    The Philadelphia Phillies' 2007 season began with the Phillies approaching an historic mark. The Phillies started the year with an MLB-record 9,955 losses in franchise history.[1] On July 15, they lost their 10,000th game to the St. Louis Cardinals,[2] becoming the first professional sports team in modern history to achieve that milestone. The Phillies rallied in the closing days of the season, winning their final game against the Nationals. This win and the New York Mets loss to the Florida Marlins gave them the NL East title, making good on Jimmy Rollins's now famed "we're the team to beat" speech during spring training. They were swept in the opening round of the postseason by the Colorado Rockies.
