Game 156 - Thursday Night, September 22nd in Philadelphia
One Sentence Summary: Boooo!
What It Means: Another lazy, sloppy loss for the Phils as they limp into the postseason. The Phillies dropped their sixth in a row and their record is now 98-58.
At least I'm not a Red Sox fan. (Sorry, Section 36.)
What Went Wrong:
- Carlos Ruiz - 3 for 4
- John Mayberry, Jr. - 1 for 2, with a ninth inning double
- Everyone else in the line-up - 0 for 25
I recently added all my 2001 Phillies baseball cards to my Zistle Collection. As I was going through the process of adding cards, I actually giggled a few times at some of the zanier insert set names from Fleer's 2001 offerings. Some of my favorites include - Fleer Futures Bats to the Future, Fleer Premium Grip It and Rip It and Fleer Triple Crown Glamour Boys. I thought the card featured here was particularly appropriate, given the Phillies recent run of crappy play. "Sticktoitness" actually sounds like something manager Charlie Manuel would use in a sentence in a post-game interview.
