It's currently in the 30's and raining/snowing in Philadelphia. Fortunately, weather.com says that by 1:00 the chance of precipitation is only 25% and the temp should be a balmy 45 degrees.
Despite only a few games yesterday, two "Howards" were accomplished. The first was by Royal Mike Aviles. The second was by me personal hero and WSBGMs Hall of Famer, Pat Burrell. Speaking of Burrell, did everyone get to see these Burrell pics from over the summer? If not, enjoy:
The Phillies announced yesterday that they will be accepting the Harry Kalas statue that has been put together by a few fans and supported by many more. The location of the statue relative to the park or the time of unveiling is still to be determined. You can see the statue at www.harrykalasstatue.com.
Doc Halladay v. WSBGMs Hall of Famer Brett Myers, 1:05, ESPN
Advantage for the Astros: Bill Hall is motivated. See the story here. Unfortunately, Hall won't get his revenge on Hamels but maybe he will take it out on Halladay...
Advantage for the Phillies: Myers is 9-13 in April and hasn't given up less than three runs in his first start of the season since 2005. (*The Phillies lost that Myers start in 2005 after Todd Worrell gave up 4 runs in 1/3 an inning.)
Enjoy the start of the 2011 baseball
