Friday- death to Mets via Brett Myers' masterful pitching arm.
Saturday- washout due to bucket loads of rain.
Sunday- split day/night double-header with Grand Pappy pitching skillfully and Cole Hamels pitching tentatively.
Overall, the weekend series against the Mets was a success. Phils went to New York 3 games out of the NL East division lead, and leave town only 2 games back. Last night's game with our ace on the mound would have been nice to win, but a sweep just wasn't meant to be according to fat pitches by Cole and a fat bat carried by Carlos Delgado. The Mets get a day of rest today while the Phils head back home for a series against the fanless Marlins.
*Greg Dobbs hitting homeruns.
*Ryan Howard going the opposite way for singles and homeruns.
*Jamie Moyer and Brett Myers blanking the Mets over 15 innings.
*Matt Stairs contributing.
*The return of Tadahito Iguchi.
*Pat Burrell being the worst offensive player in MLB over the past month. That's not an exaggeration, that's an actual fact.
*Cole Hamels inability to shutdown the team's biggest rival.
*The umpiring against the Phils lately. Not only have calls not gone our way, apparently MLB issued a memo that all Phillies coaches that show the slightest bit of anger are to be immediately ejected, despite if they have a decent gripe or not.
