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.

How Does The Pat Burrell Deal Make Me Feel?

Photobucket

Here is Pat Burrell, with what looks like a lost child in the Rays locker room.  Burrell will always remain one of my favorite Phillies of all-time, but I really wish he would have stayed.  I guess this is what to expect after a team wins the World Series.  His signature swing will remain one of the Phillies most memorable.  Now that he has turned to the darkside, lets hope the Phillie’s new outfielder will do just a good job as Burrell did.  I can still remember when I received his 1999 Upper Deck Signature Edition Rookie autograph 8 years ago.  By the way, when I heard Burrell made a deal with the Rays, there was only one video on YouTube that could express the way I feel 🙂

Game 1: Phillies Win 3-2

vs.

I would really like to see the Philadelphia Phillies and the Tampa Bay Rays play against each other in this year’s World Series.  The Rays are a perfect example of team that doesn’t have the highest paid players in the MLB but can still go far.  Tampa Bay has made it a lot further than the Yankees who have some of the highest paid players in baseball.  I am a big Phillies fan and I would love to see them make it to the World Series.  This is the best I have seen the Phillies do ever since I started watching them back in the mid 90’s.  I’m glad to see some different teams in the playoffs this year.  Go Phillies and go Rays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
