2010 Gameday

Gameday: Phillies (73-57) at Dodgers (67-64)

Philadelphia Phillies (73-57) at Los Angeles Dodgers (67-64)

Roy Halladay (16-10, 2.22 ERA) vs. 
Hiroki Kuroda (9-11, 3.56)

Time: 10:10 p.m at Dodger Stadium
TV: Comcast SportsNet
Weather: Mostly Sunny, 67
Twitter: @philliesnation

This is what sets 2010 apart for the Phillies.

Faced with a similar position the past two seasons – heading into a big road series in need of wins, the Phillies would have had one hot starting pitcher (Cole Hamels in 2008, Cliff Lee in 2009) and a grab bag (Brett Myers and Joe Blanton ’08, Hamels and Pedro Martinez in ’09) for the rest of the series.

But not this year. This is why they got Roy Halladay and then added Roy Oswalt. Not to slight Kyle Kendrick, a serviceable fifth starter, but with the ability to hand the ball to Halladay and Oswalt heading into a key series – whether it’s at Dodger Stadium or Yankee Stadium – you have to like the Phillies’ chances.

Tonight it’s Halladay’s turn, and if anyone can maintain the staff’s momentum after an overpowering series against the first-place Padres, it’s Halladay. He’s been so dominant since his Sunday night clunker against at Wrigley Field in mid-July, until last week it seemed he might not lose the rest of the season. But then a bloop single and the Phillies’ inability to score in the Astros series ended that bid (Amazing bonus stat: Halladay has failed to pitched at least seven innings only four times this season).

But no matter how well Halladay pitches, the offense has to score runs. And before their five-run “explosion” yesterday, the Phillies hadn’t scored that many runs in a week. The struggles of Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino from the left side of the plate – and from Ryan Howard and Chase Utley in general – are a major threat to the Phillies’ playoff hopes with each day they continue.

Your Gameday Beer – Philadelphia Original Lager

Philadelphia Original LagerBrewed by Red Bell Brewery out of the Brewerytown neighborhood of Philadelphia, this beer is a classic microbrew lager. It’s a bit heavier than Yuengling, with more of a roasted malt flavor and some sweet coffee and caramel hints. Its supreme drinkability coupled with a pour that looks like iced tea means you can sneakily house several of these bad boys. Have your favorite pasta with some marinara sauce and a few Philly Lagers. – By Brian

GO PHILLIES!

    Bold much?

    Haha, but seriously. I’m so glad this is a Halladay.

    I just really hope we can do something against Kuroda. Something like hasn’t allowed the Phils to have more than two hits the last couple times he’s faced us?

    Hoh boy.

    But there’s always Broxton at the end of the tunnel. Hehe. Let’s continue the sweep streak.

    Big game tonight. I envision a super solid performance from Halladay and hopefully one of our big guys make some noise. Let’s go Fightins!

  5. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    August 30, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    Well,looks like we will get no help from the gutless mutts………8-3 braves

  6. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    The Braves should take this game tonight, so y’all had better win, or you’re looking at a full 3 games back. It has to be getting frustrating looking at the Braves’ butts since May, don’t it?

  7. Lefty

    August 30, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    Not that it matters the Muts aren’t going to win, but Heyward looked out at the plate to me.

  8. Lefty

    August 30, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    Anyone see that catch by Lorenzo Cain? Spectacular!

  9. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    August 30, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    bravoman-we could be 3 back and we still are going to take care of the braves ourselves…………..

  10. Manny

    August 30, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    WHY IS TURNER FIELD SO FREAKING EMPTY?

    I think the Nats get more fans for their home games!

  11. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    August 30, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    you keep saying that we are fustrated and so on and so on,but really with all the injurys i am glad we are only 2- back……..

  12. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    August 30, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    MANNY-ITS LIKE THER FANS ALREADY KNOW WHATS GOING TO HAPPEN….LOL

  13. Manny

    August 30, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    Happ has pitched 8 full innings, only allowed 2 hits vs the Cards! Go Happ!

  14. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    August 30, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    GO HAPP!!!!!

  15. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    We’ve had injuries too. Not to the extent of the Phillies, I know, but I’ve counted 10 guys, all of them key players, have either hit the DL this year. Two are out for good… Chipper and Medlen.

  16. Jeff of Nova

    August 30, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    No way you can compare the Braves injuries to the Phillies

    Chipper is not a real lose anymore with the exception to the clubhouse maybe

  17. ChuckS

    August 30, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    I hope the phils can cruise to a nice easy win with Halladay on on the bump, 6:30 comes awfully early, I don’t need to get worked up.

