Anna Benson, I barely knew ye. Damn shame too, you would have looked good in a Phils jersey. However, your hubby could never get a full bill of health and has struggled in the the Phillies minor league system all season long and finally was released by the organization yesterday. I wish Kris luck, but it's time to move on.
Chest Pounding Good Time:
I'm not much for big flashy baseball celebrations unless it's a game winning hit or the last out of a game that clinches something meaningful. However, JC Romero's over-the-top chest pound following his execution of 3 Cubs via the strikeout yesterday to preserve the win in the 8th inning was f'n cool!
Tomorrow, Monday September 1st is when rosters expand from 25 to anybody on the 40 man roster. Potential call-ups for the Phils are pitchers JA Happ, Les Walrond, and Adam Eaton, outfielders TJ Bohn, Brandon Watson, Greg Golson, and Chris Snelling, infielders Mike Cervenak and Brad Harman, and catcher Jason Jaramillo.
Grand Pappy Moyer tries to pitch the Phils to a 2-2 split of the series with the Cubbies against crazy-man Carlos Zambrano. Last day of August, games remaining in the season dwindling, still trailing the Mets, oh it's a huge game today.
