New-look Phillies are a lot more fun!
I have to say I like this new version of the Phillies better than the group of thugs and punks we’ve had to endure the last five years or so.
The Mets went nuts on Tuesday, punching out 11 runs while Jonathon Niese give up just one and three hits over eight innings.
David Wright is just making silly Giants voters look even sillier, launching a 3-run blast that moved him into third on the team’s all-time home run list.
But we expect that. How about Daniel Murphy going 4-for-5 with a near-cycle, taking a triple, two doubles and a single – and a sweet leaping catch!
All this scoring made me remember the 17-run game against the Cubs, which I predicted by unfurling the Flag of Victory at Wrigley last week.
