Series Preview- Last One of 2012

Philadelphia Phillies (80-79) @ Washington Nationals (96-63)

Pitching Matchups:
Monday, 7:05- KK the Mediocre vs. Harry Wang
Tuesday, 7:05- Tyson Brummett vs. Gio "Was Phillies Property" Gonzalez
Wednesday, 1:05- UnluckLee vs. Not Stephen Strasburg

To Watch For:
*The Phillies to win 2 games to secure a 10th consecutive winning season.

*The fierce battle for team lead in RBI (J-Roll and Chooch tied with 68 apiece).

*Juan Pierre speeding towards 40 stolen bases (currently with 37).

*Chase Utley to hit career homerun #200 (sitting on 199).

*Tyson Brummett's MLB debut, taking the place of Tyler Cloyd (forearm tightness).  Brummett has bounced in and out of the rotation over his 6 minor league seasons and owns a 4.52 ERA/1.37 WHIP over 640.2 IP with a 26-47 record.  Needless to say, nothing to get your hopes up about here.

*A Beltway showdown for the 2012 The Howard title between Washington's Ian Desmond and Ryan Zimmerman and Baltimore's Mark Reynolds and Matt Wieters (tied with 3 apiece).

I really want to play a role with this team in 2013.

Another guy that better be part of 2013's plan is Kevin Frandsen.

Michael Martinez sucks. Everyone but Amaro and Manuel knows it. Hell, Martinez himself knows how much he sucks. That's why he's always smiling. He can't believe he's actually on a MLB team.

Mini Marts contract is a bigger rip off than Adam Eaton or David Bells combined
