The NL East is beginning to become a logjam, with the Mets, Marlins, and Braves all withing 4 games of the Phils. The Phillies craptacular play of late has been the reason for this, not because the other teams have played particularly well themselves. Ex-Phillie and forever stud, Pat Burrell, was the man for Tampa Bay last night sealing the deal early with a 2-run shot. In the rubber match tonight the Phightins send Antonio Bastardo to the mound with Andy Sonnanstine going for the Rays. Go Phils!
4 My Homie:
Corey is a huge football fan (round black/white checkered, not brown oblong), so this is for him. In case any of you missed it the USA soccer team beat the world's #1 ranked team Spain in the FIFA Confederations Cup match yesterday 2-0 and are advancing to the finals in Johannesburg on Sunday against the winner of the Brazil/South Africa semifinals match. USA! USA! USA!
