After tonight’s 6-1 loss to the Jays, it’s time to audit the 2009 Philadelphia Phillies.

Losers but with the possibility of promotion

Yeah, you’re not going to find that kind of great analysis anywhere else but here. I was initially going to request a grant before doing the research, but didn’t feel like filling out the paperwork.
Compared to last year, the Phillies are really lacking players in the “cool” department. Maybe they need to order some new sunglasses or some leather jackets.
They’re now 9-14 in June, are tied for first place with the Mets (currently losing 4-1 to the Yankees) and have but a half-game lead on the Marlins (tied 3-3 with the Rays).
The loss tonight brings the Phillies back to .250 in interleague play (4-12). Two more games left before the nightmare is over.
Segue into an excuse to embed a song. Done.
