Skid row

It was cute, then it was irritating and now it’s downright worrisome. What on earth are the Phillies doing?

Lidge was a problem. And then the bats fell silent. And then, despite being swept and some skidding, we had the Nationals and Mets to pad our season stats. The two worst teams in the NL East (and practically the entire league), what more could you ask for?

Well, maybe you could ask for an eight-run unanswered comeback to get the fire back in the Phillies’ bellies.

But even if you asked for that, it would be blown in the ninth as the Phils’ couldn’t hold on (again) and Madson blew the save for another disheartening loss.

If you guys can’t win against the bottom of the barrel, what hope do we have left for October?
