I'd love to see our pitchers face our lineup sometime.

These games really do have that rivalry/playoff type feel to them.

I honestly in no way fear Howard. I know dude has mad power but his average is so bad and anytime there are two strikes I feel like its a guaranteed K. (Now he's gonna have a monster game cuz I said that) but its like any time there are two strikes he will swing at anything. I wonder What his average is with two strikes?

i expected howard to struggle he just stinks against lefties...Howard is what he is..a big power bat that will stike out alot but dirve you in 140 rbis a year..i love the guy..my favorite Philly...if howard only struck out 100 times a year and batted .300 every year hed be the greatest hitter to ever play the game...hes not that

He does what he does. I dont know why they even let Righties throw to him. Walk him fat butt. I would let the lefties throw all day and his average would be .126 with no homers at the end of the year.
Another pretty crazy stat is that Howards average in wins is .305 and in loses its .149

So apparently your offense relys on him. f**k it, id walk him if i wasnt a superior pitching team

I will pay my respect to the threat of the Phillies... they are damn good.

problem is, last year in the playoffs WAS the real Cody Ross. its part of who he is as a player. he plays like a 4th OF most the time, but when he gets hot, he gets white hot. it just so happened that he got white hot at the perfect time for us.

so while he isnt that player all the time, its still a part of his game. if you re-watch those games (and im sure you have no interest in doing so), Ross beat Halladay on those pitches. they werent bad pitches, he was just seeing it big.

Surprising since he's only a "very good" pitcher.
