Brewers Hypnotize Phillies


pd_hypnosis_070828_mn.jpg
A total 360 from yesterday’s game, the Phillies offense appeared to be hypnotized by the Brewers pitching.  They did manage 8 hits, but they came at the wrong times and 3 of those were in the 9th inning, including a Jayson Werth home run; the only score of the day for the Phils.

Joe Blanton pitched 6 innings and gave up 3 runs, much the same as he did against the Nats last week, but again, did not get any run support.  The bullpen, which today included Chad Durbin, Clay Condrey, Scott Eyre and Ryan Madson, finally looked on-target as well.  But those of us looking for any excitement in the hitting department may as well have slept though the first 8 innings; and why not?  The Phillies did. :O)

But enough about that snooze fest, let’s move on to All-Star voting, which began today.  You can help make Chase Utley the first Phil since Mike Schmidt to go to the All-Star game 4 years in a row!  Just keep on VOTING!  And vote for all the other Phillies, too!  I will attempt to remember to post a link to the All-Star Ballot each day; you have no excuse not to vote!  Even my pet chinchilla can do it…see!  DSCF1657.JPGGizmo is a very talented rodent; his favorite computer part is the mouse :O)  Gizmo has vowed to vote 25 times per day, the maximum daily vote per email address or odd household pet.  Please help him in his quest; after all, he is just a little guy.  Don’t make him feel like a hamster on a wheel, working all by himself!  Gizmo really hates the hamster reference because he is a WAY cooler, and cuter, fluffy rodent.

And it has now become apparent that I am seriously lacking in the quality sleep department…  That explains the Phillies lack of production today!  They knew I needed a nap…hey, thanks guys!  I promise to get some shut-eye tonight so tomorrow, you can get back to work.  Game time is 1:05pm…don’t sleep in too late!

Aw, Gizmo is so cute! But I’ll have to be voting for my Padres, of course :) Hope you have a better game today.

You have a pet chinchilla? Does he have any Phillies gear? Maybe that’s your contest pic. :)

I think I accidentally killed Gizmo (or one related to him) yesterday in the laundry room of my apartment building. Hope that doesn’t hurt your guys’ chances! ;-)
