Phillies: Good News, Bad News… Coda

6 May

The good news?

The Phillies are on the West Coast this week so you’ll probably be asleep before the third inning.

The bad news?

Everything else.

But if you need a laugh this Monday morning, and who doesn’t, check out the rest of Good News Bad News (written BEFORE yesterday’s game.)  Don’t miss the Roy Halladay item.  Believe me, I’ve never been less happy to be right.

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!
