Oh ok, my bad then. Yeah, the late 90's Phillies were ridiculous in that sense. And as others have said, that's been the norm for how the team has operated for most of their existence. I love the team, and part of me enjoyed that era because of the hope of the future (who hated ten dollar tickets?), but they've been plagued by cheap/bad ownership/managment seemingly forever. Some of it gets masked by the fact that they've been able to squeeze in a 2-3 year competitive window every ten years or so.
