Open Game Thread 6/5: Phillies at Pirates

Roy Halladay (7-3, 2.56 ERA)

PHILLIES: I can’t believe I’m going to type this next sentence. Roy Halladay ┬átakes the mound today in hopes of preventing a sweep of the Phillies by the Pirates. It seems like the Phillies have trouble every time they go to PNC Park and I guess this year is no different. Whatever, the team is still 10 games over .500 heading into this game.

James McDonald (3-3, 4.85 ERA)

PIRATES: This series has been defined by the Phillies offense making mediocre pitching look like All-Stars and Cy Young candidates, and that’s just hard to watch.

    will we hit today???

  2. Danys "White Flag" Baez says:

    These Pirates pitchers are better than mediocre.

  3. The Phillies always lose to Pirates, Astos, and Red Sox. It is what it is. Why fight it?

  4. FanSince10 says:

    12-32 lifetime record at PNC Park.

    Why God? Why?

  5. blackinmind says:

    Pirates are 28-29. They have not been at .500 this late in a season since June 11, 2005. Phillies standing in the way of history. History!

  6. blackinmind says:

    which are the teams the phillies can’t beat again?

  7. Watrick says:

    Blackingmind steals from twitter.

  8. blackinmind says:

    forgot to write the dude’s name. every freaking teams is bunting now.

  9. PhilLee fan says:

    Annoying lady with blanket not there today. At least that’s something good about this pathetic weekend of baseball.

  10. Watrick says:

    1-2 count with 2 outs. How does Halladay miss his spot that much to give up that homer?

  11. PhilLee fan says:

    Phillies pitcher, who are you and what have you done with our Roy Halladay???

  12. blackinmind says:

    umpires vs. phillies today.

  13. blackinmind says:

    Placido Polanco has to drag Halladay away from Angel Hernandez. Wow.
    from matt G. twitter.

  14. PhilLee fan says:

    Maybe it’s just a simple shift cylanoid??

  15. Grounder to Short says:

    I thought that the Phils would be able to win considering that dumb slut holding the Pirates towel isn’t at the game, but Neil Walker’s not helping me out here

  16. PhilLee fan says:

    Yup, another sucky ump at home.

  17. PhilLee fan says:

    Roy should just clock that ump w a wild pitch.

  18. PhilLee fan says:

    Pirates dude selling the peanuts is “WB Mason” scary.

  19. PhilLee fan says:

    WOW!! Wilson Valdez…I love you!

  20. Grounder to Short says:


  21. FanAwayFromHome says:

    anyone know a good live feed for todays game?

  22. PhilLee fan says:

    You just can’t keep leaving runners stranded. A good bank gets this.

  23. Philly fan stuck in DC says:

    Dear Phillies,

    I know it’s June. I know you play like crap every June. However, please cut this shit out and win a game.

  24. Toneloc says:

  25. PhilLee fan says:

  26. PhilLee fan says:


  27. PhilLee fan says:

  28. PhilLee fan says:

    They finally start hitting and the ball nails the ump. Seriously???!?

  29. Toneloc says:

    ^^^ agreed

  30. Grounder to Short says:

    FUCK YOU UMPIRE!!!!!!!!!!

  31. Valdez's Double Play says:


  32. precious one says:

    That was pure bs.

  33. CTM says:

    Fuck this series, seriously. That was such horseshit.

  34. Philly fan stuck in DC says:

    Congrats to Raul on #1000.

    Fuck you to the Umps. If that run comes back to be a factor, fuck.

  35. PhilLee fan says:

    McDonald blows. Not sure how they’re gonna hit anything off this guy. He’s too wild.

  36. CTM says:

    Hey, if this guy wants us to tie the game by our batters just standing there, fine by me.

  37. stinkbug says:

    does anyone know if this pitcher is all over the place? mccarthy won’t say.

  38. PhilLee fan says:

    Buh-bye, McDonald.

    Ok, not to be negative but if the Phils can’t take advantage of this bases loaded with no outs situation, they deserve to lose the series.

  39. Danys "White Flag" Baez says:


  40. PhilLee fan says:

    Good one, Danys

  41. Valdez's Double Play says:

    Excellent at-bat.

