A 4 Game Sweep of the Nats!

It was great to see the Phillies win these 4 games.  It’s always important to get wins against your own division.  Even though they came back in a few games and put up strong run production, these aren’t the Phillies that made their World Series run.  The starting pitching has been suspect, the offensive leaders of this team look disinterested and the Manager hasn’t shaken things up enough.  Surprisingly, the newest edition, Raul Ibanez, is carrying the offense.  He’s been a consistent and patient hitter.  Is he the only guy on this team looking to win the World Series?  Maybe because he wasn’t on the squad last year, he’s jacked.

Anyway, for those who think these 4 wins over the weekend turn the season around, I will disagree.  These wins were more of a factor of the Nationals being the worst team in baseball with the worst manager in baseball, ever.  The Phillies did nothing more than squeeze out these wins because of their experience and ineptitude of the Nationals.  There is going to be a time when the Phillies lazy, carefree and lethargic play is going to really hurt their chances for making the playoffs.  Of course, a weekend sweep of 4 games, regardless of opponent, could give the team that “wake-up” call to get things going.  For me, I am still concerned.
