Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.
The Philadelphia Phillies followed an 11 - 1 home stand with a 3 - 8 drop-off, the culmination of which was a sweep at home at the hands of the Boston Red Sox. Not only did the Sox embarrass the players on the field, the Sox fans over took Citizen's Bank Park. Since the Phils are so awful, hometown fans could only nod their heads at the insults spat by the visiting fans.
The final game of the series sums up an entire season. They stunk in the beginning going down 7 - 0 at one point. The middle was the big tease, they actually came back tied it at 8 all. Just like the tease of the previous home stand. Then, when they really need to hunker down and get a win, they fall short and don't have their "best stuff".
Or could it be the current manager is the biggest moron in this town since Rich Kotite. Did anyone else notice that it took the manager to get ejected for the Phils to come back?
