The Pundit thought the dramatic comeback win over the Mets on Tuesday was going to be the game that kicked the Phillies into high gear. Instead, it has apparently been the game that fried the Phillies bullpen. Two straight games with big 8th innings for the other squad, including last night’s grand slam. (Editor’s note: And another gem by Cole Hamels wasted). It’s okay though, everybody…seriously. Check out Beerleaguer for the latest Phillies news – we got Matt Stairs! (Editor’s note: I think I’ll celebrate by watching QVC. Or maybe I’ll just stare into space for a while). Oh, Phillies…why must you make us suffer?
