One thought on “Notes From The Phillies’ 4-2 Loss To Atlanta

  1. the tank is on —
    Phils just tied SF for the worst record in MLB. Detroit lost six straight and are now only one game behind SF and Phils. Chicago White Sox 2 games behind worst record in baseball. STOP WINNING we want the first overall selection. Brutal season, worst team in baseball all year, unwatchable, now in the last a couple weeks they decide to start winning when everyone wants them to go down in defeat.
