0-1 to the Cubs with 2 outs in the 9th. A hit, a WP, and a few walks later, they win 4-1. Seemed all too familiar.

Maybe the networks will talk about how they are winning by luck and late inning rallies.

No, they will say that the Phillies are going to win the NL again...that is just the type of thing that grinds my gears.

The whole getting lucky part can't be why they are doing well.:rolleyes:

I really can not stand the Phillies or their fans...okay especially their fans. I hope Atlanta shuts them all up in that division.

Should be, since that's what it is. Coming from behind has never shown to be a sustainable way to win ballgames.

Today was way more a factor of Marmol blowing up than the Phillies fighting back hard to get into the game. If CoCo blew up like Marmol today those losses would have been even harder to swallow. The HRs CoCo gives up make me cringe, but walking in the go-ahead run, then another to lose the game is just horrible.

I'd still take Marmol over CoCo in a heartbeat, but this was just one of those erratic days that Marmol has from time to time.

I don't think the Phillies will even make the playoffs this year.. too inconsistent.. the team pretty much stinks on the road ..

I hope the Phillies play like absolute studs through this Thurdsday. I hope they don't lose. I mean, I really want them to pound the ball and pitch like they have 5 Sandy Koufax's starting. If you know what I mean.
