Calling on Beck



Gotta wonder if Raul Valdes would have served up a game winning 2-run shot in the 12th the way BJ Rosenberg did.  I never thought I would say this, but that's a bad BJ!  Calling up a righty for the sake of having another right-hander pitcher in the bullpen despite already having a reliable lefty that was retiring batters from both sides of the plate is stupid.  The Phillies deserve to lose. And lose is the one thing they are doing well.

i'm okay with the rosenber call-up. but i agree that valdez got a raw deal. qualls should have gone. and then diekman should be used as a loogy. it's obvious he struggles against righties but can get lefties out fairly easily.

wow, did anybody see that vicente del bosque is sitting torres and llorente and playing no strikers?! i'm very interested to see how they'll attack with a 4-6-0, especially since italy is ditching their typical four in the back and playing a 3-5-2 with midfielder de rossi playing as a sweeper. it's worked for napoli and even barcelona but those teams can dominate the midfield and possession, which i doubt the italians can do today. add in mario balotelli and the chance he'll get red carded at any minute and this match is shaping up to be a classic.

go phillies.

Here's a stat. When Cliff Lee pitches the other teams pitchers pitch better than him. Cliff Lee is winless because of Cliff Lee.

We Philadelphia sports fans have a reputation for anger. Some people wonder why. This 2012 Phillies season is a prime example as to why.

I was STUNNED to see that Valdes got sent down! He was damn near the ONLY reliable guy in the bullpen. Angry Phillies fans is right! The inmates must be running the asylum...
