HERE WE GO IN PHILLY
News and Notes and Some Strange Stuff
So here we are...the first playoff game in 26 years, since game 7 of the 1982 World Series. My prediction was Phillies in 5, just because I think the Brewers pitching staff is starting to run on fumes, especially closer Solomon Torres....but I do think the Brewers split out here in Philly.
Other tidbits: I hope you saw the video we showed of Mike Cameron and Eric Gagne yesterday. Cameron kept singing, keeping everyone loose since this is the 4th time he's been in the postseason. Gagne brought 4 year old son Maddox to the park, a good Father-Son moment to soak in.
Ben Sheets off the playoff roster? No surprise. Tony Gwynn and Brad Nelson on it? Now that's a surprise. I had just talked to Dale Sveum in the clubhouse, when Joe Dillon came up to Sveum, said can we talk, and Dillon seemed none too pleased that he was left off the playoff roster.
And Phillies slugger Pat Burrell has more problems than injuring his back in batting practice. It seems that his dog, let's just say, relieved himself on the field in front of the pitcher's mound, killing the grass....so groundskeepers were tearing up the sod and putting new stuff down over the yellow grass!
