Phillies March Madness Round 2

As you all may know, I started an NCAA-like bracket system to determine the greatest Phillie of all time.

After round one, only 3 upsets were made as #9 Pedro Feliz up-ended #8 Brett Myers and #10 Larry Bowa beat #7 Greg Luzinski in close battles while #11 Scott Rolen easily beat #6 Dick Allen. The 2008 bracket is becoming more and more heated in the second round as some of the featured match ups are #5 Brad Lidge vs #4 Jimmy Rollins and #6 Pat Burrell vs #3 Cole Hamels.

In other brackets, some interesting matchups include #5 Mitch Williams vs #4 John Kruk and #7 Pete Incaviglia vs #2 Curt Schilling. There are a few other close matchups but in the end, they shouldn’t be any other upset oppurtunities until the Sweet Sixteen.

Here is this weeks matchups:
