Phillies Breakfast Links, September 28, 2009: Skin of Teeth, Psychic Trauma, Gutless Nats

 

Astros-Phillies Preview
Those of us who lived through the Biggio Tragedy of 2005 will fear the Astros forever.  The good news is, the Phillies miss Wandy Rodriguez this week.

Coste returning to his first fan base
Welcome back, Chris, I guess...
