    I know it is his first game and all, but would it not be better for Dom to bat in front of the good hitters, so that he would have a better chance of seeing fastballs, why not bat him second, I am not saying they are going to pitch around the kid in his first game, but with Raul heating up and Ryan on a tear, you would think they would have to throw strikes to Dom in the 2 hole. I know you do not want to put pressure on the kid but isn’t batting 6th just as much pressure, and having Chooch and Wilson Valdez batting behind you that would allow their pitcher to see if the Kid will chase balls out of the strike zone.
    This team is going to need JRoll back sooner than later, he needs to play after these two games against the snakes. It is the Nationals right, he needs to play in that series even if he is not 100%, it is not like he is going to cause any more damage to the toe, it is not like a pulled muscle, I know it hurts and he might lose some range. And most of you do not think he is a lead off guy, but he is our lead off guy.
    Good luck tonight Dom how about you hit a dinger in your first at bat that would be cool

    I have picked him up in fantasy.
    Is starting tomorrow.
    Re: the nationals
    No shot the jeopardize Strassburg we wont see him this weekend. But on the down side I bet they shut him down for the year.

    D. Brown is the only phillie I have. People over value the phils in the fantasy drafts.

    D Brown is the man

  7. Manny

    Domonic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. ChuckS

    July 28, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    Phillies Nation is getting Dom-onated

  9. Jeff

    July 28, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    this site is terrible. d. brown is awesome. shame on ruin jr to wait this long to bring him up. could of provided a spark. still working on the oswalt deal. happ is better. here we go to give away the farm unless he has five teams involved like starks said. please no lilly.

  10. nick

    July 28, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    Dom brown looks great he could really help keep this offense rolling I like him batting 6th too

  11. Pat Gallen

    July 28, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    ChuckS- the Fightin’s are dealing with it too. It sucks but we’re working hard.

  12. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    whoever is the server for this site they should be pistol whipped

    D Brown isnt going back down ever.
    Hes here
    gonna be tough to not play him vs righties.

    Ruiz is so clutch

  13. robnewjersey

    July 28, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    What a night

  14. Jeff

    July 28, 2010 at 9:06 pm

    I read your post about Lilly Pat. You mentioned an upgrade over Happ. I hope you do not mean trading Happ in that deal. NO WAY would the PHILLIES DO THAT. Ruin Jr. is not that stupid. To give up a guy like Happ for a rent a player. Lilly is a free agent.

  15. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    Lilly has very good stuff and going from a perenial loser to a winner would do him very good.
    Id trade Happ for him.

  16. Jeff

    July 28, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    Doc is just plain nasty…Just a hall of fame pitcher.

  17. ChuckS

    July 28, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    Roy is just to good

  18. Jeff

    July 28, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    you would trade happ for a player that will be here for two months. are you nuts. happ is not going for lilly. oswalt yes.

  19. Jeff

    July 28, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    doc is performing surgery.

  20. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    Best pitcher the Phils ever had. Right there with Lefty

    I dont like the amount of innings
    Hes on pace for career high
    need to take out when you can.

  21. Jeff

    July 28, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    your right andrew but do you trust baez with a five run lead. or ledge

  22. David B

    July 28, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    i’ve been lurking on this site (when it’s UP – sheesh oh man) and love the chatter. in honor of D Brown’s super awesome debut so far i decided to get in to the mix! love chooch – super clutch, what a great at bat, so glad polly didn’t strand him on third…. when j roll is back and shane, does that mean we can bench valdez?!? he is worse than useless at the plate.

  23. robnewjersey

    July 28, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    shut the F up guys — enjoy the game — Oswalt? Happ? come on guys — have a beer and enjoy this.

  24. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Philly fans highly over rate Happs value. I know its what fans do.
    What do you guys see Happ as? Hes 27 and has 14 career wins.
    I love him and am not really disrespecting him. More saying some fans really think hes worth more than he is. Hes Bob Walk.

  25. robnewjersey

    July 28, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    dont like beer.

  26. jeff

    July 28, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    not overrating happ. happ is a nice pitcher with some bad luck with injuries. pitched great last year. your going to give him away for an average lilly. for two months.

  27. riccaboni

    July 28, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    So Roy now leads the league in K’s and is in second in ERA, inching really close to the lead in WHIP as well. Is he officially back in the CY discussion?

  28. Psujoe

    July 28, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    No way happ for Lilly unless Lilly agreed to an extension. You trade happ for Lilly you need 2 starters next year. Happ only goes for a pitcher with 2+ years on his contract.

