The New York Mets and Florida Marlins were slaughtered. The Atlanta
Braves also lost. The Phillies had every opportunity to end April in
first place in the National League East. Unfortunately, the baseball
gods had other plan for the Phightin’ Phils. Jamie Moyer, on Jamie
Moyer bobble head night, was not sharp and although he battled, did not
make it through six innings and was charged with all 4 San Diego Padres
It was a cold night at the park and the Phillies bats were just not
working. They could not put anything together other than the two run
homerun that Chase Utley hit. I am still thawing out myself although it
would have been much easier to do had the Phillies won.

I really thought the Phillies would pull out the win tonight and
take control of the NL East. It would have been poetic considering the
past few Aprils. Still, the Phillies are in sole possession of second
place, only 1/2 game out of first place. Looking back at April, that is
a miracle. I am excited for May as the team usually plays better when
the weather heats up and we know the team will be better once Jimmy
Rollins makes his return.

The Phillies lost both games of the on deck series and walk into the season with no momentum for a third year in a row. Cole Hamels had a so so performance Friday night as the offense was no where to be found.
Today Jamie Moyer was less then stellar and although Pat Burrell hit a big three run
homerun, the Phillies only managed 6 hits. Moyer ended his Spring 2-2 with a 4.37 ERA and looks ready to have another typical Moyer season.
Jimmy Rollins does not share the concerns about the slow Spring and his .188 performance. He said, “I don’t really look at Spring Training numbers, they don’t mean
anything. My job this spring was to get the job done. I
use Spring Training as a time to find my hands and find myself in the
box. I use it to get a good swing on the ball. It’s, in a way, like
preseason football. You can see a guy like a Peyton Manning, and he’s
in there for maybe 10 plays and they pull him. You won’t see someone
like him concerning himself with a few incompletions.
“It’s the way I look at the spring. I can’t look too much into the
spring numbers. I use it as a time to work on things. Plus, I don’t
want to give too much away. You can have a pitcher who doesn’t know
what you like, where you like the ball, and you don’t want to show them
too much yourself. The season begins March 31.”
Let’s hope the Phillies can turn the switch because come Monday the games count. MyTeamRivals.com‘s Phightin’ Phils Phorum will be at opening day and provide all the inside scoop as well as pictures. Be sure to check it out!
