kinda feels like kyle kendrick's ERA is gonna end up over 4 by the time he's out of this game.

Not according to Gameday -- 0 earned runs, thanks to MiniMart's error.

The Return of the Bad KK. Steags, you might be right after all. :(

i think schwimer's throwing a screwball here. it looks like he's throwing two breaking balls, one, a traditional slider, and another which definitely has some armside fade to it.


his fastball is thoroughly unimpressive, though. it doesn't have great velocity, he looks like he's having trouble locating it, and it doesn't really move.

it's not so much that i need to see consistent excellence from a pitcher, but it's just really annoying to watch kendrick pitch. line drives to all fields, hard groundballs hit through the infield, frequent deep counts leading to a high number of walks, capped off by the all-to-frequent 3 run homerun.


i know there's a place for kendrick on a major league roster, but i really wish it wasn't on this one.

Nobody cares what you think, shitty Phillies announcer.

Though I should probably be more specific... they're all pretty shitty.

Just ran into Gary "Sarge" Matthews in hallway. He said: "Tell them the Sarge said it--The Mets are crybabies. That's why they lose."

Except that the Phillies announcers are actually shitty and the Phillies whine about balls and strikes far more than the Mets whine about anything.

Take that, terrible attempt at trolling Phillies fan person!

the radio guys aren't bad. it's the television crew that is bad enough to make you bleed out your ears.
and the Phillies whine about balls and strikes far more than the Mets whine about anything.
there were some really bad calls that shut the team down in the late innings, but polanco didn't ground into a double play in the 8th because of them.

Take that, terrible attempt at trolling Phillies fan person!
i'm just having some fun here. hell, i even managed to make it through the whole series without pointing out that jose reyes will be a phillie/yankee/redsock by january 1.
