What is winning?

There has to be a way for the Phillies to win. Some way. Somehow. I don’t care how they do it. I don’t care how it happens. Meteor. Act of God. Sinkholes. Enormous birds. A torrent of grape jelly. THE GHOST OF BEN FRANKLIN WHUPPING SOME ASS.

Just do it. Please win. Please. I’m begging you. We’re begging you.
