‘On The Road With psuGator02′ – Philadelphia Phillies – May 10, 2011

Tuesday, May 10

Would’ve been real disappointed if it hadn’t been such a great matchup (Johnson vs. Halladay).

Pregame near Phils’ dugout

Ryan Howard: 1/1 (’08 Ginter, state card) in blue Sharpie. sweetest Howard graph I’ve ever gotten. He made a face at my ghetto Sharpie, which broke in my suitcase while traveling to Arizona. But it still produces great graphs so I thought I’d keep it around. He signed all the way down the dugout, from home to third
Jimmy Rollins: 0/1 …Signed for a bunch of people who had field-level seats. Wouldn’t sign for anyone with 100-level seats
Joe Blanton: 0/1…Signed for a bunch of people who had field-level seats. Wouldn’t sign for anyone with 100-level seats..I actually had the Ginter two inches from him but he just put his head down and kept walking.

Postgame at Phils’ bus

Juan Samuel: he signed but I left my baseball book at home. UGH
Charlie Manuel: 0/1
Rich Dubee: 0/1
Cole Hamels: 0/1
Joe Blanton: 0/1
Brad Lidge: 0/1
Jimmy Rollins: 0/1

Other: Wilson Valdez and Jose Contreras also signed, but I didn’t need them.

Bring On The Phillies!!!

Bring On The Phillies!!!

OK, maybe this is not the best approach, but why not go into Philadelphia with a team that is full of confidence in their ability to win?

The Marlins are coming off of a series in which they won 2 out of 3 games from the Braves, and the team’s offense is clicking.  In fact, they’re winning games and scoring runs without the aid of Hanley Ramirez and Mike Stanton.  If those two guys can turn it on, maybe, just maybe ‘The Fish’ can continue their winning ways…

My fingers are crossed, but the opposition is real tough.  And while we’re not facing Roy Halladay or Cliff Lee during this road trip, the challenge of Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels is not a cake-walk either…

My fingers are crossed.  GO FISH!!!
