For The Girls…
I hear ya ladies…after I posted a photo of a Hooters girl yesterday at a Spring training game, I received many request from the ladies for some female entertainment. So, here it is, Phillies-style:
Although, Cole Hamels gave it the college try:
And Shane Victorino jumped in on the action during the Phillies Cruise in January:
But the rest of the team seems to be a bit modest. So, I decided to help them along…meet the Phillie-Dales! Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins (with a new hair-do), Chad Durbin and Greg Dobbs:
And the scary part is, they probably all look even hotter than that in real life :O) *Sigh!*
Ok, back to reality! The Elder, Jamie Moyer started the game today against the Rays; Moyer went 5 innings, giving up 2 runs on 4 hits and a walk. Moyer has looked great all spring. JA Happ took over in the 6th inning and after the first 2 batters were out, he suddenly gave up a solo home run and a single. But Happ recovered quickly and got out of the inning with a ground ball. Happ pitched 3 innings of 1 run ball. To me, this has been the difference between Happ and Kyle Kendrick or Carlos Carrasco; Happ can make a mistake and move on. The other two seem emotionally unable to cope. Chan Ho Park is an experienced veteran who also does not seem shaken easily, so keep an eye on Park as well over these next few weeks.
In the poll I posted yesterday on who will be the Phillies 5th starter, Happ ran away with the contest, getting 100% of the votes. After Kyle Kendrick’s horrible outing yesterday, this picture is becoming clearer.
The most exciting things that happened offensively for the Phillies in the first 6 innings were Jason Donald getting a walk and Miguel Cairo getting the only hit in those six innings. After that, Ryan Howard came through with a sac fly with the bases loaded to score the Phillies first run. The only other offense in the game was a 9th inning home run from Andy Tracy, and the Phils went on to lose 3-2.
Team USA lost to Team Venezuela yesterday, but the game really did not mean much; both teams will advance to Round 2 of the Classic. The other teams who made the cut are Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Japan, Korea and the Netherlands. Round 2 will begin on Saturday; Rollins and Victorino with Team USA take on JC Romero and Team Puerto Rico at 8pm in Miami.
