As the Philadelphia Phillies and their notoriously gracious fans prepare to invade New York for what weather permitting (Prismo work your magic!) will be a 3 game division series, here’s a brief look at what some Phillies’ bloggers are saying:
At Phillies Nation (attention Red Sox lawyers) they are worried that this may be a trap series for the Phils, a series in which the Phils must play uncharacteristic “small ball” to succeed.Â Reading Phillies Nation today reminded me that many reasonable fans of other baseball teams seem to have more respect for the Mets than Mets fans do.Â Either that or all fans just disrespect their own teams, you decide.
At The Good Phight they recap what they consider to be a disappointing series in LA with the Dodgers, and provide a list of Phils related links for your Phils reading pleasure.
At Beer Leaguer they have a trove of off day news and notes, my favorite of which is their embarrassment that Jimmy Rollins (.222 BA/ .261 OBP/ .322 SLG) currently leads NL shortstops in All-Star Game voting.
