and yes - there's a big difference between a one hit outing and a three hit outing. I believe the record book keeps track of one-hitters. Nobody gives a rat's ass or is impressed by a three hitter. Granter - these are in 9-inning games, not 5 inning games. Giving up 3 hits in a 5-inning games is good. Giving up 1 is great.

If Glendon Rusch had a 5 inning 3-hitter, I'd think it was a good outing by a bad pitcher, *not* a typical outing of a good pitcher.

wow Rollins batting 3rd - i guess chollie realized he hits Glavine well.
   3. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 05:42 PM (#2128485)
He doesn't have a 3-hitter so much without Abreu. Rollins is as good as the next guy, I think.
   4. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 05:42 PM (#2128486)
Harris, it was 5 hits and 3 hits, not 3 and 1.
   5. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 05:43 PM (#2128488)
No, Wooo Ryan Howard! ?
   6. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 05:46 PM (#2128490)
Need a poke here, david!

Nice play by Aby Baby.

Floyd is made of glass.
   8. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 05:48 PM (#2128493)
Every time I say "come on!" we don't. I guess I should not say that.
   9. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 05:50 PM (#2128495)
What happened to Floyd???
   10. cynic Posted: August 05, 2006 at 05:51 PM (#2128496)
What's the deal with Floyd?
   11. cynic Posted: August 05, 2006 at 05:52 PM (#2128498)
Ha ha...I think it's just you and I, Chris, and neither of us knows what is going on with Floyd.
   12. cynic Posted: August 05, 2006 at 06:10 PM (#2128509)
Apparently it's just me now. Well, anyway.

New York Mets left fielder Cliff Floyd left the game due to an injured foot/ankle.
   13. Benji Posted: August 05, 2006 at 06:19 PM (#2128513)
DWright is spry today!
   14. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 06:20 PM (#2128515)
I would say he fouled a ball off his ankle, but that didn't appear to be the case.

Maybe he tripped coming out of teh dugout.
   15. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 06:22 PM (#2128517)
We really need to win because I have to go to a wedding where Harris and about 1000 Phillies fans will be. It'll be annoying.
   16. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 06:36 PM (#2128528)
Glav started out wonky, but he's really settled down - aside fromt eh regular doubles. But, no more rusn. Now, let's catch up.
   17. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 06:41 PM (#2128529)
Lieber is killing us - I mean 62 pitches? Somebody!
   18. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: August 05, 2006 at 06:48 PM (#2128535)
Valentin is quite the defensive 2b. He really stood in there for the DP nicely.
   19. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: August 05, 2006 at 06:59 PM (#2128538)
The Phillies are making a lot of mistakes in the field.
   20. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:00 PM (#2128539)
Endy Magic!
   21. Urban Faber Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:04 PM (#2128542)
I saw the top of the first - Floyd bumped into the wall in foul ground chasing a fly ball. Looked like the left hip took the impact but who knows what the chain reaction was.
   22. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:08 PM (#2128545)
Woohoo! Way to go Tommy! That's reaching back!

Endy with the big hit. I have to leave in 20 minutes, so let's wrap this up!
   23. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:17 PM (#2128551)
Two innings from the pen - I'd like some insurance next ups, though. Milledge could go yard to make me happy.
   24. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:18 PM (#2128552)
Oh, and thanks Red. I got the Braves/Reds here. I was pretty pumped at first when I thought I would get the Mets.
   25. Chris Dial Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:22 PM (#2128554)
Excellent work, Aaron!
   26. Urban Faber Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:28 PM (#2128556)
Howard with the hit on the first pitch - pinch run here?
   27. Urban Faber Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:30 PM (#2128558)
Guess not ... Phils banking on Burrell to hit one.
   28. Urban Faber Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:31 PM (#2128559)
But he looks at strike three.
   29. Harris Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:31 PM (#2128560)
I love it when burrell gets three called strikes in an at-bat.
   30. Harris Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:32 PM (#2128561)
please picnh hit with lieberthal....
   31. Harris Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:33 PM (#2128562)
ugh - think id a gone with liebs against the lefty.
   32. Urban Faber Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:35 PM (#2128566)
I don't think a pinch runner could have scored - Milledge was over pretty quickly.
   33. Harris Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:35 PM (#2128567)
lieb-er-thal

lieb-er-thal
   34. Srul Itza Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:36 PM (#2128568)
Wagner's gonna blow another save. Even when Tommy pitches okay, he can't catch a break.
   35. Urban Faber Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:38 PM (#2128570)
And Wright saves it.
   36. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:38 PM (#2128571)
Wright saves Billy's bacon again... ####### Wagner.
   37. spivey Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:38 PM (#2128572)
I think we can all agree that NYM wouldn't have won this game against an AL team not named KC.
   38. Benji Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:38 PM (#2128573)
I love you DWright!!
   39. cynic Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:38 PM (#2128574)
Harris -- no way. Chase sports an OPS 300 points higher than Lieberthal on the season. The platoon difference can't possibly be that much.

Enjoy the wedding, Chris.
   40. Harris Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:39 PM (#2128575)
for this of us not able to watch - did wright make an awesome play or routine?
   41. spivey Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:40 PM (#2128576)
Utley is hitting as well against LHP as he is against RHP this year (actually, slightly better). Last year his splits sucked, but since he's young I think it might just be a very talented hitter developing his game instead of sample size.
   42. spivey Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:41 PM (#2128577)
Wright made a pretty good play. Given the situation, I'd say it was a huge play.
   43. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:41 PM (#2128578)
did wright make an awesome play or routine?
It wasn't at the Kalas, 'Are you kidding me?' level, but a notch below.
   44. Urban Faber Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:41 PM (#2128579)
Excellent play - saved a double. Dove toward the line (he wasn't guarding), grabbed it, got up, threw him out.
   45. Harris Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:42 PM (#2128581)
so david bell would have booted it .... eh - that describes most balls hit his way anyway.
   46. Srul Itza Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:43 PM (#2128582)
They should give Wright the credit for the save. Wagner sure as heck did not save that game.
   47. David Wrightwing obstructionist Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:46 PM (#2128585)
Awesome, sounds like we stole one today. I woke up and turned on gamecast during Beltran's AB in the 6th so that was kindof nice.

Thats a pretty nice rightside of the infield in Philly.

287 for Glavine and we shave 2 off the magic#...sweet!
   48. Ska Posted: August 05, 2006 at 07:48 PM (#2128586)
Could you imagine if you combined the Phllies' right side and the Mets' left side? Howard, Utley, Reyes & Wright. How many All Star games are those 4 going to play in combined in the next 5 years? 20?
   49. spivey Posted: August 05, 2006 at 08:04 PM (#2128591)
20?

That's not actually out of the realm of possibility, which is crazy. I'd say 18 is a good guess. One because of injury, and perhaps Howard will struggle a year or a manager will screw him.

Pujols and Berkman is tough competition, so all he needs is to get screwed, go up against someone like Nomar this year, or have an off year.
