kthxbye
This will not be the end, when you fill the hole in his story with anything relevant he finds a way to divert around that hole.

I think next year after day 1 I will proclaim the strongest division based off of the one game. Or even better just based on the opening game.

But, in July I will backtrack.

Agree. The Phillies are getting older.

Yup it happens to every team in every sport. At some point all runs come to an end and that is evident with the Phillies.

A case can be made for the AL West as baseball's strongest division.

It is the only division in which every team has scored runs more than they have allowed.

And they are now 61-53 versus the East and 44-28 in interleague play.

The Mets are 36 - 50 since I posted this.

And the NL East is not the best division in baseball

They are the Cleveland Browns of baseball. I can't believe the Phillies have caught them again

Why wouldn't you believe that? The Phillies are a much better team than the Mets.

Because at one point i thought the mets were too far ahead of the Phillies on top of playing good baseball. Then they just fell apart like they usually do

You can't believe that you were wrong?
