Philadelphia Phillies Discussion Thread
 
I know not all of you Eagles fans are Phillies fans, but a lot of the other team boards have threads dedicated to other local teams. Feel free to post about the team, stupid Manuel managerial decisions, trades, etc.

I'll be in town this weekend for Mother's Day. Taking my parents to see the Phils-Cubs game on Saturday afternoon. Can't wait to see CB Park for the first time in 2007. Kind of a crappy pitching matchup, but I'll deal with it. If Friday gets rained out, then we might get Rich Hill-Cole Hamels, which would be fantastic...

CBP is a great park but one thing that sucks about it is that there is so much to see but you obviously dont want to waste your time walking around to see the stuff during the game. i would suggest going into the stadium early so u can experience the stadium fully.

bsaza2358 05-10-2007 12:13 PM

I've been there for probably a dozen games. I love the park, and I've done my walking around. Thanks for the advice, though. Very good thought for first time visitors.

bsaza2358 05-10-2007 12:14 PM

Where do you guys eat when you go to CB? I LOVE the Schmidter sandwich over by the left field flag. Fantastic eat, and it could be the best bang/buck deal in the park. 2 Schmidters + 3 Yeunglings = a great first 3 innings.

Grizzlegom 05-10-2007 12:22 PM

i usually bring my own food and tailgate since ive been there a lot so its cheaper to do that but if i do buy food i usually get ribs from Bull's BBQ. other than that, i try to go to every Dollar Dog Day and my friends and i have contests to see who can eat the most.

bsaza2358 05-10-2007 12:30 PM

Being down in DC, we only have the crappy Nats to really watch, but I go to as many Phils-Nats games as possible. I time my trips home in the spring/summer/fall to match up with the Phillies if I can.

bsaza2358 05-11-2007 10:31 AM

HUGE pitching matchup tonight. Cole Hamels vs. Rich Hill. I wish I was attending this game, but I'm going tomorrow. I highly recommend it if you're in town.

jonbrodo17 05-13-2007 09:34 AM

i got great season tickets and saw that Hill Vs. Cole game. I usually eat at Bulls BBQ

Jimmy 05-13-2007 09:37 AM

2nd favorite team to the rockies because jimmy rollins = god... cool name too

bsaza2358 05-14-2007 08:31 AM

Great time at the game Saturday. Got myself 2 Schmidters. It was a good time until the rain delay, but I actually witnessed a comeback, and Myers was absolutely sick. Great stuff.

RyanLeaf#1 05-15-2007 08:37 AM

6 runs in the 8th last night. Nice win for the Fightins

bsaza2358 05-15-2007 08:43 AM

I was playing hockey and missed the actual play-by-play, but I was able to dl it from the mlb.tv site. Great hitting. Lousy pitching by Turnbow, but the Phillies had good AB's in that inning. The blossoming of Chase Utley into the clear go-to guy in that lineup is fantastic. If the team keeps winning, Howard can take his time and come back 100% healthy. At this point, I'd rather that happen.

bsaza2358 05-15-2007 01:16 PM

Myers has been lights out since he went to the bullpen. He has been dynamite as the closer. When Gordon comes off the DL, will Myers leave, or is Gordon now the 8th inning guy?

Bigp5437 05-15-2007 01:54 PM

I really see no reason for Myers to stop his role as the closer. He's showed he can handle it so far, why not keep him there longer? Gordon can rotate or be the 8th inning guy, and if something happens with Myers, we already have an established closer that can come back and take over.

bsaza2358 05-15-2007 03:09 PM

Agree 100%. With Myers' momentum, you can't take him out of the bullpen. The team is winning, and the rotation is holding up better than expected without Myers. Stick with what works. A playoff bullpen rotation of Alfonseca/Geary/Madsen, getting to Gordon in the 8th, then Myers works fine for me.

RyanLeaf#1 05-16-2007 09:16 AM

I hear ya Ruiz with the walk off. It was sweet Larry Anderson on the radio said Ruiz is gonna end this game right now, and he hit a walkoff.

bsaza2358 05-16-2007 10:15 AM

I need to remind myself to get on the streaming internet radio broadcasts when I'm home and the Phils are playing. I miss the announcing. Stupid Nats & O's...

I thank you all for the info. I am a big Phils fan and am going to see my first game on the 28th against the D-backs. I am going down with a couple of buddies and we want to know some of the best places to eat in the city and in the ball park. I will take note of the Schmidters and the BBQ. I can't wait. We were thinking about Chickies and Pete's and this one other place, but I can't remember it, but what would some of the others guys from Philly can tell me. By then Howard should be off of the DL and healthy. But the only thing I am worried about is when he comes back, the line-up will be changed, and it seems to be working very well now. The Phils have come up with some clutch hitting lately, and I am hoping that we will see some more of that on the 28th. It is my first game in Philly, or in any city for that matter, so I don't know what to expect. I do know it will be tons of fun though.

jonbrodo17 05-16-2007 08:29 PM

yea, the ballpark atmosphere is great.

Chickies and Petes is very good and sometimes players go there after the games (once saw Geoff Geary)

I only hope that howard comes back healthy

Philliez01 05-16-2007 08:50 PM

Yes, having Howard back (and hopefully healthy this time) will be a great thing for them. They are surging right now but I have to admit that Greg Dobbs looks to be an excellent situational player at the least.

The bullpen, with two inexperienced (three if you count Myers) players is looking to be pretty improved. I think that if Cole and Moyer can keep up their level of play, it will hopefully catch on to everyone else (i.e. keep it up Eaton).

I can't wait to see what happens this year again!

This bullpen will be nasty if we can get Gordon back healthy as our 8th inning releiver. As long as he is able to keep his level of play high enough, we could have one good bullpen. In the 6th/7th, we could have Geary/Alfonseca/etc, and in the eighth have Flash and Myers could come in and close. I am a fan of Geary, and think he helps out our whole bullpen.

bsaza2358 05-17-2007 02:38 PM

Phils going for the 4 game sweep and 1 game over .500 today. 1-1 in the second inning. Traded HR's. Looks like Burrell went deep to CF. That's like him hitting to RF...

eaglesalltheway 05-20-2007 09:09 AM

Any other places to eat that you guys would recommend? Any places to play some pool or any types of games?

Eaglez.Fan 05-20-2007 09:12 AM

Shawn Marcum is a beast again. At one point he had 10 innings of no hitter, in a row, dating back to his last 6 IP no hit start.
