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.
