There is a very real possibility that we could get swept for the second straight time at home by the Philadelphia Phillies. What a sad, sad sight it would be. We came into the series with the possibility of being only a game behind Philly at the end of it, if we had swept them, but we will instead be at least five games behind and we could possibly end up seven games out.
I've tried to avoid putting both feet on the giving-up-on-the-season bandwagon, but pretty soon inevitability will take the place of hope, and we all might have to admit that somewhere along the way this team short circuited where winning was concerned. It's really hard to watch player after player under perform night after night.