    LETS GO PHILS

  18. Manny

    August 30, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    Happ now going for the CG shutout.

  19. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    ANDREW-Looks like i get to listen to old vin scully tonight!

  20. Manny

    August 30, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    Astros fans must be loving this trade …

  21. Manny

    August 30, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    A two-hitter CG shutout by Happ! Very nice! Most importantly, he beat a Wild Card team. 2 hrs and 1 minute.

  22. Desibrave

    August 30, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    Hello Denizens, Hope y’all doing ok.

    Hey Jay, Haven’ gotten a chance to check in here for the past few days.., Hope the series sweep against Pads cooled down Mr MikeD 🙂

    Braves taking care of themselves today, can’t’ take chances when Halladay is pitching.

  23. ChuckS

    August 30, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    hopefully we can have a 2 hour game as well

  24. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    August 30, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    LOL@DESIBRAVE-MIKE IS A WILD ONE……DONT KNOW IF HE IS BACK FROM VACATION YET!

  25. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    Chipper is a HOF player. Always dangerous.

  26. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    August 30, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    SCULLY JUST SAID JIMMY RONALDS BATTING LEADOFF…LOL

  27. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 10:14 pm

    Is this Braves fan for real. Chipper Jones was good ten years ago. Wasnt he going to retire this season. If the Braves lost Mccann for most of the year we can talk. They are playing the Mets.

  28. ChuckS

    August 30, 2010 at 10:14 pm

    Chipper is on the back nine of his career

  29. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:15 pm

    I tell you what, just seeing the opening day lineup is a good feeling, slumping or not.

  30. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    August 30, 2010 at 10:16 pm

    LOL SAID CHARLIE WAS BORN IN THE BACK OF A CAR….HE IS CRACKING ME UP!!

    god utley looks aweful this year.

  32. Desibrave

    August 30, 2010 at 10:16 pm

    Honestly guys, Phillies made a BIIIIIIIIIIG mistake in Trading away Happ. He has a future CY written all over him and he is someone you could control for 6 years,

  33. ChuckS

    August 30, 2010 at 10:16 pm

    you haven’t heard that before, Jay?

  34. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 10:17 pm

    Just think…. if y’all lose then you’ll be 3 games back again.

  35. ChuckS

    August 30, 2010 at 10:18 pm

    Happ wasn’t a mistake, it was a tough pill to swallow. The braves made a huge mistake in trading Yunel.

  36. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    Jeff, Chipper won the Batting Title 2 years ago. He was driving the ball a ton before his season ended on that play. Plus the fact he still has one the best eyes at the plate in MLB. Dude still takes a ton of walks and doesn’t strike out that much at all. YOU’RE the one who needs to get serious.

  37. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    August 30, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    YES CHUCK-BUT WHY IS HE BRINGING IT UP FIRST PITCH….LOL

  38. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    After watching all the games at Turner Field I am convinced that half of the Braves fans out there are on this blog

  40. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    Ryan Howard will have to hit 800 plus homers playing a mediocre at best first base to over take schmidt and his being the best offensive and defensive 3b of all tme.

    stop speaking to the feeble minded they are getting annoying. Desibrave has class and is ok.

  41. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    Chuck, please! Yunel was a cancer in the clubhouse and nearly got his 1st baseman’s arm decapitated on a lazy throw. His head was barely in the game, especially this year, and he wasn’t hitting his weight this year either. The mental errors with that guy was unbelievable. Don’t talk what you obviously don’t know. Plus, I’d much rather have a young lefty with a ton of upside like Happ than an aging Oswalt who is way more expensive. That’s common sense.

  42. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    yes 3 braves fans on here every night and 6 in the stands at turner field every night.
    Something doesnt add up

  43. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 10:24 pm

    come on 25 million dollar man. get that ball and pick it up big man.

  44. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 10:25 pm

    win something hickboy. you have not won anything. until you do shut your mouth.

  45. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    Better Doc, better

  46. Desibrave

    August 30, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    ChuckS, Yunel trade was perfect for Braves.. Yunel is another Milton Bradley, Carlos Zambrano in the making.. He is a horrible guy to have in the club house.

  47. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    I have class, just not to a Phillies or Mets fan.

  48. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    Jeff, y’all would love living in the south. I’d help you pick out a truck and might even have yuns meet the fam if y’all’er nice.

