World Series 2009 Game 3 Thread

So, IF it even gets to a seventh game, who would you give the ball to?

I guess it's got to be Happ.

At this point, the Phillies have 2 options: start Happ in Game 7 or start Lee in Games 4 and 7.

just got home. i read that ricky bo thought the crowd was horrible. i thought it was the loudest i have ever heard the first 4 innings but when your #$!&@ pitchers cant get out of an inning without giving up a run for 5 straight innings what the hell are you supposed to cheer for?

also how the hell did yankee fans get two sections of tickets in lf, every seat behind the yanks dugout, and one section behind home? it was unreal.

also how the f does andy pettite get away with having 24 mound confrences, 17 throw overs, and 72 step offs of the rubber in one inning? he should be punished for that #$!&@.

When you mention "behind home," could you be referring to the Yankees family section? Because I was in the Diamond Club and, while there may have been some scattered Yankees fans down there behind home (and many suspiciously cheerful Secret Service guys), there wasn't really a concentrated amount of them in any one section.

Just a reminder that game 4 is not backs against the wall. Game 5 might be, but game 4 is our chance to slap the Yankees back hard.

I'll post a more rousing version of this later. But put simply, we have to shout long and hard all day today. Remind the team they have something to fight for.

i am still a bit angry with how they played last night.

it is looking like my favorite non run scoring moment was when posada could not get the weight off his bat. what a dope.

Housh and I were really the only two drinking. td, swish and pacino had about a six pack between them. Considering I got three cases of beer, even Housh and my best efforts were unable to dent the supplies considerably. My dad's really happy with all the beer he now has to drink.

That game really sucked. Went from awesome to super #$!&@ in a blink of an eye.

I thought the crowd was generally pretty loud-louder than NY. One of my concerns, and maybe this is reflected here, is that for the World Series-like the Super Bowl, although to a lesser degree- many of the tickets are going to be controlled by the league office so they can make sure advertisers and other business partners can be rewarded with postseason tickets. Since the league offices and many corporations are going to be in New York, many of these tickets will end up going to Yankees fans even at away games since Philly is not a very long commute. This may be an explanation for some of the blocks of Yankee fans.
Which part? And who are you?

Did you guys see Kruk get fired up about that camera? Apparently MLB ruled after the game that the camera shouldn't have been there and it won't be there tonight. Kruk can't believe the umps had issues with the camera before the game and STILL allowed it to stay there!
