Tommy G.!

Hopefully we'll bounce back from last night with a win.
   2. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: May 10, 2006 at 06:23 PM (#2012943)
Madson has been moved back to the bullpen and Hamels is replacing him in the rotation.

9 straight wins, aaron roward 4 mvp + pope b~tches

Madson has been moved back to the bullpen and Hamels is replacing him in the rotation.



Tonight? I thought Hamels was pitching Friday vs. Cincy.
   5. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: May 10, 2006 at 07:36 PM (#2013023)
Hamels isn't pitching until Friday but I assume Madson will be able to pitch today.

2006 Phillies=2005 Nationals?
   7. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 08:30 PM (#2013098)
Phillies vs. Glavine:
Abreu 13-62 6 BB 6 K .279/.258/.537
Burrell 13-46 9 BB 10 K .393/.457/.849
Rollins 17-46 8 BB 3 K .463/.714/1.180 (!)
Bell 8-25 0 BB 5 K .320/.400/.720
Utley 0-5 1 BB 1 K
Howard 0-3 0 BB 2 K
   8. Dr. Vaux Posted: May 10, 2006 at 09:03 PM (#2013142)
See, I'm not actually upset about this, because Hamels is undoubtedly the second-best starter the Phillies have, and Madson isn't likely better than Floyd in a vaccuum. He absolutely should get more of a chance, but the Phillies need Hamels now, and Madson's the one it makes the most sense to drop.

It's nice when teams do something that's defensible, unlike the Mets...
   9. A different Terry Posted: May 10, 2006 at 09:59 PM (#2013207)
I'd still like to see Madson get more of a chance, but if I were in a group making a decision about him I'd be swayed by the logic to move him back to to the 'pen where he's been good over the last few years. The Phils are looking for a bridge to get them back to Wolf--assuming his rehab goes well, and by reports so far it has, another starter decision will get made in July. Just hope to God everybody's lost Paul Abbott's cell phone number.
   10. Benji Posted: May 10, 2006 at 10:56 PM (#2013266)
8 shutout innings for Kazmir. Dammit all.
   11. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:01 PM (#2013273)
c'mon I mean you got victor zambrano in return. it was worth it wasn't it?
   12. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:04 PM (#2013278)
8 shutout innings for Kazmir. Dammit all.

Let the wound heal.
   13. Sam M. Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:10 PM (#2013287)
Let the wound heal.

No, let the heal (Duquette) be wounded.
   14. Sam M. Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:11 PM (#2013289)
Ole!!
   15. Benji Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:12 PM (#2013291)
Wooooooo!
   16. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:13 PM (#2013293)
Thank you Phillies.
   17. AJMcCringleberry Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:13 PM (#2013295)
2-0! Keep it up while I go watch the Devils.
   18. Sam M. Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:13 PM (#2013296)
Phillies defense this inning . . . big yikes.
   19. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:14 PM (#2013299)
i thought it was the mets that had the shoddy defense?
   20. Benji Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:14 PM (#2013300)
Met primates, I have to get my pre-work nap. Root a little harder to make up for my absence.
   21. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:17 PM (#2013302)
arrggh bad audio on mlbtv.com
   22. Sam M. Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:17 PM (#2013305)
i thought it was the mets that had the shoddy defense?

Only when Aaron Heilman is on the mound. Oh, and when the ball is hit to Xavier Nady. Wait, wait, and when Paul Lo Duca has to throw the ball. And when the right side of the infield has to roam to find the ball . . . .

