Call me bitter if you want but seriously why did it have to be Aroid who ends up hurting the Phillies the most. It has been feast or famine for him since he came back, as he is hitting just .204 on the season but has 7 home runs already. If it had been anyone else that hit that home run I wouldn’t have been nearly as angry. But you can’t let Lidge off the hook for this one, it is getting hard to watch him pitch. Why would you throw 5 sliders in a row, that Gayrod didn’t look all that good swinging at, just to throw him a high fastball that he can hit out? Stupid.
On the bright sideHapp was brilliant for 6 innings, Raul continued his journey of kickassness, and Mayberry made a great major league debut. Happ went 6 innings giving up only 2 runs (one shouldn’t be earned because of that bullshit double that Werth allowed) and he struck out 4. You have to think he will be in the rotation for a while. Raul homered in the second in the second inning, that is his major league leading 17th homer of the year. Beast. And lastly Mayberry was responsible for the majority of the Phils runs, hitting a 3 run homer in the 5th inning for his first major league hit, the first Phillie to accomplish that since Chase Fucking Utley.
There is not much to say other than you are a complete douche, douche…
