Your gameday beer: Yards Love Stout
Victory LagerAnything from Yards is a friend of mine. They just make damn good beers. My favorite is Yards ESA, but this Love Stout is intriguing. It’s a very dark beer with a dark head that has a chocolate and coffee aroma. For you java lovers, this could be gold. For those who enjoy Guinness, it’s right up there in taste and color, no lie. If your in Philly, get down to the Yards brewery on Columbus Blvd and order a grilled cheese with one of these and enjoy. -Pat Gallen

    Pretty routine game so far. Kendrick has a 3 hit shutout through 6, and Maxi Mart has a homer, and single.

    Wait til they red about it in the paper tomorrow, and think it’s an April Fool’s edition.

    Kendrick working on icing down the number 5 starter’s role by season’s end.

      Not to mention Kevin Fransden’s 2nd 3 hit game of the weekend.

      “I wouldnt be able to thank you enough.”

      That’s a clown request, bro. We work thanks in advance around here, and I didn’t see any greenbacks, so there wasn’t even a thankful effort.

    Kendrick’s at like 103 w/ 1 out in the 8th. Shame his pitch count’s gonna be such that he prolly gets pulled after 8. Helluva week for the young man.

    I swear, at 113, KK is not too far above commanding the respect of a Doc, Cliff, or Cole, where once in a while, it seems like it’s left up to them if they wanna go one more.

    I mean, back to back donuts for Kyle Kendrick? And just how many guys can brag to the grandkids they threw back to back shutouts at any time in their career?

    I hope he gets to start the 9th, and we’ll see where it leads. Or at least is his call, if enough is enough.

    Phils end T9 with 14 hits.

    Take this lineup as first string over162, and ir wins at most 65 games, maybe 75 with a rotation of Koufax, Carlton, Seaver, John Tudor, and Greg Maddux, but on any given Sunday, boy, did they get the job done.

    Yeah, I said John Tudor. Smooth as silk in his career prime.

    Where’s Bart. We need a “Kyle, you stink” chant to ensure the shutout

    Kyle, you stink

    (Apparently, badmouthing KK on this board is the only method known to mankind that will guarantee that he throws a gem. Hey, who am I to doubt a sure thing)

    Kendrick shut down after 8 shutout frames. Now preps for his Friday night assignment V the Nats. His starts for the year now include 2 complete game shutouts (Cards, Fish), 8 innings of shutout baseball against the Crew, and a game against the Bucs where he spotted them 5 in tyhe first, but pitched shutout baseball the other 5-6 innings. Good to see the young man step up to an oft beligerent fan base (self definiteoly included) and show some good stuff.

    Sure, we’ll see how long it lasts, but tra la la la la, let’s live for today, and today was HUGE.

    A combined shut out by Kendrick and Schwimmer?

    Maybe Lee should watch some film of them pitching.

      So changing the subject, in 1920, the Dodgers and Braves played to a 1-1 26 inning tie. Cards and Mets played 25 innings within modern times, but that 1920 game still holds the record. I wonder how many games have gone extra innings where observors even thought the particular game had a shot at coming close, tying, or surpassing that 26 inning mark.

      The Pirates, today, scored a run in the top of the 17th to take a 3-2 lead over the Cards. St. Louis tied it back up in B17, and the game rolls on.

      In full self confession mode, any game I watch that goes this long, I’ve always figured had a chance to match the 26 innings. So on behalf of the Pirates and Cards, and remaining fans getting their money’s worth under the Arch today, I would say “why not us?” as it’d be cool to live through a unique record, that, if it is ever broken, good luck trying to break the new record.

      Sometimes, replies to comments are better than the original comment. Sometimes is the operative word.

        As soon as I read this I logged onto MLB and ssee that the Reds have given up the lead in the top of the 19th, its 4-3 Pirates still with 1 out.
        The last really long game I went to was 2 years ago when the stinking Astros and teh Phils went 16, the Phils lost, Howard got tossed out (he was 0 for 7 as well) and Roy Oswalt played left field. My buddy and I took the Patco and the trains leaving center city were very few and far between, it was already about 1:20 in the morning so we took a cab back to Haddonfield with 2 very drunk girls (who did not defray the cost that much).
        Terrible game, given that from the 9th inning on the Phils stranded I believe at least 8 batters. The strohs walked at least 9 Phils during that game – terrible.

        Geez, as memorable as they were, the Oswalt game in LF, and the Willie Valdez game, for the life of me, at this time, I can’t recall if they were the same game, or what. But I remember when Roy O played left, that was definitely good stuff, and I remember him catching a fly, and getting an appreciative ovation from a good sized crowd still watching.

        Little better late than n3ever recall….the Houston 16 inning game was the one where Howard got tossed for arguing a called strike in the 9th. Howard was pissed, and since he doesn’t argue them too often, he was probably right. I forget who the ump was, but I think he had/has a rep as a moron. That was a 4 game set, and the Phils lost all 4. I think that was the first game of the series.

        Valdez game, V the Reds was separate. Boy, was that a fun thing to watch. He was actually in the upper 80s on the gun.

    McCutchen comes through big (again) hitting a clutch 2 out single with the bases loaded to extend the Pirates lead to 6-3 going into the bottom of the 19th.
    Glad we dont have to face this guy anymore this year.

    Ken, Howard was 0 for 7 this game.. what was the name of the dink that tossed him, beligerant Scot Barry. Howard charged him which of course made it worse it was the 14th inning. Yes, Roy did catch a ball but with all the men left on base, it was not a good game. That and the fact that we were swept by the lowly, yes lowly Astros.

    Historically, Western health-related ethics may be traced to guidelines on the duty of physicians in antiquity, including the Hippocratic Oath, and early rabbinic and Christian teachings. The very first code of medical ethics, Formula Comitis Archiatrorum, was published in the 5th century, throughout the reign of the Ostrogothic king Theodoric the Great. In the medieval and early contemporary period, the field is indebted to Muslim medicine such as Ishaq bin Ali Rahawi (who wrote the Conduct of a Doctor, the initial book dedicated to medical ethics) and Muhammad ibn Zakariya ar-Razi (known as Rhazes in the West), Jewish thinkers for example Maimonides, Roman Catholic scholastic thinkers including Thomas Aquinas, and also the case-oriented analysis (casuistry) of Catholic moral theology. These intellectual traditions continue in Catholic, Islamic and Jewish medical ethics. source: now
