I just wanted to take a moment to send my well wishes to the founder of Phillies Nation, Brian, for his year abroad to obtain his Masters degree. Brian has so accurately articulted our feelings as Phillies fans over the past two seasons with statistical research and and heart (along with some knee jerk reaction, which is bred into all Philadelphia sports fans, isn’t it?). I wish him luck in his endevors over the next year and pledge to keep up the high standard he has set for this website in his absence.
Oh yeah and let’s not forget…good luck to the Phils as well! One game out in the Wild Card race with 12 games remaining. Win two out of three in the remaining four series and the Phils will finish with a record of 88-74, and according to Uncle Charlie 87-88 wins ought to win this wild card race. Let’s all enjoy this ride and hope for a trip to the post season! The bandwagon still has room left, lets all jump on and see where it takes us!
