Fools rush out...

I knew I shouldn't have stopped watching last night's game when I did (top of the eighth) - Jim Thome scored the game-winning with a homer in the bottom of the eighth, to put the Phillies just 1/2 game behind the Marlins in the Wild Card race.

Thome really is the man right now - he has hit three home runs in the last three games, and last night he was pretty pumped-up as he rounded the bases. This is why the Phillies brought him in from Cleveland, and he's one of the reasons that they're still in with a shot at a playoff spot.
