Flyers, Sixers and Eagles:
Guess that means it's Phillies, Phillies, Phillies for everybody, unless you're a diehard Soul fan or something. By the way, are there diehard Soul fans? I know two things about the Soul: Jon Bon Jovi and Ron Jaworski. Anyway ... the Phillies lost yesterday to the Toronto Blue Jays at Citizens Bank Park, 6-5, to finish their six-game homestand 3-3. They'll need to play better on their seven-game road trip through Washington and Houston.
It looked like the Phillies had something cooking in the sixth inning until the rain and Roy Halladay arrived to kill a rally.
"You have to give him credit," Pat Burrell said about Halladay pitching in relief. "That's their ace and he says, 'I want the ball.' That's impressive."
Just wondering: still necessary to boo Scott Rolen every time he comes to bat? I'm wondering what some fans think Rolen thinks when he hears the boos? I'm guessing it's not guilt or remorse or fear. It's more along the lines of, "Boy, I can't believe these people still keep booing me like this. I haven't played here since 2002. This is pretty funny."
