That is exactly what happened in today’s Phillies opener. Another author (that did a better job than i would have done) already recapped the game but just thought I would touch on certain points of the game that I noticed. Probably the most upsetting thing, Sarge did not say “Cadillac Time” or “Jumping in the Cadillac” when Howard crushed his homer. Nor was there a Tyler Walker apperance, although he did warm up in the bullpen which means he sweat enough to hydrate a third world country.
holy shit thats a big picture.
Other noteworthy occurrences, Polanco is on pace to hit 972 RBIs and 162 grandslams. While Roy Halladay cuttered (http://zoowithroy.blogspot.com/) 9 through 7, so pretty much a lock for Cy Young award. Nevermind the fact that they played the Nationals. I think the best part of the game was hearing the chants, whether it be a RAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLL chant or a LETS GO PHILLIES, any team that can pull that off in an opposing teams stadium should be commended.
The Phillies have a day of rest tomorrow as they await the match up of Hamels v. Marquis on Wednesday. I still think it should be Halladay vs. Marquis but what do I know. It will be our first chance of seeing if the “ex-ace” Hamels can show all the dumb people that he can still pitch (he’s always been able to pitch). Oh and since no one cares, I am now a Ravens fan for this year.
