PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Phillies are getting ready to start another playoff season. Are fans just as excited for this post season as they’ve been in previous years?

The Phillies make it to the playoffs but for many fans fans, the reaction is NOT: I can’t believe the Phillies are in the playoffs!

“I knew they were gonna be in the playoffs, there’s no doubt about it with their pitching staff!” said one Phillies hopeful. “I personally feel that the expectations are a lot higher.”

Fans say that does not take away from their excitement:

“I’m very excited! Yes, I’m excited as I was last time.”

They just say they’re not surprised to see the Phillies do so well:

“I think it’s always exciting especially in a city like Philly that loves their sports teams so much so it’s great to see the Phillies doing so well.”

Kuznits: “Has (winning) lost its luster?”

“Being a big baseball fan, it never loses its luster. It’s so hard to make the playoffs — anything can happen so no, it’s a great accomplishment.”
