Can This Trend Produce Another Title?

Yesterday the Phils were down, again, very early. And once again it was from the longball — one powerful, Herculean shot by “His Name Is” Dan Uggla.

And once again the Phillies had to come back — this time in the latest possible moment: A two-out grand slam by Shane Victorino.

The Phillies have once scored first in a game.

A starter has yet to go a game without giving up a home run.

This begs the question: Can the Phillies repeat this way? Is there any way this brand of baseball can produce a first-place finish and second-consecutive world championship?

At some point this formula will cease and the Phils will, hopefully, lead a second game first. But talk amongst yourselves; It has been a scary trend.
