2010 Gameday

Gameday: Phillies (94-64) at Nationals (68-90)

Philadelphia Phillies (94-64) at Washington Nationals (68-90)

NationalsJoe Blanton (8-6, 4.94 ERA) vs. Ross Detwiler (1-2, 2.52)

Time: 7:05, Nationals Park
Weather:
Rainy, 66
TV: CSN
Follow Phillies Nation on Twitter

Nationals Park is where it all began this season, where the division was won, and, tonight, the Phillies will say goodbye to Washington until next spring. That is, if the rain holds off.

With home-field advantage throughout the playoffs sewn up, the Phillies can afford to take their ease a little bit, as Charlie Manuel proved last night. Last night, Adam Dunn’s walk-off homer helped the Nats to a 2-1 victory over the Phillies’ reserve squad. Tonight is no different, as the Phillies make seven changes from their Opening Day lineup. John Mayberry gets his first start of the year, and Hero of the People Wilson Valdez returns to the lineup in relief of Chase Utley.

That patchwork squad will face lefthander Ross Detwiler, a 24-year-old making his 19th career major league start. Detwiler was picked 6th overall in 2007. In recent years, the Nats have done well drafting pitchers in the high rounds, netting Stephen Strasburg, Drew Storen, Chad Cordero, and Jordan Zimmermann in recent years. Detwiler has not been so fortunate, struggling with his control this year. At his best, he’s a finesse lefty in the Cole Hamels mold, mixing in a decent fastball with a change-up for an out pitch, but so far, despite a nearly-even K/BB ratio, Detwiler’s gotten away with it, posting a 2.52 ERA in 25 innings. Pay attention to this guy, because when the Nationals finally put it together in a couple years, Detwiler could be one of their good young arms, along with Zimmermann and Strasburg.

There’s not a whole lot else to say about tonight’s game. Hardly anything is on the line, so sit back, relax, and be glad you’re not out there in that rain.

Today’s lineup: Rollins SS, Valdez 2B, Victorino CF, Sweeney 1B, Francisco LF, Mayberry RF, Dobbs 3B, Hoover C, Blanton P

Today is the 60th birthday of Milwaukee Brewers owner Ken Macha, and in his honor, we’ll give you a seasonal beer from the best of the Milwaukee brewers, Jacob Leinenkugel. Leinenkugel’s Oktoberfest is not as highly-touted as, say Sam Adams, but it’s a malty beer that makes you think of football, terrible weather, and pumpkin pie. Enjoy. -Michael Baumann

    HEY BRAVOMAN(BECAUSE I KNOW YOU WILL SHOW UP)-Big game in the ATL this afternoon with huge “playoff” implications (Marlins@Braves) and lots of empty seats in attendance.

    FOXSPORTS HAS THIS AS YOUR NUMBER 1 WORLD SERIES MATCHUP-1. Phillies-Yankees

    The hook: Goliath vs. Goliath

    Lots of spicy notes to this one … A rematch of last year’s World Series, East-Coast intensity/obnoxiousness, top payroll against fourth-highest payroll, and the two teams generally regarded as the best in their leagues. If you believe the World Series should truly be a clash of titans, then this should be your preferred match-up. And how does a possible Halladay-Sabathia faceoff in Game 7 sound?

    I just dont think the Spankees make it.
    That the braveless are gonna back in means we draw the Reds in series one? rather them then facing lincecum 2 times in a 5 game series.

    The Washington Nationals may be saying goodbye to Adam Dunn shortly. They need this guy, who is one of the most prolific power hitters in all of baseball over the past eight years. He killed us last night with both RBIs. I hope Sweeney gets some hits and it really is good to see the reserves get some playing time.

    I feel very sad for Bravoman — a lonely voice rooting for a solid team in a big city that simply does not care one iota about its team. Sad.

  9. Andrew from waldorf

    September 29, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    Dunn is very good. No idea why they grooved one to him last night. But I guess we didnt want extra innings anyway.

    If Baumann’s projected line-up is accurate, it’s the ultimate B squad that’s playing tonight. 😉 No Polanco, Utley, Howard, Ibanez, Ruiz or Werth. Although if there is a RISP, I won’t miss Werth (chuckles).

  12. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    September 29, 2010 at 5:52 pm

    Polanco got a cortisone injection into his left elbow. Could play as early as Friday.

    Y’all are obsessed with the Braves’ attendance. Who cares? They had a packed house last night and today’s game is quirky 4:30 game in the middle of the week. I know, I know ….your stadium would be sold out, no matter the time or day of the week, but this is Atlanta. I personally don’t care, as long as they get in the playoffs. Fans will be showing up this weekend. It’ll be packed.

    Back in ’91 when that run started, you couldn’t go anywhere in the south without somebody having a Braves hat or shirt on. It was crazy. That lasted for a while and now they’re trying to get all that back.

  14. BravoMan

    September 29, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    Andrew, go ahead and admit your projection about the Braves missing the playoffs were wrong, or at least they look to be. You probably won’t, but you should since you went on and on about how we were/are a joke and all.

