PHILADELPHIA—No team enters this postseason under more pressure than the Philadelphia Phillies.
Expectations are so high in the City of Brotherly Love that anything less than a World Series title will be considered a failure by fans, players and management.
Yes, it's boom or bust for these Phillies, who are a long way removed from being known for losing more games than any franchise in professional sports.
"Our main goal is to get to the World Series and win it," pitcher Roy Oswalt said.
Their road begins Saturday against the wild-card St. Louis Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park.
