Gamenight: Nationals (4-15) At Phillies (11-8)

nationalslogoWashington Nationals (4-15) at Philadelphia Phillies (11-8)
Scott Olsen (0-3, 7.29 ERA) vs. Brett Myers (1-1, 4.91 ERA)

Time: 7:05 p.m. at Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia.
Weather: Partly sunny, 57
TV: MyPhl 17
Twitter: Phillies Nation

The Phillies will try and make it two consecutive sweeps as they meet the Nationals tonight. Brett Myers faces off against Scott Olsen.

We know Olsen, who had a checkered past as Marlins pitcher-cum-antagonizer. He’s had trouble against the Phillies, as our boys have hit him at a .290 clip. The best? Ryan Howard (.458, 2 HR) and Jayson Werth (.462, 2 HR). Chase Utley (.167) and Shane Victorino (.125)? Not so much. Overall, Olsen is 4-5 with a 5.33 ERA against the Phils. Oh, and he seems to hate them, too.

Myers is coming off a better start against the Marlins. He surrendered a three-run blastoff to Dan Uggla but settled down in a Phils comeback win. Home runs continue to plague Myers, as eight longballs have left the park after leaving his right hand. Five Nationals have hit homers off Myers, including the always tough Ryan Zimmerman and Adam Dunn. If he doesn’t give up longballs, chances are Myers will have a sparkling outing. The last time he faced Washington he was dominant, pitching a complete-game shutout against them Aug. 20, 2008 at Citizens Bank Park. A repeat of that would surely help the bullpen, who did get aid from fellow member Chad Durbin, who threw a fine 3.2 innings of relief yesterday.

Your gamenight beer: It’s a little colder tonight, so let’s get back to the darker stuff while there’s still time. Tonight’s offering is from Harpoon, and it’s Harpoon Munich Type Dark Beer. It’s your typical brown ale: Hoppy, malty, roasted. Toffee-like. Coffee-like. A nice beer to have on a cool night, and definitely fitting with some ribs.

Go Phillies!

    IBOMBEZ will have another homerun tonight, and the phillies will win 8 to 4

    If you listen really hard, you can hear the sound of a million Mets fans jumping off the bandwagon.

    The past few days have really toyed with my emotions as a fan. Do you root against the team standing in your way of first place or do you root for the Mets to lose no matter who they’re playing?

    Bruce, we just swept the floor with the marlins, i’m not worried and i won’t be unless they are 10 games ahead with 10 to go, they’ve already proven they are streaky and have extremely suspect defense and bullpen

    Chase Mutley – I thought it was me. I listened to XM on my way home, and I thought about it hard, but I rooted for the Fish. I just cannot bring myself to root for the Mets. Let the Fish and Phillies duke it out later. I cannot hate the Fish, but I refuse to root for the Mets.

  22. Doug

    April 29, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    Hey Milt Thompson, Tell your boys to keep the bat on there shoulders. You dont have to swing at the junk this horrible pitcher is throwing. He will walk you or come in with a fast ball. My mother could hit him.

  23. Matt

    April 29, 2009 at 7:34 pm

    not to be negative at all, but I can’t remember a worse hitter than Chris Coste. I honestly would rather just put Coste in the minors, and have Marson start. Both are equally as talented behind the plate, but standing next to it, Coste shows 0 potential at hitting the ball, 0 signs of being able to read the pitcher, and 0 confidence with his swing.
    Man I miss Ruiz.

  24. Doug

    April 29, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    this is what gets me with brett. anderson hits the phillies like crazy but you have to strike out the pitcher there. throw the ball down the middle man…

  25. Matt

    April 29, 2009 at 7:40 pm

    completely agree. Why even put yourself in a 3-1 hole. Make the pitcher hit the ball. Show confidence in your pitches. YOURE A BIG LEAGUE PITCHER! You’re not supposed struggle against pitchers.

