So how does Miguel Cairo have his 2nd and 3rd best seasons in his 15th and 16th seasons?

that's a very horrendous 9th inning for lee.

and i'm not too enthused about madson coming in to get the last out.


but i'd rather be in our position than theirs.

Why not enthused about Madson? Lee was losing it**, phony-ish HBP nonwithstanding. Don't mess around, bring in the fresh arm.

I heard way too much about Lee's 6th shutout that never happened.

** relatively, that is

27 innings played this series, 2 runs allowed.

cliff lee finishes with a 5-0 record and 2 runs allowed in 39.2 innings in the month of august. this is his second month this year with a 5-0 record and an ERA below 1. this is apparently just the third time this has happened since 1900, with the other two occasions belonging to bob gibson in 1968 and walter johnson in 1913.

i'll take it.

The Phils went 35-15 in July & August 2011. They need go only 16-14 the rest of the way to finish with a franchise-record 102 wins.

bastardo is the team's best reliever. with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th and the tying run at the plate, he's the guy i want on the bump.
