Long Layoff!

Went to the Phillies game last night, and it was another great game by the Phils. A lot of homers, some nice pitching mixed in between, and the best part was that the heat wasn't killer. It has been awhile since I've been to a game, but this was the next one on my season ticket package plan. So far, the Phils have been rolling on this plan, so that's always good. Dan Haren was suppose to pitch for the D-Backs but he got traded away over the weekend, so we got to see former Oriole/Phillie Rodrigo Lopez, who pitch decent last night, but got killed by the long ball. This was also the first time in 2010 that I got to see Cole Hamels pitch. That now makes the following Phils I've seen start this year...Doc, Hamels, KK, Blanton, Moyer. I'm just missing Happ.

Best Regular Season Game...Perhaps...!

Went to the Phillies game last night and it was probably one of the best regular season games that I've ever been to for the Philadelphia Phillies. I love Cody Ransom, I really wish they would play him a lot more. I know they are paying Dobbs good money and he got that three run blast last night, but that AB by Ransom was just amazing. As soon as Uncle Ben got that walk, I had this feeling that something crazy was going to happen and it sure did. The fireworks show after the game was also great. Overall just an amazing night last night, plus the O's came back and won in extras against the Rangers. Speaking of the Rangers they also got Lee last night, and I'm glad the Yankees didn't get him, because that would have been just terrible. Lee will face the O's tonight, I wonder how that will go?

Two Excellent Games!

Forgot to post about this game, but real was a lot of fun and it was also Matt Wieters bobble head night. The O's won this game against the A's and against Ben Sheets. It was a lot of fun, and although Millwood pitched OK, he got his second win of the season! About time! It was very hot, but the seats were spacious and nice. Overall another fun game down at Camden Yards, and it was good to see the Orioles get the win.

(Note: For some odd reason, did not write an article about this game, so I just posted the Gameday preview/box score card.)

Tonight (7/5/10) I went to the Phillies/Braves game. That was also a lot of fun and I got to watch one of the best pitchers pitch tonight - Doc Halladay. Aside from one mistake pitch to Chipper, Doc went the whole way and beat the Braves. Which mind you, the Phillies really needed. I just want to say though...THIS WAS THE HOTTEST BALLGAME I EVER WENT TO! It was around 100-110 during the game, and it was crazy hot with 45,500 people there. Insane!

Also to update my fantasy team real quick, my new record is 74-73-9. I'm starting to get back on track!!
