Here’s a bit of cool news. The hat Wilson Valdez wore during the Phillies 19 inning win against the Reds on Wednesday night – the win that Wilson Valdez got for them by throwing 1 inning in relief – is headed to Cooperstown for the Baseball Hall of Fame. Congrats to Wilson, that’s a pretty incredible honor. Now onto the game…
Uh-oh, a lefty. The Mets will send Chris Capuano to the mound to try and toy with the Phillies, a team that looks to be on the brink of a nice explosion on offense. Capuano has struggled this season, but has tamed lefties, keeping them to a .630 OPS.
That could mean bad things for Utley, Howard, and Rollins. Or, it might not. Either way, enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend!
Rollins SS, Utley 2B, Polanco 3B, Howard 1B, Francisco RF, Ibanez LF, Ruiz C, Mayberry CF, Oswalt P
Your Gameday Beer – Corona Light
We’ll be enjoy Corona Light’s all weekend long on the beach and we soak up the rays and wait for the Phillies game to start. That’s livin’ right there. Corona light is surprisingly smooth and won’t fill you up. Most beer advocates look down upon Corona, but I’m of the many that believe it’s a great beer. I’d much rather drink it than Miller or Bud – but that’s just me. Enjoy the weekend! – By Pat
