Vance Worley will out pitch Halladays perfect game: 10 ip 30 ks 99 pitches all for strikes, hits walk off grandslam in the 10th. He is the future.

Report was KK was roughed up early because he only had his lucky boxers on and lucky horse shoe in his back pocket, and had forgot his lucky rabbits foot in his locker... This clearly left him lacking luck, which we all know is the ONLY cause for his success. No need to dig deeper on this settling down and throwing strikes nonsense.

Who is Polanco guy and why is he so consistent? He doesn't fit the Philly mold...

How tall is Overbeck? If he's 6'2" or taller, he's the future of the Phils at the hot corner.

This Phils team is clearly overrated! We don't even have Cliff Lee and our 3rd baseman isn't tall enough!

crude numbers i put there, but i figured it kind of gets a point across to an extent.

Phillies Seasons: 127 Phillies all time losses: 10,126 Mets Seasons: 48 Mets all time losses: 4,120 So the Phillies have played 2.64583 more seasons than the Mets. Multiply current Mets losses by 2.64583, and you get 10,900.83. Seems like the Mets are on a similar, if not WORSE path then the Phils.

Awesome that Halladay is scheduled to pitch that game, i bought tickets to that game a month ago, 4 rows behind phillies batter circle. Now I'm Psyched.

AWH: I can't disagree with that argument either... I was looking around some other players, it looks like Verlander went through the same situation '08. Mark Prior as well, he fits the injury part. And though I didn't look him up, I'm sure it probably matches Chris Young too.. But I also looked up Peavy, didn't seem to match him. Neither did it seem to screw up Maddux. I'm not disagreeing with the dead arm theory, but I would think that there are ways around it.

Yea, I definitely believe there were many factors to Hamels season last year (he was also expecting a kid all season to, and I'm sure that can be stressful)... I think the best of Cole is still yet to come, and dont expect to see another season like last year any time soon.

NEPP: I dropped Kentucky Joe in my FBB league because he wasn't cuttin it last week. I picked up Moyer instead. He got his first start for me against Boston. Not exactly my best pick up ever.

I think the trade for Cliff compounded things for Cole last year, finally realizing that he wasn't "the ACE" in the rotation anymore and i think it mentally hurt him, causeing him to press more and more to be "the ACE". I think in the long run it has helped him, brought him back down to earth sort of speak. For the most part this year he's pitch damn well with a few exceptions or 'big innings'.

I might be a moron, or this might have been discussed since i haven't read the last threads comments... but did JW get sponsorship from COMCAST? I mean, with that high quality video and all it makes sense to me... I hope this is just the beginning of the new BL!

I am all about bringing up Mathieson and throwing him to the wolves immediately, at the first save opportunity for the team.

G20 probably offered money to MLB to move the game since Halladay coming back to Toronto would get more press coverage than a bunch of sleezy politicians.

Sophist: I believe Halladay got a save in one of those games too... Billingsly: Your right, didn't even think to add in Jimmy's probable numbers.

Off topic, but just read the Phils are 16th in the League for Stolen bases with 10...... Anyone see something wrong with that?
1 reply
I'm not sure what the percentage of ticket sales they would get, but i feel the Jays would make more money by being the away team in a sellout at the Bank than being at home in that empty center... Though, if Roy would start in Toronto that would be a diff situation...