    The Braves are coming. They might not go far in the playoffs this time, but they’re coming full force starting next year. Everything looks good except the offense, but that can be fixed with a signing/trade for a OF or two. The all around pitching is solid for a long while.

    BREAKING NEWS(SORT OF)-looks like Roy Oswalt for Game 2 http://bit.ly/dvrWAE

  16. Andrew from waldorf

    September 29, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    Sad that there are more phillies fans at Nationals games than Braves fans attending home games.

  17. BravoMan

    September 29, 2010 at 6:05 pm

    Andrew, it’s sad that a Philly fan spends so much time dissing another team and he won’t admit he was dead wrong about them. Admit it dude. You were wrong about those “sorry Braves who won’t sniff the playoffs”.

    I think John Kruk fits right in with his Philadelphians ….fat, pale white and lazy looking.

  18. Andrew from waldorf

    September 29, 2010 at 6:11 pm

    Oswalt or hamels its kinda moot. Unless one is clearly beter at home or on road etc etc.

    Does anyone know if the brvesless make it who wed play Sf or Cinn?

    Braves making it isnt good for us. They will get swept out and the tea we face in the NLCS will be all rested up.
    And I dont wanna play timmy and pat in round 1. round 1 should be 7 games.

  19. Bart Shart

    September 29, 2010 at 6:28 pm

    Don’t turn mean and nasty, Bravoman. We don’t hate you. YOu are a nice fella who cares about his team….perhaps too much …..that is why you are invading other winning teams sites. Living vicariously. Do the Braves have a blog you could join?

  20. Desibrave

    September 29, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    Good Afternoon Denizens, Looks like everyone is worried about Braves attendance here., BTW tickets are still available for the Phillies series.

    Any team that won divisions 3 times before this year will obviously sellout night after night.., thats no wonder.

    Here are some facts about your own PHILLIES ATTENDANCE

    Year Attendance Rank
    2001 22,846 24th
    2002 20,482 24th
    2003 28,973 15th
    2005 33,316 13th
    2006 34,200 11th
    2010 40K 2nd

    What you learn from this is Crowds come in to watch when you keep winning. Braves didn’t make playoffs 2006-2009 and this year it is stilll hanging by thread..

    Wait for a few years for Oswalt, Halladay, Howard to leave when they get old (they are already past their peaks) and you will see the CBP empty again…

  21. Desibrave

    September 29, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    We have tons of Braves Blog websites where we blog regularly and we just drop in to say hi to our friends, We visit others’ blogs aswell because we are BRAVE 🙂

  22. Andrew from waldorf

    September 29, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    The Phillies are the Yankees of the national league.
    They reload with Cliff Lee, Oswalt and Halladay not laughers like Derek Lee.

    There will not be a down time. Sure wont make it to the series every year but they wont be second tier ever again. they got the finances (thanks to the attendence) not have to.

  23. Desibrave

    September 29, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    Andrew , grow up man.., Life goes in cycles. learn from history, if you are expecting an eternity then God help you

  24. Desibrave

    September 29, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    Braves lost Martin Prado for rest of the season, thats a major blow, at this point even if they make it to postseason huffing and puffing, they will have real tough time in playoffs, Even the bullpen is shaky lately, Saito and O’Flarety are no where close to return, Venters who is another rookie of the year candidate is struggling lately, bobby used him for 82games already.. its a shame.

    Heard , charlie is not going to let Oswalt and Halladay pitch in the braves series, and that Hamels will go for 2 or 3 innings at the max.. that will be a biiiiiiig relief for the braves,

  25. Desibrave

    September 29, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    One big advantage that Braves have over Phillies or for that matter anybody else is their BENCH…, Brooks Conrad is our daily 3B after we lost Prado and guess what he does, Hits a 3run homer today which is the margin braves are winning today, and David Ross our back up catcher in place of McCann today gets 3 Doubles.., Thats why braves are still here in the race..

  26. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    September 29, 2010 at 7:09 pm

    YEA DESIBRAVE,THE PHILLIES ARE HELPING YOU GUYS OUT ALOT BY SENDING THE C-TEAM OUT THERE THIS WEEKEND…….

  27. Keegan

    September 29, 2010 at 7:12 pm

    How is this guy even talking? We won the division. We swept you guys. And Chollie will probably put our A team out this weekend just to sweep you again.

    God forbid the Phils meet the Braves in the playoffs at any point. Then you guys’ll just be talking about how much you’re gonna beat us NEXT year.

  28. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    September 29, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    What was Desibrave saying about guys hitting homers off the bench? Sounds familiar.

  34. miked63

    September 29, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    Talk about benches we just hit back to back hr’s. As far as predicting CBP to drop in attendence , it will never happen. Andrew already mentioned the Phillies will continue to reload even after the current group is gone. Phillies A ball teams are the best in baseball winning back to back titles the last two years , those guys will be here in 3 or 4 years , perfect timing. The attendence desibrave listed still shows 30 to 35 k a game even at veterans stadium. The flyers have sold out for 30 years same with eagles , sixers do go up and down depending on how the team is doing. Of all the cities with the 4 major sports Atlanta by FFAARRRRRR is the worst as far as fan support goes look it up stats dont lie. To try and compare Atlanta’s passion for theyre sports teams to Phila’s passion is an excersise in futility.

