What Should I Wish For?

I noticed something interesting about my last two posts. On Tuesday, I happened to mention that I would like it if the Phillies’ offense were to give Cole Hamels a bit more run support than they had been recently.

Lo and behold, the next day they gave Cole 10 runs worth of support! And they needed it, too, after the bullpen gave 6 runs right back.

In my next post, I asked that the bullpen culprit please be kept away from the mound for the remainder of the season. Later that same day, Nate Robertson was designated for assigment!

Wow! Two wishes asked, two wishes granted. My lucky stars must be perfectly aligned right now!

OK, that might be a bit much to ask for.

I’ll start small. Phils win tomorrow, Braves lose, putting the Phils back into first. Is that too much to ask for? I think not.

    Maybe the Phillie baseball Genie still has a wish in his magic tankard for you.
    Make this one a good one, possibly a 4-game lead over the Braves going into the last series would be great…..but I know your will go a bit higher on the totem pole.

    Jane – I tried, really I did. I mentally added your Yankees-victory wish to my wish list, but I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.
    Renegade – I figure three wishes in a row is pushing it, so I think I’ll save the next batch for when the Phillies and Braves go at it head to head!
