A Tale Of Two Cities

Philadelphia:



New York:


Odds & Ends

- From now on, striking out, hitting a homer and making an error in the same game will be known as a "Howard," and will be kept as an official WSBGM's statistic next year.

- Omar Minaya got a 4 year extension this week, which is great news for the Phillies. Hopefully he'll keep bringing in chumps and choke-artists. Four more years! Four more years!

- Magic number is 1 for the NL East. A Phils win or a Mets loss this weekend and it's a second title in two years for Philadelphia. It's Moyer v. Lannan today at 4:00, national TV from FOX. Get ready to celebrate. I have a case of Andre champagne in the fridge and I've covered my basement in plastic...

"I like our position, but I'll like it a lot better when we're two up with one to play," Manuel said. "That would be good. That's when I'll crack champagne, dance and sing and everything."

Wish I could be there for that..

I've made fun of Charlie Manuel a lot over the past 3 years (not so much this season), but he's even starting to win me over. I was chanting- "Charlie, Charlie, Charlie" when he went out to argue the phantom foul tip in the 9th and got tossed. He's no genius with strategy, but he's a good guy, and some times good guys make decent enough managers I suppose.

Quotes-

"If it was 100-0 [Saturday], I'd be throwing the ninth inning," Lidge said. "There's no scenario where I'm not going to force myself out there."

"When you have the opportunity to pitch in a game that has meaning, it's nice to be given the ball," Moyer said. "But you have to be able to go out there and do your part. I was able to do that last year and it was an exciting time, an exciting game. It was exciting for the fans, for the city and for the organization."

Wow Corey, you really spared no expense when you bought that champagne. Must have really set you back...a few dollars.

After Moyer wraps up the next game it will be a champagne breakfast for me. Goggles and all.

If you like laughing at the Mets, check out these anti-Mets posts from More Hardball:

Screw the Mets!
Poor, Poor New York

When the Mets miss the playoffs, there will be a major yardsale of players next season. How nice would it be to pick up Wright for a toaster and a fondue set to be named later.

GM-Carson said...

A peek at the MLB stats shows Ryan Howard leads all 1st baseman in errors and has the lowest fielding %. But he also has the most homeruns and rbi.

The Top 4 teams in the NL in era are 1. Dodger- 3.69, 2. Brewers- 3.86, 3. Cubs 3.88, and 4. Phillies- 3.89. It's no coincidence that they'll likely represent the NL in the playoffs this season.

Lets go Moyer!

I hope to see Happ pitching tommorow as Hamels rests to start the playoffs for the Phils.

GM-Carson said...

Mets with 2-0 lead in the 8th inning. Looks like the Phils will have to win to clinch. Go Moyer, Go Phils!

GM-Carson said...

Darth Santana with the shutout, time to take care of business Phils.

GM-Carson said...

Grand Pappy, or as Jenkins calls him "The Fossil", is looking good this afternoon. Phils offense is okay, but some more runs would be nice.

BloodStripes said...

Madson sucks. Drag him Charlie. You want to clinch or what?

Maria said...

I want to win. End of story.

BloodStripes said...

J-Roll you fucken champion. Top play.

Phils win back to back NL East titles.

Thankyou very much.

BloodStripes said...

Smoke my cigar mutts. Time for a champagne breakfast.

Maria said...

Holy FUCKING shit. I started to think that maybe this was going to be the one Brad Lidge blew.

Awesome.

GreggyD said...
