Let me be the first to congratulate the Phillies on their winning road trip. Many people called this a make or break trip, but in true Phillies fashion, it was neither. They hung in there with the big boys, and would’ve won all four series if weren’t for that game two collapse in Florida.
But we should be happy still. I was definitely happy chillin’ in the Phillies box today at the lacrosse games at the Linc. The 9th inning offensive explosion really helped pass the time during the Hopkins-Virginia rain delay.
So back to baseball, now I would venture to say this homestand is the real chance for the Phillies to prove themselves. Playoff teams have better than .500 records at home, in fact they should be unbeatable. Opponents should fear Philadelphia, not show with a handful of quarters looking for the medium speed softball cages. So if you’re in Philly this June, come out and welcome the visitors in true Veteran’s Stadium spirit.
