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.

Wnkveyyw1All the bats played their part, heck, even Wrong ‘pitched’ in with a deep fly for an RBI. Johnny Damon went 3-3. What a signing that was. He’s proving his worth to us now.

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.

    I don’t know about David Pauley being a “good” rookie. Outside of the Yankee game, he’s been pretty bad. His RA is almost 8 and the league is hitting over .400 against him. The Yankees always struggle with against a pitcher they’ve never seen. Check out Pauley’s stats. He might develop into a good talent, but he definitely isn’t major league ready.

    The Yanks took the series and kept pace w/ the Sox. You couldn’t ask for more.



    First of all just let me say that the pressure is on both the Yanks and Bosox to start winning because the days of both of these teams going to the playoffs is history. There is a new kid in town and his name is Detroit. The Tigs join the White Sox and together they are fast becoming the new bullies in town. So I look a fierce second half of the season for both the East and the Central but the East certainly seems to have more at stake (at least to this point). GO TIGERS!!!
