“I choose not to look at it that way. Those thoughts do creep in occasionally and we know we need a little more offense. But, pitching and defense wins games. That’s the old adage. As long as we’re in the game, we feel like we can win. So, of course I would like to get some more offense out of our guys. And I think we will, little by little. For right now, I choose to believe we’re as good as our record.”
— Phillies manager Pete Mackanin, on concerns the winning won’t last with the offense averaging only 3.3 runs per game.
