Default Well what are the thoughts

I go into every year thinking World Series Ring, Lombardi Trophy, Stanley Cup....I fall for it every year. For the Sixers I just hope to see respectable.
But as hard as I try I don't see it this year for the Phils. I'm concerned about .500
Does anyone see anything other than a long summer for the boys

I think .500 would be outstandingly nag for this group. I'm in Australia right now so keep me posted.

I love what they are doing, the only rip I have is keeping Howard around. He's DONE and you may as well pay him to sit at home at this point

I can see that mm but I don't see it coming together this year. It is nice to see them moving forward. The pitching is always the key and it will be interesting to see how this staff develops. I'm not sure they have all the arms they need yet. They also have young guys in the field that I hope develop into real threats. As for Howard I would suggest giving him to an AL team and having them pay you for each home run he hits but they will probably want you to pay them for each strikeout so it would be a net loss.
No, I am optimistic for the future but I generally go into every season thinking they can pull it out. Unfortunately this is the rare year where I just don't think they have any chance

Cubs vs Royals

Also... Mets fans are douchebags. I read more stories this past week claiming the Royals got lucky.

Phils in position to be 2-0 if the BP doesn't swallow and choke on the shlong. Nola gave up a HR in first and was lights out after. I really do like this team IF they find someone to finish games. Hellickson pitched a damn fine game on opening day as well.

Yea, the first two just show the absolute frustration. Go into the ninth up 2-1 after an outstanding game and then load the bases before giving up a gapper. Nice.

Whoda thunk they'd be at .500 at ANY pt in this season? It may be the high point now after only 10 games but VV's start yesterday was absolute mastery.
