It was cool going to bed last night and waking up this a.m. tied for first in the wild card race.
Now, there’s work to be done day-by-day. Each game is a must win. We can scoreboard watch but we need to focus on winning and controlling our destiny.
Yes, we’ve been in this position several times this decade and haven’t advanced but we need to look at the glass being half full, as Aaron Rowand has expressed. There are a lot of clubs who would love to be in our position.
For those Phillies fans living elsewhere in this country, the Phillies will be on national TV 7:05 tomorrow night (ESPN) and Saturday afternoon (FOX), a 3:55 p.m. start.
