Are we alive? I can hear the faintest sound of a heart beating. Wait, I found a pulse! Although the wind has been knocked out of us, we're not giving up yet. The Phillies are 2 games back of the Wild Card with 2 games to go. Here's the scenarios: Dodgers or Diamondbacks have to lose next 2 and Phillies have to win next 2. Believe it or not I actually have more confidence that the Phillies will win the next two, more so than either LA or SD losing both games. All hope is not lost, but at the same time we're hanging on by a string...we're on life support.
Today's game could be fun win or lose, but I opt for the win. Scott Olsen of the Marlins will be on the mound and he popped off at the mouth before this series about how he wanted to be the one to crush the Phillies playoff chances. Thanks for the motivation there you dim-witted crotch goblin! He's bitter over his ejection from last Sunday when he beaned Nuni. The ejection was well deserved in my opinion, and now I'm hoping it leads to a beanball war! I love bench clearing brawls, and if the Phillies can't make the playoffs a brawl would ease my pain just a bit.
I'm preparing for the worst here as you probably guessed by the Red Cross symbol and the booze and drugs. My poll for today is what will you do to help erase the bad memories of yet another season of coming so close to the playoffs?
P.S. Dick Coons, I mean Richard Kuhns doesn't know anything about the depths of a Phillies fan's depression.