  29. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    Id take lilly for a few years. Hes really good really good stuff

    LOL @ ledge

    somehow I never thoguht of that before

  30. David B

    July 28, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    loving ibanez right now

  31. Mostone

    July 28, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    What a fun game to be watching!

  32. ChuckS

    July 28, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    Cy Halladay

  33. robnewjersey

    July 28, 2010 at 9:20 pm

    last post was not me — whoever you are — grow up

  34. Psujoe

    July 28, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    Jeff,

    The site is great, the hosting company is terrible. They are correcting that, hopefully soon.

  35. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    Halladay was ever out of the Cy Young convo?

    He may be leading I think Wainwright had a bad outing and the Colorado dude is really coming back to reality

  36. Pat Gallen

    July 28, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    Jeff, I said Lilly would be a very slight upgrade. And maybe not even that. Happ would probably be better in the long run because he’s cheaper.

  37. ChuckS

    July 28, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    Jayson Werth is on fire

  38. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    It is fun warching the phils lately

    But all this talk of Juan Bell. He made Steve Jeltz look like Babe Ruth

  39. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    Yea when they make the site better hopefully
    we can have a name and others cant use it

  40. ChuckS

    July 28, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    Dom Brown is the man

  41. riccaboni

    July 28, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    Josh Johnson has always been tops in the Cy Young race, IMO, but now that Halladay leads in K’s, has more innings, CGs, SHOs, his WHIP and ERA are inching closer to Johnson, etc. Ubaldo, I never thought he really had a chance because other than wins, he really wasn’t tops in any of the other categories.

  42. ChuckS

    July 28, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    Halladay have a leash tonight?

  43. TT

    July 28, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    Dom Brown is the best addition we could have made. Watch out Atlanta! Can’t wait to hit up the game tomorrow and watch the Phillies mash!

    Are they selling #9 jerseys yet?

  44. jeff

    July 28, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    you like the ledge..lol. I was just saying I would not mind having Lilly but not for Happ. No way.

  45. robnewjersey

    July 28, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    “TT” love yah — NUMBER 9

  46. jeff

    July 28, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Double, Single, Sac fly 2 rbis, 2 runs. Not to bad for your first game. LOL

  47. jeff

    July 28, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    CHOOOOCH IS BACK..WOW

  48. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Ok now why not take Roy out now?
    Just saying

  49. BostonKate

    July 28, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    This is such an awesome game. I envy everyone there right now.

  50. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    Ruiz is my favorite player by about 100 miles

  51. jeff

    July 28, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    Bout time we get the good doctor some runs. If we did this all the time he would be 16-3

  52. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 9:34 pm

    I dont really want Doc to go the whole way.
    But he knows his body I guess. This isnt a Kerry wood Prior situation. I hope

  53. ChuckS

    July 28, 2010 at 9:34 pm

    Wonder if Oswalt is thinking how great it could be playing in philly?

  54. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    Derek Lee rejected a trade today. Kinda like Delgado that time.
    some players dont care abotu winning.
    although Ive always heard Lee is a great clubhouse guy. Delgado is a cancer.

  55. HighwayFlower

    July 28, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    So he does live up to the hype!!

  56. Manny

    July 28, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    Alright Cholly take the Doc out.. we’re up by 7. Send whoever to pitch the 9th. Give the Doc some well-deserved rest. 104 pitches is enough every once in a while… we’re gonna need him to be in top form for all those intra-division games in September.

  57. Kate

    July 28, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    I think Doc can go the whole way, get himself another win and a complete game shut-out.

    Ibanez/Werth/Brown/Ruiz is tonight’s version of last night’s Polanco/Howard/Werth/Ibanez.

    Fun times all around.

    If we get half the fun tomorrow night when I’m there in person, I’ll be a very happy camper for my inaugural trip to the Bank.

  58. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    Its official
    the phils are back finally

    I guess Greg Gross must have some mighty powerful binochulars

  59. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    Too bad this site isnt functioning what a great night.

  60. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 28, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    charlie said he didnt ask Roy or even consider taking him out.
    As long as they win

  61. The Dipsy

    July 28, 2010 at 10:43 pm

    Is it me or does Brown have a tremendous loop in his swing? Another twenty pounds and he’ll be built exactly like the sweetest swinging lefty of the last 25 years: Darryl Strawberry.

    The Dipsy
