Happ vs. Halladay..What?

My first back-to-back games in a long time. I was very glad to see this match up of Happ vs. Halladay. Unfortunately though for the Phillies Happ and the Astros were the better team that night and they beat the Phillies. I really liked watching J.A. Happ when he was with us from the minors to his last start. He's going to be a great pitcher in the future and have a nice career, hopefully he does a lot of great things fro the Astros organization. But I was a little disappointed about going to two straight back-to-back loses. That cramps my style, but the bottom line is that the Phils are not hitting, and when we are not hitting, we are not going to win many games. Maybe we end our troubles on the road?

16 IP and the LFer Roy Oswalt

First off this was the longest game that I have ever been to, and it was the longest Phillies game ever played at CBP. This game was so insane, and originally I didn't have this game on my plan, but because it was Chooch's bobble head night, and since I love Chooch I got my tickets well ahead of time. I got SRO (Standing Room Only) and the game was a lot of fun, although I can't say the name for Scott Barry. Even though the Phillies lose this game, I'm very glad I went because it was probably the most strangest, but best lose that I ever attended. If that makes any sense. See Oswalt in LF and getting that fly-out was so priceless. God, I love baseball.

I found this picture on Google of the bobblehead. It's really cool and goes great with the Doc Halladay one.

Pretty late on this entry but I went to the Phillies/Mets game that was last week and it was a lot of fun. The Phillies lost, but Hamels pitched great, Johan just pitched better. It was a great night and the park was jumping amidst the great pitching duel. This was one of the first games that I've been to in awhile where the Phillies lost, but that's OK. They are not going to win every game I go too. Either way, I'm looking forward to the playoff push and the great baseball that the O's are playing under Buck.

I went to the Orioles game on Thursday when they won their third game under new manger Buck Showalter. It was also Nick's bobble-head night and now all the O's promotions on bobble-heads are over. This game was great and a lot of fun, I'm glad I went.
