In baseball at least. I'm not getting excited, I'm not, I swear, maybe a little, no, not getting my hopes up, I threw in the towel already, didn't I? The Phillies are 1 game out of the wildcard. 1 game behind the Marlins and a half game behind the Astros. Florida and Houston go up against each other again tonight. Who do we root for?
Rookie Eude Brito has stepped up and pitched a great game last night. For those of you who may not be familiar with Brito, here is a Daily News piece from mid August which gives a nice look at him.
For a good in depth look at last nights win check out Beerleaguer's take.
The Phillies throw Gavin Floyd to the wolves tonight. Hopefully he can surprise us all and get something going. Atlanta has righty John Thomson throwing. Hopefully the Phils can light him up.
