So how bad are people panicking now that the Phillies have lost Game 2? A 4-0 lead, with Cliff Lee on the mound, the odds would say the Phillies would be cruising up two games to zero.
Lost in the shuffle of the Eagles’ loss was the Saturday night celebration for the Phillies. They clinched the division in dramatic fashion, and it was a great night to be a fan.
The Phillies had a 5-0 record this week after the Hurricanes cancelled Saturday and Sunday. On Friday, they moved to 42 games over .500 for the 1st time in franchise history. An impressive accomplishment, but let’s not pop champagne just yet.
I was honored to be on WIP Friday night right after the story about the Eagles big signing of Nnamdi Asomugha to a 5-year deal. Then, around 8:30pm, I started hearing that a Phillies deal for Hunter Pence was coming down.
It’s Wednesday, and the Phillies are in the midst of their rematch with the San Francisco Giants.
With 17 days left until the trade deadline, I had the pleasure of speaking exclusively with the assistant general manager of the Phillies, Scott Proefrock, Sunday morning on Sportsradio 610 WIP.
Well, the All-Star game did have low ratings, & I’m sure Philly folks stopped after Cliff Lee was taken out, but nonetheless, I wanted to present my 1st exclusive podcast.
