Hey, I missed a lot in the last week. Let’s reminisce…
It’s official, the Phillies are on fiiiie-yah. 6-1 in the last week (go figure, my sister goes to the loss), and they swept the best home team in the bigs at their park. It seems like the hotter this team gets, the hotter the weather gets; or is it vice versa? Either way, they now go to Florida with their three best pitchers on the bump for a series with the Marlins. Oh yeah, and a chance to blow the division wide open a month before the All-Star Game.
More after the jump…
While the Phils were busy winning, the Queens of Queens were swept (the ol’ 4 game sweep none the less) by the San Diego Padres after Wagner blows a save on Sunday. In the words of Vin Scully after game 6 of the ’86 World Series, “If one picture is worth a thousand words, you have seen about a million words…”
Yeah, heat advisory!
Driver nine is heating up too, as are the rest of the drivers. Having been there once, I’d say Pocono has got to go, or be shortened to 400 miles if NASCAR doesn’t want to rhyme.
It’s looking good for next week.
The maroon and white continued to fight and now are 6-1.
