Interleague play is not new, in fact it's been going on for 13 years now. The Phillies haven't thrived on winning interleague games. The loss last night against the Blue Jays isn't good, but given the fact that the Phillies don't really fare all to well against interleague matchups doesn't cause me great concern or alarm.
I don't like seeing the Phils lose like they did last night though. Some nights no matter what happens it just looks as if the Phils wouldn't win. Last night was one of those games. No reason to sound an alarm, no reason to get upset, we're still 3 whole games up on the Mets.
They'll play two national anthems again at CBP tonight, when the Phils will again take on the scrappy Blue Jays.
