Well, we learned Doc is human. He lost last night as the offense continued to sputter. Shane broke out of his funk which is a good sign.
Great front page headline in today’s Philadelphia Daily News: Powerball Winner, with a photo of a smiling Ryan Howard. Good to know the big guy will be a Phillie for a while. Not many 40 homer, 135 RBI guys on this universe.
Checking out this date in Phillies history, we have mixed results in playing the Giants. In 1965, we hit six home runs at SF and still lost, 14-13. Then, seven years ago, Kevin Millwood no-hit the Giants at the Vet. Don’t believe Jamie will duplicate the no-hitter.
