Irresistible Force Meets An Immovable Object

vs.

Don't miss this epic battle. Not since David met Goliath, or Tyson met Holyfield or Cory Matthews met Harley (you know, when Harley tried to get Sean to hit Mr. Turner's bike with a baseball bat) have we seen powers like this collide.

Oliver Perez takes his best skills - giving up lots of walks, hits, and runs; losing 8 mph of his fastball in 4 months; wearing Randall Simon-esque neck jewelry; and being a total jackass to everyone on his team - and matches them up tonight against Jose Hernandez and his best attributes - striking out; and convincing 9 teams to pay him to strike out.

Don't miss this one.

Keep an eye out for Perez's Posse. They went to every one of Ollie's starts at PNC Park.

chalk one up for the irresistable force.

I think I heard the ad for Graham Slam Ice Cream twice before the first pitch was thrown.

Perez is looking like a Cy Young contender tonight and Lieber slipping into old habits.

And here comes WB Mason on TV!

A $10,000 grand slam home run pay off by Ryan Howard.......wwoooooo hooooooo! Love that man.

5-2 Phillies!!!

dane said...

bloodstripes- did you check out my blog post about college baseball

Whelkman said...

Not knocking the grand slam, but it was a terrible at bat otherwise. He has to learn to lay off lame pitches.

Bob D said...

Wait till he starts hitting better and laying off lame pitches.

Whelkman said...

I hate this team.

Maria said...

Whelkman I think you hate Rick White for ruining what would've been a great game for Ryan Howard & the Phillies

Whelkman said...

Don't forget Doughnut Man.

BloodStripes said...

Wow. I leave at 5-2 Phillies and they get bashed 11-5. Very disappointing.

Hey what about that commercial with the blog talk in it and the guy says......."hmmm maybe I blog too much."

Yep.

GM-Carson said...

There is no such thing as "blogging too much" Viva la WSBGM's!!!!

Alright, screw yesterday's game...back to business this afternoon to win the series. Or like city folk would say back to "bidnit"...they talk sooo funny!
