"We're definitely enjoying playing," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said last night after the 4-2 win clinched the seven-game 2012 Should Of Been Playoff Series against the first-place Reds and Nationals this week.

"If you watch us, we have a little step in our get-along. We're good." All true, as the post-All Star Break is that 93-win pace we were all hoping for before things went so terribly wrong. So today presents a lovely opportunity for the Phillies to sweep the first-place and Strasburg-free Nationals at home. There to stop the long train of lovely and talented young starters with eye-popping peripherals from cuttin' in on his claim will be lonesome cowpoke Cliff Lee, who last pitched on Tuesday night before his latest and partially teammate-induced dugout spazout after he was removed from the game during a depressingly routine, wheels-falling-off seventh inning.

Let's forget about it. We've got a step! So get along, little doggies. It's your misfortune, ain't none of our own.
