What a Difference a Week Makes

Phillies Nation in the News, Posts

Last week I on the radio interview, I was proclaiming how the Phillies were going to win the Wild Card after a successful series in DC. Now things aren’t looking so hot. After dropping 2 of 3 to the Pirates and the Dodgers, the Phillies are now scrambling for starting pitching as they begin a series with Wild Card leaders, the San Diego Padres. So on this week’s interview, I was singing a different tone.

Listen to Brian explain the Cole Hamels situation and flip-flop on the Phillies chances.

PNC ParkThe Phillies distressing week started off poorly in Pittsburgh. The club gave up four-run leads in two consecutive games and lost a series to a team they should have beat. As the Wild Card picture became more opaqaue, I got to thinking, maybe it would be better to focus on the Mets in this playoff race. Of course New York has won seven of ten, but at least the Phils would only be chasing a single team. Also, not to look past the Padres, but the Phils open up a four game series with New York on Monday to close out this home stand. Padres and Mets back-to-back, without Chase Utley and without Cole Hamels…is it even possible?
