Philadelphia Phillies – Could This Be Our Year ?

The Philadelphia Phillies have the day off today to prepare for their 3 game series at Dolphin Stadium in which they intend to fillet the Marlins.  The Phillies currently have a 3.5 game lead in the N.L. East with the nearest opponent being the Florida Marlins.  They are 18-13 with their road games for 2008 which puts them in 1st place in the National League and 2nd overall in the Majors for road wins.  The Phillies have accrued 344 runs in 2008 which places them at 5.29 earned runs per game which is 2nd only to the Chicago Cubs in the National League.  The Phils also have 93 homeruns this year which puts them in 2nd in the Majors only surpassed by the Florida Marlins who have slugged 94.  All of this explosive offense is backed up by an incredible bullpen with an improving and solid starting rotation.  So, after waiting 15 years from our last World Series appearance and 28 years since the last World Series win you ask yourself, is this the year?  Is this the year that makes all of those stagnant years worth waiting and watching the Phightins worth while?  Despite the outcome and criticisms I am still a Phillies Phan and will be until the day I am buried in my red and white pinstripes . . . . . . . Go Phightins !!

  1. Won’t be your year if the Marlins keep kickin’ the Phillies where the sun don’t shine. 🙂

  2. Ouch ! We’ll have to wait until Sept, but I’m sure the Mets may have their stuff together by then. Remember 2 out of 3 does not mean that we are swimming with the fishes . . . . .

  3. You might have to talk to the Cubs about that. The White Sox and Red Sox both won series this decade for the first time since before 1920. The Cubs are playin’ like they think it’s their turn.

  4. The Cubs have a least another 100 yrs to wait . . . Curses aren’t all that easy to break. Just ask the red Sox!
