It doesn’t seem that long ago when beat writers and reporters were using words like ‘must-win’ and ‘crucial’ when describing upcoming Phillies games.  Now while the crown is still up for grabs, the Phillies are on fire.  Their magic number to clinch the NL East is two and they are showing no signs of slowing down.

It was hard to even think the Phillies would have a magic number back in July when they were seven games back behind the Atlanta Braves in the division.  However, the Phillies have completed flipped those numbers going 45-15 since July 22 and have built a 6.5 game lead heading into the last week of the season.

The Phillies can come one game closer to clinching by knocking off the Mets in the second game of this three game series tonight.  They will be looking to Kyle Kendrick (10-9, 4.78) to get the job done.  Kendrick could be making his last start of the season, depending how Charlie Manuel sets up his rotation for a likely playoff berth.

Kendrick has been your typical 5th starter all year long.  Inconsistency has troubled the young right hander in his last couple of outings.  He only has three wins in his last seven starts going an average of 5+ innings and giving up a little over three runs a game.  The offense will once again be asked to pick up the slack.  Something they have had no problem doing over this current 11 game winning streak.

Shane Victorino is hitting .385 against the Mets in 13 games collecting 12 hits and three homeruns.  However, those stats won’t mean anything going into tonight.  The Phillies will be facing Mets’ rookie pitcher Dillon Gee (1-1. 1.80).  Gee is making just his fourth start of his career and faces probably his toughest opponent yet.

The Phillies have the best record in all of baseball and have won 20 of their last 23 games.  They are streaking to a fourth consecutive NL East title and looking to represent the National League in the World Series for a third straight year.

Today’s lineup: Victorino CF, Polanco 3B, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Werth RF, Ibanez LF, Ruiz C, Valdez SS, Kendrick P

Your gameday beer: Yards Love Stout
Victory LagerAnything from Yards is a friend of mine. They just make damn good beers. My favorite is Yards ESA, but this Love Stout is intriguing. Right now, it’s cask conditioned at Grey Lodge Pub in Northeast Philadelphia, another enticing factor. Since I’v never tried the Love Stout, I can’t say first hand how it looks or tastes. But by all accounts, it’s a very dark beer with a dark head that has a chocolate and coffee aroma. For you java lovers, this could be gold. If your in Philly, get down to the Grey Lodge and order a burger med-well with one of these and enjoy the game. -Pat Gallen

GO PHILLIES!

    Rooting for my man Kyle i believe he can do it. Im also liking Worley them two will compete for the fifth starter next year i believe. This off season the Phils will need to bring in a few relievers and maybe another potential starter.

    If the Phillies win tonight, they clinch a playoff spot. SF and SD cannot both win 94 games. Phillies will wait to celebrate.

    Mess would have to get a runner on base to take out the second baseman. Might not happen this weekend.

    You wonder how a major league franchise could have that little pride.
    Even though they dont grasp it I am embarrassed for them.

  21. biz

    September 25, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    That was a moonshot by Ryno. But ya know what? He might strike out at some point. We can’t have that. I’d rather have Casey Kotchman. Yeah, he only hits 8 HR a year, but he only K’s 75 times. It’s not how many runs you knock in, it’s all about hitting pop flies and ground outs.

    Pfffffft.

    The howard bashing is as bad as the Howard loving.
    He does what hes supposed to do.
    I am partial to middle defensive players. But to each his own.

    On pace to be a first ballot hall of famer.
    But not the best player on the team or even the MVP of the team.
    Thats ruiz

  33. Lefty

    September 25, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    Victorino sucks!!!!!! No excuse for grounding into a double play!!!!

    Kendrick allowed a hit tonight, he sucks!!

    Dane Sardhina should be playing instead of that stiff Ruiz!!

    Should have never traded Cliff Lee, he would have won 46 games and shored up the Eagles O-line.

  34. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    Werth is a good low ball hitter. He knows how to get the bat low and get the breaking ball.

    Shane should be in the conversation for Team MVP. I’m serious this time.

  43. Andrew from waldorf

    September 25, 2010 at 8:13 pm

    Of course he is.
    The level that he is under rated is pretty high.
    I got behind Ruiz this year and it seems to have rubbed off. Maybe next year we go with the shane bandwagon.
    Especially if he hit 1 all year which I thnk he could pull off.

  44. Lefty

    September 25, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    LOL- Sardinha had Scott Boras as his agent and turned down a signing bonus had to re-enter the draft and didn’t get one the next year.

  45. Andrew from waldorf

    September 25, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    To me the MVPS go like this. this year
    1. ruiz
    2. halladay
    3. victorino
    4. madson
    5.polanco

  48. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    September 25, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    NO VALDEZ ANDREW?

