Sister Sledge put it best, "We are family, much love between Pittsburgh and Philly". Ok, I took a bit of liberty with the lyrics, but you get the point. These might not be the Willie Stargell and Roberto Clemente Pirates, but they are playing very well lately. The Buccos are also sending love the Phillies way...thanks for slugging the crap outta the Dodgers last night. Can ya give us two more in a row? The Phillies need the Pirates right now. If the Phils would have seized the opportunity earlier in the season, it wouldn't come down to needing the help of another team. But such is baseball, and no better to help us than our STATE buddies. Ronny Paulino has quickly become my favorite catcher and he, Bay, Castillo, Duffy, Nady, Wilson, and Sanchez might just score enough runs in the next 2 game to give the Phillies what they need...of course the Phils need to win themselves.
Bodacious Buckets of Bliss:
*Dellucci- thank you for fulfilling my prophecy. Over on BeerLeaguer I predicted you would come up big before the game started...that double to start the scoring helped. Oracle Drama Queen back in session, fees are $29.99 plus tax.
*Moyer- you're old, you're pitches are slow, you're my hero!
*Gordon- thanks for coming back and nailing down the games here in September...we missed you Flash!
*Rollins- where the heck did all this power come from?
*Nunez- I hate your bat, but I do love your glove.
*Pirates- you're my 2nd favorite team, and I'm hoping you win more than ever. Keep playing for pride and finish the season on a positive note.
*Geary- you of "Gas Can" fame are a staff savior, as you've been dependable all season.
*Marlon Anderson- go to hell! The dude has 5 homeruns for the Dodgers in 15 games since they picked him up from the (g)Nats...damn Nationals are still haunting us even though we aren't playing them anymore.
P.S. Back by popular demand is our favorite kiddy star Winnie Cooper...oh you naughty minx! We Phillies fans need to keep fantasizing right?
