1 Down, 161 To Go

Ah baseball is back and how I have missed it! What a great way to start the year for the Phillies with a comeback win in the 9th inning off of six singles by Rollins, Howard, Fransico, Ruiz, Valdez and John Mayberry Jr. The perfect season is still intact! It was good to see the clutch hitting return for the Phillies after a disappointing playoff finish last year where it seemed as if the team couldn't buy a hit against the Giants in important situations. If the bats come through this season, the rotation of Halladay, Hamels, Lee, and Oswalt should be nearly unbeatable and the Phills should bring home their second World Series title in the last four seasons!
