Coming home after a highly successful 7-3 road trip, one would expect the Phils to finally begin getting on a roll at home. Problem is, the opponent is the Boston Red Sox and they're at home. Yep, at home the Phils are a pitiful 12-16. 12-16 at home for the defending World Champs, where the fans are friendlier and more supporting than ever. So what gives?
Kyle Kendrick was sent back to the minors, where he should remain for eternity, and Sergio Escalona was called back up for the 88th time this season.
The bullpen is a bit tired after logging something like 127 innings in the past 4 games. Need Happ to go deep into the game today.
Prospect Jason Donald hit the DL, and will soon go under the knife. That's not good.
I hate interleauge play. I don't want to see the AL vs NL until the World Series. Why the hell are the Phils playing almost as many games against the likes of the Yankees and BoSox as they do with their state buddies in the same league Pirates?
