A Note for Tonight: The Braves are back in town after the Phillies swept them out of Atlanta last series.

    As soon as Ruiz got hit in the head I was like oh no.

    Talk about bad luck.

    I worry deeply about his health and career.

    My favorite phillie of all time.

    Must win game tonight.

    Go Phils!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    TMac caught a home run while broadcasting from the outfield. I think that is the weirdest thing I have ever seen.

    Yes and he gave a girly throw back lol

    Between KK poor pitching and the team not being able to catch pop ups looks like I can tune over to big bang theory and watch Ocean downs on the computer.

    Oh come on! Catch the damn ball Revere or Utley. When the best catch of the inning is made by TMAC, the team is in deep trouble.

    Sean Osullivan starting tomorrow means they need Kendrick to go deep in the game tonight. What do they get? 33 pitches and a three run bomb in one inning

    Deep into the game?


    This is not fun!

        Thank you Tracey. It was delicuous.

    Where are all the people that used to be here a few years ago on gameday? Brooks, Jay, Bacardi, Beta, Nova jeff, Brian Co, Boston Kate, jeff, Mike, Dipsy, – who else am I forgetting? Andrew did you scare them all away?

      I think the constant bitching chased people away. It has made me less interested in posting here. For years, all we saw on gameday was the same old complaints about the same players, usually with nothing to do with the game in front of us. It gets tiresome.

        I had to stop for the most part doing gamedays myself for a few years after we moved. Now that I’ve got a smart phone I’m back, and everyone is gone! I was thinking everyone was on Twitter now but I can see what you mean.

        Oops, sorry Tracey, everyone except you.

        I noticed a lot of people on Facebook last year (or maybe earlier), but they don’t seem to be there any more. FB doesn’t appeal to me as a place to chat about a game.

      My job changed so I catch a majority of the games on DVR when I get home at 3 am. So that is why I’m not on as much. I do read the post after I watch the game but no point in commenting on something that happened 6 hours earlier.

        Well, you gotta feed the family first, I get that. I sometimes DVR too.

      Well you have me here as consolation – but quietly this past week. My back hurts, my knees hurt, my shoulder hurts – I think it happened it happened when I got out of bed… about 20 years ago.

        wb- You’re the wittiest man on this board, always a pleasure to read. As far as the physical difficulties, I’m learning over time that there comes an age where the only joint that’s not stiff is the only one I’d like to be.

    That’s one, go for the crooked number men.

    ..seriously, that’s often the most we can hope for..

  13. Tracey

    June 27, 2014 at 8:33 pm

    Wow… we are in an division full of suck… maybe we’re not out of it yet…

    I think this is more runs than the Phils have ever gotten out of this pitcher.

    June 27, 2014 at 8:37 pm

    Cmon JMJ pretend you’re pinch hitting .

    I wish they would shut up about their site lines already. TMAC is just a schill for the club selling tickets.

    • schmenkman

      June 27, 2014 at 8:50 pm

      Eh, it could also be an honest comment. He doesn’t usually watch from out there.

  17. lefty

    June 27, 2014 at 8:53 pm

    Alright, I guess you’re right.

    • schmenkman

      June 27, 2014 at 8:56 pm

      No doubt, in any case, he takes his shill duties seriously. “Safe and secure”.

    Young Mr Abreu with 2 MORE bombs tonight. I am so ticked that I didn’t draft him when I had the chance.

  19. lefty

    June 27, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    Do Wheels and Uncle Cholly still attend games in their official positions with the team?

  20. lefty

    They’re right, Kendrick really toughed that out. I would have bet they’d have used a reliever or two by now.
