Coming off of a sweep of the Mets, the Phils had a chance to make some hay against a bottom-feeder. But then they remind all of us why we shouldn't get our hopes up, losing 2 of three to the International League champion KC Royals. 17 freakin' runs. If KC can put up that many, what are the ChiSox and Tigers going to put on the board in the next week?
Not many things to talk about in yesterday's game. It was nice to see Jimmy Rollins try to steal third with two on and two outs in the first with Burrell at bat. What the hell was he thinking? There were two outs, getting to third at that point is relatively useless. Was he trying to get in "extra special scoring position?" (Although, that does sound like a decent place to be...) And what exactly is Geoff Geary doing in a game down 6 runs in the 8th inning? He's arguably been their most consistent reliever this year, and now he's in mop-up duty? Condrey, Hernandez and Rosario are all sitting in the pen and Geary has to clean up at the end of a blowout? Why not run Mesa back out there. I say pitch him in every meaningless inning until his arm falls off, that is the only way they will get value from that signing. The stupidity doesn't stop...
1 run, 2 run, 3 run, 4,
Unfortunately they scored more.
5 run, 6 run, 7 run, 8,
This pitching staff, I do hate.
9 run, 10 run, 11 run, 12,
Into the garbage we further delve.
13 run, 14 run, 15 run, 16,
Did I just say sixteen?
Oh, the scoring was yet to be done,
The KC Royals scored 17 f'n runs!
All off of the Phillies on Sunday,
For this is a comedy of errors they play.
