The Veterans Rule
- 1-0 Phillies
So, last night, these two teams had incredible pitching. Moyer absolutely shut us down. Maddux, who deserved 2 wins out of this game, made The Mistake, a solo homer to Pat Burrell. It wasn’t suprising that Burrell was the one who did Mad Dog in. But, of course, the Padres cannot overcome a 1 run deficit. Well, if the Padres want to be pathetic and lose 1-0, that’s their problem, not mine. The Phillies are a very good team. But this team, chock-full of hitting stars, got A run. That means our pitching was good. But then we didn’t score any runs, which means their pitching was better. We did have a few opportunities, but naturally we went down 1-2-3 after getting two runners on. Yeah, it was a pitcher’s duel, and I enjoyed it. But didn’t I say I liked a little offense with it?
We signed our first round draft pick, Allan Dykstra, last night. Tonight is the major league debuting Chad Reineke. We got him for Randy Wolf. Once again, I am really excited to see a new, young guy. I hope he does well! GO PADRES!
Who knows…Reineke might be a pleasant surprise. However, something tells me that the Phillies may have a surprise of their own for the rookie pitcher.
