Mets skipper should be the first to get axe!

The New York Mets manager, Willie Randolph, is nearing his spot on the chopping block. The NY Mets have stumbled, bumbled, and tumbled into a distant 4th place in the NL East 6.5 games out, and this should signal the beginning of the end of Willie's tenure as the Mets manager.

Forget about the historic collapse last year that should have gotten him fired right after the last game of the season, but this is absolutely insane that Mets management would let this continue. I don't see what they are waiting for, a miracle out of the sky to make things better?

The Mets brass went out and spent money to bring together a group that should be walking away with the NL East, but so far it looks as if they may be caught right near the cellar the way they have been playing lately.

I just can't figure out how or why Mets fans wouldn't be demanding Randolph's job, he's the one that the negativity gets pinned to.

Phils crush Rockies, save some for later!

20 Runs in one game, that's incredible! It is a testament to how powerful this offense can be at times in the biggest Phillies win in some time and their first of the ten game home stand. I get a little nervous when I see scores like this though because it completely makes the other team feel like they would like to go out on the field and try to get even with a team that 'ran' up the score on you the night before.

Sometimes a team gets a comfortable lead and lays back and then the other team catches them off guard, so I guess it's a double edged sword and sometimes with the Phillies, they need a 10 run cushion to make me happy!

Here's the offense that was poured out on Monday night:

19 hits - 20 runs

Chase Utley - 1 HR and 6 rbi's

Ryan Howard - 3 rbi's

Feliz and Coste - 4 rbi's each

Gametime temp 80

Attendence: 44,764

Phils back home for holiday and for 10 games

10 Games at Home for the Phils!

The Fightin's are back home for a 10 game homestand at the unofficial start of summer. They went 4-3 on the road trip that they just returned from. A couple tough losses to the new and improved Houston Astros down there in Houston.

I can't wait for the next weekend series of games against the Florida Marlins, I want to see if the Marlins are the real deal as they have been winning a lot of games lately, and they still lead the National League East where practically no one picked them to. That's what I love about baseball, you don't know what's going to happen until the games are played on the field.

The Phillies homestand starting today will be tied with one in July that will be there longest stretches of home games this season. Another 10 game homestand will lead the team right into the All Star break from July 4 - 13 - a nice way to lead into the All Star break for the team. This homestand starting of Memorial Day, the Phillies play the Rockies for three, the Marlins for 3 games and the Cinncinnati Reds for 4 games. On the homestand in July for the 10 games the Phils will face the New York Mets for 4 games, the St. Louis Cards for 3 games, and the Arizona Diamondbacks to finish out the homestand for 3 games.

Ryan Howard appears to be gaining on his recent slump, his average is above the .200 mark and he's putting up 4 homeruns on the board in the past 8 games. It was good to see some power from him, as he already has 75 strikeouts on the season and we aren't even in June yet.

My apologies for not posting here much in the last month, I got married and went on a fabulous honeymoon trip to Paris and now I am quite settled back into the baseball scene and getting back into baseball and the Phillies.
