Their Freddy Galvis:
Austin Kearns is 0-2. A few pitchers don't have hits. Gaby Sanchez is 1-12 and Hanley Ramirez is 2-15, but I foresee those players getting a few hits in the near future.
Their Danys Baez:
Closer Heath Bell gave up 2 runs to the Reds yesterday and his ERA sits at a cool 13.50. No other bullpen member has blown up yet.
Their JD Drew:
Lots of unlikable guys to choose from here. There's Jose Reyes who loves to showboat when his team is losing and 15 games back in the standings. There is Carlos Zambrano who likes fighting with teammates then
What We're Drinking:
Corey - Beefeater gin and club soda. At 94 proof, it's got that little something extra, namely more alcohol than typical spirits. A 'beefeater' is a ceremonial guardian at the Tower of London. I took a tour of the Tower of London led by a beefeater. It was pretty cool. I saw where Ann Bolyen got beheaded. They didn't give me gin at the end of the tour, which was disappointing.
Carson - Goat Rodeo Brewing's "The Bunny Hop". Created from a carrot cake recipe and adapted it to the brewing process and the rest is history. A nut brown ale as the base with cascade hops, carrots, raisins, toasted coconut and walnuts, vanilla extract, a stick of cinnamon, and lactose (to serve as the "icing"). Perfect for the season/holiday.
What We're Listening To:
Corey - Lucero - "Women & Work" - Memphis rockers Lucero released their latest album three weeks ago. They'll be at the Abbey Bar in Harrisburg (upstairs at Appalachian Brewery) April 24th. I have my tickets. If you live in the area and like real rock & roll, don't miss this show.
Carson - Sarge, T-Mac & Wheels. Yes, I hate myself.
Magic Number Watch:
The Phils are not in first place. :(
This sucks. But don't worry, I have something that will make you smile... or vomit. Remember when Scott Stapp (Creed) did the Marlins theme song? I do. Have a listen.
Maybe it's the crystal meth talking, but I have a good feeling about this series. Phils take the first two behind OGP and Doc and finish the series at .500. Lock it up.
