I have more interest in Robbie Krieger than the Mets.

Gary said something last night about this being more like a 7:30 start tonight because the Phils have some pre-game ceremonies going on.

Moment of silence for Darren Daulton and those lost in 2017.

Not a bad time to try that double steal thingie, 2-outs/2-strikes w/a hot pitcher on the mound.
And it almost worked but players these days have a habit of sliding too early so that by the time they reach the base they're skidding to a stop rather than busting through it which is
obviously most effective at home.

Mostly nit-picking here, but maybe a better slide gets him there. I don't think the new rules have helped either.

I so appreciate getting no commentary about Rosario's great play in the field while Gelbs was interviewing Jim Thome.

Kevin Burkhardt was the best at breaking away from his sideline duties to announce plays on the field and then returning to his fluff duties. Gelbs is no KB....

Was originally supposed to be Pete Rose Night, so I guess they figured they had to do something for all the people who bought tickets.
I believe that someday I will punch that arrogant foreman at the plant square on his fat nose; that I will get in the last word with my wife; that I will win the Irish sweepstakes; that the Mets will start a winning streak.

The Phillies also offered refunds to anyone who bought tickets for last night's or tonight's games who didn't want to come because the Pete Rose events were cancelled (last night was supposed to be a Pete Rose bobblehead giveaway). I don't like the team and I don't like the fans, but I've always found the Phillies' organization to be extremely classy and fan-friendly.

This is a good game. I'm casting an online stream found on Reddit to me TV using Chromecast as I do all the WPIX games these days.

Erick Goeddell looks like Danny Noonan from "Caddyshack," now that I get a good look at the face and the curly hair.

It's tempting to say that there's no harm in leaving Smith in at this point in the season but PH'ing Wilmer is the right move here.
Game's on the line, tough LH sidewinder out there, better power, etc.

I forgot about Amed Rosario's great defensive play when I awarded my Schaefer points for this game. May I please give him .5 for that?

Done!

But starting in 2018, there will be an "all votes are final" policy. Editing votes after the fact requires more effort than I care to put into this low-interest Schaefer project.

Fair enough, and many thanks!
