Don't miss dajafi's superb post on this, either. But it all comes down to this:

Their play over the next three weeks could determine the future of the organization that, at the start of this run, had all the makings of being able to sustain long-term success.

David Murphy: Time for slumping Phillies to promote Domonic Brown
In my mind, when a young taco pal tried to employ the "but Mom! All the other kids are doing it!" argument, it didn't go well.

These Phillies are baseball's worst situational hitters since 1940s
And the 1940s had the worst situational situations since the 1910s. My God, where does it end?

Cliff Lee: Philadelphia Phillies Fans Should All Be Fed Up with Lee | Bleacher Report
Eyeball scalding warning. My favorite parts are the sentence fragments, by which we are meant, presumably, to complete the thoughts that are left out there like so many baserunners on third base with fewer than two outs.

Revisiting concerns over Manuel's job security
Tap-dancing on the 50-yard line. Amazed by the Chollie bloodlust, also replicated on yesterday's poll. Not in love of all of his decisions, but he really is trying to make chicken salad most days. H/T? to EREX21.

Braves Offense Fails, McCann Robbed In Shutout Loss To Yankees - Talking Chop
Raul Ibanez has hit 10 HRs.

Fish Cap: Marlins 4, Red Sox 1 - Fish Stripes
Lots of mirthful joshing.

No time this morning for the minor league roundup, but check the Utley thread for taco pal's roundup of last night's stats.
