Can't believe they have a winning record

The following is a list of things that have gone wrong for the Phillies in the first 30-plus games of the year:

* Reigning MVP Jimmy Rollins has missed a month with a sprained ankle;

* Starting center fielder Shane Victorino would miss 2 weeks with a calf injury;

* 2006 MVP Ryan Howard would be hitting .165 with just 6 home runs;

* Opening day starter Brett Myers has just two wins and an earned run average over 5.

Yet on May 9, the Phillies are 20-16 and just 1 game out of first. The hated New York Mets are 17-15.

So with all these problems, better things must lie ahead. When the weather heats up, so will the Phillies.
