I Like It Like That

NLCS - Dodgers vs. Phillies

Game 4: Phillies 7, Dodgers 5
Series: Phillies 3 games to 1
"Not that I don't feel like I'm part of the team, but when you get that nice celebration coming in the dugout and you're getting your ass hammered by guys, there's no better feeling than to have that done."

--Phillies' pinch hitter Matt Stairs who hit the go ahead two run home run last evening to put the Phillies up 3 games to one in the NLCS.

Brotherly love indeed! Nice work Matt.

Hey Whitney, does Shane Victorino remind you of any diminutive Mets' (and later Phillies') outfielder sans the steroids and tobacco juice? I'm talking as a ballplayer of course, not as a character.

All is well on the Western Front. The Phils are taking care of business in a fashion which is deleterious on the hearts of their Phans but seemingly nourishing to this club. SoCal boy Cole Hamels will attempt to close down the NLCS tomorrow night. The Phils are, as Red Barber so often like to say, are in the catbird's seat.

I suppose I can see the likeness, Nick, but I will choose to ignore it. At least until you trade him to us with JC Romero for Moises Alou.

For pure symetry, you'd have to offer us Mr. Castillo.
