Bobby "Big Boy" Munoz stood 6 foot 7 inches tall and weighed in at 252 pounds. He came to Philly via the Yankees in a trade that netted the Phils esteemed utility man Kevin Jordan and prospect flop Ryan Karp for our old friend Terry Mulholland. He pitched for the Phillies from 1994-1997, his best year being '94 where he went 7-5 with a 2.67 ERA in 21 games and 14 starts while pitching 104 and 2/3 innings. Munoz was a helluva hitter too, batting .206 with a homerun and 6 RBI in '94. Each season thereafter, he continued to worsen until the Phils granted him free agency after the '97 season. During his career he made appearances for the Yanks, Phils, O's, and Expos, compiling an 11-22 record accompanied with a 5.17 ERA and 1.59 WHIP. Is it me, or does Bobby look like Charles Fuqua Manuel's retarded offspring?
*Pat's bat has come back to life. Now we need to jump start J-Roll's so the offense can get rolling.
*Wes Helms is a disappointment, taking an 0-4 collar yesterday with 3 k's. He has played shoddy defense at 3rd, shown no power, and has caused to me to rather see Abe Nunez's name penciled into the lineup instead of his...that's the ultimate in pathetic.
*Freddy Garcia may have only given up 2 runs yesterday in 5 and 2/3 inngs, but he was supposed to be a workhorse for this staff. So why is he tiring in the 5th inning?
*Taking 3 out of 4 from the Brewers, who entered the series as the best team in the NL, is a success. Now we move on to stupid Inter-League play against Toronto, and on that note- Screw Joe Carter!
