The Phillies are No-Limit Soldiers, so salute and pass through the door son. Make 'em say uhh...UHH! Na-nah, na-nah...Na-Nah, na-nah! Phils are gonna make 'em say UHH, gonna make 'em say OW, they're guaranteed to move the ever-lovin' crowd.
This offense is explosive, posting yet another 10 Spot last night. Ryan Howard walloped two offerings from Florida Marlins pitchers over the fence, Fence-Face added one of his own, and the rest of the crew was patient enough to walk 7 times and bang out 6 more hits other than the longball variety. You know things are going well when Nunez and Moyer each hit a double in the same game. The pitching was excellent last night and Grand Pappy went a solid 6 innings giving up only 1 run on 5 hits, and then The Real Deal Durbin came in and recorded his 1st save by pitching 3 shut out innings in relief of Moyer. Also in need of mention was Chris Roberson's soaring catch in CF during the 9th inning...he can't hit, but field he can. *Burrell's hit streak was snapped at 14 games though; and here I thought Joey D was in danger.
Jay Baller of totally awesome chest-hair fame and marginal pitching ability was arrested for playing with a gun and using drugs. He was apparently walking the line in his post-MLB days...a little white powdery line that is, as the drug was cocaine. Baller pitched in relief for the Phillies in '82 and '92 (first and last year of his career) and is also a Reading Phillies Hall of Fame member for his remarkable minor league stay there in 1979-1982. He now joins the loser ranks of Derek Bell.