  42. CTM says:

    That’s pretty amazing that they were able to get the lead without a single hit that inning.

  43. meh says:

    worst weekend of Phillies baseball since last year’s Cubs series. Said.

  44. PhilLee fan says:

    ^^^ WORD

  45. DanB says:

    Breakfast huh? Sarge is pissed he didn’t get the invite.

  46. meh says:

  48. The Original J. Dubs says:

  50. Valdez's Double Play says:


  51. PhilLee fan says:

  52. PhilLee fan says:

    It’s not fun until the Phils get offense and T-Mac gets smacked around by a pierogi!

  53. DanB says:

    Fuck that pierogi

  54. PhilLee fan says:

    Thanks for the ass shots, old man.

  55. PhilLee fan says:

    And Howard strikes out to end the inning. Shocker…

  56. Noodles Hahn says:

    Finally, some recognition!

  57. Danys "White Flag" Baez says:

    Dommy has the worst luck

  58. Shamels Raul (formerly Wertiz) says:

    Wheels does not want to talkk about that shirt. So pissed.

  59. PhilLee fan says:

    The better question is, are YOU Wheels in the game?

  60. PhilLee fan says:


  61. PhilLee fan says:

    Fuck yeah, Chase.

  62. DanB says:

    Chase Utley, everybody.

  63. PhilLee fan says:

    Yay, Ryan can hit!!

  64. PhilLee fan says:

    Everybody hits!

  65. PhilLee fan says:

    …except Chooch

  66. spermar says:

    Shut up Wheels!

  67. FanSince10 says:

    Contreras fucking sucks. We need to kick his fat ass to the curb ASAP

  68. CTM says:

    Man, where was this team the first two games?

  69. precious one says:

    @CTM, I was thingking the same thing.

  70. precious one says:


  71. GenericAssholeFanRemix says:

    And Howard hits a 2-out RBI. Shocker.

  72. meh says:

    By now, we really oughtta be used to this team’s hitting just going missing at times. It always comes back, it’s just a question of when and for how long.

  73. meh says:

    hell, it may not even be back yet. The runs today were scored on singles any such. Hell, one run scored on a HBP.

  74. Wendell Magee Jr. says:

    Sex blast.

  75. Toneloc says:

    trumpet guy needs to die

  76. Arthur Ashe says:

    Heh, there’s a guy behind home with plaid shorts, backwards hat, jersey, and I presume sandals. I wonder how Lance is taking that.

  77. Old Pee Stained Urinal at the Vet says:


  78. CTM says:

    HAH! Post game showed a graphic on Halladay’s cutter % with the title of “So Cuttered”. Looks like someone over there’s a ZWR fan.

  79. Obi Wan Kenobi says:

    Lance, you were once my brother! I loved you!

  80. J. Walter Weatherman says:

    And that’s why you always get base hits with runners in scoring position.

  81. Old Pee Stained Urinal at the Vet says:


  82. Danyiel says:

    I think I saw Charlie Morton jacking off in the dugout watching Halladay pitch today.

  83. Obi Wan Kenobi says:

    don’t try it Lance, old pee stain will have the high ground.

  84. Old Pee Stained Urinal at the Vet says:

    I will have the high ground. And Obi Wan knows it

  85. Kung Fu Fightins says:

    lance, ya done

  86. boom says:

    somebody please get pictures of tomorrows shit beating of lance (i’m thinking the real lance is a mid 40s sex offender with a coke addiction)

  87. Old man says:

    @81 there isn’t a section 394 at CBP.

  88. Colleen Wolfe's Newly Bleached Asshole says:

    Ahh, I feel so nice and clean! Goodbye brown coloring and tiny hairs!

  89. Brian says:

    @# 68 it was his first run given up all season. cut him a break

  90. Mike P says:

    Anyone have video of Doc going after the ump?

  91. Waka flaka says:

    Lance, you’re a fucking loser. Get out of your moms basement. I bet you look like the comic book guy from the Simpsons and dine regularly at Taco Bell. Clean it up.

  92. TC says:

    I can’t believe I still check this site.

  93. meh says:

    @ TC…I know, it’s only game threads anyhow…

  94. Philly fan stuck in DC says:

    Dear Phillies,

    Thanks for throwing us a bone.
