Good News? Anyone? Bueller?

If you ask Phillies fans today if they can pass on any good news about this team right now, you will have a difficult time getting an answer.  So, good news?  Anyone?? …

Let us quickly recap all of the BAD news:

- The Phillies have now lost FOUR games in a row for the first time all year.

- Two of those losses  were against the last place Nationals (NL East) and two more against the fourth place Pirates (NL Central).

- The Phillies have scored three runs or less in all four losses.

- Since coming off the DL, Chase Utley is hitting .195.  He ended tonight’s game by flying out with the bases loaded.

- Ryan Howard suddenly looks like an automatic out at the plate.  He hits into the shift next to first base on a regular basis.  He hit there again tonight with an inning-ending double play with a man on third.

- Jimmy Rollins was removed from the game early with a patellar contusion.  He fouled a ball off his kneecap in the first inning.

- Brian Schneider suffered a “setback” in his rehab.  The Phillies say he is basically having to start all over.

- Brad Lidge had a setback of his own; he has stiffness in the shoulder he is trying to rehab.

I could go on, but that was depressing enough.  So here is the only bit of good news I have for you:  You can enter to win an admission ticket to the Phillies Phestival right here!  Entries will be accepted until Wednesday at 6pm.  Enter today!
