What a way to end the first half (or so) of the 2011 season. The Phillies demolished the Braves 14-1 to head into the All-Star Break tied for a franchise best with 57 wins (and only 34 losses). That's good for the best record in MLB, and the largest division lead at 3.5 games. With the way the starting pitching has been, I really can't see this team not finishing as strong as they've started. Next stop: another division crown and 100 wins.
Also, congrats to the Phillies All-Star representatives: Roy Halladay (starting pitcher), Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels, Placido Polanco, and Shane Victorino (fan vote). Only Roy and Cliff are playing in the game, but good luck to the NL regardless.
