    i would not be surprised if howard is off tonight. if he plays, yeah one or two ab's. who knows on hamels. that's just a crap shoot because it's so limited

    Finish them. What more motivation do they need?

    They have a chance to win 102 games. No Phillies team in history has ever done that. They also, more importantly, have a chance to drive a stake through the heart of their closest division rival. To end their season with a resounding thud. To finish what they started earlier this month. The Braves came into CBP on September 5 with an 8 1/2 game lead in the Wild Card. They left after being swept, tomahawks between their legs, both bloodied AND bowed. Tonight, in the Braves' OWN HOUSE, they can stomp out the last flicker of light from their pathetic little candle.

    Champions are finishers. Finish these little ****ers.

    Zolecki said on ESPN that it would be full line-up tonight and they'd like to get Hamels in from like the 3rd-5th innings to maybe try and get him his 15th win.

    But yea, I'd also assume like two at-bats from Howard, but not sure right now.

    The Braves announcers mentioned last night that the Phillies will try to get Hamels his 15th victory tonight so expect him to pitch the 5th if the team has the lead. Then Joe Simpson said it was a ridiculous idea.

    Speaking of the Braves announcers, they're always passive aggressive when it comes to other teams and their players but they've been particularly bitter this series.

    Caray in Game 1: "Utley probably doesn't remember the last time the Braves and Phillies played", referring to his concussion.

    Simpson in Game 2: "Utley is not a gold glover but when you play 4 or 5 feet in the outfield grass, you have good range" after Freeman grounded out to Utley.

    Passive aggressive is for *******. Have Joe Simpson tell me that again when Uggla's playing short right field when Howard bats. And have him say it with a straight face. Can't really blame them though. Tough to be objective and rational when their team's been in our rear-view mirror since April and when they're about to blow an 8 1/2 game lead in 23 days.

    Do y'all realize that this Phils team was out of first place exactly ONE day all season, and it was by 1/2 a game? They were in second place to the Marlins on April 26--they were 15-8 and the Marlins were 15-7.

    Wire.
    To.
    Wire.

    The losing streak is just a bad memory now.
