With the Phillies actually doing well over the past few years, there's seemingly been a big increase in Phillies-related humor in The Onion. (The explanation is either that or that The Onion hired a Phillies fan to write for them.)
And today is as good a day as any to collect some of the great stories The Onion has published about the Phillies. After all, sometimes the best way to deal with a game like last night's is humor.
So here for your reading pleasure is a collection of great Onion stories about the Phillies (in reverse chronological order, so the links at the top are more recent than the ones at the bottom). Read them and . . . laugh!
