Tuesday’s Game Postponed – Phillies Nation

Tuesday’s Game Postponed

Tonight’s game against the New York Mets has been postponed due to inclement weather, according to Mets beat reporter Anthony DiComo.  The game will be made up on Thursday, September 20 at 7:10 p.m.

According to Todd Zolecki of Phillies.com, Cole Hamels will pitched Wednesday as scheduled.  Tyler Cloyd will pitch Thursday.

Since the Phillies aren’t playing tonight, keep an extra eye on the game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Houston Astros.  Hopefully Houston can beat up on the Cards like they did to the Phillies.  If the Cardinals lose tonight, the Phillies could still gain a half game in the Wild Card standings.

    Throughout the course of sports history, athletes have struck. Not enough coin in the kitty, I guess. Course strikes are never about the money, nothing is.

    But during the course of these strikes, all sorts of failed efforts have been made to appease maddened fans.

    Now tonight is not a strile, of course, but with the Fightins hanging by a pennant thread, perhaps people can post as if there was a game anyway, and of course, the Phils might have a better chance to win that way. Hell, the outtatown scoreboard might find the Brewers and Pirates losing, the Astros winning, and the Dodgers returning to Brooklyn singing “Who”ll Stop the Rain.”

    We’ll see if Tracey posts the likes of “YIKES!”, or “OH DARN!” in the same rhythm that he does during live blogging of Phillies real baseball, or at least the same pissoffedness.

    THESE, as Dave Zinkoff used to say across the street…are your PHILLIE starters for tonight’s game…


    PLAY BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Can’t remember who the pitcher was, but last year, desperate for last week pitching help, the Red Sox, I THINK went so far as to have actual discussions to make a deal for some guy to pitch one of their last games of the year. Might have been a Blue Jay.

    This is related to that, and I’m not endorsing it necessarily, and I don’t get the impression the Phils are thinking in this direction, but if they do need a 5th starter for the last couple weeks, I did run across one semi possibility on the cleared waiver list since bringing back Pedro would be cool, but ain’t happening.

    Kevin Millwood, ex of the club, and 37 years old pitched decent baseball his last 2 starts. A quick glance at his numbers for the year might categorize his year as pretty much justifying clearing waivers despite a lot of experience, and a one million full year salary that carries no obligation beyind this year.

    What it comes down to is does the club think Cloyd has a future that would remain unaffected by pulling him. If not, and they can cut the gap again and get in a real position to call in the race, which to my thinking they were on the border of, but that’s it, Millwood is the only outside name that seems like he MIGHT be worth a shot. They might not even have to give up a player, doing cash.

    I’m not forgetting Cloyd’s fine results this year, or that he did mix 1 good start in his brief time here. Nor overestimating Millwood’s possibilities. This admittedly is taken out of context, which should be remembered, but Ruben called Cloyd, or his year that of an overachiever, and that wasn’t said in blatant complimentary terms. Rather, an opinion of a question mark.

    Cloyd’s pitching Thursday because they didn’t want him facing the Braves. After Thursday, it’s possible we’ll see if they want him to pitch again this year. The options are limited, but more expansive than the playoff possibilities. One game could mean everything. Or the season could be over AGAIN by the time Cloyd pitches. Gotta be flexible this time of year.

    Three games postponed in one night because of possible tornados. Where is Ed Rendell when you need him? Has he called any of the talk shows yet to say we are a nation of wimps.
