Here’s a rundown of some recent/active PSC Phillies message board threads.
It was deja vu all over again as the Phillies followed up the Eagles ugly chokejob with one of their own. People weren’t happy Sunday afternoon, and now after Sunday night it’s even worse. Enter at your own risk. Click the thread title to check out each one…
[Editor’s note: this is the full 90+ page Game 2 Gameday Thread. It’s not pretty] The Phils send Cliff Lee to the hill tonight to try and give the Fightin’s a 2-0 series lead before heading to St. Louis. Lee is 3-1 with a 1.48 ERA in four career starts versus St. Louis, the most recent a six-hitter in a 4-0 win at Busch Stadium on June 22. He went 8-1 with a 1.27 ERA in his last 11 outings this season. Carpenter (11-9, 3.45) has also dominated opponents of late and was at his best when St. Louis needed him most Wednesday, helping the Cardinals clinch an improbable playoff berth in spectacular fashion. The right-hander, who went 3-0 with a 1.13 ERA over his last five starts, pitched his second shutout during that span and struck out a season-high 11 in an 8-0 victory at Houston. Should be a pretty good match-up tonight. The bats better come out early! Hopefully they can build on the offense that broke out last night. Looking for Chase to continue his success vs. Carpenter.

Roy and Cliff really have been disapointing. Halladay spotting 3 runs in the first. Lee looking like a 25 million dollar pile of dog shit last night. Disapointing. The offense has done enough to win so far.
Worst since Eric Gregg’s gift to the Marlins?
I know Vic is not the “smartest” ballplayer, but he played a big part in the loss. First going up there and swinging first pitch when you know Carpenter is having control issues was stupid. Add to that the route he ran on Craig’s double was just brutal. Was the wind blowing the ball, because that was one of the worst defensive plays I have ever seen him make. Not saying they would have won, but if he makes that catch, they’re still tied.
Don’t get me wrong. That loss was on Lee — a fact he acknowledged. The offense going to sleep didn’t help either. But the crowd in attendance had plenty of opportunities to rattle the Cardinals’ mediocre relievers. This is Philadelphia, the town that put so much pressure on Dodgers’ starting pitcher Burt Hooton in the 1977 NLCS that he issued three consecutive bases loaded walks. Jimmy was speaking the truth. What the hell has happened to us?
