View Full Version : Phillies NOW = Mid-90's Braves

Remember when we would go into Atlanta like 9 times a year and be thrilled to win 1 game out of 3, but would usually end up swept?

That's what it feels like playing this Phillies team. You have to work so hard just to score enough runs to win a single game, let alone trying to win a whole series. It was a shame the Reds couldn't pull one out last night, but I have a feeling that after this series is over, the team is going to go on a tear.

Hopefully, most of you are around to see it considering that apparently all the players are idiots, the coach needs to be fired, and the GM sucks.

It does feel that way now, largely because of the starting rotation they've acquired. I have no idea if the Reds would have been able to keep Cliff Lee had they thrown a ton of top prospects at Texas (probably not) but it may have ultimately kept him out of Philadelphia. Either way, we're in a tough spot.
