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!
