Yep. Saw that last night.
-Looks like Shane Victorino will be getting a little bit of playing time with Rowand likely gone to the DL for a while. I'm eager to see how Shane will play.
-Tonight, Cole Hamels vs. the Reds. Not that I'm in the business of second-guessing management ... actually I think I am, but I question the wisdom of sending a rookie out to pitch his first game on the road, and against a team leading the NL in OBP, slugging percentage, isolated power, and runs scored, in a park that was rated the second easiest park to score a run or hit a home run in. Great American had the same park factor when it comes to runs as Citizens and it had a worse park factor when it came to home runs. I think this is shaping up to be a disaster.
See you all monday!
if he gets blasted, he got blasted in the worst pitcher's park against the best hitters.
if he does alright, it would be viewed as a real achievement given the above factors.
if he does well, man oh man.
