Joe, Jimmy, & Pat

Pop the top and let the champagne flow! The Phillies disposed of the Brewers yesterday in grand fashion, starting with a leadoff kick in the teeth by Jimmy Rollins, followed by brilliant pitching from Joe Blanton and two yard-jobs by Pat The Bat Burrell. The victory secured the Phils their first playoff series since 1993 when they took out the Big 3 of John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, and Greg Maddux of the Atlanta Braves. Goal 1 (make playoffs) and Goal 2 (win NLDS) accomplished. Bring on Manny, bring on Bowa, bring on L.A.! Brace yourself Dodgers, because here comes the Phillies.

I agree that we're going to beat the pants off the Dodgers...although I really don't care to see Manny's bare ass.

Hay guyz I'm Doctor Steve.

GM-Carson said...

Dr. Steve- what the hell was that about? We can see you're Dr. Steve because that's what your name says.

Today in Phillies history:
1993- In Game 1 of the NLCS, Kim Batiste drove in John Kruk for the winning run in the 10th inning. Batiste had committed an error at third base in the ninth inning, allowing the Braves to tie the game.

Good Jayson Stark article sining the praises of Jimmy and Pat.

who said Phils in 4? who?

that's right I did.

GM-Carson said...

You know Fox and other media outlets are hoping for a Dodgers/BoSox World Series...ugh!

Go Phils!

Yep.. for those of you who thought the TBS broadcast was biased against the Phillies, FOX will be a whole new demon.

GM-Carson said...

Honestly, I could care less about the biased a-hole announcers, just as long as the Phils make them eat their words.

Soss said...

ESPN too. The Phillies are never the first story. Today, they started with the BoSox, then did a few football games, and THEN did the Phillies highlights.

Hey, I was at Game 1 of the '93 NLCS! The Vet had its moments ...

And does anybody remember Sixto Lezcano?

GM-Carson said...

Of course we remember good ol' Sixto. And of course the Vet had its momements, Corey and I loved that damn dump.

Fox at least pretends to get excited when the Phillies rack of runs, instead of making excused for the pitcher, saying it was a good pitch and that the batter just got lucky, and then insulting the batter for being cold lately and saying how great the pitcher has been all season, then going on to say how good the opposing team has been all season, and how talented they are and how they will just get more talented, all the while the PHILLIES ARE RACKING UP RUNS AND DOMINATING THE GAME.

Fox will at least say one nice thing about how Howard is in Subway commercials before going on to do the above. And thats all we can ask.