Rats. Never mind.
   23. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:21 PM (#2013316)
hustle next time rollins....
   24. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:21 PM (#2013322)
The Phillies defense actually has been pretty bad from the sabermetric POV.
   25. Sam M. Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:23 PM (#2013328)
Pretty DP!!!
   26. Kiner's Rounded Edge Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:24 PM (#2013332)
That unnecessary barehand by Kaz brings to mind Lou Brown from "Major League" -- "Nice play, Hayes. Don't ever f*in do it again."
   27. Chris Dial Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:26 PM (#2013338)
Nady is pretty unsure of himself out there.
   28. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:29 PM (#2013348)
I hope LA didnt just deliver a jinx.
   29. Chris Dial Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:29 PM (#2013349)
I didn't think the barehand was unnecessary.
   30. Free Rob Base Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:30 PM (#2013353)
I can see the Mets running up the score tonight on Lidle.
   31. Sam M. Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:30 PM (#2013355)
Walk-zuo!!
   32. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:30 PM (#2013356)
i dont like the way this is shaping up...
   33. Raskolnikov Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:31 PM (#2013358)
Anyone else remember back when Kazmir and Hamels were 1 and 1A in terms of the top pitching prospects in baseball? Sigh..
   34. Chris Dial Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:31 PM (#2013360)
Glavine is an excellent bunter
   35. Sam M. Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:31 PM (#2013363)
Geez, Glavine is a beautiful bunter, ain't he?
   36. Raskolnikov Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:32 PM (#2013369)
We should plate 2 runs this inning.
   37. Raskolnikov Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:34 PM (#2013371)
Nice! Lo Duca!
   38. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:34 PM (#2013373)
Lo Duca!!!!!!!!
   39. Sam M. Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:34 PM (#2013374)
Lo Duca picks up Reyes beautifully. Great, great stuff.
   40. Chris Dial Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:35 PM (#2013377)
I look forward to 2 runs per inning.
   41. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:36 PM (#2013381)
message to Paul LoDuca: you don't play for the 2004 Marlins anymore. Quit acting like it.
   42. Raskolnikov Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:37 PM (#2013387)
I'm predicting an early exit for Lidle tonight. He's throwing like crap tonight.
   43. Chris Dial Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:37 PM (#2013390)
I came home from "work" today and watched last night's game. Woo, that was a tough loss.
   44. Raskolnikov Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:39 PM (#2013396)
Mussina's getting hammered. The Mets are putting up runs. The night is off to a promising start.
   45. Chris Dial Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:39 PM (#2013398)
The Mets announcers were ragging on Nady "nt getting to balls with a lot of hangtime" on Dellucci's triple.
   46. Chris Dial Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:42 PM (#2013403)
Glavine "It's a tough lineup all the way through. there's no breaks in there."

He didn't say "I am champing at the bit to get to David GIDP Bell"

So it *MUST* be fact that the Phils lineup is tough, up and down.
   47. Chris Dial Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:43 PM (#2013404)
I imagine a FB or K from Howard and a GDP from Bell.
   48. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:43 PM (#2013407)
Stuck posts appear.
   49. Raskolnikov Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:44 PM (#2013410)
One of these days I'll learn what it is that makes David Bell so appealing to a manager. If there's anyone with "utility infielder" written all over him, it's Bell. Yet, he's started his whole career.
   50. AJMcCringleberry Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:45 PM (#2013414)
Wright!
   51. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:45 PM (#2013415)
glavines got a no-hitter going
   52. Chris Dial Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:46 PM (#2013419)
Well, not if there are alreay two out...
   53. Urban Faber Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:46 PM (#2013421)
If there's anyone with "utility infielder" written all over him, it's Bell. Yet, he's started his whole career.

One of his teams won 116 games! OK, it wasn't because of him, but ...
   54. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:47 PM (#2013424)
tom glavine - 5.57 pitches/batter
cory lidle - 2.67 pitches/batter
   55. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:48 PM (#2013426)
trivia answer = pedro?
   56. Raskolnikov Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:48 PM (#2013427)
C'mon two more runs this inning. Nice start, Delgado.
   57. Sam M. Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:48 PM (#2013428)
So it *MUST* be fact that the Phils lineup is tough, up and down.

That, for those not adept at cross-thread between-line reading was directed at me.

And, for those not fond of circumspection in their rejoinders, you might appreciate this a bit more:

That is the dumbest comparison in Primer history, Chris.
   58. Chris Dial Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:48 PM (#2013429)
Nice try, Harris.
   59. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:49 PM (#2013433)
wait'll next inning
   60. Raskolnikov Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:49 PM (#2013434)
If we don't knock Lidle out by the 4th, I'll be disappointed.
   61. Free Rob Base Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:50 PM (#2013436)
bases juiced. Lidle's on the ropes.
   62. AJMcCringleberry Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:50 PM (#2013437)
What was the trivia question?
   63. Sam M. Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:50 PM (#2013438)
Baserunning via the local. Time to take the Nady Express, I hope.
   64. Raskolnikov Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:50 PM (#2013440)
Floyd *not* killing a rally?! Wow. C'mon Nady!
   65. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:51 PM (#2013441)
tom glavine - 5.57 pitches/batter
cory lidle - 2.67 pitches/batter


