Just Enough of a Lead

I would just like to note that the Phillies are still in first place, and I'm feeling pretty good about that. It doesn't matter if you are one game ahead or ten games ahead as long as you are ahead when the season ends. Unfortunately, we still have almost a month to hold onto that lead, so hopefully we can get a little bit closer to ten games ahead as opposed to one game ahead, but as long as we keep winning, there is no way that we can behind. Makes sense? Of course, that is easier said than done, but the Phillies have an off day every Thursday for the rest of the year. We will at the very least be extremely well rested and not suffer from the exhaustion that many teams become prone to this time of year. Of course, if you prefer another team, there are some other great races out there. For example, the Yankees and Rays and the Giants and Padres have their own tight races going even though San Diego should not have been gone and lost 10 straight to be in this situation. Whatever, everyone is going to lose the Phillies anyway...
