Daily Debate: Phillies and the NL East

Listen to today’s “Daily Debate” between Pat Gallen and Mike Gill of 973 ESPN FM in South Jersey.

Today’s topic has to do with the Phillies as a whole. The NL East has been called a tough division by some, but with the Marlins fading (we’ll see what happens after this 4-game series) and the Mets and Nationals out of the race by Memorial Day, it’s basically down to the Phillies and Braves.

Our question, without sounding cocky, how many games will the Phillies win the division by. We put the starting number at six. Listen in to see what Pat and Mike take – the over or under.

    Sorry, Pat, but I can’t get behind this post at all. First off, Braves are a VERY tough team. Second, there is no way, in June, that anyone should be asking something of this nature. If (and I sure hope not) we were to run into bad luck with injuries to the big 4 and you’re looking at the question “How many games will the Phillies LOSE the division by?” Let’s not tread into Mets territory: http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/mets/item_QIBlTY56YbKSaqSTNbFY1I

    I know you’re a better journalist than that, Pat. :)

      Hey Phils, this was a radio segment. You need something to spice up the airwaves, and this usually gets the juices flowing.

      I’m never one to look ahead, but Mike Gill posed the question and I answered. If someone asked you how many games the Phillies would win the East by, what would you say? Would you say they will not win it?

        I’d answer them by saying i’m not the type to make predictions about winning the division before they’ve played the games. :)
