Costly Mistakes

Costly Mistakes:
*Wes Helms appeared to be struck out looking on a 2-2 pitch, but the umpire missed the call. 3-2 offering sent into orbit for a 3-run homerun.

*3-0 pitch to Ronny Paulino over the heart of the plate with runners on 1st & 2nd with 2 outs and the light hitting pitcher Chris Volstad on deck (lifetime 4-46, .087 avg). Paulino laced pitch into the outfield for a rbi single.

*Jimmy Rollins got greedy and attempted to take 2nd base on an errant throw to 1st and was gunned down by Ronny Paulino. Later that inning Ryan Howard went deep.

*Shane Victorino was caught stealing in the 9th after being walked by Matt Lindstrom with Matt Stairs at the plate.

The Phillies suck at home (8-13), but are road warriors (16-6). They remain a 1/2 game up on the Mets, who are playing the Nationals. Need a strong outing from Blanton tonight and the offense to spark some support for him against Andrew Miller. Looks like Mother Nature might win tonight's battle though.

the last 3 of those 4 really bothered me

GM-Carson said...

The blown "Strike 3" call with Helms blast following didn't bother you?

GM-Carson said...

I know I shouldn't be, but I'm pissed that Raul Ibanez is only 6th in outfield voting for the All-Star game. That cock goblin Manny Ramirez is 4th for shits sake.

Has Fat Joe shown up so far tonight or what? Have I mentioned lately how glad I am that Raul is in there instead of Pimp Patty B. Don't get me wrong I liked Pat as much as the next heterosexual male but the added speed, defense, 90+ points on the batting average is great. Ashamed we were not able to get this guys 5 years ago.

GM-Carson said...

Ibanez gets better with age.

Blanton is good tonight, thankfully.

GM-Carson said...

That 1st error of the season was a bitch for Howard. Here comes Lidge...

GM-Carson said...

F.U. Wes Helms.

What the Fuck was that Bullshit in the 9th inning tonight????

When it's 5 nothing and you have out and nobody on base just fucking throw strikes!!! WTF Durbin.

Then Fucking Eyre comes in throws 3 straight balls
Then can someone please teach Ryan Howard to throw the ball overhand and not like Kent Tekulve to 2nd base.
Then Lidge fucking comes in and throws 4 straight balls to the fastest guy on there team representing the tying run!!!!!

Fuck!!! Can they ever just let me enjoy a god damn baseball game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
