Last evening on the 25th of September, Minnesota Twins' thirdbaseman Danny Valencia committed the first Double Howard. 2 errors, 2 homeruns, and 2 strikeouts in the same game. Quite the accomplishment. Fantastic. I was so overjoyed by this that I had to give Mr. Valencia his own post on a Phillies blog and nearly awarded him with 2 Howards for the same game...nearly. The 2010 Year Of The Howard is almost over with only a week left to play in the regular season, and Ryan Howard and Mark Reynolds sit atop the standings with 5 Howards apiece. You best be rootin' for The Big Piece to notch another one this season to claim sole position of what is rightfully his...that and Howards equal wins for the Phillies.
Hamels was bad. Madson was bad. Durbin was bad, which made KK look bad. The offense was bad. Really, it was a letdown. The Phils could have wrapped everything up this weekend, but instead squandered the opportunity. I'd bitch more, but they are fresh off an 11 game win streak, so I'll be easy on them...for today.
