Honorable Hamels, Red Idiot & Minor Champs

Honorable Hamels:
Cole Hamels = Ol' Girl Parts? Ehh, not so much. The man has been amazing since the All-Star break. Better than Roy Oswalt and better than Roy Halladay...not that they've been slouches by any measure. He's been tough and has looked tough (not that looks win games). Last night was a huge game and he pitched brilliantly. King Cole is primed for the playoffs. Over his past 5 starts- 5 wins and a 0.49 ERA. Since July 10th, 6-3 with a 1.74 ERA. Just imagine if the Phils routinely scored this guy some runs.

Red Idiot:
Players, Coaches, Ball Girls, Umps, and Grounds Crew belong on the field. Douchenuggets in a red spandex body suit do not. Mad props to Braves' Matt Diaz with the take down.



Minor League Champs:

The Lakewood BlueClaws are the Single-A Sally League champions for the second consecutive season. The Phils minor league system has produced enough quality prospects over the past few seasons that's allowed them to trade for Joe Blanton, Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, and Roy Oswalt and almost everyone of those prospects came through Lakewood.

Notes:
*The Phils now have 3 starting pitchers with ERAs below 3 (The Big 3). As Todd Zolecki put it, "In the past, they might have said, 'Well, we've got Cole Hamels out of the way. Now we can get after (insert names here) tomorrow and Wednesday.' Except this time (insert names here) are Roy Halladay and Roy Oswalt."

*Hey, Brad Lidge is still pretty good. He's converted 14 of his last 15 save opportunities and is boasting a 0.91 during that span.

*Doc Halladay goes for win #20 tonight. That's friggin' exciting!

I wonder how the spandexdouchenugget was treated in jail? Come here ole girl parts - oh wait your not him!

Lakewoods was voted best ML team in all of baseball earlier this year too. They are awesome.

A win tonight puts the magic number at 6 I believe. In July, I honestly never thought this possible.

GM-Carson said...

Glad that Werth decided to hit with runners in scoring position finally.
