Gah... poor Chooch.

Just reading the words "testicle contusion" makes me cringe.


hib to the jib

That was a nice start.

Alright. Let's hope that's a positive sign, & J-Roll's about to enter a hot streak.

I hate you, TCMKOTB. Almost ruins Jimmy's dinger...

Vic's my Offensive MVP. When he & Rollins are both producing at the same time, good things usually happen.

No tilt.

blast

HR Derby

awesome.

Cliff isn't really looking too sharp tonight.

Could be a long series.

Doesn't help that Cliff can throw a pitch right down the middle and it's called a ball...

The guy's been in the bigleagues for 3 weeks and Wheels already has a crush on him. What a turd.

Can someone who is watching the game tell me about the strike zone? On Gameday, these sure look like strikes, but they are being called balls?

Anyone else having trouble with their Fios CSN HD?

It'd be nice if our offense could pick up our pitching. But looking at the bottom half of this lineup is like looking at a black hole so my hopes aren't high.


Perils- I will be enthusastic and you can you know what

My only assumption is that the Ump is drunk...or is named CB Bucknor.

Yet its not Bucknor so who knows.

Pence looks so awkward out there sometimes, but he gets in done. Watching him run just looks so odd.

Thanks for nothing, Pence. Where were you last night??!!

Pence=Simple Jack

Foster behind the plate. He's usually a guy who calls a strict strike zone.

Re:Ruiz

Cup or no cup?

Pence is amazing.

So Pence is kind of a spaz, eh?

Case and point watching him run home from 3rd haha

Shocked that Pence scored there after sliding into 3rd.

OMG are they gonna torture our boy Hunter.

Great takeout by Mayberry

Well that was strange. Pence slides at 3b and still scores.

So glad to see Mayberry in there instead of Ibanez. Nice take out slide too at 2b.

Schneider - another guy who might not be on a MLB roster next year. As good as they are, they have 3 or 4 guys right now on their roster who fit that bill.

The similarities between the DBacks and last year's Giants is a bit unsettling - lots of castoffs from other teams, stud rookie, but maybe pitching doesn't look as strong.

Tie goes to the runner? Not today

SAFE by a step, how do they miss those calls?

Dbacks are not the Giants of last year. Pitching is simply not as good.

He was safe.

"slider" pence.

MG: True. But the Phillies still have an annoying habit of finding a way to lose to them. I don't want to see Arizona in the playoffs, esp. in a short series.

Replay shows he was out.

No way he's catching in the major leagues sans cup.

Gtown: who would you like to face in a short series? I don't think Houston will make it.

Ump is not giving the strike call on balls at the belt.

Never a good sign when the pitcher gets on base to lead off an inning.

Jbird: St. Louis or Milwaukee.

Wes Helms signed to a minor league deal by the Braves.

St Louis > Milwaukee
Arizona > San Fran
Atlanta > San Fran (Wild Card)

I'm starting to hate Ryan Roberts. It started last night and now the dirty look he gave Mayberry on the slide and second and now griping to the ump.

Brewers opening up a 7 game lead in the central, so the Phils are only ones running away.

Arizona would be my choice of all the likely teams. I think Milwaukee is a better team than Arizona.

Roberts is a woman. You should know this Mr. Cocks

Great throw by Blanco to get Rollins

Has there ever been a worse player, with a better knack for finding his way onto good teams, than Cody Ransom?

Howard vs. Saunders: 0-11, 5K. Howard should never face Saunders.

I guess Ransom is an appropriate name, then.

C. Lee seems to have found his tilt.

Hey, is it me, or is Utley in a slump?

Utley doesn't slump...he's merely stepping back to allow his lesser teammates some of the spotlight.

Cyclic- we're not allowed to talk about when Utley is in a slump. If he doesn't get a hit, it's because he's hurt or he's worn out from giving 110%.

A quick check of his splits show he isn't really slumping.


I am starting to get STEAMED!@!!

Is that the same Utley who got 3 hits last night?

Strike 3 to Rollins appeared to be pretty inside.

Posted by: Cyclic | Wednesday, August 17, 2011 at 08:35 PM

Didn't he have 3 hits last night?

Mike G, last night was so yesterday.

Goldschmidt means "One who is like Cody Ross" in German

Nice double play

Goldschmidt has ridiculous raw power.

He's like a young Ryan Howard basically.

21 2B, 3 3B, 30 HR in 457 PA in AA this year at Age 23.

He hit 35 HRs in A ball last year.

Another record crowd at the Bank. Where are they putting all of these people? Are people sitting on other people's laps?

Typical Beerleaguer, defending St. Utley by pointing out his 3-hit night last night.

The guy is hitless in his last 3 at bats. That's a slump in my book.

Utley sucks...BRING UP ORR!!!

OMG a guy wearing a Wheels shirt? They should take his testacles away.

I missed yesterday's game. But I heard Halladay took a 1 run lead into the 9th.

We won, right?

Thought that was out.

Crap.

Sorry cup or no cup, that sh8t hurts. Just hope it is a contusion.
As they used to say on Sportscenter when it used to be funny, "routine groin surgery....there is no routine groin surgery!"

Not to drop the TMI here but there is nothing quite like being a grown azz man getting testicle surgery and hearing from the doc it would have been much less pain if my parents had it done to me at birth or before teenage years.

damn, i thought that was gone

Tough break for Howard there, that was a nice swing and overall good AB.

"Howard should never face Saunders."

I feel like we say the same thing about a good 40% of the pitchers in baseball.

Are we up to 40% LHPs in the Majors now?

Worley > Kennedy tomorrow? What say you

95 pitches?

He should be good for another 3-4 innings.

Gotta rest the BP.

I'd get the 'pen tossing just in case, but I think Lee ought to be good for one more.

CG or no dice. Only sissies use the bullpen to relieve an Ace starter.

No runs this inning=Feels like a loss.

Pence can't even jog to first with coordination.

Great player but boy is he funny to watch.

Howard hurt maybe. Time for more Mayberry!

HIb to the pibs

What is Wheels talking about? Neither Abreu or Bowa had even a single 200-hit season.

If the Phillies don't score this Inning, my head will asplode.

cant do that, Cyclic...play Gload (or maybe Mini Mart...cause he's versatile) at 1B and keep on tossing Raul out there in LF.

Double play scores run.

That scores a run too.

Amazing baserunning by Mayberry

Exxon!
