PHILADELPHIA -- Marlins shortstop Jose Reyes has seen the Phillies storm back before. In 2007, then an All-Star shortstop with New York, Reyes watched the Phils overcome a seven-game deficit with 17 games left to beat out the Mets for the National League East title on the last day of the season.
That is why, with the Phillies charging back to make things a little more interesting in the NL Wild Card race this year, Reyes isn't exactly surprised.
"Nothing surprises me, because I've been through the same situation," Reyes said before Tuesday's game against the Phillies. "I don't count them out, at all. Because the pitching staff that they have, it's not easy to face those guys."
Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen echoed similar sentiments.
"People ask me about it: 'Are you surprised?' No," Guillen said. "I'm surprised they're not in. But I think they're coming back, and if they hold on, with their pitching staff, they're gonna have a chance."
