First the pitching went down the toilet. Then the hitting went down the toilet. So now, they have to both get it together, right?
Hopefully the Phillies can avoid the sweep as they take on the Nationals for the season’s first Business Person’s Special. The ageless Jamie Moyer will trot out to begin his 23rd Major League season. He’ll face Jason Bergmann, who will begin his fourth.
And today the Phillies will sport their new, alternate uniforms. Should be a nice sight.
Phillies: Jamie Moyer (0-0), 0.00 ERA
Nationals: Jason Bergmann (0-0), 0.00 ERA
Gametime: 1:05 p.m.
Weather: 52 degrees, partly cloudy
Your gameday beer: Jamie Moyer, 45, is the oldest player in Major League Baseball. As he begins his 23rd season, we look back at his humble beginnings in Chicago and celebrate him with an Old Style Beer. It’s a bit classier than your regular Bud, and it actually goes down smoother than most other macro brews. Drink yours â€” you can get it in Reading â€” with a nice grilled sausage.
