Still a measly half game out of the Wild Card lead! Phillies are doing exactly what they need to do, which is win and worry about the other teams later (Padres, Reds, and Marlins). In fact, the team that worries me most is the surging Marlins which the Phils still have 10 games left with. They need to take care of business today first, and a sweep is by all means necessary. I expect the Phillies to be bug-zapping the gNATS today. And before they leave town, they should do the common courtesy of cleaning up the ashes of the fallen pests so that they can be reassembled for another clean sweep later in the season.
Curb Your Enthusiasm:
*Weak- Howard failed to hit a homerun last night to top Schmidt on the single season Phillies list. How dare he not go deep every game? Loss of power and pressure are the excuses he's sure to use.
*Uno- Hamels sucked last night. If he can't pitch a shutout every night, what good is he to this team? Seriously, giving up 1 run to the Nationals is one run too much.
*2hole- Victorino is hitting well in the 2hole but not well enough. C'mon Flyin' Hawaiian, you should be batting 1.000 sandwiched between J-Roll and Utley!
P.S. If you didn't pick up on the sarcasm...you're stupid!
