Open Game Thread: 6/22 Phillies at Cardinals

CRIFF REE (7-5, 3.12 ERA)

PHILLIES: Well, that was a weird one last night. If you would have told me that around 9:30 that the Phillies would score ten runs in that game, I’d probably have punched you in the mouth for lying to me. But, you know, I’ll take it.

Kyle Lohse (7-3, 2.88 ERA)

CARDINALS: I hope the Phils hitters brought their pads after last night’s game. The five Cardinals relievers that pitched during the 8th inning plunked something like 83 consecutive batters. The Phils won the game, so I doubt there will be much lingering¬†animosity, but if anybody else gets plunked things could get testy.

(heh heh… testy.)

    there’s no excuse for phils not to beat up kyle lohse,
    1. he having a terrible june,
    2. howard & ibanez have good numbers against him
    3. cards are still reeling from yesterday implosion
    4. they still missed pujols
    5. lee is having a great june.

  2. Marcus Hayes says:

    Cliff Lee sucks.

    I hate white people.

  3. Ryan says:

    Removed a link that turned out to be Spyware. Don’t let that shit happen again.

    Thanks to everybody who pointed it out. I deleted your comments too, just so there weren’t eight comments going “WHAT THE FUCK DELETE THAT SHIT!” that nobody understood.

  4. Joe Pa says:


  5. WTT says:

    At any rate, the point remains that if Lee wants into the ASG, he needs a win tonight.

  6. soundofphilly says:

    What is up with commenter #3? what the fuk delete that shit.

  7. TheOtherJim says:

    Someone needs to punch Kyle Lohse in the mouth for those stupid glasses and that stupid haircut.

  8. soundofphilly says:

    Kyle Lohse, Kyle Scott same person

  9. I still don’t miss Kyle Lohse. My money is on the Phillies taking this tool for at least 6 tonight. Should be a nice, and easy win.

  10. Marcus "Beefy Tits" Hayes says:

    Tony Larussa did an excellent job managing the game last nite. The Phils should take notes on how a real manager does things. They could start by doing one better and batting the pitcher clean-up. Of course Lee is better suited for late inning work, so it might be best to give Herndon the ball tonite and let him do his thang. And they can always move Valdez from second to the mound. He has proved his effectiveness when the game is on the line.

  11. Howard's nose says:

    Howard’s due

  12. Ryan says:


  13. MarkM625 says:

    I’ll kick your ass if you don’t approve this!

  14. @MarkM625, hahah! That’s funny on so many levels. ;)

  15. FanSince09 says:

    If Cliff Lee doesn’t win tonight it is the fault of the fans for liking Holiday and Hammels more than him!

  16. toneloc says:

    no ibanez? i thought he had good numbers against lohse?!

  17. the Wheels on the short bus says:

    Tonight’s Nissan Keys to the Game: Score some goddamn runs.

  18. MarkM625 says:

    Plunk a Cardinal tonight or wait till tomorrow?

  19. @toneloc, he’s slumping as of late. He’s hitting .229 over his last 10 games, so I guess Charlie wants to give him a day off. I’d have started him against a rightie like Lohse, but I’m not Charlie.

  20. MarkM625 says:

    @17 He does. Charlie finally realized he’s struggling, but picked a weird night. That’s our Cholly!

  21. The Original J. Dubs says:

    Tom McCarthy loves the taste of opposing team cock.

  22. @the wheels on the short bus, hahah! Ain’t that the damn truth.

  23. Chris says:

    I’m gonna try activating threaded comments, meaning you can directly reply to someone. Let’s see if it’s any good.

  24. MarkM625 says:

    Thankfully you can’t reply to a reply of a reply of a reply.

  25. Chris says:

    I can make it so you can only respond once if you want.

  26. the Wheels on the short bus says:

    Doing the “Homo Depot Defensive Plays of the Game” in the 2nd inning is fucking retarded.

  27. Chris says:

    Done and done.

  28. Crocks says:

    did Cliff just scream “Yeah, bitch!” after that DP?

  29. Marcus Hayes says:

    All utley does is hit singles

  30. Jay Grace says:

    The Howard family looked like the Def Comedy Jam crowd

  31. DP says:

    Is Ryan Howard from St. Louis?

  32. the Wheels on the short bus says:

    Finally earned my Ryan Howard badge on Gameday. Now I can die a successful man.

  33. Jim Jims Caddy says:

    Im chugging on around those bases with sarge.

  34. Todd Pratt says:

    Howard’s chick looks awkward hanging with the Howard Family

  35. Godless Fur Trapper says:

    Pile it on, I want to see Tony Larussa’s head explode from the run damage.

  36. Todd Pratt says:

    Baez needs the work

  37. baked mcbride says:

    4 outs on 5 pitches…

  38. baked mcbride says:

    5 outs on 8 pitches…

  39. Godless Fur Trapper says:

    The win is great, but in the name of cosmic goodness, let’s see Larussa’s head fill with fire and his shorts fill with his own lava.

  40. derrick says:

    Anyone catch Pooholes sitting in the dugout with his arm around Molina?

  41. Ryan Howards Cock says:

    Wonder if cole, doc or lee will get left off the all star team

  42. Wendell Magee Jr. says:

    Lee went from 16th in NL in ERA to currently 9th.

    And I like to bang Kevin Jordan.

  43. DanB says:


  44. Steve Jeltz's Jerry Curl Juices says:

    Lol @ Holidays arm

  45. TheOtherJim says:

    I didn’t think WB Mason commercials could get any worse.

    I stand corrected.

  46. Steve Jeltz's Jerry Curl Juices says:

    I hope 97.5 finally takes that terrible mike miss commerical spot off that saying “when are the fans going to hold Cliff Lee accountable” for his poor pitching

    • Wendell Magee Jr. says:

      It was relatively appropriate when it was played the first time but I agree. It can be removed now.

  47. @shawnjames says:

    cliff lee threw a million pitches tonight

  48. Clifton Phifer Lee… yeah, he’s an Ace too.

  49. Godless Fur Trapper says:

    KA-POW!! Feel the hot spray of Tony Larussa’s head exploding.
    Awesome, possum.

  50. Probs to Ryan on the game thread, but the Phillies/Cards logos are backwards color-wise

  51. Danyiel says:

    Man, Cliff Lee is just ridiculous. Of course I mean that in a good way.

  52. @shawnjames says:

    cliff lee’s penis is humungous

  53. Philly fan stuck in DC says:

    I’m sounding like a broken record but I need to say it again – to all of you people who were freaking out about Cliff after he had a 4-5 record through the end of May:

    Cliff once again gave you all a big ‘ol Fuck You.

  54. chilly says:

    cliff-TOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN. ya know, he wears t-shirts and has hair

  55. philajaime says:

    Apolo Anton Ohno’s a pretty good pitcher, but against Cliff Lee, there can be no victory.

  56. Marcus Hayes' bedside notebook says:

    You see in the 9th inning when Cliff Lee almost got his fingers busted redirecting that ball over his head to Utley’s left side so he didn’t have to make a play to his right? Utley’s made only one play to his right all year. Luis Castillo, now there’s a five tool second baseman.

  57. Godless Fur Trapper says:

    There’s no “broken finger” in TEAMWORK.
