Game Time- Rule of King Cole

Hollywood King Cole was a jolly young soul,
And a jolly young soul was he.
He called for his fastball,
And he called for his change-up,
And the hitter was out- strike three.
Every batter he had a bat,
And a batter a strikeout became he.
Oh there's none so rare, as can compare,
With King Cole and his strike three.

Farmhand Gary Majewski is doing well for the Lil' Piggies of the Lehigh Valley. He's got 2 saves and 1.00 era through 7 appearances and 9 innings pitched, but it's this fantastic picture that I truly want to share with you. Strap some goggles on him and he's the Red Baron (which ironically used to be the Phils Triple A affiliates name).

Top of the 3rd already. Phils offense needs to do something against this poor Brewers pitching.

GM-Carson said...

Now 14 straight games to begin the season allowing a homerun. Thanks Cole!

GM-Carson said...

Good news- Cole won't be giving up any more homeruns today.

Bad news- he left the game after getting drilled by a ball off the bat of Prince Fielder.

This sucks!

Andrew said...

wow sucks. he was absolutely cruising (6 Ks through 3 inn) too. One HR was a mistake. He could have gone 9 inn at that pace as long as the Phils scored a few runs. How has Dave 5.88 ERA Bush turned in Cy Bush today?

GM-Carson said...

Apparently the Phils are anti-Bush, they prefer shaven.

GM-Carson said...

Combined record of our opponents so far 29-43, and that includes the crazy/fluke hot start by the Padres. We are pathetic for having such a lousy record.

Andrew said...

really? no hitter through 6 for Bush who has a career 5.88 ERA vs the Phils which includes 10 HR in 33.2 inn!!!

Kotite's Corner said...

Bush if a Philly area guy also. What's the latest on Hamels?

GM-Carson said...

Phils no-hit thru 7 now. Pathetic isn't a strong enough word.

Andrew said...

David Bush = Braden Looper = Tim Redding = Second Coming of Cy Young

sad

GM-Carson said...

Right now they're calling Hamels injury a left shoulder contusion, which essentially equates to a really painful bruise. It'll take a day or two to see what effect it has on him.

GM-Carson said...

Another homerun, now 31 allowed on the season.

GM-Carson said...

Matt Stairs breaks up the no-no and the shutout at the same time. Can we please get him and Dobbs some ab's!

Andrew said...

no hitter over thanks to all-star Matt Stairs!

GM-Carson said...

Jimmy Rollins and his .169 batting average is absolutely infuriating right now.

Andrew said...

why did I draft Rollins in my fantasy league?

GM-Carson said...

Why did I predict he'd bat over .300?

GM-Carson said...

Stairs as a Phillie: 27 ab, 7 r, 9 rbi, 8 h, 1 dbl, 4 hr. Didn't see Geoff Jenkins doing that.

gary looks like a sailor. he should sail.

Mr. A-Hole said...

Cole Hamels sucks, Jimmy Rollins sucks, the Phillies offense sucks, Chad Durbin sucks, this whole team sucks.

Andrew said...

Pujols with a Howard today! Howard hunting is more exciting than watching the Phils play right now.

GM-Carson said...

Tracking "The Howard" is fun. Even if the Phils lose, I look forward to box score watching for anther victim to add to the list.

Mr. A-Hole: Cole was cruising until the homerun and getting pegged by Fielder. I agree J-Roll has sucked this year, but to say the entire team sucks is a bit too far.

Zach said...

I don't know if they are "victims" to be on the Howard list, I mean they did hit a homerun to get there.

Corey said...

best pitching performance this season by a player on the phillies payroll...adam eaton.
