    Man, Jonny Gomes would be such an awesome hitter if he would always hit in his first at-bat every time at the plate.

    It's no biggie. It just struck me as funny.

    Could have been 2 runs in with only 1 out if not for the worst baserunner in the NL. Phillips should write a baseball book called "Everything I Know About Baserunning I learned from Ryan Freel."

    It's the memoirs modeled after Freel's autobiography: Balls to the Wall: Baserunning with Wreckless Abandon

    Thom with a nice euphemism...."I don't think anyone is suprised Yonder didn't work out in the outfield"

    I can't wait to see this play because BOTH Marty & Jeff are saying he did exactly the right thing in going for it and by hustling out of the box. They simply chalked it up to a perfect bounce off the wall mixed with a perfect throw by Braun. Sometimes you just have to tip your cap to the opposition and go about your business.

    But I'll hold off judgment until I watch it.

    He makes too many outs to get the benefit of the doubt IMO.

    Kind of unfair for Alonso's first start to be against a veteran lefty like Wolf.

    Phillips didn't stop to admire it or anything but he was certainly not busting out of the box.

    I hate Weeks. Just can't stand him. He always seems to do well against us.

    Hart hits a towering pop-up to Rolen for the first out.

    Braun at the plate with 1 out.
