I think Ryan Zimmerman is one of the missing quiz answers.  Surprised you all missed that one. 

Lots of good NL story lines.  Sorry to see Nats lose yesterday.  That was pivotal.  But still plenty alive.

Here, let me help.

I saw Zimmerman, after I had already posted my choices.

Help?

Yes.

You clearly wanted your words reposted.

I reposted them, again.

Nola is brilliant. He throws any pitch in any count in any situation. Remarkable.

That said, the Phillies aren't ready yet. They play terrible defense, run the bases poorly and have a crummy bullpen. Tonight Kapler has to stay with a clearly gassed Nola.

I still think they'll find a way into the post-season. I'm a fool.

He's the Cy Young.

The bullpen is better than you think, but the defense has been bad all year. Young team.

As you said, Mr. Utley, Roman Quinn can fly.

Fly, Roman, fly!

Not many hit the ball to left center in that park and get a triple.

Mr. Utley informed me couple of weeks back that the Phillies bullpen is "better than you think."  I admit he might be right because I think the Phillies bullpen is among the worst I've ever seen.  They couldn't possibly be that terrible and thus they're likely "better "than I think. Nobody there throws a first-pitch strike.  Just dreadful.

Kapler Gene Mauched his pen.

Plus, the hitting coach will be fired (Steinbrenner solution #3), which is where the issues have been for the last month and a half.

Encouraging season for the Utes. Now, with a $69million payroll, entering next season, sign Machado and Harper, and trade for another starter.

The Dodgers need to get the runners in when they get runners on base, especially with no outs, they need to bunt, and do sacrifice flies, etc, to get the runners in. Buehler did a great job pitching tonight, but the Dodgers need to get runs, they cannot afford to leave runners on base, they need to get those runners in. Every swing does not need to be a home run, sometimes a bunt is all you need.

And the same with Ryu, and Kershaw, they pitch great, but the Dodgers need the batters to get runs in. They cannot be champions of the world if they keep leaving runners on base, they need to get those runners in.

Salute,

Tony V.
