Last year the Phillies were in the thick of the Wild Card race as the season was coming to a close. The Phils were idle last night, and got some much needed rest, but that wasn't the only good thing to come out of the off day. With a 6 pack of games remaining this season history is repeating itself as the Phils are tied for the NL Wild Card with the San Diego Padres who lost last night. To make matters more interesting the Mets lost leaving the Phils a reachable 2 games out of the NL East.
I had this to say at the same point in the season last year- 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! *Those words still ring true. Let's go Phils...we want playoffs!!!
