At times like this you need a beer and some good music to calm the nerves and ease the tension. The Phillies only have 6 games left, and each game will probably be a heart stopper. So grab a six-pack of your favorite brew and pop in some tunes for your pre-game warm-up, because this is going to be one helluva end to the season!
Last night's game was testament to the reason the Phillies haven't already locked up this Wild Card. Burrell and Dellucci with some poor defense, guys not hitting with runners in scoring position, and the bullpen's inability to throw strikes. We've seen this before and were hoping it would stay away, but it has reared its ugly head once again. The Phils had the opportunity to pick up that all-important 1 game cushion, but alas we're on level ground with the Dodgers. We have the gNats for a 3 game set then finish the season in Miami. What is going to happen? My overly-broken heart tells me the Phils are going to find a way to squander this thing, but I'm not giving up. This team has fooled me over and over again this season, so go ahead and fool me one more time for good measure. The Philadelphia fanbase is rabid for some Phillies playoff baseball, and I think they might just deliver.
P.S. BloodStripes, check out Sixer, they're a rockin' punk band!
