Phillies – dang.
Some small thoughts from this losing series…
1- Well, we were swept in the opening series last year. As everyone knows, this is a (only) second half team.
2 – Wandy: He should have been the opening day starter. Yes, I know his Spring Training performance was horrible and that most people feel he underperformed last year, but with Roy gone, Wandy should be the number one. Then, Mills has him pitch to Towles?! Why does Wandy have to pitch to Towles?
3 – Angel Sanchez. I’ve always liked him, even though the conventional wisdom (according to Alyson Footer and then Brian McTaggart and anyone else who answers Astros Mailbag) has been that he’s not a good enough major league hitter. Phooey! I’m glad he’s in uniform and I’m not missing Clint Barmes.
4 – Jason Michaels: I’m glad to see Jason Michaels! Even when he’s letting balls hit off his glove in left field I’m glad to see good old Mr. Clutch, Jason Michaels.
5 – Roy Oswalt: Still weird that he’s a Phillie. Not weird that he went inside on Carlos on Sunday, following Hunter’s home run.
Is anyone going to Fanfest?
