The end is near
The Phils Are Done
I was pretty sure of this last night as I watched the bullpen implode by walking nearly everyone in a uniform including four cops, the ballgirls, a clubhouse attendant and the shooter girl from McFadden's.
After the Disaster in DC tonight, I am absolutely certian that my son will be watching his beloved Yankees in the playoff and my daughter's Phils will be swinging golf clubs in various souther locales. No one has gotten a clutch hit in 3 days, the pitching looks tired and David Dellucci is looking like a guy who has already packed his hotel room for his next stop.
I had remained hopeful despite the Phillies nearly 10,000 losses as a franchise. However, as the homers have stopped flying, the pitching has tired and the luck seems to have run out, I must finally admit that this is just another one of those teases the Phillies put us through.
It was fun for a while, but it's time to look to the Flyers for the next heartbreak opportunity.
