Phillies to Send Post-Season Invoices to Season Ticket Customers

So says the e-mail I just received from the club.

Optimistic?

Yes.

Hubris?

Perhaps.

Chutzpah?

You bet.

This team has won 14 of 17 on the power of positive thinking and the hot bats of guys named Ibanez, Werth and Ruiz. Shane Victorino could be back in a week, Ryan Howard in two, and Chase Utley by month's end. According to Baseball Prospectus, the future -- this year -- is bright.

Zing? Oomph? Pluck? They have 'em by the bushels. Lots of ifs, but if you told anyone that they'd suffer the injuries they have and be 1 1/2 games out of first in their division on August 10 and 1/2 out of the wild card, the fans all would have signed up for that.

Stay tuned.
