Thank you Bobby

Way to go, Bobby.  As an ambassador to baseball carrying the nations of Venezula and Phillies, he has made both constituencies very proud.  He’s up to 19 dingers (one more than his regular season total this year) and only 8 outs.  If he knocks some of those yellow balls out, he should be nominated of UN Secretary General.  Howard Eskin, playing the role of Cuba, would undoubtedly oppose the bid…

So the comparative politics lesson through the first two batters is: Venezula is better than Canada.  Sounds aboot right….

Wow and after the final better we finally settle the debate:  Venezula, despite its oil hoarding socialist tendacies, is the best country in the world.  Darn.  Bobby Abreu shattered all home run derby records and finished with 41 dingers in one night… 

Not to spoil the good time, but I must mention the Inky outlined the Phillies chances for the remainder of the year. To reach the NL average for wins by the wild card winner, the Phils would have to go 48-26.  Though the stat intended to advocate “shedding their overaged, overpaid and under-productive veterans for younger, scrappier players in the Chase Utley mold,” 48 wins in the second half is an issue in and of itself. 

I agree, the prospect is daunting - the Phils would have play somewhere on the level of, oooh, between the Cardinals and White Sox.  Is there any possible way?  Maybe, but only if Bobby Abreu continues at this pace.
