The Nats bats were too tired from scoring 14 runs the day before and they still almost came back in the 9th.

/they should change they're name to The Goonies. They never say die.

Oh that's where AJ wound up.

I liked AJ. I thought his problem was that when he tried to paint the corners (very well, usually) and an ump called enough balls (some of which would clearly be strikes) it got in AJs head, and then he'd throw meatballs. By the 2nd - 3rd inning you could tell how it was going to go.

It usually didn't go well.

H31N0US: It usually almost never didn't go went well.


Aside from game 2 of the 2009 World Series, of course, where it went fantastically well.

Strictly based on last year, the pirates wouldn't mind him back on their team.

Phillies have played well against good teams this year, it is the other teams they can't seem to beat.

The umpire was also legally blind and suffering from vertigo.  That always helps.

He was hard to watch in Toronto. Especially next to Roy Halladay. You'd look at their stuff, and what they were able to do with it, And you could really see what a difference make-up can cause.

I think this is the one Sports thread today with no Politics in it. Of course, we're on comment #9.

Ahh I can breath again the wretched Phillies teams of my youth are back. Too much good baseball is not good for Phillies fans.I

5 days from now: "Burnett gives up 8 earned runs, gets pulled in the 2nd"

Why bother?  He could pitch a no hitter until the third batter in the ninth got on base and the bullpen would still lose the game for them.

Andre Dawson won National League MVP in 1987...when his team, the Cubs, was in last place.
