Oh, hi. I thought I'd just post the National League East standings. For your Monday morning edification.

Philadelphia 88 68
New York 86 69 (1.5 out)
Florida 81 74 (6.5 out)
Atlanta 69 87 (19.0 out)
Washington 58 97 (30.0 out)

I'm just reporting the standings, people. Just in the interest of news. Also, I put my Phillies flag up on Saturday after they lost on Friday, and they won the next 2 games. I'm just sayin'...... 6 games left......

Hey, it's Monday night now, and I understand those Mets are two and a half back now. Go Cubbies! How about those Phillies? Greg Golson and Greg Dobbs and even Pat Burrell!!
The interesting thing about that series in New York is that if the Mets hang on to win the wild card I think they would play the Cubs in the first round of the playoffs (wild card vs. best-record division winner not in same division). Which of course would mean we play the Dodgers. If nothing goes wrong between now and Sunday.
So the economy has gone to hell - at least the Phillies have won ten out of eleven!

Please don't jinx it. I want to see the phils in a playoff game sometime again in my lifetime.

And yes, I know the Phils won the division last year. For the life of me I can't recall any playoffs. All I remember is, I got up to get a beer and the season was over.

gg - yes, it is Tuesday morning and the Phillies are 2.5 games up on the Mets. 'Nuff said.

ks - I'm trying very hard not to jinx it! (This is what my sister would call magical thinking - if I start talking about the Phillies in the post-season they will lose. Or if I switch flags when they've lost a game then they will win. I must let them go do their thing...)

Hey, I know I call it magical thinking, but why don't you just poke the jinx gods in the eye with a stick with all that saying/typing out loud that the Phillies are in first?!? Yikes!

cg - I don't think I'm jinxing it by stating a fact. It's not like I'm saying, "OHHH I BET THE PHILLIES ARE GOING TO WIN THE DIVISION!!!" which I would NEVER say. NEVER. The Phillies are 2.5 games ahead of the Mets right now.

That's all I'm saying, o mighty jinx gods.
