We've got a 2-0 series lead, and little bit of "Cooch"


We're having the opposite experience of what we lived through in the post season of 2007. My collection of rally towels will soon exceed the amount of strike outs that Ryan Howard gets in a season. TBS gave Carlos Ruiz a new nickname (formerly Chooch). I gave that Brewers guy one of my own..."Chokey Choke" Sabathia had gone 31 straight starts without giving up as many as 5 earned runs (he allowed 5 ER in 3 2/3 innings pitched in game 2). Shane Victorino hit the very first post season grand slam in Phillies history. The ESPNews ticker stat of the night that I couldn't ignore was....Utley & Howard combined- 0-for-7 with 6 strikeouts, in game 2.

Game 3 of the NLDS in Milwaukee will feature Jamie Moyer vs. Dave Bush.

Bush was 9-10 this season with a 4.18 ERA in 31 games. In 6 career starts vs. the Phillies, Bush has no decisions and a 5.88 ERA. Combined against Dave Bush, Pat Burrell, Ryan Howard and Chase Utley are 14-for-36 in their careers (.388 avg), with 6 homers, and 10 RBI. Those same three batters also have a combined career on-base percentage of .463 against Bush.

Meanwhile, Jamie Moyer's career stats against Milwaukee look like this...22 games, 9-5 record, 3.63 ERA. In addition to that, Moyer's road ERA this season is 2.92, with a 10-3 record in away games. Jamie, The Beast, has only 1 loss since the all star break, in 14 starts.

I guess sending you the "Cooch" pic was bad luck. After all, we did lose to Bush the following game. :)
