Key to the game: Play better.

In the distance, not so far away, I can see the team I'll be traded to. It looks like a nice place.

Good Lord, Phillies. What the hell? Can't you even win on the day commemorating the birth of our beloved country? You're the team from Philadelphia! You *should* win on July 4!

Please, Phillies. There are still 70 some odd games left. I have to watch most of them. Play better! Even just a little bit! Pleeeeease, please please please please.
