Bring on the Phillies!

Well, what can you say?  After that dreadful start to the season, the Phils are red-hot, and could catch the Braves any day now.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'd love to see the Phillies battle us into September instead of the Braves.  The geographic proximity and the animosity of the two fan bases could lead to a really intense pennant race.  Plus, I've got some good friends from college who are Phillies fans, and I think it would be great to trash talk about more than just Giants-Eagles for once.

Plus, the Mets and Phillies have never really battled in a pennant race before.  The Phillies were mediocre to awful in 1969, 1973, 1986, 1988, 1999, 2000, and 2006, while the Mets were mediocre to awful in 1976, 1977, 1978, 1980, 1983, and 1993.

So what do you guys think about the possibility of a race to the wire with the Phillies?
