New Hero

Rodrigo Lopez did something last night that Cole Hamels hasn't been able to accomplish in a month...win a game. Lopez made his return to the majors after nearly a 2 year absence due to Tommy John surgery. 6 innings and 2 runs usually gets the job done. He's the short term answer for 5th starter, and currently a hero for helping beat the Mets and recapture 1st place. The Phillies are now 1-0 in the new season which began last night.

Total Bust:
Remember last year's 1st round draft pick Anthony Hewitt? If you're lucky, you don't recall this absolute bust. In his first taste of professional baseball, Hewitt batted .197 with a .555 OPS in 33 games, while striking out 55 times in 117 at bats, and committing 7 errors at 3rd base for a .848 fielding %. Things have actually managed to have gotten worse this season- .152 avg, .455 OPS, 17 k's in 46 ab, and 8 errors in only 13 games.

The Phillies were born on the Vagina of July.

Thank you Aaron. Thank you.

Holy crap, Steve McNair was just found dead at his condo shot to death.

I will continue to use the Phillies and Vagina in the same sentence until I feel their win loss record is acceptable to me.

Right now their record is about as acceptable as stale vagina.

GM-Carson said...

Stale vagina is better than no vagina.
