There be Pirates ahead.

We are so close to the All-Star break, and it’s very exciting. To me, at least. I’m super psyched about the Home Run Derby, but I think we all need a break from the Phillies. The Phillies need a break from the Phillies. They have roughly half of the season left to play, and it doesn’t get any easier from here.

The Phillies need to rest and recharge, and so do we. But first, we have a few more games left to play.
