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...
