I think the question has now been answered. And it isn't the Braves. They better play better or they won't make the wildcard or the playoffs at all.

The Braves are more well rounded right now but the Phils are just getting going and will prove to be the better team.

Let me revisit this once we get our two best players back. Utley and Howard = an American league team in a National league park which is tough to beat. Something tells me that in the stretch run at the end of the year, the Phils will be really clicking and out slugging everyone which I hope is enough to make up for or sub par pen. I truely believe the Phils will cruise right past the Braves and won't look back.

Looks like a 6 team race to the 4 available playoff spots. I really hope both the Phils and Braves make it in.

It's like I am a baseball Nostraf*ckindamus.

is it really a surprise though? i mean, the phils were 7 back on july 21st and everyone was jumping off the bandwagon but you had to believe this team would turn it on at some point. they always do.

The Philles have Halladay. No, I don't consider the big 3 the big 3 because Hammels got LIT UP earlier in the season by the Braves and some other teams, and Oswalt is nothing more than a slightly above average starter. Halladay's record should be better, but a weak lineup in his past few starts or so haven't given him any run support. 2.17 ERA and only 13-8. Should be better for what many people consider to be the best pitcher in the NL.

LOL

Over his past five starts, Hamels is 5-0 with a 0.49 ERA. That's two runs and just 18 hits allowed in 36 2/3 innings pitched, with 35 strikeouts.

And the Phillies have won 10 straight games that Oswalt has started. are they the big three now??
