Oh Please Oh Please

There comes a time when the urge to post overcomes the fear of jinxing the team.

We've won nine of the last ten games.

We're a game and a half back of the Mets for the division championship.

We're half a game behind the Padres for the wild-card slot.

In an insanely tight National League, we're showing toughness and tenacity, and we're winning, even if it takes extra innings to do it.

Oh God. It could happen. We could actually go all the way. And even if we don't, we've played a hell of a season.

But wouldn't it be perfect, wouldn't it be so totally Phillies, if we actually ended up with championship rings in the year that we also hit the landmark of ten thousand lost games?
