    Thanks for ruining the game for me Ralph, I was just set to watch the replay of it on Armed Forces Network out here....I avoided hearing the score all morning for this! :mad:

    lol anyway glad to hear they won though, 1 game down! They couldn't get anything big going with the bats today?

    Sorry! I should have started a separate thread about discussion of the games. I will do that going forward so you can avoid the spoilers.

    It was a good game. Could have went either way.

    Rays hit into a couple killer double plays and the Phils did not hit. Typical for them when Hamels pitches.

    Could be tied up after tonight depending on whether or not Myers (Phillies) has a great game or decides to blow up like he has from time to time recently.

    Ralph, you know anything about Ryan Madsen. Phils eighth inning guy now. Two years ago he couldn't get me or you out, now he's acting like Mariano Rivera. He's lights out now. He clearly sold his soul for another shot. :p
    Be Not Afraid.

    Failed starter who has found his niche as a middle reliever. He's always had a good fastball, but in the past it was a little flat. I'd compare him to a Kyle Farnsworth type. He should be solid now, but the future is iffy.

    It's the transformation that has me scratching my head.

    Yes, failed starter. Yes, middle relief junk innings guy. I would have traded him for a bag of balls two years ago. But now he owns the 8th and he has a 97 MPH fastball and thinks he's the second coming of Dennis Eckersley (sans that Gibson thing). It's a strange game.
    Be Not Afraid.

    Quick thread kick to let the 7 Rays communists know that it's 2-1 in favor of the good guys.

    Game 4 in a few hours. To be honest, I don't have a good feeling about tonight.
