Brad Lidge on Phillies Fans: “Right now, they’re on another level”

Phillies fans are a rabid bunch, but we’ve elevated to another level during this year’s playoffs. Even experts agree, including former Phillies closer and World Series Champion Brad Lidge.

Brad Lidge sat down with John Clark to talk about this Phillies postseason and the fan support the team has seen all year:

Don’t get me wrong, I’m already fired up, but hearing that from a franchise legend has got me absolutely juiced leading up to the NLDS. The Phillies have the best home-field advantage of any team in baseball, and it’s not particularly close.

If anyone would know what a Phillies playoff atmosphere should sound like, it’s Lidge. He closed out the ’08 World Series in front of a packed house. Even after a rain delay, the place was electric, and he both got to experience and be the cause of the ensuing pandemonium.

I was on the younger side for the last championship, but I think Lidge is right that Phillies fans have kicked it up a notch (maybe even two). Between the ovation for Trea Turner and the SEC-football-level crowd noise, we’ve ascended to new heights I’ve personally never seen before.

The clips of Bryson Stott’s grand slam against the Marlins should really be all you need to see to know no other fan base can hold our jock. Red October is ours for the taking.

Very real and legitimate journalist. I don't see a loss on the schedule.
