Uribe Leads Giants to World Series

It’s always a tough pill to swallow. Brad Lidge knows it and now Ryan Madson knows it. Juan Uribe took Madson deep with two outs in the eighth inning to make it a 3-2 game. Then San Francisco’s bull pen held the lead to give the Giants their first trip to the Fall Classic since … Continue reading Uribe Leads Giants to World Series

Stayin’ Alive

And the Phillies are going back home to. With the mantra, “one game at a time,” the Phils took game five and made it a 3-2 NLCS with a huge win Thursday night, 4-2. Roy Halladay and Tim Lincecum did battle again. But it was the three-run third inning for the Phils that put Lincecum … Continue reading Stayin’ Alive

SF: Here’s Your Sign

“What a classless bunch if idiots!” “Those people in Philadelphia are horrible people!” “City of Brotherly Love my ass!” I’m sure you heard it all after how “classless” our fans were during the first two games of the NLCS for their signs for Tim Lincecum and former fan favorite Pat Burrell. Well for those who … Continue reading SF: Here’s Your Sign

Lincecum Just A Little Better

The pitching duel had a third party involved: home plate umpire Derryl Cousins. Cousins was erratic as Tim Lincecum was able to best Roy Halladay as the Giants took game one of the best-of-seven series, 4-3, Saturday night. Squeezing both pitchers and hurting batters AB’s on both sides of the plate Cousins made it difficult … Continue reading Lincecum Just A Little Better

Halladay’s Season

When the trade went down back in December, Phillies fans were left with two questions. The first was why would they trade away Cliff Lee? There was never a clear answer other than they wouldn’t be able to sign him and it was a move to restock the farm system. The second question was how … Continue reading Halladay’s Season

Late Inning Rally Sparks Win

Jayson Werth had a lot at stake during his two-out, bases-loaded, ninth-inning at-bat. The Phillies were trailing 4-1. Werth was 0-3 and in danger of ending his 20-game streak of reaching safely was in jeopardy and the Phillies were on the verge of getting swept by the Giants and dropping four straight games. Werth came through with the big three-run double to tie … Continue reading Late Inning Rally Sparks Win

An All-Around Ugly Loss

Whatever is wrong with the Phillies, it needs to stop now. Jamie Moyer pitched okay and the offense made Todd Wellemeyer look like Tim Lincecum as the Phillies lost 6-2 Tuesday night. This was the first time the Phillies were NOT in first place in the NL East since May 29, 2009. Moyer (2-2, 5.25) wasn’t bad at all. He went six … Continue reading An All-Around Ugly Loss