  49. Lefty

    September 25, 2010 at 8:21 pm

    If I couldn’t see the stats and just watched the games, I would guess that Ruiz has 50 more RBI than he does. That’s how clutch he’s been.
    But more importantly, his defense, cunning, and the respect he gets from three superior pitchers makes him team MVP.

    oh no, poor girl is caught picking her nose then eating it on tv

  51. Andrew from waldorf

    September 25, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    Valdez is a spare part. He is MVP of spare parts though.

    In a normal year Utley would be up there and rollins up there too.

    Lidge probably deseves consideration too this year.
    Weird year.

    Valdez would be my best newcomer/ replacement player- Great athlete with a cannon. A year or two under the tutelage of the old man, he’ll learn to hit too.

    I have only two MVP candidates, I just think their body of work for the entire season is far ahead of the others. Great contributions by just about everyone else this year, that’s how we survived the injuries.

    SUP NATION ! ——Just got home , Ryan put one in the CF ivy huh ?
    Heard it was a shot , did see Reyes get picked off , thats 2 in 2 games nice.
    Mets just scored here comes Charlie to get Kendrick. Since I missed most of the game I have a question , is this Dillon Gee kid good ? Looks like nothing since 1st inning.
    Durbin just gave up a bases clearing double as I type all charged to Kendrick , guess he pitched good before this inning.

  74. Lefty

    September 25, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    No Andrew, but I’ve seen the promos on HBO, but never watched, I’ll check it out.

  112. Kate

    September 25, 2010 at 9:06 pm

    If we go with Jeff’s appraisal of Ryno, the only difference between Jeff and Ryno is the fact that no one on the planet is dumb enough to overrate Jeff.

    Although, it is an interesting logistics question. Is a negative rating really possible? And in Jeff’s case, would a negative rating still be overrating? I think it’s entirely likely.

    No way howard is overrated he’s put this team on his back the last few years and carried thrm to they playoffs he’s been having an off year but you look at his numbers their still pretty darn great…

  114. Kate

    September 25, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    I think Jeff is just that insanely jealous of Ryan Howard.

    HE HAS CARRIED THIS TEAM BY HIMSELF MANY TIMES IN THE LAST FEW YEARS———–JEFF SAYS GIVE HIM VOTTO,STFU-OKKK

  119. Andrew from waldorf

    September 25, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    To be honest I dont want a 1b who is all about the glove. Like I dont want a C who hits 50 homers.
    Ill never forget someone asked Boog Powell how do you play a good defensive first base and he said swing the bat.

    Now you cant be terrible and hes not. Hes adequate for what he is.

  120. Andrew from waldorf

    September 25, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    Jeff makes me laugh. Like Archie Bunker on steroids.
    I dont think I could ever get mad about what people post on the net though. Thats just how I am people have opinions. I try to have fun with everyone.

  121. Lefty

    September 25, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    Adam Dunn is terrible, Ryan is not.

    Albert is better though.

  122. Lefty

    September 25, 2010 at 9:14 pm

    meant albert better defensively

  123. Andrew from waldorf

    September 25, 2010 at 9:14 pm

    Votto Dunn A Gonzalez
    all very good.

    Gonzalez on the Phillies is sick numbers.

  125. Andrew from waldorf

    Dunn is so bad that maybe hes not worth it. I am undecided on that.

    LET ME SEE , HOWARD HAS —

    A ROOKIE OF THE YEAR TROPHY
    AN MVP TROPHY
    A WORLD SERIES RING—-more to come this year
    TWO PENNANTS——-3rd coming this year
    3 DIVISION TITLES—-4th in a row coming this year
    Power numbers in the 1st 5 years of a career that puts him on a list with guys like BABE RUTH , WILLIE MAYS , GEHRIG
    Its a team effort but he has been the BIG COG in the middle of this machine and has carried this team at times.
    Man I wish I was such a piece of shit with all that hardware and accomplishmnts

  128. Andrew from waldorf

    September 25, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    Well it was a bad play LOL

    If we were 6 back Id be feeling differnt.

    I don’t see enough of Adrian, can he field the position adequately?

  131. biz

    September 25, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    How can the guy who has the record for consecutive post season games with an RBI be overrated? How can the quickest man to 100/150/200/250 HR be overrated? If anything, Howard is underrated. There are people out there who still think that Prince Fielder is a better 1B.

    I’m sure Jeff would prefer Casey Kotchman.

  132. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

  139. Lefty

    September 25, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    Can we all agree on one thing?

    Ryan Howard is the most polarizing player on the team.

