Phils Still Phightin!
Though I don’t follow them all that closely (more and NFL than MLB man) I have to hand it to the Phightin Phils. Despite a slew of injuries (including one to all-star and possible MVP candidate Chase Utley), an atrocious bullpen and perhaps not as much talent as the Mets the Phils are back in the thick of things after a four game sweep of those dreaded subway dwellers from Gotham.
And they did it with style. Ryan, Chase, Jimmy and friends came up with clutch hitting, smart base running, good starting pitching and just plain heart to vault themselves right back into the NL East pennant race. If that weren’t enough they won the last game by taking it to Billy big mouth Wagner.
It’s been a long time since Philly was this psyched about a team other than the Eagles this close to September.
Stay tuned folks cause it ain’t over till it’s over.
