@Wzeiders: After the trade deadline, what does a failure for the Phillies look like?
Pat Neshek is still their best reliever come August.
But this is a failure on par with not claiming the free ticket you won on a lottery scratch-off. The real failure is not that you missed out on another one in a million chance to win big. It’s that you weren’t paying attention to the ticket expiration date. Or that you thought framing the winning ticket and hanging it next to the motivational cat poster in your room would be good for morale.
