Whether the Weather...

The meteorologist computer nerds over at Weather.com have the following forecast for today in Philly- tons of freakin' rain! Seriously, they have a 100% chance of precipitation (likely to be rain, doubtful to be cats & dogs during this time of year), with the temperature around 60 (degrees Fahrenheit, that would boil skin if Celsius). However, looks like the storm will be rolling out of town between 7 and 8 pm, meaning game 3 should still be safe for tonight with Grand Pappy Moyer looking to baffle the young Rays and Matt Garza looking to get lit up by the Phils offense like a Cuban Cigar.

Word from Victorino:
"It is great to be back in Philadelphia. I hope everyone has their white towels unpacked and ready to go. We're ready to go. It seems like it's been a while since we played a game at Citizens Bank Park.

You guys are going to get loud and we'll appreciate every cheer you make. It was pretty loud in St. Pete, but you guys can do a lot better than that. I'm sure you realize how big a part you can play in this.

At one game apiece, we feel that we have home-field advantage. We have to win three more games, and we'd love to sweep here and celebrate with you.

We're really looking forward to it."

The following are a collection of some inspirational quotes Rays' esteemed manager Joe Maddon has put up in the Tampa Bay clubhouse:
*9 = 8. (Manuel's a big proponent of this type of mathematics too.)
*Losing isn't bad if you have fun doing it.
*Failure is in the eye of the beholder.
*Wear thick-rimmed glasses, it makes you appear more intelligent than you are.
*Baseball is not hitting, pitching, and fielding, it's a white leather round thing with red stitching.

Phils angry about World Series introductions or lack thereof.

Maria said...

Well they should be. Do you think they'd announce all of them tonight?

GM-Carson said...

Wow, today is really a dead Saturday. Hopefully the Phils liven it up a bit tonight. I just woke up from an afternoon nap so that I can stay up to watch the entire game tonight...damn games start too late!

* COOCH!!! *

GM-Carson said...

Chooch is the World Series MVP so far.

Speaking of MVP's, Ryan Howard continues his struggles and Burrell is still hitless. 2-1 is okay because we're leading, but a few more runs would be nice.

Jamie Moyer is vintage tonight.

GM-Carson said...

Go Chase Go! Thank you...more please.

Nice bomb Howard, back-to-back is nice.

Blood is in the water boys, circle up for a Rays feast!

GM-Carson said...

An ump blows yet another call that costs the Phils big. This time the 1st base ump called Crawford safe when he was out. Crawford went on to score, and so did Navarro. If Crawford had been properly called out, no runs would have scored. F'n umps!

Aaron said...

FUCK YOU WERTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HE'S DONE I DON'T WANNA SEE HIM TOUCH THE FIELD FOR THE REST OF THE SERIES FOR ANY REASON EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THE FUCKING UMP COST US TWO MORE FUCKING RUNS TONIGHT!!!!

FUCK FUCK FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aaron said...

EVERY GAME LOOKS THE SAME.

WE GET A SHITTY CALL FROM THE UMPS THAT COST US RUNS.

HOWARD STRIKES OUT WITH A MAN ON 3RD AND 1 OUT.

ROLLINS CANT GET THE BALL OUT OF HIS GLOVE.

WERTH GETS PICKED OF SECOND

RUIZ THROWS A BALL AWAY TO TIE THE GAME.

VICTORINO GETS CALLED OUT ON A BALL AT HIS NECK.

THIS IS CLASSIC PHILADELPHIA SPORTS TEAM IN A CHAMPIONSHIP BULLSHIT!!!

Grandpappy Moyer Please Sign a 4 Mil Year to Year Contract till you have 300 Wins.

SirAlden said...

I know I am a homer, but it really seems that this year the Phillies had been the Victim of more game changing bad umpiring calls, I wish someone could go back and track the stats.

CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aaron said...

Here is my game 3 summary.

Moyer is my hero, that man deserves to win the world series more anybody ever!

Chooch officially has ice water in his veins.

Werth needs to put some super glue on the bench and sit on it.

And Finally somebody on the Rays is blowing the umpiring crew. No doubt about it. Aren't the Umps in the series supposed to be the best of the best?????

2 wins to go, 2.

Jacobin said...

The umps have been horrid. Tonight the douche bag at first base cost Moyer the win... how often do you see a 45 year old make that kind of athletic play? Not to mention Howard didn't screw up the catch... though we may be onto something here, perhaps he'd be better if he stopped using the glove.

TWO MORE WINS!!!

GM-Carson said...

Cliche alert...a win is a win.

ripjgarcia said...

Let us think.. ump screwed it up..

Then the Phillies screwed it up by allowing 2 runs without protest..

Then Ruiz, your early hero, gets bold with 2 down..?

Oh yeah then we won...

Moyer, well pitched game...
AWESOME EFFORT!

Offense.. couple of sparks to let us know your alive..

And yes, we still won..
