I love winning! It’s like, you know, better than losing!
I found this quote in an old gameday thread from 2009. After sweeping the Washington Nationals, this quote seems to fit perfectly for the Phillies as of late. The Phillies are two games ahead of the Mets in the National League East for third place. We expected this of the Mets, but not the Phillies.
Vance Worley has had a roller coaster season: sometimes he’s great, sometimes he struggles. He’s coming off a decent start, so he needs to work on the consistency. He isn’t as good as he was last season, but he did have some injury problems. Regardless, he’s still a solid middle to back of the rotation kind of guy.
Your Gameday Beer: Holy Moses White Ale by Great Lakes Brewing Company
Tonight’s beer comes from Cleveland. It’s a Belgian-style witbier spiced with orange peel and coriander. It’s unfiltered, so there’s yeast at the bottom, which some people might not like, but it’s got a great aftertaste. There you have it. So buy your squeeze a bottle of Holy Moses tonight and get ready to watch the Phils battle. -By Michael
