Really to me what's most troubling is that it's a continuation. Of a season long trend of injuries they've had Michael Morse on the DL all season long. Jayson Werth recently went on the DL. -- store in their closer is also there when you start adding these players up this is a lot of very important contributors for that team in Washington. It's gonna be tough I think for literally sustained its momentum and -- this season losing a two way player like Wilson Ramos. JP -- Obama injury be just the opening the Phillies need to jump back into the race and actually -- O'Brien the Phillies need to help themselves first of all they have the worst bullpen ARA in the major leagues entering Sunday. I think they need to get some the regular players going before Chase Utley and. Ryan Howard returned in order for the return of Utley and Howard to have much of a difference Jimmy Rollins really having a nondescript season. Shane Victorino is going to be a free agent. He really hasn't done much for them under -- this seems like everybody that lineup is trying to contribute. What they're just not adding up the right way the starting pitching has been fine. We knew that was going to be OK but the bullpen and the everyday lineup have been big disappointments that team. It's gonna take more than I think one injury there for the nationals to get them back on track. Finally interleague play begins this weekend including charities prime time games on -- Which series are you looking forward to watching the most. Well I play well look at the schedule early -- looked like the Red Sox Phillies would be the marquee matchup of a couple first place teams that hasn't quite panned out so for me it's going to be that big showdown in Washington DC. Baltimore and Washington to the surprise teams early -- I know the national event of injury concerns recently. But I look for that that be electric atmosphere. I really helpless on all three games there and really have a tremendous celebration of baseball the belt way there with teams surprise teams should be very interesting and to see if those two teams can sustain the momentum -- that so far this season. All right JP thanks so much for the exact thank you. That's gonna do for this week's triple play presented by Pete not great great times to the table for job Paul -- I'm Bryan Webber will he would act out.
