    Williams has been looking great for the Phils so far. Maybe we can squeeze a win out of this one. If we can hit something.

    The listing says Phillies broadcast

    But its really the mets broadcast.

    Have to over come, improvise and adapt.

    Huge game.

    GO PHILS!!!!!!!!!!!

    WOW! Great catch!

  5. Tracey

    WHEW!

  6. Tracey

    Wow.. blink and you missed a whole inning…

    I have the home broadcast. Its almost always the Muts guys for their games.

      How does that happen?

      If the Mets win

      I am blaming you

      I am the golden child!

  8. Tracey

    Woo hoo!!! Phils get a hit!!!

  9. Tracey

    Phils announcers are talking about Ben’s ongoing ankle problems

  10. Lefty

    August 30, 2014 at 7:49 pm

    Oh Benny, you gotta get guys in from third. Just gotta get r done son. I feel for him playing with that bad foot, but if he’s the best average hitter we have, then he’s got to drive in guys on third with two outs.

  11. Lefty

    August 30, 2014 at 7:53 pm

    Ruining the childhood of Muts fans everywhere. Jimmy Rollins. Damn – close

  12. Tracey

    August 30, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    How the hell do you blow a rundown???

  13. Andrew from waldorf

    August 30, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    Oh wow

    cant do a run down.

    and

    Willie mays is playing all 3 outfield positions for the Mets tonight.

  14. Tracey

    August 30, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    Phillies announcers think Utley got him.

    • Tracey

      August 30, 2014 at 8:03 pm

      Yup, they had a freeze-frame of the tag.

  15. Lefty

    August 30, 2014 at 8:05 pm

    That’s how long replay should take. I wouldn’t mind replay if they were all like that.

    • Tracey

      August 30, 2014 at 8:09 pm

      I’ve heard that it doesn’t actually take more time than the manager coming out and arguing, but replay is boring.

      • Tracey

        August 30, 2014 at 8:12 pm

        And in the ballpark, the first 30 seconds of replay are a black screen with the words “Replay brought to you by Samsung..” In case you thought replay couldn’t be any more boring.

      Saw the play. It’s hard to believe that the umpire missed the tag. It wasn’t a close play. Just really bad positioning by the umpire. I thought Wright should have been out for running on the grass to evade the tag but it was very easy to see the tag.

  16. Tracey

    August 30, 2014 at 8:06 pm

    I really need to fix my Harry Kalas game-calling app to handle the new replay rule. It picked up an extra out when the play was overturned..

  17. Tracey

    August 30, 2014 at 8:09 pm

    OH BABY!!! PHILS TAKE THE LEAD!!!

  18. Tracey

    August 30, 2014 at 8:15 pm

    HAHAHAHAHAH!!! They look as bad as the Phils!

  19. Lefty

    August 30, 2014 at 8:19 pm

    When I first heard about replay I envisioned it being called the “WB Mason replay break”. I guess Samsung paid more.

    LMAO at TMAC waxing poetic. ” Oh the changing of the seasons”

    I missed the Byrd bomb on the phone.

    • Tracey

      August 30, 2014 at 8:25 pm

      It was just over the wall, not in an area where there are seats.

  22. Lefty

    August 30, 2014 at 8:25 pm

    Could Buchanan look any younger? Sheeesh my kids look way older than him.

    • Tracey

      August 30, 2014 at 8:26 pm

      That’s a sign that you’re getting old. I feel your pain. Though my kids are fluffy, so their age looks quite different.

      • Lefty

        August 30, 2014 at 8:29 pm

        I have one fluffy one too. Looks a lot like Andrews dog, but even she looks older than Buchanan!

  23. Lefty

    August 30, 2014 at 8:26 pm

    Cliff Lee and Marlon Byrd and I have something in common. Any guesses?

    • Tracey

      August 30, 2014 at 8:27 pm

      Happy Birthday!

      • Lefty

        August 30, 2014 at 8:30 pm

        Thank you!

  24. Tracey

    August 30, 2014 at 8:34 pm

    Wow! 3 on and no outs? Am I watching the right game?

  25. Lefty

    August 30, 2014 at 8:35 pm

    And the big piece up. Yes !

  26. Tracey

    August 30, 2014 at 8:35 pm

    Woo hoo!!! More runs!!! They’ve got Colon’s number!

  27. Lefty

    August 30, 2014 at 8:38 pm

    Oh crap, just lost all my baseball channels! What’s going on? Andrew’s fault has to be.

  28. Tracey

    August 30, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    EVERYBODY HITS! WOO HOO!!!

  29. Andrew from waldorf

    August 30, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    Glad I bet this game despite Leftys ridicule. I am not betting tomorrows.

    Made it back tonight 🙂

  30. Tracey

    August 30, 2014 at 8:42 pm

    So if the Phils don’t blow it, tomorrow is half-price pizza day.

    5-0

    this is in the bag I hope

  32. Tracey

    August 30, 2014 at 8:46 pm

    Unbelievable!!

  33. Tracey

    August 30, 2014 at 8:48 pm

    THis is a textbook example of small ball: 7 singles, 6 runs.

    • Tracey

      August 30, 2014 at 8:48 pm

      Oops… 5 runs; I forgot about Byrd’s HR.

  34. Lefty

    August 30, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    Nothing is in the bag around here.

  35. Lefty

    August 30, 2014 at 9:29 pm

    AB saves the day.

    14th time this year they’ve scored 5+ in an inning.

    Also, tonight is Rollins’ 656th career multi-hit game. Ashburn’s team record is 657.

  37. Tracey

    August 30, 2014 at 10:03 pm

    Ooo… I’m back just in time for the game end…

  38. Lefty

    August 30, 2014 at 10:08 pm

    Oh yeah.

  39. Tracey

    There are days I watch this team and wonder how come they can not play like that all the time. And I listen to all the complaining about RAJ. So he over paid slightly for a few guys like Paps and gave a few guys one too many years. But he has put together a pretty good young bull pen. He went out a got a lead off hitter that hits .300 and steals bases. Granted he does not walk but he doesn’t swing at pitches out of the strike zone very often. He brought in a RH bat and above avg defensive RFer who will hit 25 plus HRS and is hitting .275. Not too bad

      Shag, so if we follow your assessment, then the issue is Sandberg. Bring back Charlie!

      Not to mention Grady Sizemore, who the Phillies got for nothing or close to it. And the Revere acquisition would have looked even better (and Amaro that much shrewder ) if we had picked up Worley on the rebound when the Twins were giving up on him. Of course, had Lee and Burnett not incurred physical ailments, we might well be neck-and-neck with the Braves and in contention for a WC. (Burnett, by the way, I see as another good acquisition that could look even better – if he wants to play and patches himself up in the off-season.)

      But so be it. I think it was Bernard Baruch who, when asked how he became so successful as an investor, said “by selling too soon.” In other words – don’t be afraid to derive benefit from a profitable situation, and move on. I think a ballclub should be run with the same philosophy in mind, and that’s where my biggest gripe is with the front office. Granted that ballplayers aren’t stocks, and loyalty to players and fans alike comes into play. Nevertheless, one didn’t need a freakin’ crystal ball to see, a couple of years ago at least, that this was an aging ballclub and – especially in view of a thinned-out minor league talent pool – in need of a personnel and payroll overhaul.

      In 2014 we should be well along in our rebuilding process (see “Chicago Cubs”) and not stuck with a huge payroll together with beyond-their-prime stars who are of little or no trading value.
