Back in the high life again
I wake up this glorious Saturday morning with a smile on my face, hope in my heart, and determination in my mind. The Phils are making believers of the heart broken, downtrodden, skeptics of the Phillies fanbase (I am one of those). I still don't know if the Wild Card is going to be in Philly at seasons end, but I know that I'm enjoying the baseball that's being played right now. I "threw in the towel" on this season months ago, and never in my life would I love to be proven wrong more than right now. So Phils fans, take pleasure in the fact that the games still mean something and that this club didn't just roll over and play dead, rather chose to stick it out and be competitive.
*Howard- It's about time the media starts hyping Ryan Howard up for MVP of the NL. His season right now is absolutely berserk!
*Sanches- It was about time he was shipped back to Scranton and another fellow ZERO ERA guy be called up in the form of Matt Smith.
*Geary- It's about time that we all recognize him for being consistent this entire season. He's not automatic by any means, but he's solid and you need pitchers like him in the bullpen.
*Manuel- It will be well past time when Manuel decides to slug an umpire for making repeatedly poor calls that screw the Phils! Last night Chavez bunted the ball into himself (out), and Reyes was caught stealing at 2nd (out), but the umps blew both calls.
P.S. BloodStripes- if you do not own that Pennywise album, you are missing out of life brotha! It's my favorite punk album from start to finish!
