Game Time- Point Break

Both Vic and Chooch sit, but for different reasons. Shane is still feeling ill, while Ruiz has a bum wrist. Hopefully both will be back in the lineup Sunday, but for tonight we get the Francisco Treat and Bako Bits.

Rich, you are a good man. We could surely use some extra cash flow.

What the hell? Now Pedro is hurt.

We're not going to have any players left worth playing come playoffs.

Hurt: Pedro, Happ, Romero, Ruiz, Eyre.

Limited: Myers (heard he's having arm pain when pitching too much). Still don't know what Condrey has. Lidge has apparently had blisters.

According to Scott Lauber of The Wilmington Journal, 37-year-old reliever Scott Eyre is considering retiring after this season.

Eyre was diagnosed with a "loose body" in his left elbow earlier this week and plans to undergo surgery in the offseason to repair it. If his rehab doesn't run smoothly, he's likely to hang up the cleats. Eyre has posted an impressive 1.61 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over 28 innings out of the Phillies' bullpen this year, holding left-handed hitters to a .207 batting average.

He has a 4.24 career ERA, 1.52 WHIP and four saves over 12 major league seasons.

*I remember a story about this a few months ago, so it certainly seems he's serious.

Yeah, we can now bury this Swayze thing! This winning streak was making this go on as long as Michael Jackson's burial.