  26. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 7:41 pm

    Matt, I was just about to defend Coste, but then he dropped it. I seriously like Coste, and he is an OK catcher, but not much on the bat. By far though the most underappreciated person though is Feliz

  27. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 7:42 pm

    Isn’t Brett supposed to do this in the first then get better?

    Damn brett. this is why i would not resign you next season. you suck

  33. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 7:44 pm

    I say we walk Dunn and just give them the 2-1 lead versus the Dunn alternative

  34. Manny

    April 29, 2009 at 7:45 pm

    Chill peeps… let’s see what he does against Dunn

  35. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 7:45 pm

    That was a generous strike; a good one though, but a mercy strike

  36. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 7:46 pm

    My heart started beating again

  37. Matt

    April 29, 2009 at 7:47 pm

    that was 8 balls and 1 strike the last 2 batters. I have 0 confidence in brett going past 5, maybe 6 innings at best. Looks like our bullpen’s gonna have to save us again

  38. Doug

    April 29, 2009 at 7:47 pm

    Brett just gets wild. First off there is no reason to walk Olsen. I mean throw a strike down the middle and let him try and hit it. Then the flood gates open with walks.

  39. Matt

    April 29, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    I just don’t understand Myers’s mentality. You have to be on the mound, knowing that you cannot dig yourself into a 2-1, or 2-0 hole. First pitch strikes are key for this guy. Use your fastball to get ahead of the count, then maybe get a little saucy. But you cannot expect to get the nationals, who lead the league in pitches taken, to swing continuously at 2-0, or 2-1 pitches. It just won’t happen.

  40. Manny

    April 29, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    These Nats broadcasters are major douchebags. They are suggesting Lannan hit Utley next time he sees him (to keep him off the plate). Wow.

  41. BurrGundy

    April 29, 2009 at 7:51 pm

    I hope the Phils do not sign Brett Myers. He does not deserve $12 million a year and we can do a lot better for the money. The guy , as a pitcher, pisses me off.

  42. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 7:51 pm

    For those who are stuck on Extra Innings or Direct TV Feed with the Nats announcers, they are bromancing Utley tonight. They say they need to walk or hit Utley just to get him out of the way. Apparently they fear Vic and Utley. Glad to see Jimmy having a good at bat. Regardless of the outcome…

  43. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    Manny, After listening to Rob Dibble all winter I actually understood what he meant; he was not saying to injure him, he means to get him out of the way. We all know Chase will take one then steal the bag… I do not defend others much, but Dibble is not like that…

  44. Manny

    April 29, 2009 at 7:56 pm

    You shouldn’t endorse hitting a player no matter the circumstances, especially if you’re a TV broadcaster!

    Sounds very unprofessional, in my opinion.

  45. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 7:56 pm

    Ok, let’s see what Bret does now

  46. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 7:57 pm

    Manny,

    I agree on that note. I remember last year when LA said someone should stick one in [Jose Reyes’] neck for waving and running slowly and the Mets fans were angry. I love LA and I understood what he meant, just like Dibble, but I do see your point.

  47. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 7:59 pm

    Gosh I would love to hear HK [RIP]. I am about to hook up the XM and sync it with the TV to hear Larry and Scott. Dibbs and Carpenter are now talking about the Mets.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhh heart skipped again

  48. Manny

    April 29, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    I remember people on this blog saying in September that Brett was our ace (not Hamels) … just give the guy some time. He is very good and he’s still relatively young. He can be lights out every now and then.

  49. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    I think we should sign Myers.

  50. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    Manny – see bromance w/Chase too…

  51. Manny

    April 29, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    Phillies Phan SC…they’re definitely all over Utley tonight.. haha

  52. Matt

    April 29, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    Manny with all due respect I agree with your post, but an ace can’t be good every now and then. An ace should be confident, like what Cole looked like last night. For me, it’s whenever Brett walks a batter, or gives up a base hit, his head starts shaking, and it seems to me that he just doesn’t believe what just happened.
    Cole, and any other ace shakes that off, and comes back strong with the next pitch and goes from there.

