2009 Upper Deck #290 Ryan Howard

One of these nights, I'll get to add a highlight card to the 2009 Chachi set celebrating Jamie Moyer's 250th career victory. But not tonight.

Ryan Howard hit 2 home runs tonight (the first one was a BOMB), but the Phils lost to the Marlins, 5-3. The big blow came in the 4th inning, courtesy of ex-Phillie Wes Helms' 3-run home run. Jamie appeared to have struck out Wes on the pitch before the home run, but the home plate umpire disagreed. Wes finished the night 3 for 5 with 4 RBI. Sorta ex-Phillie Ronny Paulino knocked in the other Marlins' run.

Two other mistakes tonight: No way should Shane Victorino have been trying to steal in the bottom of the 9th with Matt Stairs up to bat as the potential tying run. Paulino threw out Shane at 2nd. And I should have waited in line for Chickie & Pete's crab fries. The fries would have nicely complimented the 2 dogs. Live and learn.

No question...Helms was struck out

ARGH...Wes Helms...he sucked when he was on the Phillies.

And crab fries rule. I would have chosen them in place of the dogs
