The Phils Are Back, and they’re no "Angels"

(Spoken)
They’re playin’ good, they’ve hung around
And hittin’ well, every night
And even when they aren’t good
They never treat the Met team nice

(Sung)
We play the Phils and we’re gonna’ be in trouble
(Oy Vayyy, Oy Vay the Phils are back )
We see them and hope they don’t burst Met fans’ bubbles
(Oy Vayyy, Oy Vay the Phils are back )
If they stay hot, they’ll turn our team hopes blue
(Oy Vayyy, Oy Vay the Phils are back )
If we lose the series, then our season could be screwed.

(Oy Vayyy, Oy Vay the Phils are back)
(Hey, you know the Mets been tryin’)
(But, you know that I ain’t lyin')

At first base, Jim Thome’s been a killer
We all recall when he was the Injun’s thriller
At second Utley hasn’t been there long
The guy he replaced was traded for a song
And Rollins makes us wish we weren’t born
But Bell at third’s been looking so forlorn
(Oy Vayyy, Oy Vay the Phils are back )

(Hey they ain’t winnin’ ‘cause they’re cheatin'!)
(We hope we can avoid a beatin'!)

And Pat Burrell has made all Met fans cry
(Boo-hoo, Boo-hoo)
If you throw him smoke he’ll cut you down to size
And we’ve seen enough of Bob Abreu
He can hit, and Kenny Lofton, too.
(Oy Vay, wait and see)


Their starters have a Met killer reputation
(Oy Vayyy, Oy Vay the Phils are back )
They make our hitters look like they’re on a long vacation
(Oy Vayyy, Oy Vay, the Phils are back )
Starters Padilla, Lidle, Myers and Lieber, too
In the pen are Wagner and Ugie, (new)


Yeah, the Phils are back
(Oy Vey!, the Phils are back )
Look out now, yeah, the Phils are back
(Oy Vey!, the Phils are back )
You can see them comin'
(Oy Vey!, the Phils are back )
So we’d better get a runnin'
(Oy Vey!, the Phils are back )
Alright now
(Oy Vey!, the Phils are back )
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Oy Vey!, the Phils are back)
The Phills are back now
(Oy Vey!, the Phils are back )

******************************************************************************
Have to post this tonight, because I will be out of the office most of Tuesday.

The only pitching matchup I've seen so far is:

NYM - KRIS BENSON (5-2, 3.67)
PHI - VICENTE PADILLA (3-6, 6.23)

I'd appreciate it if someone can update the matchups.

Thanks,
Later

PROBABLE PITCHERS

Kris Benson, RHP (5-2, 3.67) @ Brett Myers, RHP (5-3, 2.19)

Scouting Report:
Kris Benson will be on the hill for the Mets as they open a three-game series in Philadelphia. The Mets have won each of Benson's last three starts, with the right-hander allowing six runs on 14 hits in 20 innings pitched -- a 2.70 ERA.


Over his last five outings, Myers has an ERA of 2.78 and four quality starts (at least six innings, no more than three runs allowed). But he has a 1-1 record with three no-decisions to show for it. He gave up just one run in 6 1/3 innings in his last start in Seattle, but was long gone by the time the Phillies won, 3-2, in the 13th.

Victor Zambrano, RHP (3-6, 4.06) @ Vicente Padilla, RHP (3-6, 6.23)

Scouting Report:
Victor Zambrano gets the starting assignment in the middle game of a three-game series in Philadelphia. The right-hander won his only start this season against the Phillies, working six innings and allowing two earned runs on eight hits in a 16-4 Mets win on April 19 at Citizens Bank Park.

The 27-year-old Padilla has given up six homers in just under 16 innings over his last three starts, yet managed to lower his ERA nearly a full point in that stretch. Padilla, who is coming off a Wednesday loss in Seattle, has yet to pitch into the seventh inning in his 10 starts this year.


Kazuhisa Ishii, LHP (1-6, 5.40) @ Robinson Tejeda, RHP (1-0, 2.18)

Scouting Report:
Ishii takes the mound in the finale of the Mets' three-game series against division rival Philadelphia. Ishii allowed five runs, three earned, over 5 2/3 innings in his last outing in Seattle. ...HE SUCKS..

No report Tejeda

Irish, you are an excellent judge of talent.
And a diplomat, too.

Don't hold back.
Tell us how you really feel.

I hope you're right but things could get ugly quick if they don't.
