . .

Jenna's favorite sign: We've grown accustomed to the various Cliff Lee signs appearing throughout Citizens Bank Park over the past few months - UnbeLEEvable, We BeLEEve, etc. But Jenna spotted the most creative sign to date on TV last night - City of Brother Lee Love. We approve.

Déjà vu: The performance of Dodgers' starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda mirrored that of Jamie Moyer in NLCS Game 3 last year. Both pitchers lasted just an inning and a third, allowing six runs on six hits. Fortunately, no one threw at Shane Victorino's head last night. It was nice to see Jamie in the dugout last night. He had spent much of the NLDS in the hospital battling a blood infection stemming from his surgery for torn tendons in his groin. (Chances are you've had a better October than Jamie.)

But Cliff Lee won't cover his head with a towel: Last night's shutout of the Dodgers was the Phillies first Postseason shutout since Curt Schilling blanked the Toronto Blue Jays in Game 5 of the 1993 World Series.

Vote!: The 1974 Topps design is currently leading the 1983 Topps design in the 2010 Chachi set design poll. Only 18 short days to go . . .
