MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

So this is the week the Phillies need to take. Playing against the Orioles and Pirates is about as easy as one could ask for when looking at the schedule. Of course, that hasn’t mattered much of late, has it?

It is almost imperative that they take at least five games this week. They get three against the Orioles, then four against the Pirates. How they get those five games doesn’t really matter at all so long as next week, when we all wake up on Monday morning, the Phillies have to have gone 5-2. That should keep them close enough to Atlanta to make the subsequent series against them meaningful.

On to the links.