  49. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 10:29 pm

    why are brave fans here. this is a philliesnation board. I do not go to your hick sites.

    Howard has to knock that ball down.

  50. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 10:29 pm

    Roy Halladay is pigeon toed like a mutha f***. DAMN, boat feet too.

  51. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:29 pm

    Holy crap are you kidding

  52. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 10:30 pm

    I dont need to sleep with sister bravoman. Im sure you dont mind it. To bad I cant get you to meet my friend. DEXTER.

  53. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    Desi is ok. Have to ignore trouble makers who add nothing.

    Nice job by Werth

  54. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    Lets hope that was it. A 22 pitch inning for Roy a run and a walk. Just means we need some offense tonight.

  55. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    Shane Victorino looks like a rat… MAN he’s so ugly. I just want to slap him in that little skank face of his.

  56. bacardipr05

    August 30, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    Eek Hopefully Roy can shut them down from here…

  57. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    I enjoy being with my family members. A game the whole family can play

  58. Jeff of Nova

    August 30, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    Chipper was great, was having a okay year this year, don’t full yourself, if they lost Prado or McCann than they would be in bad shape.

    Bravo in all seriousness, do you have a life? a family? maybe a lady friend? Cause hangin out here talking about how great your mediocre team is playing, basically makes me think you are just jealous The Braves have 0 sites like this one!! Wait there would only be like 5 posts on there, nevermind what I said we will just agree that you are an idiot!

  59. ChuckS

    August 30, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    I kinda feel bad for the Braves fans out there

  60. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    3-1 count and swings at a ball out that far. this is whats wrong. darn ryan.

  61. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    He hit the ball hard at least.

  62. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 10:34 pm

    Jeff, seriously, I’d show you hillbilly, dude. You wouldn’t be saying that to my face. I’m sure of that. Anybody from Philidelphia shouldn’t be dissing another city or part of the country. It’s very well known the kind that rome those parts there in PA.

  63. Jeff of Nova

    August 30, 2010 at 10:36 pm

    ohh Bravo is going to starting getting his pickup and 2 shotguns and chase us all down

  64. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    chipper this year. .265 46 rbis 10 homers
    last season….264 71 rbis 18 homers

    Yea should of retired. LARRY LARRY LARRY

  65. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    I have no problem saying it to your face boy. Hey didnt I see you and your family on Springer

  66. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    Jeff, David O’Brien. He has the BEST baseball blog around. And yes, it’s a Braves blog. Google Dave O’Brien and check it out. I’m nagging y’all and typing with all my fellow Braves fans at the same time. You know, you can do that on the internet. Idiot! Also, Jeff Schultz and Mark Bradley also do pretty good blogs on the Braves too. This place has nothing on their’s.

  67. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    Really the regulars here. You know who you are. Ignore him. Or I am going to get offeded you are entertaining Forrest Mongoloid.
    Its pointless its what he wants.

    Guess we arent scoring runs tonight. 5 in the last game may tap us for awhile.

  68. BravoMan

    August 30, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    Oh, you’re probably a fat ass eating cheese steaks right now. Probably smell like grease and old beer. Shutup!

  69. Desibrave

    August 30, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    Hey Bravoman ! Looks like you should get a “Blogging for Dummies” book man. Watch what you write ! Scroll up and look at all the blogs posted today, yours posts simply stand out and are horrible to read.

  70. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    Are we looking at another “human” start for Doc?

    Need runs bad.

  71. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    scary night. they are wearing out doc. wow

  72. bacardipr05

    August 30, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    Oh Oh Roy not looking so sharp today…

  73. Marc

    August 30, 2010 at 10:42 pm

    Hey guys, this is my first post, but ive been reading them for a couple days. I think everyone should just ignore brvoman. hes never gonna shutup, and nobody cares what he has to say anyway. dont even respond to him.

  74. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:42 pm

    Seeing eye hits and bloops isnt human or wearing out.
    its bad luck

  75. ChuckS

    August 30, 2010 at 10:42 pm

    I hate Rod Barajas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  76. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:42 pm

    This does not look good at all.

  77. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:43 pm

    Really guys you watching these hits or just looking at game day?
    these arent hard hit balls.

  78. ChuckS

    August 30, 2010 at 10:43 pm

    I’ll take that

  79. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 10:43 pm

    Great job. Ok its two….Let Doc go into shut down mode.

  80. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 10:44 pm

    we just need to hit. howard did not help doc in that first.

