Fun & Delicious!
Now that's what I'm talking about! Last night's 14-inning win over the Reds was one helluva ball game. Phillies looked down and out late in the game, then storm back on a J-Roll homerun and Burrell triple of all things. Flash comes in an surrenders the lead, but the Phils fight back yet again. Rowand finally wins the game with a single...great game! The team played with heart last night and fought the entire time. Just like PEZ, last night's game was fun and delicious!
*Embrace the beard- that's right, Rick White might not be that great of a reliever, but he's got some awesomely ugly facial hair and is pitching ok for the Phils, so I'm rootin' for him!
*Fear Howard- walked 4 times last night, and more and more teams are pitching around him.
*Lock him up- David Dellucci should be offered a contract extension right now! He's making that Abreu trade look better and better with every game played.
*Cut him- Nunez really is bad. How much longer does this "chance" for him last...he just can't hit!
*Pitch him- Fabio Castro better be appearing in a game soon, because Geary's arm is going to fall off.
*Bat him 6th- Rollins is showing that he should be an rbi guy rather than a leadoff man.
*Believe- this season is fun again, so go ahead and indulge yourself and start fantasizing about Wild Cards! Who cares how unlikely a scenario it is that the Phillies achieve that goal, have fun with it and we as fans may just be rewarded in the end.
