I don't think there is any need to recap the game last night. We all saw what happened. Let's all try to forget and enjoy Roy Halladay today. So, in other news...
Seven innings. Three hits. Zero runs. Zero walks. Eight Ks. Three hours of me crying when I read the box score this morning.
"I was a little upset and went downstairs to cool off and I slipped on the (stairs) on the way down and that just set me off. There was a chair at the end of the stairs. I tried to kick it over and I caught my toe underneath the chair instead of on top… bad timing for sure."
I hope his toe falls off. Maybe it will be good luck. Ronnie Lot lost part of his pinky finger and he had a Hall of Fame footall career, maybe a partial toe amputation will kick start the closing career of the next Mo Rivera, because you know who isn't closing games for the Phillies right now...
Charlie Manuel - “Lidge needs work.” Yeah, I'd say so.
The little third baseman with the giant head has certainly cooled off. He is 6 for his last 45.
Biggest bullpen disappointment? Baez is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA. Granted, I don't have his BABIP or HR:FB numbers, so maybe he's just a little unlucky like Cole Hamels.
Frenchy made BaseballAmerica.com's Prospect Hot Sheet this week after a good start for Reading. I'm sure this makes the Cliff Lee trade all worth it now. Bask in the HotSheet glow you trade apologists.
Interesting read on BaseballAmerica.com [again] about the Lakewood Blue Claws. Read it, yo.
