The Phillies are slowing losing ground in the division and the wild card races. They still have 32 games left in the season, so there is time to grab a playoff berth.
Regardless of the outcome, the Phillies have already had a successful season. They won their 70th game of the season Sunday. They didn’t win their 70th game last season until their fourth win this season. Haha. Seriously, when I look at a comp for this season, I don’t look back at 2008. Nor 2007. I look back to 2001 thru 2006, when the Phillies were finishing second and third in the division following a string of seven seasons where they had losing records and finished more than 20 games back. After 65 wins in 2000, they won 86 in 2001. Prior to their 2007 division win, they won 85 games in 2006.
Just an observation. This is the Phuture Phillies Open Discussion for baseball topics.
