Philadelphia Phillies: (28-21; Leader) The Phillies managed to take two out of three from the Marlins. They were shutout on Sunday, but the story of the weekend was Roy Halladay’s perfect game. There’s nothing more that I can say about it that hasn’t already been said on this site. The Phillies will play the Atlanta Braves in Atlanta with first place on the line. Atlanta Braves: (28-22; -.5) The Braves have been hot as of [...]
Philadelphia Phillies: (26-20; Leader) Well, the Phillies became the first league champion to get held scoreless during a sweep. They will head to Florida to try to get someone to cross the plate. They’ve been held scoreless in 46 of the last 47 innings. They are the only first-place team in MLB history to have been swept scorelessly (is that a word?) by the last-place team (at the beginning of the series the Mets were [...]
I wanted to post something before the game and I had a choice to either write something about the trash at Citi Field or some non Mets news that smelled very Phishy. What a choice, huh? I decided to go with the latter, but before I do, I wanted to thank our friends at the uber-cool Real Dirty Mets Blog. for pointing me toward this phoul stench of a story. GravediggerHebner explains: According to many reports, including this one [...]
Philadelphia Phillies: (14-10; Leader) The Philadelphia Phillies took…well, you know what happened. The Phillies are set to open a three game series with the St. Louis Cardinals. Tuesday’s pitching matchup will be Adam Wainwright vs. Cole Hamels. Also, Joe Blanton may come back of the DL this week. Florida Marlins: (13-12; -1.5) The Marlins took two of three from the Washington Nationals on the strength of Hanley Ramirez’s two HR’s in the rubber game on [...]
Philadelphia Phillies: (12-9; -.5) The Phillies lost two of three to the San Francisco Giants, and the game that they won is a case to why pitch counts should be taken with a grain of common sense, On Wednesday, the Giants were leading 4-1 in the 9th with Tim Lincecum (who recorded 11 K’s) still going. Lincecum got the first out in the inning before giving up a walk to Shane Victorino. Lincy was then [...]
Just a little something to set the mood for the huge weekend series against the Phillies. Do you remember how down we all were only two weekends ago? Now we’re the ones that are striking fear down the spines of opposing teams. Baseball is so amazing that way… I have three things that I would love to see from the Mets tomorrow night… #1 – Jon Niese uncorks a high and inside fastball that sends Victorino sprawling to [...]
Philadelphia Phillies: (11-7; Leader) The Phillies dropped two of three to the Arizona Diamondbacks, and will head to San Francisco for a three game set with the Giants. Roy Halladay will start Monday against Jonathan Sanchez. Lincecum will start Thursday, likely against Cole Hamels. Florida Marlins: (10-9; -1.5) The Marlins dropped two of three to the Colorado Rockies, including a split of Saturday’s doubleheader, and will face the hot San Diego Padres. Jorge Cantu’s hit [...]
Philadelphia Phillies: (10-5; Leader) The Phillies took two out of three from the Atlanta Braves. However, they did lose JA Happ to the DL with a strained flexor in his left arm. JC Romero was activated, while Nelson Figueroa will take his spot in the rotation. The Phillies begin a six-game west coast road trip with three in Arizona. Florida Marlins: (9-7; -1.5) The Florida Marlins dropped two of three to the Houston Astros, and [...]
As Mets fans, we don’t get moments like this very often, so in those rare instances when the Phillies make headlines for all the wrong reasons, you really have to relish them. To begin, we already know what a big mouth Jimmy Rollins has, but get a load of what he said while a guest on the Dan Patrick Show. Patrick asked Rollins why the Phillies didn’t elect to keep Cliff Lee. (A loaded question?) “That, [...]
