MLB: Phillies are Hotter Than Kris Benson's Wife

T.J. BeardCorrespondent IJune 6, 2008

The Phillies extended their NL East lead to 3.5 games tonight after socking it to the hated Braves in ten innings. 

In true Phillies fashion, it didn't have to be Howard, Utley, Rollins, or Burrell (HURB), winning the game,

Turns out, one Flyin' Hawaiian Shane Victorino would steal the show. 

In the VICTORy, VICTORino slammed two triples and gunned down Gregor Blanco at home plate for the final out.

That's what is scary about this team.  There are just way too many players to hurt you. 

The HURB members often get the headlines, but you can't ignore the way other players have chipped in. 

Whether it’s Eric Bruntlett's fielding—when Rollins is out, Greg Dobbs' pinch-hitting, or the bullpen's remarkable turnaround, this team is showing how dangerous it can be.

As competitive as the NL East is right now, the Phillies can put some serious ground between the Marlins--who are showing their true colors, the Braves--who appear to be in a constant battle against mediocrity, and the Mets (The Great Satan)--who are evil.

I am not worried about the Nats.
