The Phillies showed a national television audience what kind of team they are today, defeating Randy Wolf and the Dodgers 7-2 and settling for a series split in Los Angeles. Though the season series between these two has wrapped up before the All-Star break, the past four days leave a lot of baseball fans thinking October Preview.

Phillies 7, Dodgers 2


I’ll say this, and leave you to peruse the fine print: Lidge probably shouldn’t have had that many save situations to pitch, whether he blew the save or not. Today’s solid offense makes my point: few men left on base when (excluding Werth and Utley 0-fers) the team is getting hits and solid starting pitching equals 4+ run leads equals give Lidgey a goddamned day off, fellas.

And I’d like to point out that Feliz and Ruiz are holding it down thus far this season, with batting averages of .306 and .309, respectively. A clutch-hitting bottom-of-the-order can keep the rest of the team fresh throughout a season and deep into the fall.

Feliz, you kick ass. Chooch, you’re the man.  And for your jonron and 3 RBIs, I saw to it that you got your just desserts. Enjoy.