  81. Jeff of Nova

    August 30, 2010 at 10:45 pm

    Okay going to take Andrew advice after my final comment here.

    Phillies Nation is a Blog yes and it is one of the best out there…Period!

    It is also a Phillies Phan Community! We set up trips support our team all over the country! Showing by the Braves attendance everywhere they go, you are not a community nor are you anything more than Sh1t talkers! The other sites that you mention sure are nice sites as is the one that some Nat fans made for them, not hard to do. Its the people that come to that make it what it is.

    Okay off my soap box All Braves suck it…. see you in Sept!

    Halladay needs to start throwing strikes, cause we are not going to hit Kuroda… we rarely do.

  82. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:45 pm

    0 for 44 for kuroda
    I wonder if i could get a hit in 44 ABs

    LOL
    He almost caught a seeing eye hit too. That would ahve been funny.

  83. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    August 30, 2010 at 10:46 pm

    LOT OF BLOOP HITS…..

  84. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:47 pm

    I am watching on Gameday – Direct TV here not the MLB package either.
    All I see are 4 hits so far, 2 runs and 36 pitches by Halladay so far.

  85. Desibrave

    August 30, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    Bravoman, You did speak truth about David O’Brien’s Blog, Probably the best one on planet earth.. There are an average 5 to 6K posts within an hour on that website everynight, and thats where all the Braves fans are 🙂

  86. ChuckS

    August 30, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    Is this the pitcher that threw over Shane’s head???

  87. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    Its funny there are more Phillies fans attending phillies games in san diego than there are braves fans in attendence for home games in atlanta.
    It really is shameful. Should move that team and Tampa and Florida.

    Move one to vegas one to tennessee and pick someplace for the third.

  88. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    so go there.

  90. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:49 pm

    Brooks these are all seeing eye and bloops believe me they arent hitting him hard at all.
    Hawards out is harder hit than any of thier hits.

  91. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 10:50 pm

    when is the last time we came up in the first inning and put up 3 or 4 runs.

  92. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    Jay
    I do not like solo booth either. But hes great and an institution.
    I wish theyd put someone in there with him. But I could NEVER think a negative thought about him.

  93. ChuckS

    August 30, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    9 up, 9 down, again

  94. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    Good to hear Andrew – thanks
    Sure would like it if the Phils were to get any kind of hits.

  95. Jeff of Nova

    August 30, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    We can send the Braves to where they play the midnight Classic in Alaska.. they get a sell out for their middle of the night daylight game

  96. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:52 pm

    no hits through 3 for the phils

  97. Desibrave

    August 30, 2010 at 10:53 pm

    Phillies gotta give some run support when Halladay is pitching.. He deserves much better fate, Wonder where Halladay ranks among lowest run support pitchers. I know Oswalt is there in the list.

  98. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:53 pm

    But its not a perfect game ChuckS 🙂
    Werth got hit then we got the classic phille style double play.

  99. Jeff of Nova

    August 30, 2010 at 10:53 pm

    Yeah Desi… that is the truth frustrating to see it time and time again.

  100. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:55 pm

    I actually have kuroda in fantasy
    but i am up 20 games and its the last week of the season so i dont even care. wish hed get shelled

  101. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:55 pm

    The offense seems sooo damn predictable anymore. Hitless through 5, maybe 6?
    Starting to burn here.

  102. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:57 pm

    Sorry, I meant to say lack of offense

  103. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:57 pm

    That Either hit was hard hit brooks right down third base line

  104. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:57 pm

    relatively hard hit

  105. Brooks

    August 30, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    I was just going to ask – thanks Andrew

  106. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 10:59 pm

    OK top of the order
    lets get a rally going before the 7th inning today

  107. ChuckS

    August 30, 2010 at 11:00 pm

    Jimmy is going to get this party started right now, the phils are going to score a crooked number, I can feel it

  108. Marc

    August 30, 2010 at 11:01 pm

    Stop responding to bravoman. Eventually he will go away. this is my first post, but i have been reading them for a couple days. He is a moron who probably doest know shit about baseball.

