Allstarjim Posted August 28, 2008 Share Posted August 28, 2008 Have been greatly exaggerated! If anyone was paying attention to the sports news world today, it was all about how the Phillies were going to run away with this thing now, after last night. One night later, they are back in 2nd place. This team is not the team from last year. They are much more resilient, although I wonder about David Wright's mental toughness, because he was shitty in both games, especially with runners on base. I mean, in that last at bat, he swung at a fastball down and away (in the dirt). That tells me he is letting the situation affect his approach, and consequently, his focus. Normally David is pretty patient hitter. Same for Carlos Beltran... he has been coming up small in big spots far too often. But thankfully Reyes and Delgado are not.
