Verisimilitude and Nitwittedness ….

Phillies Outside

This weekend is what makes baseball a great sport, not a good sport, a GREAT
sport. With something on the line for 6 teams going into the final day of the
regular season, it is without a doubt, tense and nervous for some, exciting and
fun for others.

Just when you thought those teams that are comfortable will just sit back and
watch, along comes Charlie Manuel….

…. to place credibility back into the last weekend of the season. Initially
yesterdays line-up may have appeared a little weak compared to the last time the
Phillies and Braves met, but the game became a fight to the end with the
Phillies rookie Vance Worley giving a commanding performance thru 5 innings and
then the Phillies bullpen blanking the Braves thru the final 4 innings to give
the Phillies a 7-0 shut out on the day the Braves honored Bobby Cox.

Today I believe the Phillies may have jumped past Michael Vick to become the
most hated entity in Atlanta. Some Braves fans feel since the Phillies are in
why they don’t lay down and let the Braves get to the post season, as Charlie
Manuel said, "How is that fair to the Padres and Giants", so suck it
up Atlanta and win because you can, not because the Phillies let you.

The Yankees had a double header, while the Rays tried to find a way to beat
the Royals. The Rays managed to shut the Royals out in a 4-0 win, while the
Yankees took game 1 from the BoSox and looked like they may even sweep the
double header, except it was AJ on the mound and sometimes his cry baby attitude
gets the better of him….

….AJ’s mind went like this: let me check to make sure the
umpire called that play correctly, cause we all know, if I argue he’ll change
his mind, oh and while I argue let me see if I can trick the BoSox into thinking
it’s a dead ball.
DOH! 

It seems the only guy he tricked was Berkman, who just stood
there and looked dumb. Now I would like to know when AJ entered the dug out and
went down the steps, what the hell did AJ say to Girardi, it almost looked as
though AJ was blaming Girardi, and Girardi had this look on his face as if to
say AJ your just fu-cking crazy.

So we have the AL East all tied up again, but today it will be
decided, the winner of the east will also get home field advantage, the Yankees
passed the advantage back to the Rays yesterday, because now the Yankees need a
win and a Rays loss to clinch, so do they stay in Boston to find out or do they
grab everything and rush back to New York to see if they can celebrate.

The NL is a little more screwed up, the scenarios are bountiful,
the bottom line is the right wins and loses and there could be baseball everyday
till the post season starts. So we know the Phillies have home field in the NL,
but who will they play, we don’t know, since we could have 4 teams with the same
record at the end of today.

The introduction of video replay on the possibility of a home
run ball was supposed to make things right, everyone keeps saying we need more
video replays, to many errors by the umpires. What if the video replay shows one
thing yet they still make the wrong call after seeing it….

….there you have it fan interference, wait they’re playing in
Ohio, okay that means it must be a home run ball then. If you didn’t see this
then it’s worth a look, no matter how many time I replay it I still see the fan
reach over the fence touch the ball with his glove at the same time he hits the
fielders glove. The ball could have been caught by the fielder, if it wasn’t
caught it appears it may have hit the top of the wall and come back into play.
So how then will video replay prevent the umpires from getting in wrong, okay
it’ll involve someone in New York who’ll review it, lot of good that did.

This the last day of regular season is probably one of the most
exciting final days since they went to divisional play. We will at least know
the outcome of the American League battles and who the AL East champions are, as
for the National League, this could be done today or it could take till the end
of Tuesday for us to know.

3 Days to post season play – GO PHILLIES….

The ‘Waiting Game’…

… gets harder and harder as the post
season progresses.

That feeling of anticipation as each game
progresses as you get closer to the final out of each game, becomes a
drug, an addiction, when the game is finally over, if your team wins
there’s that state of euphoria, but it isn’t long before you just want
the next game to start again, you want that feeling of anticipation, you
long for your team to be back out there battling it out for the ultimate
prize in Major League Baseball.

I was not expecting to have to wait till
the 7th day before I saw the Phillies
back out on the field again, both the ALCS and the NLCS
had the makings of being 7 game series.

The ALCS between the Angels
and the Yankees could be just that, with the Angels
winning last night in an exciting 9 innings it has now driven the series
back to New York with the Yankees holding on to a 3
games to 2 lead.

The Phillies
managed to seal the deal in 5 games, taking a 4-1 series win over the Dodgers
in true Philadelphia style, in the 3rd game to be played at CBP
before heading back to LA the Phillies
clinched the NL crown.

So now we have to sit back and wait to
see who we will face in the 2009 World Series scheduled to start
this coming Wednesday. For the Philadelphia Phillies
I am not sure if they have a preference, since home field advantage is
with the winners of the ALCS.

The pro’s and con’s of facing each team
are obviously long, when you consider each teams line-up and each teams
starting rotation, but they’re the obvious points to reference when
looking into reasoning, but when evaluating the pro’s and con’s, in
simple terms it would be better if the Phillies
played the Yankees in the World Series, for 3
reasonable reasons, color, distance and the memories.

COLOR

If everyone in the stands is wearing red
and waving rally towels, it would confuse the players, they wouldn’t
know if it were the pitcher or batter that was being cheered. So we need
a team that wears the color blue
to play against.

DISTANCE

This really is a no-brainer, having to
contend with west coast times during the World Series would make
me very tired each morning. Keeping an east coast timetable and giving
the players a short little trip to New York where the Phillies
have already played this year would make so much more sense.

MEMORIES

It was fun watching the Phillies
at the new Yankee Stadium back in May, I remember the first game,
first pitch, Jimmy Rollins went deep off of AJ, next
batter Utley, AJ threw the ball right at him and hit him
square on the shoulder. The 3 game set went in favor of the Phillies
2-1, but that was way back in May and both teams are a lot different
now. Although with AJ and CC in the Yankees rotation they
both bring back memories when facing the Phillies.

Back to the ‘Waiting Game
although irritating and annoying for Phillies
fans, it is considerably short at 7 days (now down to 4 days)
compared to other NL team fans who are having to wait and see if there
team will have a shot next year.

As for the World Series match-up

it will be, who it will be
