    Dontrelle Willis is a lefty, not a righty.

    missed all the scoring so far but it is nice to have baseball on tv. Not sure how many ST games I ll see living in VT But with Extra inning season games are no problem. Nice 1 2 3 for new closer. And Hunter with a dinger is always nice. Got to love that baseball for real is almost here.

    Good to see the Phils back in action. Sad to see Rauuuul on the other side.

    I was lucky enough to be at the game today. It has been far too long since I last saw baseball. Thome got the biggest ovation in introductions which should be no surprise. Man its nice to have him back. In the first inning my friend who is a Yankees fan was utterly confused by Pence’s swing. After his home run he still did not understand it but he could not debate the results. Nice to see Cole and Papelbon’s first appearance as a Phillie. I think the formation of our bench is going to be very interesting process with some good potential.

    After the game I ran into Dave Montgomery and he autographed my ticket and thanked me for coming. Seemed like a really nice guy.
