Phillies Only Unbeaten Team in NL...Or Should Be

The Phillies could be looking at a 5-0 record right now, with the opportunity to complete their second sweep of the season with a victory today over the Cubs.  Of course, due to bullpen woes, that is not the case and instead sit at 3-2.  Papelbon is going to blow saves every once in awhile, even Mariano Rivera did that from time to time.  However, the way he went about his meltdown in the 9th inning in Texas and lack of responsibility for the loss is what has the ire of Phans (including me).  It's early in the season yet, so lets cut him a break and hope that another blown save doesn't happen until further down the line.

Early Positives:
*Saint Utley- still one of the best 2nd basemen in baseball.
*Chooch knows how to get on base.
*Howard is striking out, but he's getting base knocks too.
*Ben Revere is fast.
*Starting pitching, outside of Lee's Opening Day dud, has been solid.

Early Negatives:
*Have relied too much on Jayson Nix.
*Bullpen is not good.  A healthy Mike Adams will help that.
*Not sure Cody Asche is an everyday player.
*Ben Revere has less power than a dead 9-volt.

New Way to Buy Tickets:
ScoreBig.com is the site to go to for deals on tickets, from MLB games to musicals.  They cover all cities around America and offer great prices on hard to get tickets.  For example, I was able to score 4 tickets to the Red Sox/Twins game in June for only $100.  That's well below face value, it's a steal!

Had to change the title of this post from "MLB" to "NL", because I forgot about the 4-0 Detroit Tigers. Oops.

Rain forecast, so they called it in advance. Still strange.

Bob McClure has been getting some good exercise walking out to the mound this week.

8 runs surrendered to the Cubs? It normally will take them 4 games to score that, let alone 1 game.
