Hisses and Boos for Sports Illustrated

Dear Editor:

I just received the edition that should have covered the "Fightin' Phils" win in the World Series over destiny's darlings, the Tampa Bay Rays (whom you predicted would win the Series). I should have read an elegy about all things Phillies, how well they played, how much almost every player contributed, about Charlie Manuel, Jamie Moyer, Joe Blanton and the rest of the gang.

Instead, we got a thought piece (for the most part) from Tom Verducci about ways to change the World Series. Sure, the Series needs to be changed, but couldn't you have had someone else write that article after you published the huzzahs for the Phillies?

Your coverage wasn't worthy of the great achievement of this team. Perhaps if they played the game wearing skimpy bathing suits you would have done a better job.

I remain

a longtime subscriber who just can't make out the print of ESPN the Magazine.
