Sinking Fast

This may be what rock bottom looks like.

Roy Halladay looks eminently hittable.  His catcher is thrown out for arguing balls and strikes.  The offense continues its anemic production, especially with RISP.  Oh, and the Phils lose to the Nats again, the thirteenth loss in their last sixteen meetings and fourth in five tries this season.

The natives are understandably restless.  They've become accustomed to winning.  The players look uncomfortable and defeatist.  They've become accustomed to winning, too.

All good things come to an end.  Anyone waiting for the Phils to turn things around is advised to breathe.
