The Phillies are awesome and awful and weird and unpredictable all at the same time. I think we all need some therapy.

The Phillies may not be what most people consider "good", but I'll say this much about them: they're interesting and confusing. They lost two of three to the Reds, a team they typically own. They swept the crappy Padres, and then lost two of three to the also crappy Cubs. And then? They swept the Braves!

I'll say it again: the Phillies swept the Braves.

Go home, Phillies, you're drunk. But don't drive. That's dangerous!

Now, the Phillies face the hated Cardinals. Well, hated by me. If I ever get over 2011, I'll let you know. What will the Phillies do this series? I have no earthly idea. None whatsoever. But that's why I'm going to watch them.
