I mostly agree but was mad about a strike two on Utley late

Yeah the Marte v. Utley at-bat, the Fox Trax or whatever didn't indicate a single strike being thrown. Close pitches that weren't that bad, but still funny to see 5 pitches out of the zone on the replay after a K looking
you sure do seem to have a lot of time on your hands to be on this forum? Do you have a job? Are you a shut-in?

Probably not rattled, per se, but their overall vibe last night looked awful

before their fans started leaving


The Phillies are truly cool, calm and collected and the Yankees are trying to give the appearance of being the same, but I'm not buying it at all.

Not sure how often this happens in a game, but no left fielder for either team made a play the entire night...

Did any outfielder for the Phillies make a play?

I'm sure I didn't get a great impression from the tv, but Yankees Stadium looked like a set from a sci-fi B movie

Yeah, I'm not fond of the look either. Both that stadium, and Citi Field, have a morbidness about them.

based on an 'unaudited' scan of baseball reference, Vic played a few balls: a 3-4 singles, one a bloop job, plus 2 fly balls
Yes, but in a double utley you can put your utley on top they other guy's utley, and you're the winner. (Swish)
