As the Phillies continue our key weekend matchup with the Cincinnati Reds, current leaders in the N.L. Wild Card race, I want to make the Phillies aware of something: given last night’s tedious near-miss, they’re on notice
I do not watch The Colbert Report, but I like this because it has 8 spots, nicely corresponding to the number of hitters in the standard National League lineup. My demand is simple. Win. Take the Wild Card. I’m sick of just missing the playoffs. The Phillies should be, too.
