Who do you fear more/Potential rotations

Friday, October 17, 2008, 1:52 PM
I spent a good deal of this morning walking around the Phillies clubhouse asking various players about potential match-ups against the Rays and the Red Sox. All of them watched last night's game, when Boston overcame a seven-run seventh-inning deficit, and all were as amazed as you no doubt were... Read more

It's a boy

Wednesday, October 15, 2008, 7:25 PM
Line-ups for tonight are below. It's another picture-perfect day at Dodger Stadium. I wonder if it is ever cloudy in this area of the state.
