Three straight losses in which the long-dormant Phillies offense did a credible job against a top-flight starter and took a lead of at least two runs, only to see the formerly excellent bullpen piss it away. Regression to the mean is a bitch, and then your playoff hopes die.

Today, Brett Myers tries to break the trend against another solid pitcher, Cubs lefty Ted Lilly.
