It’s the final tuneup of the regular season!  After today, it’s on to the postseason.  Even though the Phillies are already in, they have business to take care of.  The Atlanta Braves are tied with the San Diego Padres for the Wild Card.  It would be great if the Phillies can kick the Braves out of playoff contention.  The Phillies would have an easier road in the postseason if San Diego wins the Wild Card.

The Braves are on the verge of getting swept by a team who has played Triple-A players.  In addition, they might miss the postseason.  It can’t get much worse for Atlanta, especially knowing that two aces are pitching against them today.  Cole Hamels AND Roy Owalt will be teaming up;  Hamels will start, and Oswalt will relieve.  The Phillies don’t want either to go long enough where they could get injured, but they also want their players to be in a rhythm for the postseason.

Beck'sYour Gameday Beer – Beck’s
Beck’s, a classic German Brewery, provides tonight’s beer like a present wrapped neatly in tin foil. It’s certainly not the best German beer but it is popular and widely available. Like similar mass-produced pilsners it has that traditional rice and corn beer taste, though not has strong as a Bud or Miller product. It of course goes well with Wiener Schnitzel otherwise known as veal cutlets. – By Brian

GO PHILLIES!

    You know my thoughts on this game.

    Have to say would be funny as crap if the Iron Pigs swept the Braves and Bobby cox under these circumstances.

    My last game Chris Wheeler.
    I am excited.

    And of course Cole and Roy2 are appearing in the same game in Atlanta, where they can’t properly appreciate the fact of seeing two of our three-headed monster in the same game.

    No worries. Let’s give Bobby Cox a great send-off to retirement!

    With the exception of our pitcher’s spot, this is almost the same line-up as Opening Day at Citizens Bank South.

    I am intrigued by the idea of a 3 way tie and all that would do to the 3 teams.
    Also to beat atlanta and knock them out and end thier season and Bobbys career is pretty funny.

    Making sure everyone knows

    phils win giants win= phils play reds wed
    phils win padres win = phils play SF on wed
    phils lose giants lose= phils face winner of playoff games
    phils lose padres lose= phils play reds wed

    the braves should just forfeit and walk off the field
    what a JOKE

    see what happens pitching guys on short rest
    its NEVER a good idea

    If ruiz is hurt its a devastator

    but hes a tough guy

     
  • Phillies are really,really,really good!!!!!

     
  • Posts: 0 Tracey

    @Andrew: Yeah, I gather that this is the second time in a row that this guy has pitched on short rest.

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from waldorf

    Personally id rather have Mayberry in the playoffs vs a right handed pitcher than dobbs

    I am big on pitching on reg rest and so is Charlie Manuel. Another reason he is a better manager than Cocks.

    so much for oswalt out of the pen

    but this isnt a big deal

    listen to these dumbass fans
    you should be embarrassed

    best thing for the phillies today to happen is braves win and padres win

    When I saw Ruiz in the lineup I was shaking my head. Hudson’s a punk.

     
  • @ANDREW-I SEE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING………IT WOULD BE GOOD FOR THESE OTHER TEAMS TO USE ALL THERE PITCHING!!!

     
  • @ANDREW-ONE THING WITH THE REDS THOUGH IS IF REDS HAVE A LEAD LATE,NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT 105 MPH FASTBALL FROM CHAPMAN…………

    Are we even trying to win this game? It definately does not look it.

    This is good… now Baez won’t have a chance of getting into the postseason roster over Bastardo… and we’re losing, which is what we need to do. lol

     
  • Posts: 0 Tracey

    Yeah, bye bye Danny. Pack your bags; you won’t be playing again this year.

    and those damn annoying tomahawk chops. sad……

    It is amazing that the Braves have some many fans today. The entire season had a 90percent empty ballpark and no fans but today, the last game of the year, the stadium is filled. lol.

    I really hope that next season Ruben doesn’t fill the back and of our pen with a bunch of guys who can’t pitch

    now danny baez has zero chance of making playoff roster so i guess their is some good there…i think the phillies should just get rid of the guy…

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from waldorf

    cough cough

    nice use of Baez
    now for herndon LOL

    Agree on ruiz if hes hurt will be very bad. He should have been sitting.

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from waldorf

    This isnt good
    i dont want to see joe knocked around like this

     
  • NICE PLAY BY HOWARD..LOL

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from waldorf

    The braves fans are the worst

    re they going to have champagne if they win?
    even if they win they clinch nothing but a ticket to a possible playoff game if SD beats SF

    what a joke. the worst team EVER to make the playoffs IMO if they make it

     
  • CARLOS IS FINE……….

     
  • Well, this is a fitting end to Danys Baez’s season. Signed to a 2-year, $5.25M deal and is an unequivocal disappointment.

     
  • Cole Hamels finishes with a career-best 3.06 ERA. Roy Oswalt’s 2.76 is his best since his rookie season (2001).

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from waldorf

    we got baez next year too?

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from waldorf

    @ biz
    IMO signing short relievers is the #1 goal this off season

     
  • Carlos Ruiz finishes with a 0.3995 OBP. He’s the first regular NL catcher since Mitch Meluskey (2000) to have a .400 OBP.

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from waldorf

    These fans make me laugh
    where were you all year?

     
  • @ANDREW-YEPPER….LOL

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from waldorf

    i gotta get going off to watch the eagles and my man vick. yes i started him this week!
    now we need for SD to win if this holds and the nl is in chaos
    and even if Sd doesnt win we get the reds which isnt a bad thing

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from waldorf

    I think baez yuo just cut and eat the contract

     
  • Posts: 0 ChuckS

    1 hit, embrassing pitching perfromaces, hopefully Wednesday is a lot better

     
  • WELL-WELL-NOW J.C. IS HURT…..

     
  • Posts: 0 biz

    Andrew – I agree. We need 2 stud relievers.

    Jay – What did you hear about Chooooooch?

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from waldorf

    i wanted bastardo and romerz

    hope JC is ok

     
  • NOTHING YET BIZ,BUT I THINK HE WILL BE OK………..

     
  • Phils options for second LHP behind Bastardo: 1. Mike Zagurski, 2. Jamie Moyer at 60 percent. 3. Danys Baez throwing lefthanded
