I would be happy if all of our win games had less dramatics. Need a few moments for blood pressure to return to normal.

I am seriously sick of playing the Phillies despite our success vs. them.  I feel like we play them every other week

Goes without saying that this should have been a 4-game sweep.

Anyone else think that the fan who interfered with the utley homer had a cute girl?

@alphaq  It's something he should neither get credit for or blame if it went the other way. Pretty basic to not overuse your catcher. People play better when they're not worn out.

@jenkins They own the phils the last 2+ years, but....should a sub .500 team be expected to sweep anyone?

@MetsFan1962 We have always called them the heart attack kids

 @MetsFan1962  I'll take today's heart attack win over yesterday's heart attack loss...

Split would have been miserable. The phillies are terrible. They are terrible with no future. At least we have some pieces.

@lindro88  I live amongst Phillies fans.  Every game against them is a psycho-drama for me LOL!

If we're not going anywhere then lose every game and get a protected top 10 pick.  It's not even rational but I'll still hold out hope that 9 of 10 stretch is coming.  If not soon we'll have plenty of time to wait for next year.

That could have caused a riot in here yesterday.

Since we have nothing to do with the actual outcomes, why not just root for wins.

Huh?....If you're not a fan hoping they win every game I don't know why you're here.  This season is going to be completely over in the next week or two - enjoy any marginal playoff race while we're in it.

If this was the NBA and one player could change our whole future, I'd be all for losing.
