I actually watched that shit show last night. I particularly enjoyed Paternity Leave's second AB. He comes up with a man on third, two outs, 0-0 game in the third. He's strikes out on three pitches, looking at all three. Of all the times not to swing wildly, he picks the time where a single would have been great.

And of course Nola was left in too long, somewhere around 105 pitches, and the bullpen brings in their usual batting practice flunkies.

I got to see a Rhys Hoskins base hit (and two more). That doesn't happen every day, so there was that.

Cold, hard numbers for the Phillies:

3.5 games out of the wildcard
29 games remain; 18 on the road
7 left against ATL, 5 against WAS, 5 against NYM, 3 against FLA

Meanwhile, the Cubbies only have 14 left outside the friendly confines, and the only team they play with a winning record in Sept is STL.

Ah yes. Watching the Phils bullpen blow yet another lead, but this time on national TV.

Just wanted to get this post in before it actually happens.

And now the Mets bullpen does its thing. Phils lead by three. Neris to get another chance in the 9th. :lol:.


Neris knocks them down in order for the win. All is forgiven.

But at least they have a pulse, unlike Washington fans.

Looks like the "ace" went poopy down his leg again yesterday, spotting the Reds a 5-0 lead. Tough to win games when that's your "ace".

But the offense bailed him out, only to see the bullpen cough it up on a couple of late homers — one by a relief pitcher. :wall:

Nola is not the problem with the team, obviously, but you do want your "ace" closer to a 3 than a 4 ERA, particularly in the NL. Nola is a solid 2 or 3 man, but not the stud you want to go to in an all-the--marbles scenario.

Agreed. He’s no Justin Verlander.

Why I'm even paying attention, I'm not sure, but boy are the Phillies about to piss away a great outing by Nola. Scoreless through 6, the BoSox finally get to him in the 7th.

Meanwhile, Paternity Leave and crew can't manage a single run through six.

Good job, losers.

Nola even got out of a bases loaded, one out jam in the top of the 7th without relief.

Phils did get him one run for a no-decision in the bottom of the 7th.

But damn, that should have been a W. Get him a couple of damn runs early,
