Magic Number Watch

Cole's Triple:
The last Phillies pitcher to hit a triple was Cory Lidle against the Pirates in April of 2006.

Ibanez's Streak:
I was very disappointed to see Ibanez break his hitless streak last night. Carlos Ruiz now has the longest active hitless streak on the team. He is 0 for his last 23.

Interesting note: Ibanez, despite all of his struggles, had as many extra-base hits yesterday that Derek Jeter has had all season. That would be the same Jeter who just got 3 years and $51 million.

Last of Vance?:
Fancy-Pants Vance takes the hill tonight but a week from now he'll probably be pulling on a FeHams hat in Allentown.

Blanton is eligible to come off the DL next Monday and, if all things go well with his throwing this week, he could make his next start then.

Lineup Change:
The Phillies are undefeated and J-Roll and Ibanez are both batting .500 since J-Roll was moved up to first in the order. Granted, the sample size is kind of small, but I don't think it's too early to call this genius-level move by Fuqua a complete success.

If the Phils win 134 more games that would make for 153. That's gotta be a record right?

Ummmm, yes Carson it would be

Cole's triple was awesome. He's been awesome. He has really matured within the last year. His mound composure great. He no longer sulks over bloop hits, missed calls, or fielding errors. He is a man now. Vagina days be gone!

Hamels only stands to get better the older he gets. If he really becomes a student of the game things will turn out very well for him.

raul ibanez? really?

GM-Carson said...

Trade Blanton now. I like Worley.

GM-Carson said...

Yep, Baez Sucks!

Bob D said...

Baez had been lucky so far with bad control, but last night it caught up with him a bit

They have to be clever, cunning, imaginative, dogged and wily, whereas society merely has to lean its weight a little.
The fist rule for making Cheap WOW Gold
is to buy low and sell high. This method works well in Tera Gold
people’s game play.
