PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A few former Phillies are having success for their new teams in important playoff moments. Some Phillies fans who are having a tough time watching.

Crushed dreams are abundant in South Philadelphia, but watching Raul Ibanez and Jayson Werth hit game winning home runs for other teams is particularly tough to swallow for these fans.

“We’re used to a let-down, being a Philadelphia fan as it is. But it stinks watching when somebody else is playing.”

“They made a lot of mistakes this year, getting rid of Raul Ibanez, and I think that’s why they had a crappy season.”

“Raul Ibanez, I think we got rid of him too soon. He’s a clutch player.”

“It’s the Philly history. That’s what happens. They go somewhere else, they play well. Here they don’t. That’s the life.”

So who’s to blame for the Phillies’ failures?

“Ruben is a little responsible.”

“Just injuries. Your guys ain’t healthy, you ain’t gonna win games.”

Some fans say they can’t watch baseball when the Phillies are out of it.