    Brett has that potential, and has shown it, but how many times must we keep saying, “When is it going to come?”

  53. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    I think we should sign Brett again, but cost based on his performance

  54. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:05 pm

    Manny – If Howard knocks one out they will be sending him candy in the morning too; it is a shame they speak higher of our guys than their own.

  55. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:06 pm

    Nats Zimmerman is good now. Glad Howard beat it though

  56. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:07 pm

    Wow, look at Howard

  57. Manny

    April 29, 2009 at 8:08 pm

    I agree Matt… All I’m saying is that we often don’t appreciate Myers whenever he’s not going 8-9 innings and shutting down the other team. For example, now.. he’s been our best pitcher this season… and the minute he messes up in an inning (like in the 3rd, by walking a bunch of people), we say he sucks and he’s not worth it.

  58. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    Manny, I am with you on this one. I gave up on Meyers last year and he proved me wrong. Hence why I will never give up on him again because he WANTS to do well….

  66. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:17 pm

    Matt – you were right, but he was close on the one…

  67. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:17 pm

    Yes he is; not sure Ruiz could have done it either though

  68. Doug

    April 29, 2009 at 8:18 pm

    this just in….Chris Coste Sucks…

  69. Matt

    April 29, 2009 at 8:18 pm

    it was a hell of a play though
    I’d rather see that than what occurred on his last AB

  70. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:19 pm

    Manny, the Nats need new commercials. Last night Tex was a Brave and tonight they say “Yes, the Mets are no longer in first…” Perhaps they could find some money for new commercials.

  71. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:20 pm

    Matt – true. Was not knocking you my friend, I was trying to be optimistic.

  72. Doug

    April 29, 2009 at 8:20 pm

    Question. I live in bordentown nj. I have comcast. I get all the channels for the Phillies. CSN, PH 17, Channel 8. If I get direct tv and order the baseball package someone told me it will be blacked out…is that true?

  73. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 8:21 pm

    when I think of Coste I think of the game against the Mets “That’s gonna win it for the Phils! What a comeback! Say hello to first place!” or something like that.

  74. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:22 pm

    Doug, It is possible. I live in SC and whenever the Phillies play the Braves it is blacked out. I am glad I hate the Braves because they black the games uot on MLB Extra Innings THEN don’t televise them on FSN or TBS. Braves suck. I do not know about there though

  75. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:23 pm

    Coste’s book was great though. I am glad he was a part of the 2008 team. Likeable guy, but not Ruiz.

  76. Matt

    April 29, 2009 at 8:24 pm

    no “knocking” received. I was the pessimistic one originally, I was at least trying to give him credit for a solid-connect and a quality AB

    And at least we had a good amount of baserunners that inning. To me that’s just as encouraging as what Brett is showing as of recent.

  77. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    Manny I was wondering how you were so quick and I realized I paused my DVR abuot 30 minutes ago for 30 seconds… I thought you had ESP for something…

  78. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    I was losing my mind… Matt, I like Coste, so perhaps I am biased, but he is no Ruiz!

    0 2 you cant try to sneak a fastball by this guy, I usually dont mico manage comment like this but i am stuck at work, dvring the game and watching stick figures on mlb.com for fun but really bored. But in reality 3 runs in 6 innings is not terrible, the 3 walks bothers me, but it is a long season it would be nice to see Phils get some runs here get a lead and send him back out there though I know that is doubtful especially after 109 pitches

    April 29, 2009 at 9:05 pm

    How about a Pedro jack here that would be nice,

    BTW, just came on but to make a comment to about Dibble’s comments, he is not talking about hurting Utley just getting him off the plate. Pitchers today are afraid to throw in on guys these days cause they think that if the hit them they will end up in the locker room. What he is saying makes complete sense for a team that has no leadership from the pitching part and needs someone to show them how to not be afraid of hitters. Long season for Nats.

