95-67. NL East Pennant. NL Pennant. Beat the Red Sox in 7 games.

The Brewers rotation will be tough -- Gallardo, Greinke, and Marcum would be a tough three game series. The NL Central should be a knife fight between the Brewers and Reds.* * Great threads on here lately. Unfortunately, for some time I haven't had the time to engage in debates as I used to, but JW and the commenters here still make this the go to place for Phillies commentary. Happy holidays to all.

Bed Beard: Or like on Arrested Development, the Bluth family's boat was called "The Sea Word."

Ed: Nope, it stands for Mike. Are you Ed Wade? Sheesh.

MLB: I am no Wheeler fan, but I refuse to enrich Randy J. Miller by one penny. He's a clown who constantly tries to inject himself into stories rather than write about his subjects. Maybe I'll get the book from the library.

Ted: So you are taking the word of Randy Miller? The guy who badmouthed Harry for years and then did a book signing on the grave? Really? Individual mileage may vary, I guess. mwbbfan: Um, okay, so then what is your excuse for Zagurski on Sunday? Look, I want to pull for Zagurski, I really do. But it's about results and he isn't getting it done. Offense: Yes, the offense needs to step up. First thing I would do, after trading for a 2B/3B/(SS?) bat, is split Rollins and Victorino up in the lineup. When they're well they're hell at the plate, but when Victorino is pulling off everything it makes for a lot of missed opportunities up at the top of the order. Jimmy at least looks like he has a clue at the plate at the moment.

clout: well, the bullpen is further hamstrung by having Herndon and Zagurski out there throwing meaningful innings. Zagurski is looking like a BLOOGY (Bad Lefthanded One Out Guy) and Herndon needs to develop a phantom blister whenever Madson is ready. Madson and Bastardo would be a quantum upgrade. Baez should be a garbage time guy right now.

holes in his game? No such thing to most here NEPP. According to most here there is just a glory hole of adulation that the Prince gets, more often than not deserved, but sometimes not. CJ: I agree. His arm strength is there, but his command and control isn't.

Well, I guess JA isn't ready for prime time. He was activated and sent to AAA according to CBS Sportsline.

clout: Yes, I also wonder what the possible difference could be. Schweitzer and Ak(ili)Smith's commentary of late, along with the constant European Vacation Audrey-like "I miss Cliff!" refrain have made the comments section on this site near unreadable for at least a week.

so we would have traded Michael Taylor for a 1B? We seem to have that right now. Brett Wallace can't play 3B. So can I extrapolate from this you want Big Piece gone, too?

This whole thread reads like the How I Met Your Mother episodes where Ted's pretentious ex-gf Karen comes to town. RAJ needs to get some reinforcements or somethings gotta give! If I read one more deconstruction of the Cliff Lee trade I am going to cyber-choke someone out....

I was going to make a Jesse James joke here, but then I decided against it.

JR King: Maybe we can trade KK for him and finally send him to Japan....

"And so it was... the Phillies began their quest to finally determine if the saying "As Jimmy goes, so do the Phils" carries as much weight as has been prophesied. Posted by: Deutsche Phan | Tuesday, June 29, 2010 at 02:34 PM"

Herr Deutsche: Jimmy will respond like Jessie Owens in `36. Book it.

the Phillies needed a bench upgrade before these injuries, so if RAJ doesn't trade for someone like Wigginton now then he's sending a message to the team.

NEPP: Anger...fear...aggression. The dark side of the Force are they.

thanks Scott. I was sitting in Section 143 and didn't have a good line of sight on the final landing spot of JT's crush.

Thome's moonshot was over the batters eye. Ibanez's HR hit the back railing in the Section 101 seats and ricocheted into the Twins bullpen.

True love is hard to find, sometimes you think you have true love and then you catch the early flight home from San Diego and a couple of nude people jump out of your bathroom blindfolded like a goddamn magic show ready to double team your team...
