According to my SI I got today (er, yesterday), the Phils have posted worse records in the second-half of all four of Bowa's seasons as skipper:
Pre-All Star: 187-165 (.531)
Post: 124-127 (.494)
Anyone a big history buff? I'm a big fan of the History Channel's Decisive Battles. It is an interesting program where they break down battles from history (and because they concentrate on the Ancient World, these are conflicts that most people are only dimly aware of) and show how they unfolded via detailed, computer game simulations of the battles. It's interesting stuff. Check it out.
