Happy Easter Phillies Phans
*The Phillies pitching staff has allowed the 2nd fewest runs (68) in the Majors. That's good for a 3.10 ERA and a ginormous slice of the pie why the Phils have a MLB best 14-6 record.
*Ryan Howard has been the main source of RBI the past 2 games, but the man has 2 4-strikeout performances in this series already. Over/Under for today's game set at 3 K's.
*Missing Brad Lidge? You shouldn't be. Jose Contreras (5) and Ryan Madson (2) have been perfect in save opportunities.
*Raul Ibanez has zero hits in his last 18 at bats. Do we see Mayberry R.F.D. in LF today?
*Props to Pete Orr, who is proving to be useful. I love his hustle too. Hustle, as in all out play, not drug dealing.
*I am proud to announce my WSBGMs Phantasy baseball team (Suck My Bocock) leads the league in Howards with 3 (culprits- Gaby Sanchez, Matt Kemp, and Hunter Pence).
*Doc is set for redemption, wanting to quickly erase the bad taste left in his mouth from his last outing. If the Phils score their typical 3 or 4 runs, I'm thinking it's time to bust out the Legion of Broom...
