Phans, your Phillies had some good luck yesterday. Sure, the game was rained out, but the Phillies still won FOUR important match ups yesterday. Tie breaker coin flips were announced and the Phillies won all four of their coin flips that decide the home team for tie breaker scenarios.
An NL East tie breaker would have the Phillies hosting the Mets in one game to decide the division winner. A wild card tie with St. Louis, Milwaukee or Houston would all be held in Philadelphia also.
Any other potential ties will be decided with flips on an as-needed basis.
Flipping topics on ya...I've always meant to devote some blog space to a matter that concerns a lot of baseball purists. The annual Hall of Fame Game in Cooperstown, NY has been discontinued. I've been to the Hall of Fame game, and it's a great weekend for fans. In addition, local businesses have depended on the Hall of Fame Game weekend's spike in business to succeed. Please check out the link that follows and follow up with the powers that be in order to save this baseball institution.
Brett Myers will make his next start on short rest, like Jamie "The Beast" Moyer did earlier this week. Myers is slated to start the night cap on Sunday's double header, against the Brewers' Jeff Suppan. In 10 starts since the all star break, Brett is 6-2 with a 1.90 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP ratio. Suppan has a 7.31 ERA in 3 career starts at CBP.
Until next time, go Fightin's!
