Thoughts from the Weekend


Can anyone remember the last series the Phils took from a team? Me neither. Only the Mets have a .500 record in their last 10 games in the NL East, so the Phils have been very fortunate that no other team has been able to take the bull by the horns in their division. The Phils now must stop screwing around, as they enter a portion of their schedule heavy with divisional opponents, starting tomorrow in Atlanta for 3 games and back home against the Mets for 4 games.

If the Phils continue to flounder through this next week, I would be shocked if a trade, even a minor one involving lesser known players, weren't made if for no other reason than to shake things up a bit.


The Flyers signed Steve Eminger, obtained in a trade on draft day, to a 1 year deal. The leash for Eminger appears to be a short one. At least we won't have to wait long to see if Holmgren pissed away a first round pick or not.


Spent the weekend with friends in Washington DC; had fun, but it gets oppressively hot there. I have no idea how people can stand going outside there at times, let along decide to take a jog around the mall.

Tried to go to the O's-Nats game on Saturday night, but it was inexplicably sold out.

Also - apparently - despite careers, age, marriage, children, and mortgages, beer pong was still alot of fun.
