Don't Get Bent Outta Shape

Closer day-to-day with a bum knee; no sweat. Ace of the staff returns from screaming line drive assault and battery to sprain ankle while fielding; no big deal. 5 game winning streak; freaking awesome!

Okay, having Brad Lidge and Cole Hamels nicked up is not a good thing, but I don't think it's anything to panic over either. Lidge should be available come Friday, and Hamels has already said he expects to make his next start. Relax everyone, and enjoy the wild ride that is the 2009 season.

Chase Utley and Raul Ibanez are duking it out for honors of April MVP. Utley- .357 avg, 1.142 OPS, 18 r, 7 hr, 20 rbi, 2 sb. Ibanez- .355 avg, 1.142 OPS, 20 r, 5 dbl, 7 hr, 17 rbi, 3 sb. Those two are pretty unbelievable right now in terms of hotness, and I speak of their bats not looks (leave that for Wheels). Speaking of hot, what the hell has gotten into Pedro Feliz?

Phils go for their second straight sweep tonight with Brett Myers facing nemesis Scott Olsen. If they win tonight, Amaro may have to sign old friend Antonio Alfonseca to a minor league deal so he can walk around high-sixing everyone.





Oops, almost forgot the Golden Girls...

From Phillies.com-
The Phils entered Tuesday hitting an NL-best .571 (12-for-21) with the bases loaded. The Phillies have three grand slams (Shane Victorino, Ryan Howard and Raul Ibanez) and nine bases-loaded walks.

Once the Golden Girls streak ends, what's next? Designing Women? Kate and Ally? Oh...I know. Golden Palace- the Golden Girls spin off.


BTW, those bases loaded stats are sick! Like swine flu/wear a Michael Jackson mask around those guys kind of sick.

GM-Carson said...

Never was a Kate and Ally fan, and although I did watch Designing Women from time to time, not really a fan of that either. Maybe we'll start an ALF campaign instead.

ALF? Now that's a show I'm down with.

This Golden Girls stuff is serious business I was going to mention it on the blog but I don't want to yet because I might jinx it.

GM-Carson said...

There's no jinxing the Golden Girls, they're too hardcore for that weak stuff.

Jay Ballz said...

The best thing about Golden Girls was how they'd use the same guest star to play different roles.

Like investigative reporter Enrique Mas, played by Chick Vennera (I had to look that up), who was also Pepe, the foreign boxer guy. They used the same actors all the time for different roles. Silly '80's shows...

The grandmom looks insane in that picture.

Shouldn't Lidge not rush back?

And I hope GG continues. Like I said before, the Flyers didn't stop Kate Smith because of one loss.

Golden Girls are on TV each night on the Hallmark Channel.


Pedro Feliz is a man on a mission this year.

Bob D said...

Could the Golden Girls propell the Phils into 1st place tonight?

GM-Carson said...

Last year WSBGM's had Campaign Cheer (CC) and this year we have the Golden Girls (GG).

I need to check if I have the Hallmark Channel.

GM-Carson said...

Hey Brett, throw some friggin' strikes!

Bob D said...

What almost wasn't: Utley- .357 avg, 1.142 OPS, 18 r, 7 hr, 20 rbi, 2 sb. Utley wasn't suppose to be back with the team until May 1st (Friday). WOW

Dr. Steve said...

Why is Taschner on the team

Zach said...

You didn't put enough emphasis on the Golden Girls tonight!

Bob D said...

does this mean no more GG?

whens Alf on?

David said...

Day after Rollins predicts he will hit .400

4/29 vs. Nats- Rollins 2-5

That's .400 baby!

GM-Carson said...

1 run, that's all they scored 1 damn run?
