Phils lose Game 6, 7-3, lose series 4-2

I write very mad
When the Phils have played so bad.
I'm tired. And sad.

Prelude to Game 6 -- the Phanatic takes Manhattan

King Kong has nothing
On the Phillie Phanatic
Game Six is tonight

Phils win Game 5, 8-6, trail series 3-2

The last two innings of Game 5 were downright unwatchable. I think Yanks have an edge in Game 6, but the bats seem to be breaking out in time to catch Pettitte on a bad night with only three days' rest. The team won't die until they're dead, as you can imagine Yogi Manuel saying. Today, a haiku from yours truly, and then some guest haikus.

Lee pitched well enough.
Chase Utley is a monster.
Can Phils win two more?

Guest haikus

Chase homers again.
The bullpen almost blows it.
What a nail-biter.

Shane lost a finger.
Damon is our nemesis.
Howard’s bat’s asleep.

Phils down but not out
Now that three two is the count.
It's back to the Bronx.

Phils lose Game 4, 7-4, trail series 3-1

I will not write verse
When the Phils play as if cursed.
I may need a nurse.

Phils lose Game 3, 8-5, trail series 2-1

I don't write haikus
When the Phillies play and lose.
It gives me the blues.
