SignOnSanDiego Baseball—Bowa stunned players aren’t motivated by pennant race

Bowa is confusing lack of motivation with lack of talent. The Phillies played over their heads for 4 months and now they aren’t. It isn’t for lack of trying or desire to win. They just aren’t that good.

Feel free to insert “Red Sox” for “Phillies”.
