It all comes back to giving away Game 2.
I could think of a ton of things I'd rather be doing than watching this. I don't know why I continue to do so, but I can't bring myself to shut it off. Watching this team his is unpleasant.

The smirks on the Phillies fans face during Game 1 made me so mad. I thought "Congratulations, you were able to use your economic advantage to usurp two of the bet pitchers in the game away from the teams who developed them. Props!"
I loathe the economics of baseball.
What might be the most frustrating thing of all, is the fact the Phils offense, minus a few innings in Game 1, were very beatable.
