Game 156 Open Thread: Phillies at Nationals

The end of the road.

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Today in Washington, DC, the Phillies end the road portion of their 2015 schedule. Let us all give thanks. The Phillies have a 25-55 record on the road this season, good for a .313 winning percentage. WOOF.

But, let's be honest, it's going to be a week or so of those kinds of stats once the season is over. Where this bad Phillies team ranks among other historically bad Phillies teams. If it hadn't been for that winning streak after the All-Star break, we would already be having those conversations. Small victories!

Seven games left, which means only seven more Sesame Street clips. I'll make each one count.

I'm not going to comment here on whether or not Oscar is a hoarder or if he needs professional help, mostly because Oscar is a furry Grouch monster. This is just how his people are. I'm sorry, not people. Monsters. But mostly, this song seemed appropriate because today, the Phillies say goodbye to the Nationals until 2016. GOODBYE, NATIONALS.
