Jimmy Rollins rolled into San Fran, deposited himself in the starting lineup in his customary leadoff spot, and promptly went 3-5 with a run, double, homerun, and 3 rbi. Welcome back J-Roll, we missed ya! Jimmy's obviously a motivator, he hustles his booty off on the field, and plays with a fiery passion for the game that's contagious. I've grown accustomed to seeing him in the lineup daily and having him absent for such a long time made viewing the Phils less enjoyable. He's one of the best shortstops in the game, and I'm damn glad he's back and healthy. Hopefully his assertion as sparkplug atop the the batting order gets the Phils on a roll.
For the 3rd or 4th time this season a Phillies game will not be televised in the Harrisburg area. Usually I call up Comcast and give one of their underpaid undeserving phone operators a piece of my mind, but today I won't. Why? The game isn't televised anywhere. Due to some stupid asinine Fox agreement the Phils won't be broadcast today...money grubbing whores!!!
What will we be missing? That goofy looking S.O.B. Tim Lincecum pitching against Jamie Moyer, who has recently been chosen for an episode of "Pimp My Walker"...I bet they bling that thing out with some chrome, orthopedic hand grips, and a sweet-ass pill dispenser.
