    Wow there is basically no speed whatsoever in this lineup. Unless we are hitting the ball out of the park so many times today this is going to be tough to win this.

        Revere don’t have a lot of doubles but he surely has his share of singles. The guy is our second leading her on the entire team.

    Woo hoo! Second night in a row Ryan Howard gets a HR in the first inning to start the Phils off right!

        How about “Pete McKamikaze”?

        Just terrible judgment from that guy in general. I suppose it’s good to take some chances but there is a difference between taking chances and standing in front of a moving train.

    You know not to be too optimistic, but this team has played much better the last game and a half. Brignac has been a nice spark for them. Kendrick seems to be following Hamels lead tonight

    Amazing that Gwynn only struck out 3 times v Maddox, Glavine and Stoltz in all those AB’s.

    Only a masochist would think back right about now to what if I recall correctly was the start, or around it of Doc’s trip to nowhere. He had a 6 run lead against the Braves, down there, and ……can we play takeover?

    Gawd, I hope they win this game. Be a lot more meaningful if they win tomorrow, but that’s then.

    This tease just exhausts ya, and it’s not like even when they’re good, they’re good.

      For a moment, TMAC thought he was calling the Chunichi Dragons game.
