One loss down, 99 to go. If this is what we can expect from these guys it's gonna be a loooong season. I don't know which annoys me more, the fact that the Sox scored 8 runs on 5 homers including a grand salami or the fact the Phils scored no runs on 3 hits. On the bright side they didn't make any errors.
Phils went 10 innings again with the Nats today. Gotta give them credit, they played good enough to win but came up short and lost 4-3.
Ryan Howard struck out 4x's with runners in scoring position. 4x's!!!
If he gets one hit the Phils have a good shot to win the game.
I know why he's in the lineup ($$$$$) but I don't know why he bats 4th. His days as a cleanup hitter are long gone and every other MLB team knows it except the Phillies. If he must start he should be batting 7th.
Phils fall to the Mets, 6-5. Utley hit 2 homers and had 3 RBI's. Asche and Francoeur hit solo shots.
Ryan Howard watch......Another 0-4 game with 2 strikeouts. He did get on base from a catchers interference call. A gift from the home plate ump. Replay showed the catcher never interfered with him. How long can the Phillies put up with a cleanup batter that can't hit?
He can't hit, he can't field and he's owed 60 million dollars. Nobody wants him. Nobody. The Phillies would be better off cutting their losses, give him the 60 mil and send him home. I can't recall a MLB player, who is/was a starter, who bats 4th, who is as bad as he is.
Btw, he's not in the lineup tonight. Francouer is batting in the 4 hole.
