Phillies' Game Looked Very Familiar

Cliff Lee deserved to win last night, but Kevin Frandsen's error allowed an eventually grand slam and Milwaukee Brewers win. Lee has pitched to a record that should be .500.

Charlie Manuel used Josh Lindblom in a situation that he would normally have used Jonathan Papelbon if he really wanted to get the win. However, the previous statement is rather misleading.

If the Phillies had an effective eighth inning option last night they wouldn't have lost the lead. Not having a strong middle inning contingent this season has cost the team many leads and created the need for Papelbon to pitch before the ninth inning.

It was okay for Manuel to experiment with someone like Lindblom last night, because he's trying to provide opportunities for younger players to succeed. That's standard procedure when a team knows (and has known for awhile) that this won't be their year.


I don't really care how this season plays out. Andy Reid has earned something from me that he never had before - full respect.

The manner in which he has handled his son's death has said more to me about who that man is than any football games ever have.

I respect him deeply and wish him the best all around. God Bless him and his family.


The 76ers new ownership group is incredible. Now that this trade has apparently been made, the team has been transformed from last season's playoff group.

This has become a far more balanced squad through all of the offseason moves. Most importantly, they will be led by Mr. Doug Collins. That great coach is ready to take Philadelphia's basketball team to new heights.


The injury that Andrej Meszaros suffered last week (torn right Achilles tendon) was repaired by surgery today. Obviously Philly fans connected this dire dot to that of Ryan Howard's same injury (left Achilles tendon) that happened at the end of last season.

Losing Meszaros is very troubling for this Flyers team. I'm not sure how Holmgren can compensate. Basically he and Peter Laviolette need two of their young defensemen to step up and play well all season long.

Baseball cards

For those of us who are old enough to remember When Baseball Cards were King, the spring is always a special time of year.

Bygone days spent with elementary school days and family members opening packs of Topps cardboard gold never truly fade away.
