Clean Slate


"It felt great," Lidge said. "When the postseason starts it's a completely new slate."

Nearing the end of a hard fought 4-hour marathon of a game in freezing weather, most fans did not want to see Brad Lidge trotting to the mound in the bottom of the 9th inning to attempt a 1-run save. Those of you that popped some NoDoz around the 3rd inning to stay awake were treated to a win and the 1st Brad Lidge save of the 2009 postseason.

Luckily we won't have to stave off slumber tonight to witness the Phillies clinch a date with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS, as the game starts at 6:07. Same match-up as game 1, with Ubaldo Jimenez going for the Rox and Cliff Lee for the Phightins.

So glad the game is at 6 today. No way I'm making it past 10 tonight, I'm tired as hell.

GM-Carson said...

Reports have Chan Ho Park being ready to be added to the roster for the NLCS should the Phils win. I imagine he'll take Bastardo's spot.

10 is way too late for a baseball game. But I don't remember West Coast games in any sport starting at 10 going to 2 AM before.

ANYWAY, anyone know if this offseason there's some talented and young relief pitchers? I know Eyre is retiring anyway.

Jesus F'ing Christmas....
Does every damn Rockies at bat have to take half an hour with runners all over the bases.?????

I can't take this shit can we just have one 1-2-3 inning today??? please???????

Bases loaded one out
Werth stikes out on a ball in the dirt
Ibanez swings at ball 4 and k's.

Great work Phils. Real good.

GM-Carson said...

Bases loaded again with 1 out and Feliz swings at the 1st pitch for a pop-out, then Ruiz follows with a weak groundout. They better not lose the damn game, because they've certainly had the opportunities to notch some runs on the board tonight well above the 2 they have.

Inning would have been over without a run had Jimmy made the f'n play.

Wow. I love the win but hate the rate at which my heart beats. Cardiac saves are killing me.

I just did the wheeler shuffle for 5 minutes straight. And am very close to a heart attack. Screw you carlos gonzalez, tulo, and torrealba

GM-Carson said...

I went from semi-happy most of the game, to mad, to fuming, to complete blithering idiot, to excited, to happy, to now calm.

Never a doubt!

Fuck you very much for the heart attack sandwich Phils.
