Lucky Josh wasn't pitching? Hell he's lucky DO was the one pitching! Any one else in the starting staff would have returned the favor, AJ included.

I agree 100%. Who the hell does Myers think he is? He's lucky Josh Beckett wasn't pitching because I guarantee someone would have gotten plunked.

i was hoping we would blow them out so we could afford to plunk someone, but winning the game is the most important thing, and the best payback.

 

actually i would've like to see Myers just knocked down on his azz, more then seeing one of the phillies hitters getting plunked.

 

this made me remember when Kevin Brown knocked Todd Sotddlemyer on the floor twice, after Stottlemyer had hit Sheff with a pitch. (back in 97)

The transformation of this team under McKeon has been wonderous.

 

Under Torborg it was alright to lose. Jeff always had an excuse for a player's mistakes, always had the good word to say when someone stunk up the joint.

 

McKeon has taught them how to win. What it felt like. What they had to do (individually and as a team) to being winners. How to act like winners.

 

We have alot to be thankful for but right up there at the top of the list is Jack McKeon.

 

Don't believe me? Just ask Steve.

Also, McKeon stands up for his boys, something neither Torborg nor Boles did previously.

 

Just a thought, after the brawl, the first batter for the Phils was Thome, if it weren't for every 'pen pitcher having been overextended the night before, I bet he gets plunked, even with the warning on...

Wouldn't of mattered if it was Beckett or DO on the mound. YOu aren't going to throw a retaliation pitch at the other team in the 2nd inning after warnings were issued.

 

Anyone else notice how productive the bottom of the lineup was today? Hmmm... I wonder why that is?

Well, it wasn't because A-Gon was on the bench because Mordi wasn't great at the plate. Conine, Cabrera, Lowell and Choi are all hitting and they can't all bat in the 3 and 4 spots.

Jack...gotta love him:

 

Marlins manager Jack McKeon said he was sure Myers, who hit Miguel Cabrera with a pitch in the first inning, was throwing at Gonzalez.

 

''There was no doubt in my mind, after the home run was hit, that he threw over his head . . . in retaliation for the guy hitting the home run,'' McKeon said. ``Could be Mr. Myers was going to play Mr. Macho out there. But if you're going to play macho, you better back it up. He got his lunch.''

 

Got his lunch...damn, the old man is good!

at which point he would have gotten tossed from the game.

 

i don't think that's worth it in the 3rd inning...

 

although if Jack knew Oliver was going to pitch poorly maybe he would have encouraged him to bean someone. :lol

IMO, what happened in the last two games is that spring training is now over mentally as well as officially. Like multiple tummblers on a safe's lock as they start to drop into place...that final "click" that opens the door just happened.

 

Everyone who was MIA in the first few series is "on" like it was last September.

 

Cox & co are going to play a completely different team tonight.

 

Terrific post :thumbup

Amen! Here's hoping for a playoff atmosphere at the Pro this weekend!
