Default Phillies Wild Wild Card Run!

Hey Guys. I am a big Phillies fan and have three late september games to go to. The Phillies are making a run and are one of the hottest teams in baseball. My question is to you guys: What is the record the Phillies must go to make the last wild card spot? (Exactly 20 games left)

Also feel free to make your prediction of the last wild card team in the NL and why. Thanks for the comments guys.

My guess is 17-3.

I think they'll have to go 15-5 to grab that second spot.

Holy smokes...I had NO idea they were 4 games back in that wild card race...I had them left for dead a long time ago! With a little bit of luck, they could probably afford to go 15-5 or 14-6 and squeak in with that second wild card spot.

This weekend's series against Atlanta is going to be H-U-G-E!

I think 86 wins gets the 2nd wild card (at least a tie for it) so that means 15-5...and if the Cards go 10-10 in the span they Phils are in...11-9 and its a tie.

That assumes that the Pirates are dead (excellent assumption) and that LA doesn't get even hotter than the Phils.

Go Phils!!!

If the Phillies could have given Cliff Lee any kind of run support all season they would be leading in the wild card standings. Should be an interesting end to the season with the double wild card chases.