  35. miked63

    September 29, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    So andrew; how was the game you went to ?
    Philly-boy told me you were there. Give us a little scouting report , how was the food ? Did you spend a small fortune , its very expensive if you go to a game a drink more than a couple beers.

  36. miked63

    September 29, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    Now Mayberry goes yard 3 run homer , this is great for the team, everyone involved keeps all the guys pumped and involved.

    Francisco’s making a pretty good case for himself for the postseason roster.

    I still want to see Sweeney in the postseason, though.

    Is there ANYONE aside from Valdez and Dobbs who can cover second, shortstop, and third? Because Francisco and Sweeney both deserve the postseason more than Dobbs does this year.

    September 29, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    Rollins needs to be at full speed or I think id rather have valdez.
    Not drunk and just think you win with whomever allows you to win.
    Jimmy needs to hit this last week.

  54. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    September 29, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    HE WILL ALMOST BE CERTAIN TO START GAME 4 IN THE 2ND ROUND!

  60. miked63

    September 29, 2010 at 8:59 pm

    Back at ya Philly-boy ! ——- What are we gonna do for a week ?
    I cant wait , Big Joe has looked good 5 outings in a row now , he can be a solid #4 in the 7 game series. Its gonna be interesting to see who stays and who goes on the playoff roster. Last year charlie used 12 pitchers of the 25 men. Thats 13 position players , the 8 starters leaves 5 more spots.—- schnieder , valdez , ben fran , gload and who ?
    This has jimmy starting but if he cant jimmys still there to come in and hit off the bench . Thats why i asked andrew if he was drunk , dont tell me you wouldnt want jimmy coming off the bench in a big spot to hit from either side (advantage). We have seen him come thru so many times when the lites are brightest. ———– dobbs , d-brown or sweeney get the last spot

  61. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    September 29, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    NOTHING TO DO WITH THE GAME BUT-Brandon Webb has more work to do: In his instructional league outing today, his fastball was clocked at 80-82 mph.

    nice to see the b team hitting

  65. miked63

    September 29, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    I hope charlie doesnt give the last spot to his boy dobbs , its interesting though. Look at the speed the kid can give you on the bases. We might need Sweeneys right hand bat though. Charlie already has Gload to play 1st and he hits better. Valdez can play 2nd,3rd or short. I would keep Sweeney for the right hand stick, with gloads left handed bat dobbs services are not required dont need 2 backup 1st baseman. So is it sweeney for a 2nd right hand bat or the kid ?

  66. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    Assuming the Phillies maintain this lead, Joe Blanton will be 8-1 with a 3.81 ERA in his last 20 starts.

  71. Brooks

    September 29, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    Hey PN – it would be so great if we would be the reason that the Braves miss Post Season this year. We could go into Atlanta and leave with a 98-64 record. Atlanta would then be 90-72 and the Pads need to go at least 3-2 to wind up tied. The Pads wind up the season playing the Giants in SF which could be tough. The Pads have to stop losing! They have lost 3 in a row, twice to the Cubs while playing at home.

    The Pads have shown resiliency and the Braves a nose dive, so, I am not giving up on the Pads coming away with a better than 3-2, hopefully win 4 out of 5. It just would be nice to see someone else, Atlanta is boring.

  72. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    September 29, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    IT WILL BE TOUGH BROOKS,CHARLIE WILL NOT PLAY THE STARTERS…….

    Dominating outing for Big Joe.

    The Padres started downhill after that series against the Phillies in late August/early September.

    Man, what a great game.

  76. Brooks

    September 29, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    I just noticed Jay – Lidge’s ERA is down to 3.05, by the end of the season his ERA could be under 3, which in itself is a benchmark for a very decent season.

  77. Andrew from waldorf

    September 29, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    Nice win
    Dont want the braves in for a lot of reasons. they wont win round 1 and will be easily beaten by SF or cinn. But they will make it the pads and Rockies just couldnt pull it off

    reds is an OK matchup

    The Phils can not nor will not lose a series. And your right Andrew, I think we do better against SF in the longer series.

    No way the braves don’t make it now. I think if SD makes a strong enough challenge to them, they’ll end up winning the division because the last three are against the Giants. One way or the other we’re going to get the Giants at some point.

    The Rockies were really the only team that scared me in short series. The rest will succumb.

    I started watching Eastbound and Down- Dude is just like Rocker, funny stuff. I saw the first two episodes of first season

    Lot of justified hating on Greggy lately, but I think we have to keep him, Polly and Jimmy are too fragile at this point. Valdez can only play one position.

    Gload and Sweeney are the problem- two 1b’s and Gload can play OF too, but we’re set there with backups. I think Gload is going to be left off.

    Joe Blanton sighting after the game —— he has been seen ordering a 24 oz porterhouse steak (medium well) baked potato fully loaded, side of peas and a side of green beans at Benny’s Steakhouse in downtown Arlington. Also, a liter of beer and a shrimp cocktail appetizer. Toasted mini loaf of bread with a thick cheese crust and whipped butter.
