Phillies - Nationals Recap Quickie Game 1

First the bad news. Cliff Lee is probably done for the season after re injuring his left elbow in the third inning of the Phillies 10-4 win over the Nationals. Those in the know say it's the same injury that kept him from pitching for two months. Now the good news. After the non waiver trade deadline past and no one was traded the Phillies pounded the Nationals to the tune of 10 runs and 17 hits. the Phillies put up five runs in the top of the fourth for a 5-0 lead, but the Nationals scored one in the bottom half, and two more in the  fifth to cut it to 5-3. The Phillies responded with two more in the top of the sixth to go up 7-3. The Nationals added one more run in the seventh to cut it to 7-4, and the Phillies put it away with three runs in the eighth to end the scoring. The Phillies improve to 48-61, and the Nationals drop to 58-48.

Player of the Game:

Ben Revere, CF Phillies: 4/6, 2 R, 1 RBI, 1 SB

Man Crates

I’m not sure if you knew but August 14th is Palentine’s Day. Exactly 6 months after Valentine’s Day, Palentine’s Day is a celebration of male friendship and everything that goes along with it. This holiday is being spearheaded by Man Crates maker of manly crates, which contain fantastic gifts for men.
With the quickening pace of modern society and the competing demands of family and work, men everywhere are organizing fewer poker nights, skipping midweek happy hours, and failing to watch important sporting events with their friends and neighbors.
Aren't the sacred bonds of friendships just as important as romantic love? Don't men deserve one day a year that we can shirk all responsibilities and sneak away with our pals to go fishing, eat our collective weight in pizza while pwning n00bs on xbox live, or test the ballpark's limits of 'disorderly conduct' at a double-header?