If people keep getting hits on the first or second pitches, it doesn't really matter huh?
   66. AJMcCringleberry Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:51 PM (#2013442)
Let's go X!
   67. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:52 PM (#2013452)
trivia question = last mets pitcher to carry a no-no into the 9th inning.
   68. Sam M. Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:53 PM (#2013456)
That 2-1 pitch was Nady's pitch, I fear . . . .
   69. Raskolnikov Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:54 PM (#2013459)
When Lidle doesn't have his control, he's batting practice. Anyone else remember when Lidle was our best AAA pitcher - quasi pitching prospect? I really thought the Mets should have given him a shot.
   70. AJMcCringleberry Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:54 PM (#2013460)
Nice D!
   71. Sam M. Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:54 PM (#2013467)
Something tell's me this game will not be Ryan Howard's audition tape for the Espy's.
   72. Raskolnikov Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:55 PM (#2013473)
What Howard giveth at the plate, he taketh away with the glove. Early night for Lidle, easy to forsee.
   73. AJMcCringleberry Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:56 PM (#2013479)
last mets pitcher to carry a no-no into the 9th inning.

Did Glavine take it into the 9th against Colorado?
   74. Chris Dial Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:57 PM (#2013480)
You must be the only one watching the Phils broadcast, Harris.
   75. Jersey Joe Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:57 PM (#2013481)
trivia question = last mets pitcher to carry a no-no into the 9th inning.

I'm pretty sure the answer is Glavine, unless someone else did it more recently and I forgot.
   76. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:57 PM (#2013483)
ugh...I think its supper time.
   77. Chris Dial Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:59 PM (#2013485)
SNY interviewing Luzinski.
   78. Harris Posted: May 10, 2006 at 11:59 PM (#2013486)
not for much longer....
   79. Sam M. Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:00 AM (#2013491)
You must be the only one watching the Phils broadcast, Harris.

No, that's the one I'm getting on MLB.tv, too.
   80. AJMcCringleberry Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:00 AM (#2013492)
Glavine!!
   81. Chris Dial Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:00 AM (#2013494)
When Heilman threw his one hitter last spring, when was the hit allowed?
   82. Raskolnikov Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:00 AM (#2013495)
Tom Glavine can rake!
   83. Chris Dial Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:01 AM (#2013498)
I have DTV, so I guess Glavine gets a hit here?
   84. Sam M. Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:01 AM (#2013499)
Glavine is well on his way to Silver Slugger, methinks.
   85. Free Rob Base Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:01 AM (#2013500)
Sweet -- game over early tonight. No theatrics. Way to put the Phils back in their place.
   86. Raskolnikov Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:01 AM (#2013503)
Glavine's hit should just about clinch this game. Good night to break in Bell.
   87. Chris Dial Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:02 AM (#2013505)
I'll have a large Yoohoo, Harris.
   88. Sam M. Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:03 AM (#2013510)
Get Paul Simon's vocal chords warmed up . . . I'm looking for a chorus or two of Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard . . . .
   89. Raskolnikov Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:03 AM (#2013512)
REYES! Save some runs for tomorrow night, guys.
   90. AJMcCringleberry Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:03 AM (#2013513)
When Heilman threw his one hitter last spring, when was the hit allowed?

I believe it was early in the game to Castillo.
   91. Chris Dial Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:03 AM (#2013514)
I'll say it first - this game is in the bag.
   92. Harris Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:03 AM (#2013516)
thanks, you've been a great crowd, try the meat-loaf. I'll be here all week.
   93. Sam M. Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:05 AM (#2013521)
See, now this is the way a nine-game winning streak should end, if it's gonna end. Just get stomped and let it go. Not sure if Phillies' fans would agree, but that's how I'd want it if it were the Mets.
   94. Old Matt Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:05 AM (#2013522)
HEY NOW!
   95. Chris Dial Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:05 AM (#2013524)
I enjoy a good ass-braining by the Mets - now I can enjoy some Dora the Explorer dominoes with Red.
   96. Sam M. Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:07 AM (#2013528)
HEY NOW!

Not THAT Julio. The OTHER Julio. The one who comes in in 10-run games, not 1-run games. Cool your jets, old man.

Now, about Dial's little shot at Fr. McKenzie™ . . . . Not going to pick up the debate, Chris?
   97. Chris Dial Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:08 AM (#2013535)
Delgado sticking it on the shift!
   98. Free Rob Base Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:09 AM (#2013538)
There shoould be a slaugter rule for games like this.
   99. Chris Dial Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:10 AM (#2013540)
What's to pick up? You wrote a nice little ditty though.
   100. Eric in Madison Posted: May 11, 2006 at 12:10 AM (#2013543)
Last exam of my 1L year today. I've done pretty well, but this one (property) may have been my Waterloo.
