    Philadelphia Phillies Halfway Finished

    When you saw the Phillies win the World Series last season, you were probably surprised. Almost everyone was! The Phillies are the team that took a long time to finally win a championship, having come close several times over the years. Many teams disband after winning a championship, but not the Philadelphia Phillies! They are the team that is still winning a lot of games and look like they will be able to take the NL Eastern division. They have some tough competition though, since both the Mets and the Marlins are dangerous teams in the same division. This year is looking like one of their best, with Raul Ibanez leading the way in batting average (.312) and home runs (22) at the midway point in the season. Moyer is leading the way with the pitchers, having already won 6 games with 50 strikeouts. This 39-36 team is about to start really performing well. The Phillies game schedule has them playing great games almost everyday! Their relative quiet at the beginning of the season will give way and show the strong team that they actually are! Can they repeat their championship in 2009? How will they perform against their division rivals? When you order Phillies baseball tickets from Vivid Seats, you’ll get a great deal and see one of the best teams in the league this year!
