It’s pretty interesting to see what a difference Charlie’s meetings with the team make. I wish he had done it a bit sooner!
Last night’s game was just terrific. The Phillies took the lead, and when the game got close, they answered back, which is something that we need to see them do.

Well, we know one of them picked up their National League-leading 12th save in tonight’s 6-4 victory over the Red Sox. Papelbon tried to downplay the fact he faced and beat his former team for the first time. Asked if the night felt any differently, he said, “There was a little extra buzz in the ballpark tonight, a weekend game. But other than that, no.” Asked later if he planned to send any text messages to his former teammates, he said, “No. We’ve got to win the series.”
