It’s almost like it’s been a full moon all week long, from 19 innings to a hitter pitching and a pitcher hitting.
It’s all good though, especially as the Phillies managed to win 5 of the last 7 games, and get Chase Utley back in the line up.
During the last 7 games they dropped 1 out of 4 to the Reds at the Bank and then this past weekend travelled to New York and dropped 1 out of 3 to the Mets at CitiField.
It’s Memorial Day, and the Phillies are in the nations capital to play a 3 game set against the Nationals and a chance for Jayson Werth to remember and realize he really wasn’t and isn’t that good.
The week ahead sees a new month and the chance that the Phillies may actually be able to put a line up together that includes all the everyday players for the first time this season.
The question has to be asked is it more crazyness or a sign of the times, the Indians, the Diamondbacks, the AL East and the AL West. Most teams this week will have completed the first third of the season, are the Indians and Diamondbacks real or will we see a return to past years during the next third of the season, and who will emerge as the leader in the AL East and West because right now a week could turn either division upside down.
Lets hope June brings more excitement with maybe just a little less crazyness.
