Philadelphia Phillies: Good News, Bad News

5 May

The bad news?

The Phillies win streak is over.

The good news?

It was only two games in a row anyway.

The good news?

Last night Cole Hamels (except for two pitches) looked a lot like the guy the Phillies signed to the big bucks contract.

The bad news?

The Miami Marlins Jose Fernandez, a 20-year-old who doesn’t even have a major league contract, was better.

The good news?

Freddy Galvis, filling in for a resting Michael Young, got on base twice with a single and a walk.

The bad news?

Those were the only two times the Phils got a runner on first base.

The good news?

The groundskeepers won’t have to do much cleaning on the second and third base bags before today’s 2:35 start at Citizen’s Bank Park.

The bad news?

That’s because not a single Phillies batter reached second base last night.

The good news?

After a rough start, Cole Hamels has a 2.31 ERA in his last five starts.

The bad news?

The Phillies have scored three or fewer runs in four of them and Hamels is 1-2 (and the Phillies are 1-4) in those games.

The good news?

Roy Halladay takes the mound today looking to give the Phillies a critical series win against the Marlins.

The bad news?

Roy Halladay takes the mound today looking to give the Phillies a critical series win against the Marlins.

(You knew that one was coming, right?)

The good news?

It should be a beautiful day at the ballpark today for Mother’s Appreciation Day when all women 15 and older will get a Chase Utley tote bag.

The bad news?

You still have to watch the game!

    Hard to win with 1 hit, Harry.

    The good news is, the Phils are 4 out. The way they are playing, they should be down 15.
