The National League version of the Yankees discovered you can not necessarily buy a championship.

Phillies manager Charlie Manuel let his pitchers run up pitch counts during the regular season opening them up to tiring, injury and/or mistakes at this time of year. He also failed to address the Phillies year long scoring problems and/or very poor hitting streaks.

New millionare Ryan Howard found out without steroids not only does your hitting tank those little nagging aches and pains do not go away on their own. He will now have to train year round, stretch/work on flexibility and learn the difference between strength and power training.

Since the Phillies got caught cheating during their last World Series Championship in 2008 that year is probably a fluke if you take out sign stealing, steroids and raw yet undeveloped talent. It must have been a very weak league that year.

The players should be doubling their xmas and birthday gifts to their pitching staff because they didn't carry the team they lugged them around like an albatross.
