I have to admit, I'm fighting a little complacency now that we're in for the fourth straight year. I'm not nearly as excited this year.
It also seemed that way for the on-field celebration. Only Polanco was jumping up and down like a Mexican jumping bean. There's still work to be done and the team knows it. There's something to be said for that. I can remember watching the Yankees teams celebrate during their late 90s early 2000s run and I always thought they looked rather subdued and business like. It looked like entitlement from the outside. I hated it. Now that I'm a fan of a team celebrating in the same manner. I see that it wasn't entitlement, it was confidence. Good work fellas.
This was the hardest road to hoe since 2007, no question about it. Barring 5 straight losses, the team will be rewarded with homefield throughout the playoffs. The road to the World Series trophy comes through Philadelphia.
Pat Gillick is a Genius.
You called him 'old girl parts' and jinxed him Corey. All your fault all season long. The Phillies did not score a run for Hamels in 4 starts against the Mets. Keep it up Corey...
I'm still worried about this offense though. If they can't hit Pat f'n Misch, how the hell are they supposed to hit the Giants or Padres starters?
You should have asked him if he's a little anxious with the cold months approaching, you know... probably makes him apprehensive since he sits when he pees.

And I was bored so I looked up Madson at Baseball Reference. He has not given up an earned run since August 23 and prior to that no earned runs past July 29. Since that July day he has 31 IP, 0.58 ERA and .87 WHIP and 36 Ks. Then I got more bored. Since that same day the three-headed monster in our rotation has an ERA of 2.33 with a .97 WHIP. And Lidge. 2.14 ERA, .95 WHIP, 22 Ks in 21 innings. Just impressive.

The Phillies organization should stop being so concerned about the media and the hoopla about someone being tazered. When someone runs out on the field, the rules should be that all bets are off, and you are getting what's coming to you, no questioned asked. Period.
