Howard is #1

Ryan Howard is #1 in your hearts and mine, and also numero uno atop the NL batting average leaders. The Big Piece is batting a robust .524 (11-21). There are doubts that he cannot sustain that for an entire season though. Whatever. Ryan Howard for MVP! Overall the Phillies as a team are batting an impressive .337, which is 2 points behind the Reds.

In other news, Doc Halladay goes in the rubber match this afternoon. On Facebook I posted- "Bullpen gonna be gassed after the craptastic Hamels & Blanton starts. Doc needs to get surgical tomorrow and slice the Mets up for 9 strong." Some genius decided to give me a history lesson on Roy Halladay's nickname of "Doc" and inform me that it has nothing to do with a PHD, rather some gunslinger named Doc Holliday. No shit Sherlock! Apparently that "friend" of We Should Be GMs doesn't understand the concept of a double entendre.

Anyway, lets go Phillies and stuff like that.

You know what I'm looking for (besides a win) is Doc using his defense more than his first outing and being economical with his pitches.

Ryan is raking. Raul is quietly looking great at the plate too.

woo hoo! just checked the 'net and see the phils up 6-0. although doc has thrown 65 pitches through 4 innings. won't get past 7. hopefully they have at least a 10 runs lead to herndon can finish the game.

10 runs, Doc through 7. Baez Sucks in the game. Pretty much what you wanted Corey.

GM-Carson said...

Phils bench doing a great job so far this season. Mayberry is a pinch hittin' fool!

Good call Corey: Herndon finished it, Raul with a bomb and Francisco with yet another just missed HR in the game. If he keeps this up he may end up having a ton of Hrs once it gets warm out. Jason who????

GM-Carson said...

Yeah, "Jason who?" Because our ex-RF was Jayson Werth, not Jason Werth.

Just f'n with ya.
