Be Positive!

We scored 6 runs in the first two innings! That's the only thing that mattered in the game. No one cares that the team only managed three hits in the final 7 innings. I don't give a shit that we struck out 12 times yesterday. It's not really important that Chad Durbin throw 6 strikes in 20 pitches and signs of him being overworked may be coming back to haunt us.

It doesn't matter that Pat Gillick was willing to overpay for Joe Blanton, but not a veteran reliever. As of right now, nothing matters.

Rollins, I'll support your team over this final stretch. Get your team together and light a fire under their ass. Let them know that enough is never enough. Though their hot week/cold week inconsistency currently lines us up for a cold final week, they're playing Atlanta and Washington at home, while the Mets hope the Cubs and Florida. A cold week for us against the Braves and Nats should at least mean winning 4 of 6.

We're back to square one. For what it's worth, we're now 0-0 to start the rest of the season. Be 5 games over .500 and we'll win the division.

I couldn't tell if your post was laced with sarcasm again...

It is and it isn't. For too long I've harped on the negative. For at least a week, I'll try the other side.

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
