Tom “Flash” Gordon

Last night my Phillies lost again to the Marlins.  It was 2-2 during the bottom of the 9th and Cantu was up.  Tom “Flash” Gordon did it again.  He blew it for the Phillies.  He let Cantu hit a game winning grand slam.  Why is it that whenever “Flash” is in he does either really well or really bad.  In my opinion, the Phillies need better pitching.  Cole Hamels and Kyle Kendrick are probably the best pitchers they have and two men can’t do it alone.  Hamels did great last night striking out players into the double digits.  The Phillies have always needed pitching.  I think I have found the only good reason for the overproduction of cards in the mid 80’s to early 90’s.  This card will never go up in value.
