The last series against the Braves was close, w/ your starters playing, so you might want 2 tone down the arrogance a bit.

lol, you have had your arse handed to you, but you are still swinging. Your only hope to make the playoffs is if the Phils decide to rest everybody, you lost your best, and most consistent player, and your offense is nonexistent, the nats I believe had 2hits, 3 hits and 3 hits in this series. Your only hope is to outscore the Phils, and I don't think you can do that, or you better be 2 or 3 up in the wildcard going into the Phils series.

You didn't address my main point, that the last series was close & could have gone either way. But you still think the Phils are that much better? I hope you do rest everybody, so we can guarantee were in the playoffs. Let me make myself clear, I think we could win this series w/ your best on the field. If we make the playoffs & get through the divisional series (Phils as well), all that's gonna do is put the pressure on Philly. If we lose, who cares, we weren't supposed to win anyway. If you lose, there will be absolutely no excuse. Now, maybe you will see what I meant by tone done your arrogance a bit.

How close can a sweep be? You have lost your best player, blown a 7 game lead, trail the phils by 5 and are needing the padres to fold to make it, yes it's true I don't lack confidence. You have zero chance with our best on the field. Scrubs maybe, starters no.

What are you talkin about? We were forced 2 pitch 2 rookies (speaking of scrubs), one of which was making his major league debut. Despite this, the series was still close.

BS your manager could have done anything he wanted, he chose to pitch those guys, I knew who the Phils were sending to the mound and posted it. Cox should have read the bunker. And yes the Phils are still taking credit for the victories over your scrubs.

That's the most ridiculous response I've ever seen. You're like a little kid, & not worth responding 2 anymore.

Nice to see your Philly dickhead attitude come out again.

I hate to break the bad news to ya JRob but your Phillies really haven't been that dominant over the Bravo's this year. If you look at the season series The Phillies are only 1 game up on them. The last 3 game series played between the two, you guys did sweep but you might need to look at the line up the Bravo's were pretty beat up and having to play some guys that have had minimal exposure at the Major League level. You can't forget, the Braves swept a series back in late june early July. Braves are on a little bit of a streak right now and the confidence is building, not to mention the desire to win for Cox. The Phillies are worried, trust me, they don't want to have to face the Braves in the NLCS and honestly I can tell you worried too or you wouldn't be on here talking about it. Emotions will be high, the Phillies will be backed against a corner. If I was a betting man my money would have to go on the Bravo's. Hey, best of luck though, your little Phillies might make a good run at it.
