So Roy Halladay Pitched Yesterday (4.12.12 v the Marlins)


Roy Halladay is the best. Granted, the Phillies struggles so far have been owed to offensive woes, but it's nonetheless encouraging for a faltering unit to have a starter out there breaking faces and keeping it within striking distance (I'd imagine, dude I never played major league baseball I just write a bolg but I mean it makes sense).

And strike they did, in the form of a five run third inning. Correct- they did score six all series in Pittsburgh... thanks for reminding me.

"But ZWR, were there any symbolically darling moments that brought warmth to the collective hearts of everyone in attendance and/or watching the game via broadcast on their televisions or tabloid devices?!" 

Thanks for reminding me, again (for real this time)! Yes. +250000 points to last night's crowd for it's impromptu, proactive, uplifting support (in the form of stadium-wide chant) of slumping rookie Freddy Galvis during his post-massage third inning at bat. Unlike the cliche stereotype pushed by the lazy national media, you donkeys showed yourselves- in consecutive sellout number 206- once more to be amongst the best in baseball. Because of it, Galvis is now on pace for 130 RBIs out of the eight hole.

As Matt Gelb found out, HLHIII himself even appreciated it, "It says a lot about the fans we have right now that they were supporting him."

"Okay cool. But ZWR, what was the liiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeeeee?!?!??!"

Mid-season form over here. Check it: 7 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 3 K (2C, 1 SC), 1 BB (ump's fault), WIN #2, season ERA at 0.60. Zero-point-six-zero.

Things are gonna be fine, Doc's Doc, and a bit of the mojo was back last night. Let's keep it going tonight, fellas.

Notes
-- Michael Martinez is slightly less dead, though not yet alive.
-- John Buck, on whether he considered wearing his stupid mask to the plate against Halladay to protect his big dumb face, "Errr uhhh duhhh what?"
-- Juan Pierre's fiery ignition of the third inning explosion may have been the spark a dampened Phils offense needed to heat up and start cooking.
