Its Friday!!!  Are you ready for another round of Guess The Set?  Forget that big date you have tonight.  Blow off that important lunch meeting today.  This should be the only thing on your mind.  At 8:00 p.m. EST tonight I’ll let you know the answer in the comment section.  It could be a base set, insert, parallel or something from the future.

Phillies vs. Rays – 6/23/12

The Phillies took down the Rays 7-6 yesterday when Jim Thome hit a walk-off homer in the bottom of the 9th.  I also got to see Rollins hit a 2-run blast, and Pierre hit a 3-run shot.  It was a great day for a game.

I’ve been wanting to get one of those golf shirts you see The Sarge and Tom McCarthy wear in the broadcast booth, but you can only get them at the Majestic Clubhouse Store inside Citizens Bank Park.  I found a nice navy blue shirt with a white Phillies “P” in the corner.  They were also having a special on pins.  Buy three and the fourth is free.  I jumped all over that.

Orioles vs. Reds – 6/25/11

Last night the Orioles and Reds put on a show.  A combined 9 home runs were hit, the second most in Camden Yards history.  The Orioles lost 10-5.  I have never seen such a display of power between two teams before.  It was fun to see Scott Rolen again in-person.  I met Rolen many years ago at the first card show I attended.  At the time, he was just a prospect making his way up to the Phillies.  In the 7th, he belted a two-run homer.
