2014 Gameday, Posts

Miami Marlins (39-43) at Philadelphia Phillies (36-46)

Starting Pitchers:
MIA: Henderson Alvarez (5-3, 2.32)
vs.
PHI: A.J. Burnett (5-7, 3.89)

Time: 7:10, Marlins Park
TV: Comcast Sportsnet
Weather: Overcast, 89
Media: Twitter and Facebook

A Note for Tonight: The Phillies will look to begin July on the right foot. The Phillies briefly had a hot streak, but they have returned to their losing ways, losing eight of their last ten games.  The Phillies are coming off a much needed off-day on Monday.  It won’t be easy for the Phillies offense: Henderson Alvarez is sixth in the Majors in ERA.

Lineup: Revere CF/ Rollins SS/ Utley 2B/ Howard 1B/ Byrd RF/ Asche 3B/ Brown LF/ Rupp C/ Burnett P

    I’ve never been known for my math skills, but it seems odd that we’re on gameday #80 when the team is 36-46, no?

      Maybe the count got out of sync when they missed a few games?

    I know the Phils have had a dramatic drop in attendance, but they are less embarrassing than this empty Marlins ballpark. And their park is air conditioned!

    Ruiz news not good.

    I think its bad and maybe wont see him at least this year and I don’t know going forward.

    In 20 years when I tell people he was the most important player on the 07-11 Phillies no one will believe me.

    But he was.

        I know you will. And Victorino was the second most important.

        thank you my friend!

    You guys are a few games behind. This is is not game number 80, it is I think 83 by now. I have been noticing and I was going to say something earlier but figured maybe you were in the process of working on it.

    How come bad teams play so many extra inning games?

    Oh this division is so bad.

    There should be no playoff spot for the winner.

      Nah. Not nearly as bad as the West.

    Gamboa looks like a promising talent.
