What more can be said? How much more clear does it have to be made?

The Philadelphia Phillies have made an authoritative, boisterous statement.

Doesn't matter what the fans of the Philadelphia Phillies think, doesn't matter what the Atlanta Braves fans think, the Philadelphia Phillies, are indeed, the team to beat in the NL.

If you doubted the Phillies, thank you. You may have been the one to fuel them. If you ever called into question the integrity of this team—there was no reason.

The Phillies have proved they're the team to beat in the NL with an astonishing 18-3 September, complete with a 10 game winning streak, and a six game lead with nine games to go.

Their 'magic number' is down to four, and they trail the New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins for the best record in the league by a half game.

Make no mistake, the Phillies right now, are the hottest team in the league and if you have suspicions that they may finish the season with the best record in the MLB for the first time since 1977, you have every reason to.

The Phillies have three games a piece left with the ever-struggling, New York Mets, the lowly Washington Nationals, and the Atlanta Braves. It's not crazy to think the Phillies will lose, at the most, three more games.

That would mean, they win two out of three in the series, for the rest on the season. I happen to believe they will only lose two; possibly three.

They'll sweep either the Mets or the Nationals, and possibly lose the last two games of the season.

Meanwhile the Yankees have six out of nine games left with the Boston Red Sox.

My gut has been right all along. And it's well documented.

When folks were worried, I had faith.

When it came to the Braves, I felt a sweep.

I mentioned a while ago that I felt they would do something they haven't done since 1977, and that's finish with the best record in the MLB. It's right there for the taken.

It would be a major statement for them to do so.

With only nine games left, against two weak teams, and a team they're clearly superior to, I can still feel it in my bones:

The Philadelphia Phillies will finish this season with the best record in the MLB.
