There isn't another sport out there that would do such a thing....

Phillies & Losing- It's an Organizational Thing

Last night, the Phillies were shutout for the 5th time in 18 games.  This isn't 2008, the players they're counting on are 5 years older now.  Many of them 5 years past their primes.  Their record of 14-17 is buoyed by their 9-3 mark against the Marlins and Mets.  Take those game out of the equation and they're 5-14 against everyone else.  This isn't a playoff...

Club pros get a taste of tour, and of reality
