Bruntlett Becomes Historical

Eric Bruntlett had an historically amazing day. Not only did he see his batting average climb from .128 to .154 with a 3-5 day at the plate, he also committed an error in the 9th inning that put our shaky closer on thin ice, but redeemed himself with the 15th unassisted triple play in MLB history to end the game. Let's be honest, he's still a horrible baseball player, but he certainly etched his place in Phillies lore with that play. Phillies won an ugly game 9-7, and that's good enough for me.

Today's starter, Cliff Lee, is aiming for the series win, to stay perfect in the NL, and some hits to get back in the Chasing Bruntlett race (Updated: Lee- 5, Bruntlett- 14).

And don't forget to sign up for the WSBGM's Phantasy Phootball league. Yahoo! league ID is 666979 and the password is phillies. Eight spots remain for this head-to-head league.

Can't there be more spots in the FF if need be?

Corey said...

ryan howard sucks.

The Phillies are allergic to Sac Fly's.

I didn't see the game today until the 7th, but how does Howard suck? He hit 2 homeruns so far for all the Phils runs.

Also, I heard Chase Utley played a routine pop-up into a little league homerun.

GM-Carson said...

I look at the box score and see Cliff Lee with 7 innings pitched and 2 runs surrendered, but both unearned. That is unbelievable how well he's done. 0.68 ERA in 5 starts now.

GM-Carson said...

Phillies are now 72-50.

Cliff Lee as a Phillies: 5 gm, 5 w, 40 ip, 39 k, 0.68 ERA, 0.75 WHIP.

You all will be happy to know that Bruntlet will have his name now in the hall of fame along with his jersey from yesterday.

Werth also named player of week in NL.

Bob D said...

Sorry that should be: Werth was named the NL player of the F***in week.
