Somewhere Larry Bowa softly weeps.

I do believe the Phillies were about in the exact same position at this time last year, although they were surging. I think they went from 8 back in the wild card to 3 back before ultimately failing. Larry isn't crying. He's saying "I told you so".

I will be at tonight's game. The fan reaction will be interesting. I imagine that Manuel benches David Bell for this game. Otherwise, his first at bat should be a Philadelphia classic. The fans have been waiting for this team to collapse with plenty of "I told you so"s going around. The ballpark is a morgue. When the Phillies are ahead, everyone wonders how they are going to screw it up. When they fall behind, there is no hope. This mindset really deadens the atmosphere at CBP.

I won't be there, so I'll get in my shots now.

And at third base David Bell...

Booo!
Booo!
Boo!

You suck you big baby.
My grandma's rotting corpse plays third better than you do!

The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

Fellas,

I only need a 2-20 skid now. The first 5 are always the hardest. I know you're capable of this. I know it.

Prove me right, lads!

Your pal,
Larry
