The Monday night game against the Padres has been postponed due to Mother Nature. With everything that has happened to the Phillies in the first 2 weeks of the season, it makes you wonder, what is it all about? The World Series celebration continuing, getting the rings, the passing of our friend Harry Kalas, and so far, two games rained out; is this an omen of sorts? Could it be one huge set-up for a repeat victory? Or maybe just a sign that this is going to be a very long, sad season? Time will tell…
Hoping to see life return to normal for the Phillies, there is a new series set to begin tomorrow night against the Brewers. The pitching will all get bumped back a day so Jamie Moyer will start tomorrow at 7:05pm, barring any more weather related incidents. If you are going to the game, like I am, be forewarned; the Flyers will be playing across the street at the Wachovia center and parking will be a nightmare! Get there early!
Speaking of Mr. Moyer, The Philadelphia Daily News reported today that Jamie will be dubbed Dr. Moyer on April 30th. Saint Joseph’s University is giving him and his wife, Karen both honorary doctorates; specifically, they will each receive a degree as a Doctor of Public Service for their charitable work with the Jamie Moyer Foundation. Jamie graduated from St. Joe’s in 1985 and is a 1999 inductee in their athletic Hall of Fame. Now when he has a bad game he can just tell Charlie Manuel, “Damn it Chuck, I am a doctor, not a pitcher!”
Now, just think how much more fun that quote would have been if Jim Fregosi was still our manager? Oh well, we do love our Charlie :O)
