Remember last year, when the Phils fired Bowa and people around Philly were gettign excited because there was a proven winner out there, just waiting to be snapped up? A guy who had won three division titles and had won a World Series with a team that, truth be told, really wasn’t that good? A guy who was extremely familiar with the National League, since that’s where he always had managed? Well, don’t worry, he hasn’t done much since he got snapped up by the Detroit Tigers this year. Well, with the exception of leading a perennial laughingstock to the best record in baseball. And the difference really seemed to hit home last night, as the Tigers came from two runs back in the 8th inning, while the Phils blew a three run lead in the 8th.
