Manuel: 50-win Phils could be even better

PHILADELPHIA -- We've been through this before with the Phillies.

We spend so much time talking about how many guys are hurt, or about what trade they absolutely must make, or about how they're just not hitting. And we forget about how many games they're winning.

They won 97 last year, the most in the majors (for the first time in franchise history), and it was almost like it snuck up on us. They're the first team in the majors to 50 wins this year, and it feels like it snuck up on us again.

That's 50 wins in 80 games, after all. That's 50 games, with Wednesday night's game against the Red Sox to play before the Phillies reached the halfway point in the schedule.

Halfway to . . . 100?

"I think we can play as good, if not better [in the second half of the season]," manager Charlie Manuel said. "If you start talking about 100 [wins], at the same time, that's a lot of games."

Only two Phillies teams have won 100 games. They did it back-to-back in 1976-77, and haven't done it in 34 years since.
