Depressing. But that is what a real major league baseball team looks like. I hope the Lerners were watching tonight.

The Lerners were watching... watching the cash register drawers fill up. All else is immaterial.

The Phillies have been building a franchise since 1883. Phillies fans have been Phillies fans since the day they were born. You need longevity and a winning team to build that kind of fan base.

I'm a die-hard Nats fan now, but I was born and bred in Philadelphia and lived and died with the team in the 70s and 80s. While there is this generational thing about growing up as a Phillies fan, learning it from your father, passing it along to yur kids, and carrying it as a badge through good times and bad, let's not forget there has been LOTS of bad times for the Phillies. This is a franchise with a history of futility, except for the past few years. It was only 2007 when the team lost its 10,000th game and was reviled as "the losingest team in pro sports." http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/19778628/. Have faith and look forward to the day when the tables are turned.
