Time does not cure all ills. Almost 27 years after their heartbreaking 1993 World Series loss to the Toronto Blue Jays, the Philadelphia Phillies were reminded of it Thursday evening.
With its season suspended, MLB has been replaying some of the greatest games in history on Twitter. That included Toronto’s stunning 8-6 win over Philadelphia in Game 6. It came on a series-ending walk-off homer from Joe Carter.
“Touch ’em all,” as the great Tim McCarver said during the broadcast.
As shining of a moment as this was for Canada and Toronto, it did not sit well in Philadelphia. All-Star closer Mitch Williams, who gave up the series-ending three-run blast, would not be the same again.
Now, more than a quarter-century later, the Phillies called out MLB in a hilarious manner for replaying their worst nightmare.
We’re good, atMLB. No need to replay this one again.— Philadelphia Phillies (@Phillies) April 10, 2020
The Blue Jays hilariously responded with a back-and-forth.

That’s all sorts of awesome right there. It’s the Twitter content we’re all here for during the current quarantine situation.
