New York: 83-79
Not good. Looking at the standings today I was taken aback by Atlanta's surge ... can anyone beat these guys? The good news is that the Phils have gotten a little space from the Mets (5.5 back of the Phils) and the Fish (2.5 back), so now they can concentrate on chasing the Braves without having to worry too much about looking in their rear-view mirror.
The bad news is, despite a successful 5-1 West Coast road trip, the Phils remain well behind the Braves.
