The Phillies start the final act to their 2008 season by entering Atlanta to take on a Braves team that is probably still unaccustomed to playing the role of late season spoiler. Despite the best laid plans and pre-season predictions, here sit the Braves with another losing season and little to do but hope for good health next season.
Jamie Moyer goes on normal rest for the Phillies tonight against 22 year old rookie righthander James Parr, not to be confused with Jamie Farr. Hopefully he won't gong our playoff hopes, like all these rookie pitchers always seem to.
The Phillies can move into first place in the NL East with a win and a Mets loss, or the Wild Card lead with a win and a Brewers loss. The permutations get pretty complicated, but for all intents and purposes playoff berths will go to the best two teams out of the Phils, Mets, and Brewers. Just win, baby.
