With last night’s loss, the Phillies will officially finish the season under the .500 mark.  They haven’t had a losing season since 2002.  It has been quite awhile since the Phillies found themselves in this position, but these losing seasons allow the fans to be more appreciative of the winning seasons.  And for the young kids who have yet to experience the  misery of their favorite team losing, they will get a taste of what we all grew accustomed to when we were young.  Losing is all part of the Philadelphia fan package… but we love our sports teams no matter what.  That’s why we’re here today watching a meaningless baseball game: our passion for the team and the sport.

Now onto tonight’s matchup: Tyler Cloyd gets the start for the Phillies.  He’s struggled in his past two starts, not making it past the fourth inning.  Cloyd will be opposed by Dillon Gee, who has stepped up since Matt Harvey got injured. Gee has a 2.45 ERA in his last 10 starts.

Go Phillies!

    Tyler Cloyd is the pitching equivalent of Michael Martinez.

        As I was walking around the 1/4 full Citizen’s Bank Park that was as quiet as a church on Friday night all I could think about is the horrible job Amaro has done to this team. It’s stunning he still has a job. The reduction in season ticket renewals might really hurt his job security. There were 2-3 games this season when I literally could not give away my tickets.

    I’m off for the left coast for a few years, I’lllook in on my beloved Phils from afar but won’t expect much as long as Amaro is calling the shots.So long and goodnight.
