Cole Hamills pitched a very good game. He is the second good rookie we have come across this year, (1st being Sox, David Pauley) Both kids have bright futures ahead. Hamills gave us a hard time tonight and deserved better, but thankfully he didn’t and we won.
Wrong, again could’t give us more than 5 innings. Whats new there. The tired bullpen in Villone, Proctor, Farnsworth and Mo, did the polygrip act to get Jaret Wrong back to an even .500 at 4-4. It’s only the second shutout of the Phillies this season. The 1st was the Nationals earlier this month.
Maybe the Yankees are starting to make their late season surge earlier than the normal July 4th (old timers day) usual signal. Is it the sight of all the former greats that stir their loins, and gets their backsides in gear or is it just a regular coincidence. Eitherway the Phillies are a good team, not a brilliant one, but a definate bananna skin. So to come back from brotherly love city with a series win, especially the way we have been playing lately is a big plus.
Anyhow the big match tomorrow in the World Cup, without a shadow of a doubt, is U.S.A. Vs Ghana. I’m doing a live blog on the match from 10am over on my other site "Maddog’s World Cup Reports" If you can drop in and leave a comment.