    Go Phils

    Keith,

    Did you see/hear the Cubs play today? I am not so sure

  128. Grrrumpy Miner

    April 29, 2009 at 9:29 pm

    Gee doug,Got to applaud you in what METS stand for….oh how original and been used for what 48 Years? Find something new.Don’t worry Phils fans,I am still here in support of my Amazins,and NO I didn’t or will I abandon ship.The mets have not stepped up and are showing a bunch of fear to the Marlins.The only way the Mets are going to defeat the Anchovies or anyone else is not only show up and play but grow a heart and have the heart to play ball,Mets are on their way to Philly and I’m quaking in my boots.

  129. Phan in TN

    Glad to see Mister Miner is still standing true.

  130. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 9:32 pm

    I thought it was funny.

  131. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 9:34 pm

    Grrrumpy Miner is probably one of the very few Mets fans I respect and like. Why would the Phillies walk Flores?

  132. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 9:36 pm

    yikes

  133. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 9:38 pm

    can we start the season over again? it works with my PSP game.

  135. Travis

    April 29, 2009 at 9:39 pm

    We should not have walked Flores Intentionally. It hurts us. now its a 3run defecit. 4-1 Nats. So far in division as of right now:

    Marlins 13-8
    Phillies 11-8 (Currently trailing Nats at home 4-1 top 8)
    Braves 10-10 (Currently trailing cards 5-3 at home bot 8)
    Mets 9-12
    Nationals 4-15 (Currently leading at Phillies 4-1 top 8)

    Taschner now walks kearns. Bases loaded and 2outs for cristian guzman. This could be the game here folks. Guzman flies out.

  136. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 9:40 pm

    why would we start over? we’re 11-8

    That one did not work either. Hey this game sucks, now we are teaching each other emotticons; not a good sign of the game!

  155. Manny

    Key word was could and unfortunately is wasn’t hope they can pull out another miracle in the ninth.

    I had to google the codes – I only can build computers I know nothing about emoticons though. I am weird…

  168. Keith

  169. Keith

  170. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 10:02 pm

    Go Philllies; I am trying to find a NICE hotel for my wife and I in October. I grew up in Bucks, and that Stadium Holiday Inn is kind of scary.

  171. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 10:03 pm

    I am going to be happy to see the Nats go

  172. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 10:04 pm

  173. Keith

  174. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 10:05 pm

    Phillies of course

  175. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    Keith, yeah, but not without taking a roll of Tums

  176. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    yea I was just thinking of when Charlie Manuel said that in October.

  177. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 10:08 pm

    okay so

    Coste-HBP
    Dobbs-1B

  181. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 10:12 pm

    Perhaps, just perhaps

  182. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 10:12 pm

    oh well, we finish April 11-9

  183. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    but Cairo does suck and needs to go cuz he’s useless. Can’t wait for Romero to return so Taschner can go.

  184. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    WHHHEEEEWWWWWW

  185. Manny

    April 29, 2009 at 10:14 pm

  186. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 10:15 pm

    yea Rollins is starting to hit, that’s a great sign.

    give Rollins a 8)

  187. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 10:15 pm

    question is can Victorino get on?

  188. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 10:16 pm

    šŸ˜€ Yes, but I still hate emoticons

  189. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 10:16 pm

  190. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 10:17 pm

    Oh well, off to bed. See you all Friday for the good games…

  191. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 10:18 pm

    Keith, should have been an E-6, but we’ll take the Hit… I’ll post tomorrow, but talk to you all Friday! This is fun now that we have our Support Group LOL

  192. Keith

    April 29, 2009 at 10:18 pm

    this game proves that scoring first kinda blows if u never score again

  193. Chase Mutley

    April 29, 2009 at 10:19 pm

    Someone should probably remind Julian Tavarez that he’s a 90 year old journeyman on the worst team in baseball before he hot dogs at a batter in his next save.

  194. Phillies Phan SC

    April 29, 2009 at 10:19 pm

    We pulled a Mets – score early and not often… Night all!
