Phillies Phans Phorewarned

This is one matchup that you can not phoretell!

Phanatics you're living in a phantasty if you think we're just gonna phall & phorfeit.

Man, I wish us Dodgers had that "ph" thing, I could go on for hours!  (but I imagine you're already quite sick of it)

O.K. then moving on:

I'm not saying that that the Dodgers are gonna come out smell'n like a Rose or you're gonna be smell'n like Schmidt.

It's just that no one is just gonna be Rollins' over the other, it's a Werthy matchup that will be quite the Tug of war as we both Chase the chance to represent the National League.

So it's gonna be an up Stairs battle for both and we'll just have to see who has the most Cole in the choo-choo.

Or which coach has the better Manuel & who ends up Eaton the other ones hot pants.

How about we at least agree that whoever gets the Victorino we at least Pat the other one on the back?

Now lets try to keep it civil.

No Phallic name calling here my Phormidable Phillie Phans!!!

Clairvoyant Conveys Cubs Cursed!!


Cubs Catastrophe Causes Capitulation!

Sorry Cub Fans, that's what the Clairvoyant Conveys.

Yes, I know the Cubs are the cats-meow and the Dodgers are the under-dogs.

You have all the makings of a championship team.  A first-rate pitching staff and a blue-ribbon batting lineup.

However just like the past 99 years..this ain't yo year either. Whether its going to be by the curse of the Billygoat, Bartman or some new black cat bewitching who's to say.

What I can tell ya is those Dodgers are the real Boys In Blue and they're not slowing down for no North Siders!

So before you start believe'n let me expel your expectations.  The Dodgers are come'n and they're bring'n their own aces with their own big bats and while you've been hexed, the Dodgers got the Gibson Blessing.

So don't be surprised when we leave you say'n HOLY COW!    

Go Dodgers!!!

Dodger Diehards Decide Dodgers Destiny?

That's right if the Dodgers keep winning they can't lose.  Hey I swear I didn't steal that from Yogi--but it sure wouldn't surprise me if he'd said it.

Yep.  I have it all figured out.  It appears we're in control of our own fate.  That being said our destiny is not set in stone.  That's' right I said it of all people- Mr. Upbeat.

So how about we hold off on popping those corks from the champagne? 

I guess it makes sense that if most people were quick to write off the Dodgers they'd be just as quick or apparently even quicker to call the West Won.  Saying "the race is over" just isn't the case. Even if there's a lot of Diamondback fans giving up that sure doesn't mean the Diamondbacks have.  I think a sweep over the Giants who have been battling like they were playing for rings as one Giant Fan put it (seriously it was said) pretty much says it all.

Now I didn't say I didn't like our chances. In fact, I'm downright giddy with almost certainty. All I'm saying is how 'bout we hold off on the threads of "who's next" until we've actually sealed the deal?

Think Blue!

Dodgers Devoted Diehards Demoralized

O.K. Who doesn't enjoy a good alliteration in a title?

Well I can't say enough about the heart breakers against the Phillies, Giants, & now even the Nationals.  Although disheartened by these losses, it's the continuous posts of doom that have taken their toll

I'm amazed at how quickly things have turned with our own fans.  It's only been about two weeks since our own sweep of the Phillies.  Do you remember our posts after that?  I certainly do.  Most of us were talking about how sweet the lineup was, Kuroda on fire, Kershaw impressing and Broxton being ready to be our next star closer.  No worries, tied for first & soon to be alone at the top. Now most of the posts are of condemnation, who should get fired & what we need for 2009.

You know I hadn't been familiar with the term front-runners until recently but maybe we're guilty of just that very term?

So we've had some disastrous embarrassments of late.  Is it enough reason to capitulate on the rest of the season?  I don't think so.  I've been a fan for over 30 years now and I remember times being down 3 games with only 3 to play and I was still cheering for the miracle.  This is a shame what I'm seeing.  We're 3 games back with about 28 games left.  That's hardly a time to call it a day and start the season ending sulk.

There's a phrase that comes to mind.  Something about "enjoy the journey not just the destination" .  Sometimes you get a few bumps and bruises along the way or for us a few gun shots and stab wounds, still that just makes it all the more sweeter when you reach your goal.

Now I'm not saying we're going to win the World Series let alone our division.  A matter of fact at this point I'm worried about getting passed up by the Rockies.  At least let the games play out and then see where we stand.  I would never give up on the season until it's mathematically impossible to win and you know what either should you.
