The Phillies continue their three-gamer in Washington, D.C. with a match against Tim Redding and the Nats.

Seeing Redd: Tim Redding is the No. 1 Phillie Killer, the B.A. Baracus of the team of guys who openly throttle us on a regular basis. He has pitched 13.1 shutout innings against the Phils this season, giving up eight hits while walking five. If the Phils decide to take pitches …

Iron Ryan: Ryan Howard has a consecutive game streak of 221 games, longest in baseball.

Flawless Final: After last night’s win, the Phillies are 46-0 when leading after eight innings.

Phillies: Jamie Moyer (9-6) 3.76 ERA
Nationals: Tim Redding (7-5) 3.98 ERA

Gametime: 7:10 p.m. EST
Weather: 88, cloudy
Lineup: Rollins/Victorino/Utley/Howard/Burrell/Jenkins/Bruntlett/Ruiz/Moyer

Your gamenight beer: Affligem Blond is a Belgian beer, really my favorite nation for beer. It’s yellow/gold, very light and has somewhat of a banana lace smell. Can’t beat that combination. When facing a guy who has baffled you all season, you need to rethink strategy, take your time, focus on every little pitch. That makes Affligem Blond a nice beer for tonight. For a food pairing, I’d go with clams.

Go Phillies!

    Hamels is exactly 2 days older than me, so I can’t call him a kid I guess.

    Pat Gillick should be fired right now for letting all of this happen.

    don..you see why we hate gillick? he sits around and allows teams to make good deals for clutch players while he does nothing. sometimes hell even come out and say: no, we have no interest in kyle lohse anymore, sorry. etc

    Lovely. We will lose this game. Maybe it would be a tie game if that douche bag Jenkins didn’t kill a rally.

    ahaha, moyers collapse starts right now. like clockwork. get him out of there right now…JA Happ takes his spot in the rotation, make him retire immediately and trade for roy halladay

    Geoff, you’re being a dick. Hamels imploded the other day. Let’s trade him for a bag of balls.

    I love how Moyer has 10 incredible outings in a row and now everyone is saying make him retire and that he can’t pitch.

    hamels is 24. that, kid, is allowed time to develop. moyers had his time, now its time to call him coach

    Yeah, and when was the last time you’ve seen him do that this season? The beginning of May? Come on dude…it happens sometimes. I’m sure Halladay, Lincecum, Volquez, etc. have done that in a game or 2 this season. Halladay let up 7 to the Cubs in 3 innings. It’s bound to happen here and there. Moyer has been pitching great for us this year.

    im partially joking. partially.

    I agree with Phil. It’s ridiculous when fans react and come up with trades based on emotions rather than intellect. Trade everyone, fire everyone, retire everyone. They can’t be perfect all the time, and even *stars* have bad years/streaks. It makes no sense to trade away the farm or roster for a two month rent-a-player. Oh, and for those who say “we’ll get two #1 draft picks out of it” think about that for a second. How long before those #1′s are major league ready, and we all know the percentages aren’t very good that they will even reach the majors.

    Okay Rollins, step it up right here.

    I wasn’t comparing Moyer to Halladay. I was saying every pitcher implodes. I’m sure you’re a Muts fan. Look at your old man pitcher. Moyer is having a MUCH better year than that broken down has been.

    Phil, I was pickin’ up what you were puttin’ down, and I agree.

    id actuallly wait to pull jimmy to tell him hes traded until hes at the plate, just to humilate him and teach this team a lesson

    I am a Phillies fan and have been since the mid 70s. But I call it like i see it. Why do you accuse everyone of being a Met fan if they disagree with you? That is a piss poor defensive arguement.

    wow, a scoreless inning! i smell a longterm contract brewing

    hamels is not hurt with a fracture in his elbow his velocity would have droped along with his arm slot.

     
  • Posts: 0 Phil

    old men can’t pitch, you’re saying Moyer sucks when he’s been solid this year. Only Muts fans do that usually. Well, Muts fans and Geoff.

    Jeez guys. . . There’s a lot of game left. Remember last weekend??? Who has the better bullpen? They’re the friggin’ Expos for God Sake!

