Saturday's loss to the Giants dropped the Phillies 8 games behind the Braves in the NL East and 4.5 games behind the Chicago Cubs in the Wild Card standing.
More discouraging than the news of the loss was the news of Jim Thome's shoulder injury. At this point, the injury will be evaluated on a day to day basis and there are no plans as of now to place the heart and soul of the Phillies on the disabled list.
