I'm Just Saying......

A weekly collection of random thoughts and observations for you to consider.

  • How good is your team when Cole Hamels is currently your 4th best starting pitcher?
  • Odds are that Brett Favre was that kid riding his bike with no hands saying "Hey, look at me!"
  • Considering the current medical state of the Eagles offensive line, a better use for the recently committed $7 million in payroll might be to add John Runyan.
  • Jayson Werth and Ryan Howard are officially "En Fuego" after each recording multiple hits and banging long home runs to centerfield last night. (See "Things We're Tracking" on the left for others.)
  • The Phillies offense is starting to look like it deserves a moniker similar to "The Lumber Company" or "Big Red Machine" nicknames from the 70's.
  • Was it just me, or did Eldra Buckley look a little like Marion Barber running that screen play?
  • Last night's Donovan McNabb to DeSean Jackson 39 yard touchdown pass was perfectly executed and could be a preview of the success they will have when the games count.
  • Its a little early to predict doom and gloom for the Birds' upcoming season based on their first two pre-season games.
  • Joe Blanton showed mental toughness by not unraveling after a misplayed pop fly double and a hurdling, jagged bat barrel helped the Diamondbacks plate two runs in the 4th.
  • Brad Lidge is throwing harder this year, didn't exactly paint the corners last year, and the last season he struggled so mightily he later discovered that he was tipping his pitches. I'm just would be worth a closer look by Rich Dubee.
