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, […]
Seeing highlights of Nationals’ pitcher Stephen Strasburg from yesterday’s game against Detroit bummed me out just a little. I love watching great pitchers do their thing, and it’s especially exciting to see young pitchers like Strasburg break into the bigs and blow hitters away. But I’m just a bit bummed out, because he’s in the Mets’ division and will most likely be facing our team a lot over the next few years. I’m bummed out […]
If first impressions are important to baseball fans in Philadelphia, new Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay aced his entry exam. Halladay got the Grapefruit League schedule unde way with two near-perfect innings in the Phillies’ 3-2 win over the New York Yankees on Thursday. The 32-year-old Halladay threw a pair of innings while striking out three. As we all know, Halladay was at the front of a blockbuster four-team set of trades in December between the Phillies, Toronto Blue […]
The Philadelphia Phillies have added another pitcher to their staff, signing Danys Baez to a two-year contract pending a physical. The 32 year old Baez missed all of the 2008 season due to tightness in the elbow which required Tommy John surgery, yet he returned in 2009 and went 4-6 with a 4.02 ERA in 59 appearances last season with the Baltimore Orioles. Baez has 114 career saves including a career-high 41 saves for the Tampa Bay Rays in […]
There’s not much to be happy about this post season, especially where Mets fans are concerned. We have had to endure a World Series that was the culmination of our worst nightmares. No other matchup could have been worse for us than the one that is currently playing out in Citizens Bank Park. The grizzly matchup between the Yankees and Phillies has even spawned hundreds of Mets blogs advocating who we should root for as if […]
