Ready to Rumble

October 3, 2007

Today’s Lineup
Rollins, ss; Victorino, rf; Utley, 2b; Howard, 1b; Rowand, cf; Burrell, lf; Helms, 3b; Ruiz, c; Hamels, p.

Carlos Ruiz’ ailing left elbow has improved and he’s behind the plate.  With a lefty going, Wes Helms gets the nod at third base.

The NLDS logos have been painted on the field, red/white/blue bunting is in place, players are in both clubhouses getting ready for the rumble that begins at 3:07 this afternoon.

Both teams are offensive machines, both teams catch the ball, both teams have some solid starting pitching and both teams have aces in the pen. Don’t expect any 1-0 games.

Coste to Coast
(Phillies fans coast-to-coast will be able to get an inside look from Chris Coste here during the postseason)
What an amazing season!  For me, it has felt like several different seasons in one.  Going from Clearwater to Ottawa in April, and then a brief stop in Philly when Ryan Howard went on the DL, and then down to Reading for a month before finally anchoring myself in the Phillies clubhouse in late June.  It is hard to comprehend that I am now in this position and got the incredible honor of catching the final pitch from Brett Myers that clinched the 2007 National League East Title.  Only one thing can make it better: catching the final pitch of the 2007 World Series!
Giddyup!

good luck today, phils. hey, thanks for the coste to coast insight. i had heard he was/had written a book about his journey to the bigs – is it out yet? if not, when is it coming out? if it is, can it be ordered online anywhere?

I’m counting down the minutes… It’s almost game time!

Anytime Helms is in the lineup I get concerned. Unfortunately he’ll probably be there at least two times with the Rockies starters.

Great comments from Coste. His story is inspirational…

Let’s go Phils!!!

I’m sure I’m not the only one to notice Mr. Corpas, Rockies closer deliberately pour a drink on the front of his shirt just before coming in and continually wiping his hand on his shirt, is this legal?

……maybe just expect a 4-2 phillie loss BRUTAL!!! haha, what did the so-called big three do?? did they strike out at all? lolololol
