Are all the ingredients there for a great series against the Yanks?

There’s many things going on in my head this morning. Although I have my own personal worries and concerns, I still find my thoughts on Phillies baseball. What has given me such joy in the beginning of the season has now been cause for frustration, consternation and speculation for me. A prominent Phil was even in a zany dream of mine last night.. To say I was surprised at the dream content and player would be an understatement.Let’s just leave it at that.

Wiil the Phils bring into this series all the frustrations and regrets of losing to the Yankees in World Series last year and be in full attack mode? Will the momentum and boost of the win on Sunday carry through? Will Halladay pitch another gem tonight with the aid and support this time of the offense? Has whatever’s been hanging over the Phillies head finally lifted ? I believe that there’s something more powerful and greater than what the eye can see  that’s responsible for the Phillies woes as of late.Will karma be restored and paid back.?. All of these questions will be answered in this series. I’m hoping for a favorable outcome.I anxiously await tonights game.

Something has also been puzzling me as well. Did anyone watch Sundays game and see the huge bird hoovering over Fenway Park? McCarthy and Wheels chatted about it and showed video of it. What kind of bird was it and was it a harbinger of things to come? I’m always interested in things like that.

Also, in the very dark crevise in the furthest corner of mind is this question. Will Werth be wearing a Yankees uniform next year?

It would break this everloving “Werthy” heart of mine to see it happen. Guess we’ll have to wait and see on that one. 



LOST Weekend it seems

I’m shaking my head this monday morning wondering whether this baseball weekend for the Phils were just a dream. Nope, it wasn’t. Oh well…

Halladay didn’t have his stuff yesterday. There was a dent in his “focus”. Red Sox worked their way through the dent and scored big. Phillies, on the other hand, did not.

Until the 9th, then, Werth doubled. Ibanez followed suit with his double. Werth scored. Gload homers. Ibanez scored. That was that.

Final score- 8-3. Phils lose


I’m going to borrow two worthy quotes from my favorite Phils from Todd Zolecki’s article “Phils determined to shake off offense woes”/ mlb.com

“I really don’t worry about this team offensively much,” Phillies left fielder Raul Ibanez said Sunday. “Because at any moment, everything will click and we’ll explode and it’ll be the same team that you guys have seen for the last few years. Obviously you’d like to be scoring runs and winning some games, but over the last few days we haven’t done that. But we’re really good about putting the bad days behind us and looking ahead.”


“Over the course of the season, you’re lucky and you’re unlucky,” Phillies right fielder Jayson Werth said. “That just makes us a little unlucky right now. It’s nothing to get too upset about or anything. It’s not like the end of the world. It’s not like we’re not hitting because we’re a bad club. … No big deal. The season continues on and so do the fightin’ Phils

I like what these two Phils have to say! It says “One day at a time, one game at a time” which has always been the Phillies mantra. Also, it says “We still have our Phightin spirit”

 Carry on and move forward, Phils!
