Gameday Preview: Game 30 Phillies vs Mets

The Philadelphia Phillies return home tonight to begin a lengthy home stand, the New York Mets start off of that home stand tonight at 7:05 Pm EST.

Yesterdays game went very lovely if you were a Phillies fans, Cole Hamels pitched a tremendous ball game and the Phillies bats woke up from hibernation and supported Cole’s great pitching performance.

Now I have always had respect for Cole Hamels but after yesterdays game and his comments after the game I have total respect for him now. In the first inning young phenom Bryce Harper stepped up to the plate and the first pitch Hamels threw to him was a fastball that hit his back. At the time of the event I really just thought Hamels lost control of his fastball, but his post game comments said otherwise,¬†“I was trying to hit him. I’m not going to deny it.” I have mad respect for Mr. I’m going to break the bank with the contract I’m going to be offered in the offseason. I love people who just come out and speak the truth, that don’t sugarcoat everything. I really hope the Phillies can muster up some money to sign Hamels to an extension.

He will probably get fined for this which is chicken shit but I just hope he doesn’t get suspended.

“never seen a more classless, gutless chicken [bleep] act in my 30 years in baseball.” This is what Nationals General Manager¬†Mike Rizzo had to say about Cole Hamels hitting Bryce Harper. The Nationals visit Citizens Bank Park in two weeks, to bad we can’t hit the general manager with a ball right between his eyes.

Roy Halladay will take the hill for the Phillies this evening at Citizens Bank Park, he will look to make up or redeem himself from his last start where he gave up eight runs to the Atlanta Braves. I will always love Halladay no matter what so I wasn’t really mad after last weeks game. Every pitcher no matter who you are is going to have a bad game every once in a while and that was the case last weekend with Roy Halladay. It just seemed like through the first four innings of that baseball game Halladay had his stuff and was going to cruise to the victory, but in the fifth and sixth inning the Braves figured out something and began to pound Halladay. Just goes to show you that baseball is one weird sport and don’t even try to predict it or it will bite you in the tush.

The Phillies bats will face New York Mets lefty Jon Niese tonight, Niese is 2-1 on the season and has an ERA of 4.08 so far. The Philllies faced Niese earlier this season at Citizens Bank Park and were shutout, Phillies were only able to chalk up five hits in that game.

This game is on ESPN again tonight and my question is what will ESPN cameras show since there mancrush Bryce Harper isn’t playing? Will they actually have to show the game that’s being played for once? Its Armageddon.

A cloudy 64 degrees at game time tonight. 20 percent chance of rain.

Go Phillies!
