So, the Phillies are closing in on Atlanta as they are now only two games behind in the race for the NL East. However, the Phillies are still two games ahead in the wild card, so if the playoffs started today, I would still be relatively happy because I know we can beat anyone on any given day when the offense is clicking. Honestly, I do not think there is any team that can even approach the Phillies offensively. The only problem is that the offense has been incredibly unreliable this season. However, I know that if we dropped down to the shorter rotation headlined by Ray Halladay and Ray Oswalt alongside former World Series MVP Cole Hamels and the somewhat sporadic Joe Blanton we could definitely score plenty of runs to support these guys as well as our less-than-perfect bullpen. It seems as if we haven't quite lived up our whole potential throughout the full season, but we are definitely looking better now. I definitely do not think that a third consecutive National League crown is unbelievable. It is online to be an issue of potential. If we play as good as we can, I do not believe there is anyone who can stop the Phils.

After a year of economics, I have learned about supply and demand; to be honest, that's about all I remember. That's the concept I'm applying to this blog; I am supplying the quality writing that you as the reader demand (or at least I hope I am living up to your standards). My name is Zak Schmoll; I am a Business Administration and Statistics double major at the University of Vermont. I have been a sports writer in Central Vermont with the Central Vermont Sports Network, The Bridge, as well as a regular contributor to "The Local Angle," by Jim Higgins in the Times Argus, but I have now taken my audience to the Internet. I hope you will come along with me on my random journey through my mind on the Perpetual Blogging Co. Feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com with story ideas, criticism, comments, or honestly anything that will not crash my computer when I open it.
