May We Have The Next Victim, Please…

The surgery was complete.  Cole Hamels and his deft work have sent the Cincinnati Reds’ gloves and bats into cold storage, as if scoring only four runs, making six errors and hitting lower than the famous Mario Mendoza – as a team – wasn’t embarrassing enough.

Your Philadelphia Phillies will now face the San Francisco Giants, who beat the Atlanta Braves thanks to a major mood swing and Brooks Conrad’s Swiss Cheese defense. First game Saturday (10/16) at 7:57 PM EDT, and we’ll see Roy Halladay on nine days rest against Tim Linscomb, working on eight days rest. If we think Halladay was dangerous on eight days of rest, what do you think he can do for an encore with one extra day?

    Great post bud! I wish that we could have seen the Reds-Phillies series more competitive, but I think it’s a testament as well to how good the Phillies are. I’m not really sure that any of the Giants, Braves, Rays, Rangers and Yankees stand a chance in a 7 game series against the depth of this Phillies squad. It is going to be a very interesting post-season for Major League Baseball, and as a fan wouldn’t a Yankee-Phillie world series be the icing on the cake? Also, you think you could check out my blog cuz I really wanna hear your thoughts.
