It's time to hurdle this obstruction of a .500 record. The Phils started the season off miserably (4-11), but since that inexcusable beginning they've played better baseball to the tune of a 18-11 record. They've been winning series, but have yet to pull of a sweep. Roll out the red carpet for the King, as Cole scales the hill tonight to finally push the Phillies over the brink to "winning baseball". We're going to reel in some big fish this week, as Hamels (6-1, 3.30 ERA) takes on Scott Olsen (3-3, 4.80 ERA) in the series opener for win #1 in Florida today.
On Wednesday for win #2 will be Freddy "Chief" Garcia against Ricky "Tobasco" Nolasco, and finishing up the sweep on Thursday will be Donut-Eater Lieber opposed by Byung-Hyun Kim. You're my boy Burrell, you're my boy...he looks to continue his sizzling supremacy (5 homers in 10 games) from the homestand and torch the Marlins pitching. The season series between the Phightins and the Fish is all evened up at 3-3. This is a big 3 game set against Florida as the Phils then travel to Atlanta for a 3 game weekend series. As mentioned above, enough with this hovering around mediocrity (.500), it's time to break on through to the other side, the positive side.
Here's some inspiration..."What the Kruk?"
