The Phillies are just like Costco, dealing ass kicking in bulk. 8 runs Friday, 9 runs Saturday. Do I dare suggest they go double digits tonight? Along with the offense's new groove is solid pitching by Kyle Kendrick, Cole Hamels, and the bullpen. Pat Burrell was Fox's player of the game yesterday, tying a carrer high 5 rbi game, and he thinks the Phils are ready to go on a roll. Hey the Mets lost, Phils won, 1.5 games back...now is a good time to go on that Proverbial roll. Go Phils!
*Geoff Jenkins indeed is banged up enough to warrant a DL stint and Andy Tracy has been summoned from Lehigh Valley to take his spot on the roster. Tracy can hit bombs, 230 minor league homeruns, and he has seen MLB time with Montreal and Colorado is the past. He plays firstbase, but could also be used as an emergency outfielder or thirdbaseman.
*Joe "Don't Call Me Eaton" Blanton takes on Kiroki Kuroda tonight in prime time on ESPN. Because it's ESPN and it's Sunday night, that means the endless droning and self-righteousness of Joe Morgan...ugh!
