Wash Them Win: After starting 1-3 against the Nationals, the Phils ahave won four straight against them.

Back At The Top: The Phillies will attempt to hold onto first place tonight.

MLB Gameday

Your gamenight beer: So the Phillies didn’t make a deal. Well, I’ll have more about this later. But for now, enjoy a Fuller’s London Pride, an English pale ale. Sure, maybe we don’t have the prospects or the money necessary to do explosive things at the deadline, but we have our beer, and that’s what counts, right? For dinner, have some red curry chicken and basatmi rice.

Go Phillies!

    After a disappointing day, it’s gonna be nice to sit back and watch the Phils complete this sweep. I’ll be having some Yuengling with a pulled pork sandwich. I feel Howard going deep tonight, he’s due for one. Phils win 6-4.

    Yes… we still have beer! Amen! Go Phils!

    A 15-10 record in July ain’t bad. Go Phils.

    ps. Can’t wait til Ryan Howard dominates in St. Louis like he always does.

    I believe it’s spelled “basmati”. Now I’m gonna have to go get some Indian food. Go Phils!

    I’m hoping for a big start for Kendrick against a terrible lineup. I have a bad feeling about this one for some reason….

    NEPA, that sounds tasty. Nothing like a delicious ice cold Yuengling to wash that tasty sandwich down (Pulp Fiction pun intended). Do me a favor and put a little BBQ sauce on that bad boy…I’m going to live vicariously through you tonight!

    I’m kicking it old school style with a Papa Murphy’s pizza and a case of Blue Moon. The wife can cater to me, as well…

    Im smelling a Phillies sweep! Kendrick got robbed of a quality start agains the Braves, lets hope they give him some run support tonight! Chase makes it three games in a row!

    Haha, already done Jamie. I threw some of Greg “The Bull” Luzinski’s BBQ sauce on it in celebration of the Phils little win streak.

    haha, I put sweet baby ray’s on my other pork BBQ. Both sauces are good, but ray’s is better.

    we made make one good move today… not going after arthur rhodes and letting the marlins pick him up. great move.

    Haha, good point VK. But food and beer is a part of the entire baseball watching experience. They go hand in hand. The fact that I pounded the food a solid hour before the first pitch is beside the point.

    See, I knew we shoulda traded Burrell for Manny.

    No way Manny makes an out! HAHAHAHA

    NEPA, well done my friend. I tried Ray’s on some chicken last week for the first time and must say it’s pretty darn good stuff.

    Nice, Werth. That ball was ripped.

    Man, Ruiz should play against the Nats every day.

    Geez, another hit for Ruiz! What’s going on?!

    Ruiz: Man or T-1000?

    It’s called hell freezing over.

    I guess the “Hunt for .200″ starring Carlos Ruiz is officially out of production. Damn..

    See Geoff, they tried to do a 3 team deal, but couldn’t get the third team to go for it. We would have received a starter.

    great bunt by kendrick to set up the rbi for jroll. good start to the game.

    oh man, I wish we could play this team everyday.

    The Nats announcers are THE worst in all of baseball. For those of us who have to watch the games on the computer, it’s sheer torture to listen to them.
    What are the odds that the worst team in baseball has the worst announcers in baseball?

    Griffin, if you think that’s bad, you should have heard HK saying Vic made it to third… is this guy going senile or something?

    I like the way this has started, small ball wins games!

     
  • Posts: 0 danny

    Griffin, I especially enjoy Sutton’s little insights that we know he thinks are special. Doesn’t the whole Nats broadcast seem like a high school production?

    Nice start. KK needs to keep the ball down and the offense needs to keep rakin’.

    I actually don’t think the Nats guys are bad. I’d much rather listen to them than some other teams… the Astros come to mind as a team with brutal announcers.

    danny, I’m listening to the game on the computer. I’m curious to listen to the Nats announcers – are you listening on radio or TV? I want to get the full experience.

    That isnt a half bad article by Glanville. I liked him as a player too

    How’d you stumble upon this? NY Times? Mets Fan. Kidding.

    That run was Bruntlett’s fault, he should’ve been on the bag and they would’ve nailed that runner on third. What a crap run that was.

    Harry Kalas can say that Chuck Klein hit a triple in today’s game, I wouldn’t care. His greatness makes him immune to any gripes on accuracy.

    The biggest “homer” announcers are the White Sox by far. With Hawk Harrelson and company. They’re at least entertaining unlike…
    Sutton, who got dumped by the Braves and now is stuck doing the crappy Nats. Their play by play guy is just terrible.

     
  • Posts: 0 Jamie

    I absoltely hate Hawk Harrelson and that faggy “YEEEESSSS” bullshit he does after home runs. Absolutely makes me cringe. May the fleas of a thousand camels infest his privates.

    “put it on the booooooooard….YES!”

    yeah, it’s a little over the top. They openly root for the Sox. “Come on big Jim” when Thome is up.

    Is it just me, or is KK throwing way too many pitches tonight? At this pace, he’ll be lucky to get through 6.

    An EYE FOR AN EYE. Hit the Nats best player on the hand… good job KK.

    Anyone see how deathly afraid Lannan is everytime Flores sets up inside on Utley? He missed his inside spot on Utley at least 3 times in a row and all of em were juuuuust a bit outside (if you know what I’m sayin).

    typical Kendrick. We need to score at least 6 or 7 tonight.

    Well that was a freebie. Weird play.

    right now the Nats announcers are interviewing Ryan Langerhans dad. How’d they book that spot, he’s impossible to get!!
    The best part about the interview is that you can’t hear Langerhans’s dad at all. You just hear the announcers verbally fellate his son and then dead silence for 20 seconds.

    High comedy

    yes!!!

    There’s that fucking bum J-Roll hitting a home run again. Prick. Get him off the roster!

    Rollins baby. This is what we need, everybodys swinging the bat! Oh yeah!

    Jimmy Rollins… home run? Yes.
