The Phillies are 74-74. They are 3.5 games out of the playoffs. They are the height of mediocrity. They could still win the World Series.
What a weird season. The Phillies will play in New York tonight against the Mets, and they will start the game one game behind the Brewers and Pirates, two and a half games back of the Dodgers, and three and a half back of the Cardinals. The remainder of the schedule is:
2 games in New York against the Mets, who are out of the race.
3 games against the Atlanta Braves in Philly. The Braves are 7.5 games clear in the division. They will play hard to beat the Phillies and eliminate them though. I think the Phillies need to go 4-1 in these next five.
3 games against the Nationals in Philly. The Phillies have won 5 of 6 against the Nats, who are in the playoffs, up five in the division, and shut down their number one starter.
3 games in Miami against the Marlins. The Phillies need to be streaking by here, and run over these guys.
3 games in Washin...
