Pittsburgh Pimpin' truly ain't Easy; Pure Negative Conceit Park

The grace of the Western PA Gods have struck into the coal mining vein, hitting gold. An unreal last minute charge left our gents hurting, pants down.

This is going to be a short one, based on sheer amazement. I know I have mentioned the unpredictability of the game, but things are always out of YOUR control. Bringing a last minute win is something I have come to know in Philadelphia, but to realize the actual impact of such reliably consistent plays is a missed act. These maneuvers leave fans in awe, with statistics mongers in peril. Based on performance, our Phils have been up and down, also taking the cake when you least expect.

Tonight, forget all you knew. With Blanton doing 6 innings, and earning 3 runs,it made sense. But low and behold, things have changed a bit in the numbers category.

Fast Forward...............After getting fellas on base in the top o' 9, the Phils were sittin' pretty with a 4-3 lead heading into the basement. Lidge came in to the game; we could only be hopeful. Instead, it reminded me of things I have tried to forget in my past. Things that stink like bad feet... 6th loss of the season, throwing three hits and THE walk-off homer, sealing the deal. BL makes ya think. How much longer can we predict performance amongst the ranks? The best bullpen is only as silky as it's favorite J. Peterman rough wear button-down.

Sometimes it's all about the vent. Let go of the heat and let things feel the way you want them to. Rochelle, Rochelle.

Truly a reminder from the past. A way to show the reality of being a Philadelphia Phillies fan... See you soon.


A trout.
