Let's have some straight talk, Phillies.

You've got to win this game.

You're bad, we all get that. We all knew you'd be bad. But you need to understand that you can't let the Brewers, one of the worst teams in baseball (besides you, of course), sweep you in this series.

I don't need a lot of wins. My expectations are low! But I do need this one. Just one win to close out this series and end the home stand on a non-hopeless note.

Do you realize that the Brewers are about to sweep you? You do realize that, right? Please don't let that happen. I'm begging you. I don't care how you do it. Sacrifices, bargains, I don't care. Just win this game. Get a little closer to 30 wins.
