So we're looking at 8-9 years of the past almost 36?

This is without getting in to the terribleness that they've been since their founding. They go through brief patches of awesome, then their cheap ass owners bring it all crashing down. Late 1890s, early 1950s, late 70s/early 80s, one year in the 1990s, then the mid 2000s. That's the entirety of good Phillies baseball. No wonder my wife always ask why I still follow them. Of course, she's a Red Sox fan...
That's the great reason of rooting for an historically bad team , they don't win often but when they do, it is a much better feeling than winning 3 championships in a row.

I'm really excited for this game not only the amazing alumni and revealing Schilling's wall of fame , but to watch Martin's first game , finally something to be excited for.
