Phillies ponder future after falling way short
Phillies' win-or-else season falls way short of World Series title
By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' All those aces meant nothing at the plate.

The Philadelphia Phillies found out that pitching doesn't win championships. It takes clutch hitting, too.

An all-or-nothing season in which only a World Series title would be considered a success turned out to be an abysmal failure. The Phillies didn't even make it out of the first round of the NL playoffs.
