Phillies Drop 2 To The Giants
Ending their road trip on a low note, the Phillies lost another one to the Giants today. In yesterday’s match-up, Jamie Moyer did not pitch well at all and the offense struggled against baby-faced Lincicum. But really, shame on Lincicum for beating up on an old man like that. I say that is elder abuse and just should not be allowed! Jamie is old enough to be his Dad…has he no respect? Geez. Oh well…what else can you say about that game really? That kid is just awesome. Sucks that he’s not on our team…noooooo, we have to be stuck with Adam freakin’ Eaton! (hey, can we have Rowand back too while we’re at it…)
Speaking of which, Mr. Eaton took the mound yet again this afternoon and yet again looked like a duck trying to wade through the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Every pitch was more and more frightening and you could smell the impending doom in the air. But then Chad Durbin comes in, pitches a shut down inning, and saves the day! Maybe we can still win this one? But, no…we know it does not turn out that way. You can’t really lay it on Romero for giving up the go ahead runs. He can’t be expected to be perfect every time…no one can. So, for the times when our bullpen will give up runs, that is when the offense needs to step up, especially against a team like the Giants, who we should be walking all over. To see them just lie down and die like they did today is really disturbing. You have to wonder if they just do not want to play for Adam Eaton. They never look like the same team when he is on the mound. Maybe a guy can only let his team down so many times before it begins to have an effect? Just like an oil spill…you can clean it up, but even years later, it is still leaking poison into the environment…
It’s an off day for the Phillies tomorrow before the 3 game Atlanta series. On Wednesday, the Phillies are holding their women’s clinic, Baseball 101 which I will be attending and then reporting back on probably by Thursday sometime. They have run it for 3 years now and this is my 3rd year going…it is an awesome time at the ballpark. We get to play with the entire coaching staff all day, hit in the cages, run the bases, hang out in the dugout, etc… I’ll post pictures and maybe some video when I return. If anyone else is going, drop me a line and let me know. I’ll see ya there! And Happy Mother’s Day every one!
