Podcast: Are The Phillies Contenders Or Pretenders?

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- There has been a genuine lack of excitement for the Phillies this season for pretty obvious reasons.

However, after a pretty impressive sweep of the Braves down in Atlanta, a lot of fans are poking their toe back into the pool of interest for the Phils.

As they get ready to start a four-game series in St. Louis against the Cardinals, the 32-38 Phillies have pulled to within just five-games of first-place in National League East.

Do they have a run in them? Could this team take advantage of a struggling NL East?

KYW's Matt Leon and CBS3's Andy Wheeler discussed these topics in this week's podcast below.
