Philadelphia Phillies: Good for something

Those (like me) that live around the Philly area know well that it's the Eagles that get most of the sports "respect" out of the major sports teams. However, as AJ Lynch notes, the perpetually aggravating Phillies have actually surpassed the Eagles in at least one regard:

I saw a letter in the newspaper this week and the writer was complaining that when the NFL deems the Eagles may be "a playoff team", the Eagles quickly send the season ticket holders an invoice to pay the Eagles for the playoff tickets. But if the playoff game is never played cause the team does not make the playoffs, the Eagles don't send a refund- THEY GIVE A CREDIT TOWARDS NEXT YEARS SEASON TICKETS!!! Well that is pretty frigging stingy. The letter writer estimated the Eagles could make mucho dinero in interest on that money.

Compare that to the Phillies- I bought playoff tickets online this year and when the Phils did not make the playoffs, they credited my credit card for the full amount of $304 including the relatively measly $4.00 service fee. I was pleasantly surprised. So Kudos to the Phils and Jeers to the money-grubbing Eagles!

Amen to that. Now, let's just hope the Phils will finally get their management act together and frickin' make the playoffs next year. One more key move to make: Axe manager Charlie Manuel NOW!

unfortuantely for me, fortunately for you, the phillies raided the cardinals by taking abraham nunex who filled in nicely last year when rolen went down proving he can be an everyday player....Even a cardinals sub is better than most....tears for me.....kudos to the new phillies gm.....

I'll definitely be back for games next summer. I can barely wait.

Utley for President.

The Eagles have to grub for every last dime to pay Donovan and T.O. their outrageous salaries as they sit on the sidelines.
