Back on July 22nd, I wrote about how the Phillies were playing so poorly that I accused them of being pod people, replacing the actual Phillies with soul less replicants.
They were a mere 2 games over .500 and were in danger of hitting break even if they lost to St. Louis and Colorado.
And they were 7 games back of the Braves. They were dead in the water when I called them out.
What's their record since that 5-1 loss to St. Louis?
Granted one of those wins was aided by a horrible call in Florida the other night
But in just a little more than 2 weeks, the Phillies have nearly made up a week of games. And it can't all be attributed to the Roy Oswalt trade. They started this tear before his arrival.
I think the Phillies read my post and finally woke up and played as they are capable of doing.
And now I think they will take the division under their arm and run away with it.
I'll take the credit.
I can't think of any other reason for the turn around.
You are welcome.
I should get a playoff share.