  109. ChuckS

    August 30, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    or maybe what I was feeling was gas

  110. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    Jimmy hit it hard at least

    I miss having a guy who takes walks hitting first.
    Like Ricky Henderson. But we get what we get

    utley hit that hard too

    Sinker pitchers and knuckeballers kill this lineup…. If I were teams in the WC or NL East race I would have them pitch one of them everytime….. even if they were a minor leaguer

  116. Manny

    August 30, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    Just put the ball in play! Geezzzzz

  117. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    you know with how this team has hit all year
    How good is the charachter and pitching and defense? For this team to be leading the wild card and close for the division?
    Its amazing and shows how they excell at the other aspects

  118. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 11:09 pm

  135. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 11:24 pm

    got lucky. they still hit the ball. all over the ballpark. luck or no luck they have hit…we have not

  136. jeff

    great catch werth. your right andrew. that was lucky too..how hard it was hit.

  137. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 11:27 pm

    The only decision Roy can get tonight is a loss. Nice job Phils O.

    Did someone forget to wake this team up tonight?

  166. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 11:46 pm

    I said it before all respect to Carlton (27 wins for a last place team). 2010 halladay is probably the best pitcher the phils ever had.

  167. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 11:47 pm

    no jay
    just a good solid double to left field line

  168. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 11:47 pm

    we have not hit most of the year. utley has been nowhere to be found. rollins, vic have been bad. this team gets into a team that can hit we might lose. the dodgers can hit

  169. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 11:48 pm

    why are the phils swinging at balls over thier head vs this guy?
    that makes 0 sense

    August 30, 2010 at 11:53 pm

    god the phillies will hate that contract on howard in the coming seasons.

  186. biz

    August 30, 2010 at 11:54 pm

    These guys should be ashamed of themselves. What happened to the team that used to fight and have heart?

    If we keep up with the offense we’ve had the last week we wont sniff the post season. We can’t even get a win with the best pitcher in baseball on the mound. How does a guy with a 2.22 ERA have 10 losses?

  187. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 11:54 pm

    yes a team thing but he is our big man. he is the man that makes all that money. he is an average fielder and look at these pitches he swings at. does he scare you or the pitcher. NO

  188. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    August 30, 2010 at 11:56 pm

    JEFF WE GET IT YOU HATE RYAN HOWARD!

  189. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 11:57 pm

    tonight is a disgrace
    Jeff to just make a point about howard. I agree 25 million is too much. But 20 million would be OK. Its not about contracts on the field though.
    so its nto that big a deal.

    Kurodas first hit of the year

  190. jeff

    August 30, 2010 at 11:57 pm

    Howard has, so far, been the fifth-least valuable first baseman in baseball, “costing” his team about $4 million. That means that if the Phillies had spent the money they paid Howard so far, minus $4 million, they could have found equivalent production on the free agent market.

    “The preeminent power hitter of our generation” is ahead of four other aging players awarded expensive free agent contracts or extensions. And over the rest of the 2010 season, Howard projects to be the third-least valuable first baseman behind Mark Teixeira and Todd Helton.

    It isn’t going to get better from here. Opposing managers are going to continue to utilize left-handed relief pitchers late in games to neutralize his bat, opposing pitchers will continue to throw him slop that breaks away, his bat speed will continue to wane, and as he ages he will become less mobile defensively and on the bases. If the chart above is depressing, then you better load up on the Prozac because Howard’s $125 million and declining production will begin to cripple the Phillies when it kicks in, starting in 2012.

  191. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 11:57 pm

    Look at the retarded La fans who would normally leave in the 7th

  195. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 30, 2010 at 11:59 pm

    terri you realize the pitcher was 0 for 44 coming inot that at bat also?
    now thats funny

  196. biz

    August 30, 2010 at 11:59 pm

    20 million, 25 million, who cares? It’s not your money and there’s no cap. You think the front office can’t afford it? Please. Howard has had a dozen or so bad games, but he’ll find it again. Chase? He hasn’t had it yet this season. I don’t think Chase is going to find it this year. That’s who concerns me.

  197. bacardipr05

    August 30, 2010 at 11:59 pm

    tHIS IS BAD…..I WOULD PULL ROY AFTER THIS INNING SAVE HIS ARM…A GOOD HUMAN GAME FOR ROY….ROY KEPT US IN THE GAME HE DID HIS JOB….NOT EVEN ONE HIT…WHAT HAPPEN TO FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT…..DAM GET A BUNT HIT…

  198. ChuckS

    August 31, 2010 at 12:00 am

    August 31, 2010 at 12:03 am

    Biz
    Like I said before other threads for this.
    But there is a budget and that 5 million is a good quality reliever.
    Cabrera is 20 million gonzalez is 20 million. Howard is probably not as good as either at 25.
    No its not my money but there is also a budget and you cant over pay too much. BTW I think all professional athletes are underpaid so dont tell me I am jealous. I am just saying it isnt unlimited.
    thanks Jeff
    for getting that started

    at least it wasn’t a perfecto

  211. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 31, 2010 at 12:06 am

    I know the contract well. Its about 20% too high.
    I personaly would like to have that 20% for some other players.
    But it is what it is.
    Like I said got 5 years to discuss it and I will be hoping he earns every penny of that contract.

