My beloved Phillies lost in game 5 of the NLDS. The series was tied at 2 apiece. The whole season was hanging on this one game and they lost one to nothing. Neo-diety Roy Halliday sucked in the first inning and allowed what became the winning run. The Phillies bats were silent all game long. Where as the Cards were hitting. The Phils defense was good enough to keep the Cards in check but again their bats were silent. DAMN it’s hard being a Phillies fan! The best record of any team in baseball this year. 102 wins during the regular season and they blow it in the first round of postseason play. I was convinced that they would be playing the Brewers for the NL pennant. Well now it’s the Cardinals who will play the Brewers for the pennant. I’m tired of getting my heart broken in the post season every year. Unfortunately I’m a Phillies fan and next year will be excited about their chances in March and I’ll follow them all summer long and be excited for the postseason all over again. What can I say? It’s a hard thing to be. I’m a Phillies fan.