    BTW – Heard something on Eskin today about a Hamels injury? Likely you guys have been posting about this already and I missed it. Anyone know anything? Anyone???? Buller??? Buller???

    show me where i said “moyer sucks.” i said comparing moyer to halladay is stupid. if that has gotten you up in arms, then you need to remove your rose colored glasses, my phriend

     
  • Posts: 0 Phil

    I’m sure it’s just to bail Hamels out for his piss poor performance the other night. He’s not injured.

     
  • Posts: 0 Phil

    I never compared Moyer to Halladay. Your avatar says it all though. Old men can’t pitch to me=Jamie Moyer sucks. Maybe I shouldn’t assume.

    SUP GIRLS… here is the ESPN link to the story about the Pudge trade.. and some quotes from it that make sense!

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3511535

    Farnsworth is 1-2 with a 3.65 ERA this season. Farnsworth pitched for the Tigers for the first four months of 2005, compiling a 2.32 ERA in 46 games before he was traded to the Braves at the trading deadline.

    “Another team wants me. That’s the way I look at it,” he said. ” They [the Tigers] know my reputation. They know what type of person I am.”

    The departure of Farnsworth creates a void in the eighth inning for the Yankees. When Joba Chamberlain moved into the starting rotation and gave up that role, Farnsworth eventually stepped in and had been effective.

    “He’s been throwing the ball great and it’s great to see the things he’s done to make himself better, but it’s a business and you have to understand that,” Chamberlain said.

    Tigers slugger Gary Sheffield said the trade made sense to both sides.

    “This is a surprise to people if they don’t know the situations of the players,” he said. “Both teams get better by this, and that’s what a trade is supposed to be all about.”

    Who were the Tigers going to take from the Phillies… while at the same time we’re trying to add guys to our bullpen to make it stronger?? Just wondering…

    it’s an embellishmnet, that i’ll agree with. and maybe i assumed when i read “Halladay let up 7 to the Cubs in 3 innings. It’s bound to happen here and there. Moyer has been pitching great for us this year.” to me, that sounds like you’re saying moyer is on par with halladay, which even you can understand is untruthful

    We need a lefty to make our pen stronger, Don. Seanez and Condrey are expendable.

    Phil im with you though… Geoff has been saying all year the Moyer should, and will retire… in the meantime, he’s the 2nd best pitcher we have. When other pitchers get rocked its no big deal, because people realize that not everyone has their best stuff every night.

    He pitches nasty, gets no run support…then gives up some early runs in a game and people are calling phor his head..

    The Marlins getting Manny?I guess Pat Gillick wants the Phils to lose this year.

     
  • Posts: 0 Phil

    Yeah, I’m not dumb. Moyer in his prime wasn’t as good as Halladay. What I was trying to prove is that even the best pitchers in the game get lit up from time to time. Of course it will happen to Moyer too.

    i was JOKING, cant you tell?

    it means don, that your man-love-man-crush-man-love pat gillick got caught asleep again

    I wouldn’t bash Moyer if he had a 5.00 ERA. The guy is 45, he helps our young guys, and he keeps us in ballgames. Even last year he kept us in the game. Moyer has been great for us this year, and it’s one of my few qualms with Geoff as a poster. Other than his beef with Moyer he’s one of my favorite posters on this site.

    haha Flores leads the Nats with 44 RBI’s. That’s sad. Victorino is so great defensively. The phlyin Hawaiian fan club is great too.

    i respoect moyer a lot but people give his pitching a pass because of that respect. he gives up 5 runs in 3 innings one night? eh no big deal, its jamie…whaaaaaaaat? the man just gave up 5 runs (not tonight, as an example) no excuses apply

    Geoff – Howard Eskin said today that Hamels might have a fracture in his elbow. I believe his source was multiple scouts. Who knows the validity of it? I was just wondering if anyone heard anything else about it.

     
  • Posts: 0 Geoff

    you never know with eskin…could be true, if it is… roy hallday

     
  • Posts: 0 Phil

    Yeah, I think if Hamels goes down Gillick will have to go after Halladay.

    be careful what you wish for, Phil. The Marlins may be the real players in the NL East, not the Mets. You really want to cheer for them to win?
