The Phillies are struggling. The Braves have zipped past them in the NL East standings and other than Roy Halladay's perfecto there hasn't been much to be gleeful about in Philly. The 2-time defending National League champs are 6-12 in their last 18 games.
Last night on our radio show, Kevin Wheeler our Turf baseball analyst from KMOX radio in St. Louis, simply said that there is nothing to worry about with the Phils. It is one of those cases where everyone seems to be in a batting slump. The people who should worry are the teams that face the Phillies once they get their act together and break out of it.
So in the meantime Phillies fans, put down the razor blades and step away from the ledge, your team will be fine. On second thought, if you really want to put the blades to good use or take a flying leap, that is alright by me.
You know I'm only kidding Philadelphia. Sort of.
