Double Header- Siamese Dream


Double header, double the pleasure? Likely not with the way the Phils are playing. Cole Hamels and Joe Blanton go for the good guys, while the enemy strikes back with RA Dickey and Dillon Gee. Maybe the bats will come alive today. Maybe they won't.

Other Stuff:
*Remember when Jason Grilli was pitching lights out for the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs? Well, he's now twirling his magic in Pittsburgh (26 G, 30.2 IP, 2-1, 8 HLD, 2.43 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, 35 K). Yeah, I'd rather have him in the Phils bullpen during the playoffs than Michael Stutes or David Herndon. Just saying.

*Matt Kemp is on the brink of the NL triple crown. He's 3rd in batting average, tied for the lead in homeruns, and 1st in RBI. Wow!

*This could be a very interesting awards season, because Kemp might get the MVP, while his teammate Clayton Kershaw is likely to receive the Cy Young. MVP and CY from the same team is amazing alone, but from a team that wasn't even close to sniffing the playoffs would be just shocking.

*It appears the Cole Hamels has a medical maladay below. What should he do? Visit a Canadian pharmacy of course.

brad lidge in the 8th inning is a major problem.

Looks like we're going for 7 in a row... MLB record for a team that's clinched? I'm sure Jayson Stark will let us know....

Aaron said...

Jesus titty fing Christmas........pathetic. Nice job by Vic swing at a 2-0 pitch to lead off the 9th. Way to work an at bat buddy. Lidge sucks, rollins sucks polly sucks utley sucks Vic sucks bastardo sucks , stutes sucks, Herndon sucks, mini mart sucks bowker sucks, gload sucks, everyone we called up from the minors sucks.

Andrew said...

I'm just in a state of shock this week that a team as good as they were just a week and a half ago has become just about the worst team in MLB. Shocked.

Phillies' 7-game losing streak is the longest in history after a team had clinched a division or league title. (1987 Twins lost 5 in a row.) Phillies' 7-game losing streak also is the longest in history after a team won its 98th game. 1904 Giants lost 6 straight after winning 104. -Todd Zolecki

Unwatchable.

GM-Carson said...

Funny how a 7 game streak has erased nearly all the good feeling from and otherwise amazing season.

This team loses in the 1st round of the playoff because of no offense. Complete shit.

Andrew said...

Not so fast Carson... looks like its going to be an 8 game streak. Now how do you feel?

Aaron said...

This team Is bullshit. Our offense and bullpen and bench aren't good enough period. I think we win 1 playoff game.

GM-Carson said...

This is the worst "Best" team ever.
