Hey, the Phillies did what they needed to do. There was nothing the Braves could do.
But the fact is, the Braves still lead the Wildcard and if they take care of business against the Nats and FL they should be okay. I also think Philly would rest their big 3 that last series if the Braves are more then 3 back.

I don't think Cox did the braves any favors, he knew early last week what the Phils were up to in regards to starting the big 3, he went out there with the pop guns when it counted the most. Halladay had mediocre stuff and limited you guys (yankee phrase) to three runs, not bad.

You can look at it two ways. We need every win out of Lowe and Hudson right now. They might not have beat Phi, but they should beat Fl and Wash. We need wins to make the WC, not wins against Philly.

Good point, I think that I am going to head to DC next week to take in a game, haven't been to a baseball game in years. The O's are 20 min away, but they are horrible. Have to suck it up and head home to philly as well.
