The Ph****** Phillies will not be going to the playoffs this year. David Bell made sure of that with a ninth inning error in last nights game. I had stupidly allowed myself to be seduced by this team. I got excited as Chase Utley and Ryan Howard proved that they are going to be superstars. I was excited that Pat the Bat’s career wasn’t over. We had a world class closer, and two excellent setup men. I didn’t see a World Series in our immediate future, but I saw a dramatic sprint for the playoffs, a September to remember, and even allowed myself to dream about seeing a live playoff game. But our playoff chances are now about as good as Kanye West’s chances of getting invited to a White House fundraiser. The season’s over in early September, and there’s only one thing left to say. E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles!!!