  212. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 31, 2010 at 12:07 am

    jeff… seriously u need 2 chill wit the negativity… its not the end of the world… yes we all want 2 see the phils get a hit in every single at bat but thats not realistic… & everybody who slams wheels… stop… i agree he sounds lik an idiot sometimes but at the same time he rly knows the game & is a tribute 2 older times wen color analysts werent all former players… one of the few in the MLB who never played

  231. ChuckS

  234. biz

    August 31, 2010 at 12:21 am

    That was awesome. Frankly, I would have prefered Fransisco who can drive the ball. Sweeney has driven one ball since joining the team. That was yesterdays meaningless home run.

  235. Josh

    August 31, 2010 at 12:22 am

    screw you charlie. give the kid a chance instead of using up your bench. You have no idea how to use a bench period

  236. Andrew from Waldorf

    josh its simple lefty righty
    and sweeneys homer wasnt meaningless

    I more make fun of wheelers hair/dead squirrel than anything. Hes fun to goof on. I really dont try to be mean spirited about it.
    I am a follower of broadcasting and if he had a broadcasting voice I think id have a different opinion of him. For me its the biggest issue I have. How do you go 35 years as a broadcaster with no communications degree, never playing the game and no voice for broadcasting?

    10 losses with a 2.27 ERA. This offense is disgraceful.

    Just wait til we get Utley back.

    andrew… my wheeler comment wasnt targeted directly at jeff but more towards everyone in general… & i agree that he has some issues but give the guy a break… some ppl rly rag on him hard (i havent seen it as much lately but i used 2 see it a lot on here & tonight was reminiscent of those times)

    it doesn’t matter Brown can hit lefties. Charlie just has not given him the chance.

    and Rollins….. I can’t wait til we get our entire team off the DL.

    That’s where they are, right?

    biz… im startin 2 think utley & howard never came off… i mean their bodies did but their playin abilities r def still hurt… but on 2nd thought im thinkin utley jus never showed up this season cuz he wasnt doin spectacularly prior 2 his injury (in terms of norm utley production… i think… i dont remember exactly tho so i may b wrong)

    Me hes a bad broadcaster. That is what it is.
    Im not going to sugar coat it.
    But hes ours and you can goof on him and have fun with it.
    Hes not so bad (mccarver) that Id watch the other teams feed.
    He does have knowledge I will agree. Alot of the things I thnk he says and when I say things he says them after alot.
    Hes just a very polished broadcaster after 35 years.
    He also give bad chemistry. Mccarthy suffers from it and the old guys used to too. Hes hard for the other announcer to work with.

    me, Utley has not been Utley this season. He hasn’t been much better than Valdez. That’s the truth.

    3 games back.

  252. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 31, 2010 at 12:43 am

    1 hit
    I guess the season average of .256 went down?
    The Orioles and Cubs will continue to dominate us there.

    But… but… I thought once Howard,Utley and Rollins all started playing on the field together that they would “take over” the division? 3 games back and Atlanta is hungry!

    The Braves don’t exactly have what you would call a “potent” offense. Not really close. But, if they reach the playoffs, it’s all a crapshoot once you get there anyways and I like our pitching a lot, especially the pen.

    Bravoman, why don’t you talk shit when we win?

    get a hit at every bat? just a few here and there. this offense is the worst. cant get any worse then it is. if not for our pitching we would be in last. howie should give back some of that money this year. he is bad…..

  258. BravoMan

    August 31, 2010 at 12:52 am

    Hey Greg, I came on here yesterday when y’all beat SD. I’ve come on here when y’all have won other times too. That’s simply the frustration coming out from you. That’s all that is.

  259. BravoMan

    August 31, 2010 at 12:57 am

    What has happend to y’all’s offense this year? I can’t wrap my brain around any of that. I know baseball is a weird game and all, but that’s beyond strange. I honestly think there’s some inside stuff going on, maybe some turmoil within the clubhouse. Also if you don’t have a Utley or Howard at full strength then that can be a domino effect on the other guys. Rollins too. He’s the spark and now, nothing really sparking with him. Maybe it’s not so strange.
