Playing the Spoiler: Braves at Phillies Game Thread, September 8, 2013

There's still a bit of fun left in the season...

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

No, there will be no postseason for the Phillies this year. But in the remaining 20 games, the Phillies can still have a bit of fun. They can still make life hard for the Nationals and the Braves. Winning games is still hard for the Phillies, but by doing it at the right time, they can make the Braves and the Nationals very sad.

Making other teams sad is all that's left. Let's all take joy in that.

Three cheers for Freddy Galvis' long pants. Discuss the game in the comments below.
