Wow that is a bad lineup. Updates from anyone able to watch, listen or follow would be appreciated.

Go Phils!


  1. 3-2 Phils - Howard hit a 3-run bomb

    Mets have 2 unearned runs

  2. L.A. said Sheffield’s dropped fly ball in the 2nd looked like he missed it intentionally. He said it was like he slapped it to the ground.

  3. Howard with 2 homers and 5 RBI and it's only the 3rd inning.

    5-2 Phils!

  4. Howard with a 2-run shot! Dude is on fire. 5-2 Phils.

  5. 5 errors between the two teams and it's only the 3rd inning. Sounds like a sloppy game.

  6. Lee’s final line: 7 IP, 113 PC, 6 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K. Nasty

  7. Phils win 6-2.

    Scoreless 1-2-3 innings by Ho and Lidge

  8. Angel "The Human Oxymoron" Pagan led off the last two games with fake inside the park home runs but the Mets pitching is so bad that they were already losing by too much for it to even matter.

    I REALLY enjoy seeing that team lose!
