Defending Champs' 1st Win & The Century Mark

The 2009 Phillies recorded their first win today! Rejoice, everyone!

Our Phils recorded this win against the team they won their last game against, in the fifth and final game of the World Series, the Tampa Bay Rays. Pat Burrell made his return to Clearwater, for the first time as a visitor. Pat was 1-for-2, with a double. Pat's return helped set a Brighthouse Field attendance record at 10,270.

Burrell actually looks great in his new uniform. The letters on his hat and helmet no longer stand for Tampa Bay, by the way. It's now "The Bat".

Prior to the Phillies' scheduled game on Wednesday April 8th, the Phillies have planned their World Series championship ring presentation. The Phillies have invited Burrell and he will attend that ceremony. The Rays are in Boston that night to face the Red Sox, and the schedule works out to allow Pat to make a trip to Philadelphia in the afternoon.

John Mayberry Jr. continues to look like a quality acquisition, as he is 4-for-10 so far this spring with a homer. However, Greg Golson, the player our Phillies traded away for Mayberry Jr., is 5-for-9 with 2 doubles and 3 RBI with the Rangers in 4 games played.

The century mark has been achieved. This is PhoulBallz.com's 100th entry. The fun here has only just gotten started. We'll see you tomorrow for Sunday School.

I almost never create responses, but i did some searching
and wound up here "Defending Champs' 1st Win & The Century Mark".
And I do have a few questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be simply me or does it look as if like some of the responses look like left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
Would you make a list of all of your community sites like your twitter
