Bring on the Cardinals

Last night was one of the most amazing nights of baseball ever. At midnight, I had the Yanks/Rays on the TV and the Sox/O's on my computer and my feet up on the couch. It is stunning to realize that the Rays and Sox were each a strike away from the opposite of the result that eventually occurred.

As for the Phillies, here come the Cardinals. Seems pretty obvious that Tony La Russa is going to make Bruce Bochy look like the Grand Marshal of the Mummers Parade before this is all over. I'm feeling confident, though, because we have shredded the Cardinals's bullpen this season.

I have a feeling
that this time next week I'll hate
Tony La Russa

Anyone concerned
About this series should know
One thing about it:

The Phils have scored five
hundred sixty-five runs off
The Cardinals' bullpen.

Back for more in 2011

Greetings, readers. We are back for more haikus in 2011. This first set begins with an ode to the Phillies' six-game losing streak, continues with a clarification about which "season" we're talking about, and ends with a stunning prediction for the playoffs.

I think that I shall
Never see the Phillies win
Again this season.

Regular season,
That is. Come playoff time, they'll
Vanquish all comers.

Playoff prediction?
I foresee three Phillies sweeps:
D-Backs, Brewers, Yanks.
