Phillies in the Hunt for Playoffs

Okay, deep breath. Now, get your undergarments out of a wad and appreciate the title is merely in jest...sort of. If the season were to end today, the Phillies would have a Wild Card spot reserved for them. Sitting on a record of 18-14, they currently have the 4th best winning percentage in the National League. 32 games is only 20% of the season, so I'm going to pump the breaks on the enthusiasm for now. However, if we get to 21% of the season completed and the Phillies are still in the hunt for October, then it's game on!
Serioulsy though, we know the law of averages are going to catch up with the Phils at some point. I literally just posted about that on Saturday. Enjoy the winning while it lasts...possibly the whole way to the playoffs (wink, wink).

*I absolutely love Andres "Whitey" Blanco. He is baseball, true team player, high energy, fun to watch. Utility All-Star! Since joining the Phillies he's hit .293/.861 in 154 games while manning 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and SS.

*Tommy Joseph keeps bettering his numbers, practically begging for a call-up. He's now upped his AVG/OPS to .392/1.126 in Lehigh Valley.

The record could be looking very good when it is May 26. Phillies opponents 3 games each:
7-23 Braves
13-19 Reds (who swept the Phillies early in year)
16-14 Marlins (Phils just won 2 of 3 from them)
7-23 Braves
14-16 Tigers

After that: 24-6 Cubs & 19-12 Nats (Whom the Phils are 4-2 against)

A winning record at end of the month is not out of the question. With a team struggling to score runs it will be a challenge

Just the other day the law of averagas had the Phillies going down... what about the same law saying the the bats can't be that silent for that long

Actually the law of averages state that Klentak may not wait much longer to call up players who are hitting (Joseph, Williams, etc)

I live in Vegas, when I went to the sports book to cash my Villanova ticket, I saw that they were 500-1 to win the World Series so I put $50 on them. they started winning the line dropped to 300-1 , I put another $20 on them. I also put $20 @ 150-1 to win the pennant. It was all found money since Nova won me $850. I hope this run continues.
