The Philadelphia Phillies begin their final home stand of the season tonight. They will play three games against the Miami Marlins and then close out their home season against the New York Mets. It was a disappointing season for the Phillies, but they can prove something to their fans in these next six games.
The Phillies are missing the playoffs for the second year in a row, and they are going to finish with a losing record. They have disappointed the city of Philadelphia once again.
The Phillies are 20 games out of first place and are either going to finish in third or fourth place in the National League East. Their attendance has been dwindling down all season. With the return of football and hockey it seems as if baseball has been forgotten, and the fans only have this week to see the Phillies play until 2014.
The Phillies have something to prove to their fans. They have these final games to show they still care about the game of baseball. They can show the fans they still want to win and what they can possibly expect for next season.
It was a tough season for the fans as they had to watch the Phillies lose over and over again. They also had to lose a manger that they loved for bringing them a World Series. It seems that they have lost hope in this team, and the fans need something to restore their confidence in this team.
The Phillies can restore hope in their fans by having a good last homestand. They must bring their offense and good starting pitching, and if they have a lead in the game they must do their best to keep it. The bullpen can come in and not blow a game, and they must focus on improving as a team. The Phillies need to show the fans why they should not give up on this team, and in the final games they can show why they will be a playoff contender in 2014.
