Phillies and PoliticsJust to piggyback on Daniel post, I think there may be some light at the end of the tunnel.
The consensus seems to be that the Phillies will score a ton of runs. ESPN.com polled insiders about the best lineup in the National League and the Phillies finished third behind the St. Louis Cardinals and Marlins. Many believe the bullpen could be one of the best in the league - and the best in the division - if Wagner stays healthy and dominates as he has in the past.Interestingly enough for the readers of this site, the first Phillies game I went to at the new stadium was with a bunch of people from AFSCME DC 47. From what I hear, DC 47 President Tom Cronin and Seth Williams have some sort of announcement they'll be making today.
Update: Matt over at Philly Future weighs in on the political implications of the Phillies being broadcast on 1210 AM.
