Slip-Sliding Away... 

With the Phillies 3-2 loss to the Astros the team just got swept in a tremendously important series. The sweep drops the Phillies from third in the NL East to fifth, and fifth in the wildcard race.

It is astounding how the Phillies can fritter away opportunities as they do. After going 12-1 in a June homestand they go 3-10 and drop back to fifth place after climbing to third. Now, after going 9-4 in a July homestand, the team has been swept. Given that the team will play most of their games on the road for the rest of the year, this does not auger well for the Phillies 2005 season.

Up next: the Colorado Rockies. The team with the worst record in the NL. The team that plays in a genuine hitters park. If we can't beat these guys, we're done.
