Paint drying and grass growing come to mind...
I can't believe this sh*t team has its own thread.
The Phillies have gone from being the worst team in MLB to the best without the money of the Sox or the Yanks
Btw, Keith, I saw you maybe'ed the LFCNY invite for this weekend. If I'm still onstrike this weekend, I'm gonna try and get over there since I'll be in the city anyway.
I'll find out tomorrow if I gotta work Sat. Be nice to have a pint with ya. You with Verizon?
The stats speak for themselves guysOh and we didn't have to buy the World Series in 2008
Yeah, Stats speak for themselves - 27 titles being the biggest one. And f**k the buying titles talk. Any team in baseball has to spend money to win. Even if you don't have the HIGHEST payroll, you're still spending way more than the shitty teams who can't afford to bring any of the depth of talent the top teams have - therefore buying the title.Not to mention 20 of our 27 titles were won before the Steinbrenner years.. that's a tradition of winning, as Eric said.
I just think you can't deny that the Phillies are the best team in baseball right now and to do that without the money available to the Sox and the Yanks is impressive
Philly does have the 4th highest payroll out of 30 teams. They spent 50 million more than the world champion Giants. They have money and a new stadium.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Citezens Bank Park is 7 years old, it's not that new anymoreHowever, it's new enough that I haven't been there, I haven't been to a game since Travis Lee played for us ^.^
7 years is like brand new, at least to me. I'm an old fart
