The Richmond area has had an inordinate amount of rainfall this summer. It's gotten to the point that most central Virginians are saying things like, "another day, another thunderstorm". Coincidentally, Phillies fans are beginning to utter a similar statement, "another day, another loss".
Tuesday night's loss to the Astros is summarized nicely by number of sources and Marcus Hayes does a fine job in Wednesday's Philadelphia Daily News. After reading the article, I came away with this take home message:
Larry Bowa has stayed up a lot of nights analyzing the Phillies woes and has decided that you need to score at least one run to win a ballgame.
Someone call Bill James.
