6 left to play!
Here we are entering the final week of play:
- The Phillies are 85-71
- Two games behind the East leading Mets
- Dead Even with San Diego in the Wild Card
- The next three games against Atlanta
- Will face two tough pitchers in John Smoltz and Tim Hudson
- Atlanta has the edge, they are relaxed, nothing to lose
- The Phillies could be tight, they are so close they can taste it, but they must play well
- Jamie Moyer tonight vs Chuck James
For the Phillies to do well, the big guy at right, Ryan Howard, must cut down on his strike outs and drive the ball.
The skipper, Charlie Manuel, in the final year of his contract, has got to make important decisions under pressure. He's got to use his bench players better than he has in the last couple of games. Chris Coste can be a key player if he is used properly.
So fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride for what could be the six most exciting games in Phillies history.
