Fit to be tied!

Fit to be tied!


There will be Phillies' baseball after Sunday after all :-). They clinched a tie for the National League East title minutes ago with a solid 7-4 win over Houston, thanks to a grand slam by Pedro "Feliz Navidad!" Feliz, and aided by something most unexpected, a loss by the Atlanta Braves. So I think Chico Ruiz has effectively been picked off third base here. Now the big question is whether the arm of Ryan Madson, who got a rare six-out save tonight after a four-out save on Sunday, will fall off between now and the World Series, because if this '09 version is going to hoist the crown, it will be on Madson's back.
