2014 Gameday

Gameday 66: Cubs vs. Phillies



Chicago Cubs (26-38) at Philadelphia Phillies (28-36)

Starting Pitchers:
CHI: Edwin Jackson (4-6, 4.70)
PHI: David Buchanan (1-3, 6.08)

Time: 3:05, Citizens Bank Park
Weather: Sunny, 72
Media: Twitter and Facebook

A Note for Tonight: The Phillies are coming off a frustrating 2-1 loss against the  Cubs.  They’ll send rookie David Buchanan to the mound to rebound from last night’s loss.  Buchanan had one bad inning in his last outing that cost him the loss.  After his Major League debut, Buchanan has had his struggles, posting a 6.75 ERA in his last 18 2/3 innings.

Jimmy Rollins is one hit away from passing Mike Schmidt as the Phillies’ all-time leader in hits.

Lineup: Revere CF/ Rollins SS/ Utley 2B/ Howard 1B/ Byrd RF/ Brown LF/ Ruiz/ Brignac 3B/ Buchanan P

    Way to go Jimmy. Now it’s your record for everyone else to chase.

    Congratulations, JRoll. Good to see Schmidty being such a good sport about this.

    Fireworks, etc Ya think they were prepared for this?

    And fare thee well, Jimmy. We know you’re on the trading block now that you’ve gotten the record.

    Congrats to Jimmy.

    One of the greatest Phillies of all time.

    Honestly, I thought it might take him a couple more games to get the record. There is usually a stress factor that delays milestones.

    I’m glad he was able to get the record at home.

    On a different note, I hope this is Buchanon’s last start…that’s 7 HRs allowed in like 30 IP…that’s ridiculous!

    OH BABY!!! Way to go, Dom!

    (where was all this offense last night, when I was sitting alone at the ballpark, bored???)

    From 2001 to 2009 Jimmy was very good.

    Hall of fame level really.

    He has declined as has the club since then.

    Not to the extent of Howard but it is similar.

    I have to think his decline may be more organizational then personal.

    Congrats Jimmy who is a top 5 player of mine for the first 8 years of his career.

    Somewhere down the line he will goto cooperstown on just bulk of stats and that he had a good glove at a glove first position.

    Way to go J Rol

      He declined to where he was only the second best SS on the planet in 2012, and the second or third best in 2014.

    Schmidty said on the broadcast that, as he was heading out for JRoll’s celebration (or maybe after it), Dom Brown asked him for some hitting advice, and Schmidty told him something… and then Dom hit an HR!

    Great story by Schmidt on Dom Brown’s home run.

  16. lefty

    June 14, 2014 at 5:05 pm

    I hope he’ll still be on tomorrow.

  17. Tracey

    June 14, 2014 at 5:06 pm

    Schmidt? Yeah, he just said he will. He said he’s been here (the ballpark) since Wednesday, and he was going to be here tomorrow anyway (Sunday)

    • lefty

      Good. Years ago when he first worked in the booth I didn’t care for him there, but I’ve enjoyed him on Sunday’s this season.

      Same here, Lefty.
      I think Schmitty has actually gone from dicey at best in the booth to become a terrific color guy.
      He’s lively, alert, entertaining, asks intelligent, penetrating and fresh questions and has a lot of Phillies’ and MLB history to share with listeners from a very unique perspective.
      And he looks great despite his self-deprecation.
      He had us all worried for awhile.

    … that so rarely happens…

      4 times out of every 10, whereas they used to win 6 times out of 10.

        Sorry, I forgot to put the /joking/ tag around that comment.

        You can save your corrections for the many people who don’t stop bitching about the team, and spare those few of us who are cheering for the team.

      • schmenkman

        Was meant more as a comment on the relatively fine line between a very good team and a very bad team, but nevertheless, point taken.

    The post-game show keeps referring to JRoll in the past tense. You think they know something?
