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.
