As Francisco was walking to the plate all I did was make fun of him, calling him Cerrano from Major League. My buddy says "but he gets good swings", I replied "yea but they're usually not too close too the ball". THWACK, 3 run homer and I'm eating the best tasting crow I ever had. Unbelievable.

What a game, awesome outing by Cole, although he ran alot of high counts, but he didn't give up his usual home run. Big ####### win boys!!! Now let's close this #### out and move on to the NLCS!!!!

:thumbup: i need something to pick me up from this game tonight, and i am hoping this stat holds true. i also hope Friday's game is not a heartbreaker their 2 losses have been, would love for the Phils to go up a ton early and then just hide for an hour and come back with Big Roy still pitching in the 8th or 9th to close it out

This is exactly what I think is going to happen. Phils will jump out to an early 3-0 lead, tack on a few runs in the middle innings and Halladay will go the complete game. Don't see them losing this game at home with this pitching matchup. Also, their bats are definitely due for a big game.

Last pitch of the 2010 NLCS must have him shook.

If the Phillies lose on Friday, will it be the greatest choke in Philadelphia sports history?

This team, with those starters, was expected to win.. I for one, am nervous :unsure:

I think they need to go back to the original lineup. What they have now isn't working and chase is hitting better again.

Rollins

Victorino

Utley

Howard

Pence

Ibanez

Polanco

Ruiz

Doc

Charlie usually shuffles the order when they aint hitting. Hopefully he goes back to the tride and true. Pence looks lost as the 3 hole guy and victorino can't handle the 5 hole.

I think the problem is Polanco and Ruiz. The 7-8-9 hitters this series are 4-39 (not counting pinch hitter). The Cards 7-8-9 are 12-35. Those two have been horrible and they are rally killers because by the time the top of the order comes up there are 1 or 2 outs and nobody on.EDIT: But Victorino's approach to the plate is horrible, always has been. I think a flip flop of Vic and Ibanez would be better then moving Utley and Pence. Edited by Snotbubbles

I'm still wondering why Mayberry didn't replace Ibanez to face Rhodes to lead off the seventh. You can take loyalty and stick in your ### Chollie, gotta do what's right in the moment.

So I just went and checked the boxscores.

Whenever Jimmy Rollins leads off an inning or comes to the plate with 0 outs the Phils score:

Game 1

1st: 0 run

4th: 1 run

6th: 5 runs

7th: 3 runs (Halladay led off with a single)

Game 2

1st: 3 runs

Game 3

1st: 0 run

Game 4

1st: 2 runs

8th: 1 run (Gload led off with a single)

14 of the 21 runs came in this situation.

Even with Carpenter on the mound, the Phils are -200 in Vegas. Interesting.

I think that's because usually when a pitcher pitches on 3 days rest like Carpenter did, it isn't the 3 days rest game that give them trouble (although it did Carpenter), it's usually the game after that is shakey.Plus, I have almost no doubt in my mind that Halladay will be going 9 innings today even if he has to throw 150 pitches and will be giving up 2 runs or less. I believe the Phils magic number in todays game will be 3. They score that, and I think they advance.

The Doc is in. We got this even if it ends 1-0.

:goodposting: There's not a SP in baseball I'd rather have pitching for me in an elimination game than Halladay. I'm going to say the Phils win 4-1 tonight.

I just don't get the lineup. Charlie changed it at the end of the year after the 8 game losing streak but its obviously not working right now. Pence was brought here to protect Howard. He can't protect him in the 3 hole. Victorino is wasted in the 5 hole. He's either a pop at the 7 spot or needs to be in the 2. Utley was moved to the 2 cause he wasn't hitting. Now he is so move him back to the 3. Hope Doc shuts it down tonight.

I can see Charlie not wanting to make it look like a desperation move though. Although the team is pretty resilient - I guess he worried about their psyche then. I wouldn't be surprised, should they advance, that he does switch it up then.

Raul missing that HR by a few feet was heart-breaking. Nice to see the Phils getting some nice contact on the ball, but i will feel much better when they finally get a run on the board

I guess that's the answer to the question what's worse than a called strike three to eliminate your team from the playoffs

Would have been worse if he smashed one but then couldn't run.

Serious question: what would have happened had Howard hit a HR on that pitch but was unable to then run around the bases?

I'm pretty sure he would crawl around the bases if it came to that.

From what I heard, since a HR is not in play, they would be allowed to pinch run someone around the bases. Had he hit a ball in play he wouldve been doing the crab to first base.

No I would like to think Pujols and Carpenter would have picked him up and carried him around the bases
