Hey, it's getaway day! I think. Is it getaway day if the Phillies aren't actually headed home next? Because they are not in fact headed back to Philadelphia. Their road trip will continue on to Miami after a day off tomorrow. And after that, the Phillies will head back to Citizens Bank Park for the last three games of the 2014 season.
I made up a little song about getaway day earlier, but then I realized I hadn't actually made it up. It was this song. This glorious, glorious song.
