Tuesday Scoreboard Watching Thread: Marlins play two vs. Phillies; Dodgers, Giants and Braves all on the road

As the Rockies get closer to clinching a playoff berth, Purple Row is starting to shift into playoff mode as well. This will mean more frequent posts to the front page, and as you've probably begun to notice already, old time users can expect a deluge of new visitors. Most of the newbies will be Rockies fans for right now as the season winds down, but as the season ends, fans from other sites and teams that are no longer playing will also pop in with greater frequency.

On different days these added FP posts will be different things depending on what our writers feel like. Since I sort of threw this on them yesterday and I have the most free time right now, that would explain why you get so much Rox Girl today, including this sort of lame cop-out post.

But hey, I do have a Ross Gload quote that takes note of the Rockies:

"It's getting to where we have to win every game," Florida's Ross Gload said. "It's getting to the point where we're running out of games. If Colorado wins every game the rest of the year, it doesn't matter what we do.

"The Phillies are going to be tough. They're way ahead and they have good pitching. Most of the season, you say, 'It's in our hands, and if we take care of business, we'll be all right.' That's not necessarily the case [anymore]. We need some help from some other teams in some other areas."
