While You Were Sleeping, Part 2

8 May

Another Phillies win while most of us were sound asleep.

Another win for Kyle Kendrick who is now 4-1 with a 2.45 ERA in seven starts.   Am I still dreaming???

Another game where Ryan Howard and Chase Utley both homered. It was the 50th time they have both homered in the same game.  Counting Utley/Howard home runs sure beats counting sheep!

Today’s game will be played in the daylight even on the East Coast as the teams play an afternoon game, start time 3:45 EST.  My advice is that we all plan a nice long afternoon nap on this rainy Wednesday.  This team seems to play a lot better when we’re not watching.

Thoughts and prayers go out to former Phillie J.A. Happ, now with the Toronto Blue Jays, hit in the head by a line drive last night at Tropicana Field.  He was taken off the field on a stretcher and is reportedly in stable condition at an area hospital.

Sure puts everything in perspective.  Yes, there are more important things than wins and losses.

Like this personal note. It was 31 years ago today that my long-time battery mate and I danced to a waltz version of  “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.” 

Happy Anniversary to the guy I still love to sit next to at the ballpark.
