Atlanta has the 2nd least effective closer of all playoff teams.

Only the Rangers/Angels closer will be worse.

I enjoy looking at the lighter side of life and, as they say in the UK, taking the piss out of people by getting them wound up.

However, Phillies fans too danm serious. You have the best team in the game, and have had for a few years. Before long it will all fade away. Enjoy it while you can and lighten up. Stop taking everything so personally. You make yourselves targets with you attitudes.

Lighten up, enjoy the ride, and learn how to have fun.
