Can you believe it? The Phillies are in sole possession of first place in the National League East Division. With two games to go. This Phillies can clinch with two wins or one win and a Mets loss or two Mets losses.
I’ve been a Phillies fan since I moved to the Philadelphia area in 1980 and the Phillies won there last World Series. Since 1980 (besides 1983 and 1993) the Phillies haven’t given us much to cheer about. Well, I am hopeful that this is about to change.
The excitement in our area is unbelievable. I hear everyone talking about the Phils. In fact, more people are talking about the Phillies right now than the ever popular Philadelphia Eagles.
What makes this even better is that the Mets are imploding. They were seven games ahead of the Phillies just two or three weeks ago, and they are now a game behind the Fightin‘ Phillies.
Let’s see what happens today and tomorrow. Catch the Phever!
Until the next post…
