Trifecta!

Tonight is another example why, no matter how Doc looks in the first inning, you are a fool if you think he's not going to straighten things out and give you, at the very least, a quality start. I'm glad MG lost money betting against him.

Nowhere Man

"The Phillies and Cole Hamels haven't made any progress in contract extension talks for more than a month now, leaving roughly eight months for the two sides to work out a potential deal. Hamels will be the best free agent starter on the market next winter now that Matt Cain has re-signed, and there will be plenty of suitors for the left-handed, in his prime ace."

me: "Marlins are +130 with the o/u at 6 - all you geniuses should become rich!"

Sorry fellas, Vegas wins again.

Here are more details:

"There has been no movement on the Phillies' part to restart contract extension talks with Cole Hamels, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (on Twitter). It's unclear if they're loading up to make a big offer or have been spooked by his asking price.

Last week we heard that the two sides hadn't had talks in 30 days. The Phillies offered their 28-year-old left-hander Jered Weaver money (five years, $85MM), but Matt Cain's extension with the Giants (five years, $112.5MM) raised the bar. With Cain locked up, Hamels will be the premier free agent pitcher if the hits the open market after the season."

Fatalotti: My heart says "Yes", but my head says "No". Hamilton is a rare case in which, no matter which way the Phils went, I could probably find a way to defend said choice.

Sh8t, I'm a terrible conversationalist, but howse about Freddy Galvis big hit? Gamer eh?

It was nice to see the O showed up bigger tonight, Doc was awful good after a questionable start.
Freedddyyy chant could make up for RauuuuuL - It would really be fun if the kid could blossom as a hitter in his MLB rookie season.
Improbable , but a fun thing to hope for.


The knowledgeable fan base will buy into Galvis as he IS a ballplayer. Period.


Is Mayberry during the Crouching Tiger..He seems lower in his stance i dunno...

What a fun game to watch! Lots to like, but I was particularly happy to see Galvis' big hit.

I'm with Bubba above. "Blossom" doesn't have to mean Utley numbers, just, say, a .250 BA with intelligent pitch selection and ABs.

Bob- Freddy >>>> Michael Martinez would suit me fine.

I think the Freddy chant is an acknowledgement that he belongs. Being as it is so obvious he's of ML calibre from his glove alone, anything he does with the bat is pure bonus gravy.

Hence the chanting. Every hit is like Christmas present you weren't expecting, and everyone loves surprise gifts.

Mayberry is croucihng too low. His shoulders should Never Be ahead of his knee(his back power knee). But I believe he is aware of this and is gradually making the adjustment. No need for the final Dear John letter.

Shasta, that's "crouching".

Hey, P3, Phillies scored 7 runs. WS right?

2nd base ump had a big effect on tonight's game.
Questionable obstruction/ interference call that went against the Phils; followed by a blown safe/out call that favored us.

I would give him the game ball. Albeit the the Phillies pounded the ball after that close miss.

Meyer-
I used to umpire kids games and my instructor told me that if both dugouts were screaming at you - you did a good job.

By that criteria he was good.

Going, going, gone!

Winston Wolf perspective:

Galvis may be very slick but he's 2-17 with a slash line .118/.167/.235 with 1 BB.

Yeah he has had 2 doubles that have plated 4 runs but he's still just 2-9 with RISP after tonight.

Simply needs to hit a lot more to have any shot of sticking when Utley comes back.

Enjoyed the game. Nuff said!

BTW. Anybody notice the shutdown 8th and 9th provided by Qualls and Stutes?

And, so, to wrap up this thread, let us just remember that Nick Swisher is wrong in every way.

Did not read through the comments yet but seemed like a 'small ball' win to me. First runs were steal second, base hit, advance to second on the throw types.
Galvis hit was the seal after walk to Ruiz. He must be channeling his Valdez 'clutchness'.

With their offensive explosion last night, the Phillies jumped all the way to...

25th in ML
13th in NL

in runs scored.

Yeah, they were that bad through their first 4.

Seriously, re-posting a Heyman piece on Hamels? They only have 8 months!

Yo, new thread
