(Hopefully) good sports essays and observations for good sports by a guy who tries (and can sometimes fail) to be a good sport.

The Truth of the Matter. . .

is that if you're a Philadelphia Phillies' fan, no lead is safe.

I went to bed last night with the Phillies holding an 11-3 lead over the Cardinals. I went to bed hoping that the bullpen would be good enough to hold onto the lead.

Seriously.

Ask a Phillies' fan, anywhere, and he'd tell you the same thing -- that no lead is safe.

I wasn't surprised when I read in the morning's paper that they held on to win -- 13-11 (they had led 11-0).

Such is the life of a Phillies' fan. You have a position player lineup that is capable of winning the World Series. And you have a pitching staff that is capable of winning the Little League World Series. Okay, that's a bit harsh, but it's been like this all year in the City of Brotherly Love. The hometown nine are fun to watch, there's no disputing that. But those under a cardiologist's care should not watch the game from the 6th inning on or when either J.D. Durbin or Adam Eaton is the starting pitcher, for that matter.
