Killing In The Name Of
Rage Against the Machine guitarist and Left Alone frontman are rocking the stage! Raul Ibanez and Carlos Ruiz's bats are like matchsticks, because they're on fire. Raaauuulll is riding a 13-game hitting streak and has taken his AVG/OPS from .236/.711 on July 1st to .275/.798. Chooch just finished up a 8-15 series against the Marlins which included 3 doubles, 2 homeruns, 3 runs scored, and 6 rbi. Overall for the season, Ruiz is batting .298/.838.
*Still befuddled how the Phillies ran themselves into 3 straight outs in the 9th. Ibanez broke for home on contact and was caught in a rundown, Werth was then picked off at 2nd base, followed by a caught stealing by Dom Brown. Bad baseball.
*The Phillies are now an impressive 10-5 in extra inning games.
*Placido Polanco is 2nd in the NL with a .322 batting average. Pedro Feliz- .223. I'm just sayin'.
*JC Romero is wild, this we know. Do you know just how wild he is though? Over the past 2 seasons in 41 innings- 35:29 BB:K. Wow, worse than you thought, right?
*Greg Dobbs is worthless. It took him all of 7 pitches to strike out twice yesterday. He's now 3-36 (.083) as a pinch hitter and is only batting .191 overall. Time to release him and give someone like Andy Tracy, Neil Sellers, or Matthew Rizzotti some PH opportunities.
*Don't forget- Muck the Fets!
*I pity you if you don't understand the reference in the title of this post. But for those of you that are ignorant to kick ass music, here ya go...
