Jason, you're right. Utley's Senor Out immitation was not an exercize in patience at the plate.

What continue to intrigue, is how good this team could actually be if all the cylinders were firing at the same time.

That, and the starting pitching actually gave them a chance to win every time out.

It's predictable, isn't it? J-Roll comes back, Utley and Burrell shut down. Almost like they're at their best and go on the best runs when they're short-handed.

It bugs me that people are booing Ryan Howard. The guy is clearly frustrated with himself. He cares. Why do fans feel the need to give him another distraction? Besides the fact that he was actually showing major signs of improvement before last night. Lame behavior from that group of fans.

They're all streaky hitters, one just wishes they'd hit at the same time.

I can't help but think that the hitters feel an awful lot of pressure, especially in games like last night where they fall behind 4-0.

I wonder if, over the course of a season, the added pressure of constantly playing from behind doesn't take some toll on their psyche.

Booing is bad enough in general, but to boo Ryan Howard? How lame can you get? Is someone thinking "If I only boo Howard, then he'll have a 4 home run game, and get out of his slump!"

Booing Ryan Howard means is rediculous. I thought Philly fans just wanted to win? Booing doesn't equal just wanting to win.

We boo everything. There's one of those "real men of genius" commercials about us..."if the dog show came to town, you would boo it." I'm not saying it makes sense, it's just what we do.

I booed Howard this hugy is getting $10million and he is hitting .186 Screw him....I booed Utley too after that one pitch weak ground out to 1st base.

Ill boo every memebr of that team until they play to their capabilities....2nd place behind the Marlins with that talent...they dserve to be boo'ed

F all you guys.