    I’m in the Big Piece fan club.

    AG not an FA till 12- long way off.

  145. Andrew from waldorf

    September 25, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    I dont think any 1b is worth 25 million
    And I dont mean that like teachers are underpaid I mean in the scheme of MLB economics.
    20 million for cabrera Pujos AG and Howard.

    I am thinking the phils have a bigger budget than we know though and thats a good thing.

    I also wouldnt trade Howard for any 1b. Ill take him as my 1b on this team.

  146. miked63

    September 25, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Some people think a team can peak too early before the playoffs and its true cause i’ve seen it happen in all sports. The clinch will happen with plenty of time to rest a little.It may be good to end the win streak so we can refocus and reload for the playoffs. How can anyone complain about the last month ?

  147. Lefty

    September 25, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    Tiger Woods will not get any eagles this weekend. Not what you were looking for Jay? 🙂

  148. Andrew from waldorf

    September 25, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    Herndon and JC and durbin
    not in the circle of trust

    Hope the eagles win
    I am starting schaub vs Dallas instead of the felon though
    Ok I threw that in for Jeff

  149. Lefty

    September 25, 2010 at 9:30 pm

    Can’t complain at all. We need to lose a few. Become invincible in October!

  152. Lefty

    I’d rather lose to the Mets than to the Braves. Of course, I’d rather lose to the Nats before losing to a mediocre team (Mets) or the guys we’ve been pounding all month.

    Oh my. How awful. Who has the record for ground outs? How about pop outs? At least those aren’t counted as 2 outs like K’s are….

  164. Kate

    September 25, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    Meh. I’m not worried.

    I’ve been saying they’re not going to win out the rest of the year. Cole will shut them out tomorrow and the Mets are an irrelevant team. They don’t even matter. Better to drop a game to them than to the Braves.

    I really didn’t want to win out cause of the whole peaking thing and it was very unlikely anyway

  173. BravoMan

    September 25, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    Charlie Man-u-smell will probably throw at least one of his top guns at us in that final series even though his team will likely have clinched by then. He’s probably still bitter about having to walk off the field in ’95 after the Braves beat out his power house lineup in Cleveland. I’ll never forget that image of him mopping down the tunnel of Fulton County Stadium. Man he looked ill.

  174. BravoMan

    September 25, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    Moping, not mopping. LOL! He does look like a janitor though.

  175. biz

    September 25, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    BravoMan. I love it! The Braves sure made Charlie in the Indians look stupid in 95. If it wasn’t for 95, your impotent manager and that squad would have made the post season 14 times without a single WS pennant. LOL. How pitiful would that be?

  176. Andrew from waldorf

    Diaz looked great in that last series. He made one play and that was on a streaker. That might have been the highlight of Atl’s whole series. And then your squad of merry idiots made J-Hey dress up like the Easter Bunny for the trip to the airport. You should be thrilled that your team has it’s priorities straight. Playing practical jokes right after getting swept out of the pennant race. You guys are just as pathetic as the NY Mess.

  183. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    September 25, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    Beltran is so 2005. What a loser. Too bad he didn’t tear up his knee again. That would have been poetic.

    He should use his takeout slide on Jeff. I’d cheer that.

  189. BravoMan

    September 25, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    biz, I agree about Beltran. He’s a douche. But, you have to admit Utley did go in the bag late. Playing aggressive and dirty ….there’s a fine line and Utley crossed it.

  190. bacardipr05

    September 25, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    Kyle pitched a decent game he should of been pulled when he got in trouble a lil earlier i think….cant win them all…i think durbin is sort of falling out of the lil circle lately…

  191. bacardipr05

    PS..Chooch should of got the MVP…

  192. Shag beta sigma delta

    September 26, 2010 at 12:32 am

    guess everyone is in bed, just got home from the game, one bad inning, oh well you can not win them all. Maybe you pitch Cole on regular rest and win the game, but I think in the situation they are in it makes sense to give the top three an extra day off between starts. Maybe the Nats can come throuth tomorrow and the phils can wrap it up at home, on fan appreciation day. If the braves find a way to win the only bad thing is that they will have to wrap it up on Monday with Doc, would be kind of poetic, figure DC is kind of home games for the Phillies they just bat first. Will be back down tomorrow to hopefully see Cole pitch another gem and Phillies win.
    And by the way, the Jeff’s comments are rather funny. But there is a reason that Philly fans get the wrap they do because Jeff is the loudest ignorant fan on this site calling the Big Guy is over rated and over paid, he is the bandwagon type fan that gives us real fans a bad wrap, but you have to admit it can be rather humerous
