(This post made while watching the Phillies-Mariners series finale)
So what's the deal with the Phillies offense? They're hot during their recent homestand and through 2 games and 6 innings against the Mariners they have scored three runs. With Oakland next up, maybe it's a good time for this team to realize that not every game can be won on homeruns. It's time to start honing the art of manufacturing runs.
The new "Woohoo" guy is in Seattle. Those poor Mariner fans.
Randy Wolf is out and Padilla has yet to show consistency. Ed Wade needs to make a move of some sort.
Watching Jim Thome this year reminds me of watching Pat Burell last year. Hopefully Thome gets out of his funk a lot sooner.
Chris Wheeler = the kid who never shuts up in high school.
Chase Utley is the most pure ballplayer the Phills have and the most heart of anyone.
Jimmy Rollins signs a five year extension, and in the press conference he states that he'd like to finish his career on the west coast. Not the brightest of moves.
Even when I agree with Wheeler, he still annoys me.
Is anyone watching the NBA Finals? Does anyone care?
Brett Myers has given up one run in 6 innings. I guess it was time to take him out of the game?
Kenny Loften. I thought he came to town about five years too late. He's giving me much more than I could have hoped for and he should be leading off everyday, if not Bobby Abreu.
Go figure. The Phillies finally find a way to score 2 runs and they give it right back. Myers must be frustrated.
Did anyone watch the NBA Finals? Yeah, me neither.
Extra innings. Yay. There's nothing I love more than late night interleague baseball. Note the sarcasm.
Thirteen innings? C'mon! I want to go to bed!
Jimmy Rollins can hustle. A triple gives him his fifth hit of the game!
Why do the Phillies still wear those stupid looking "interleague" hats? Does any other team have a separate "interleague" hat? It's all a marketing ploy obviously.
Thank you Billy Wagner for finally ending this game at two in the morning on the east coast. Phills win 3-2 in 13 innings. Great game and good win, but I'm tired!
Good night folks!
