Extra Innings: 04/25/07
Marz’s thoughts: Even with Ryan Howard struggling, the Phillies offense has heated up. Chase Utley, Pat Burrell and Aaron Rowand have stepped it up and carried the team. Starting pitcher Jamie Moyer is 44 and is throwing like he is 34. If the Phils bullpen straigtens itself out with the addition of Brett Myers, they could be revived in the coming weeks!
P.S. – I got NOTHING today…i am in a state of confusion now
Cuch’s thoughts: How often do you see two solid closers blow a save in the same game? That was the case in Anaheim as both Francisco Rodriguez and Todd Jones each let one go. Venezuelan Magglio Ordonez got into a fastball of Venezuelan K-Rod but he was redeemed when Reggie Willets crossed the plate with the winning run.
P.S. – Is it any surprise that Marzano has nothing today? Oh and the Mariners cancelled again? They are up to 6 games that they have to makeup!
