Now, the Phillies lose three in a row AT home to the lowly Astros. On top of this, they can't score. They can't even score in that sandbox of a stadium they have. Plus, the great Doc Halladay pitched tonight.
Ahh, it's going to be okay Braves fans, I promise. At least we don't have to deal with jrob as I'm sure he will not post for a few days. I'm sure he will be "at the beach and busy".
Philly losing again with Doc on the mound takes a little bit of the sting off this one today. It's almost uncanny how the Phils and braves are mirroring each other right now. Even with that in mind...
Just think how huge it would have been if the braves had taken 2/3. We would be 4.5 clear and in position to put the Phillies away and avoid a protracted race to the finish. It will take me a while to get over blowing a 9 run lead and if we end up losing the division by a game or two, I will look back to today's loss more than any other this season as the reason.
Tomorrow is a new day though. Hopefully the guys can shake this off and get back to winning series.
