After a bad time through July, the Phils are playing good ball, and the other contenders for the second wild card are stalled or slammed into reverse. They've moved to within three games of that last playoff spot, though behind three other teams. A week ago, I would have said the Phils getting into the race was only a mathematical possibility. Now, they're there. Who knows?
