It's September 30th 2018, Phillies Fan Appreciation Day, the very last game of the regular season. The third place Phils, are playing a meaningless rubber match against the Braves, the NL East Champs. I am disgusted to even acknowledge that simply because, like the Phils, the Braves are a young, up-and-coming team who obviously did something right this season that the Phillies did not do.

This season, for Phillies fans, was about as brutal as they come. A team that was considered to be a third or fourth-place team at best in the NL East greatly overachieved, and found themselves in the driver's seat for their first division championship since 2011. However, a horrendous 21-34 record over the final two months of the season not only lost them the division, but it also knocked them out of the postseason entirely, and locked in yet another losing season for the franchise.
