pat the bat rides in style

31 10 2008

if at the beginning of the season you would have had me guess the player that would be leading the world series parade on his own budweiser horse drawn carraige behind 8 clydesdales i would have told you to immediately fuck off because there is only one player on the planet who could be worthy of such a sentiment… and that player of course is none other than our main man and our muse patrick brian burrell the third (huge shout out to meech.one from the fightins for these awesome photos, damn i wish i lived in philly!)

this cart was supposed to be full of bud lights, but pat drank all of them last night

 i can’t imagine pat being more happy in his life, riding along the streets of philadelphia with his dog sitting right behind him and having his best friend and soulmate lying there with him as well (in case it wasn’t obvious i’m going with michelle as the former and elvis as the latter in that explanation btw).  if this is pat the bats last ride in philly (and it’s looking more and more like it may be…single tear) at least he went out the way we all wanted him to… if only the wind hadn’t drifted that ball so far to the right on monday, i think my world have have exploded more than it already has.  going to sign off here with another picture of the bat in his signature celebration pose

this looks familiar

heres hoping we get to see the bat with this pose again in a phillies uniform

tonights the night we’re gonna make it happen

29 10 2008
from the "love the bat's new world series edition mock neck, but miss the old russell hoody" collection

from the "love the bats new world series edition mock neck, but still miss his old russell sweatshirt" fanclub

this seems like a popular prediction right now, but i am going to jump on board and say that the bat is definitely going to make something happen in one of his two (possibly one if he gets pulled again) at bats this evening.  the other popular topic is that this could be pats last game as a phillie or (if the unmentionable happens) his last in philadelphia as a philly.  personally i am not ready to talk about that subject, things start to get pretty emotional around here.  i can say that i have held off on buying a burrell jersey for the past year just in case…
 
here’s the reason’s we are going to win tonight:
 
– our bullpen is the best in the league and has outperformed theirs all series long
– david price is not actually a baseball god despite what the media says
– we have the top of our order coming up and have 4 turns at bat left, they have their #6 coming up and only have 3 turns at bat
– the rays had to stay in delaware… half their team died of boredom
hey... i'm in delaware

hey... i'm in delaware

 – lidge is rested, madson is rested, kendrick is ready to go… j/k

– pat the bat is due

– and most importantly… i have a conference early in the morning tomorrow. clearly a sign from god that he wants me to show up to it still half drunk

finally some inspirational words from the legendary pointer sisters/jesse spano, i think they are pretty fitting for tonights game:

Tonight’s the night we’re gonna make it happen
Tonight we’ll put all other things aside
Give in this time and show me some
affection
We’re goin’ for those pleasures in the night

I want to love you, feel you
Wrap myself around you
I want to squeeze you, please you
I just can’t get enough
And if you move real slow I’ll let it go

I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it
I’m about to lose control and I think I like it
I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it
And I know, I know, I know, I know
I know I want you

We shouldn’t even think about tomorrow
Sweet memories will last a long, long time
We’ll have a good time, baby, don’t you worry
And if we’re still playin’ ’round boy that’s just fine

Let’s get excited, (woh) we just can’t hide it (no-no-no-o)
I’m about to lose control and I think I like it
I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it (no-no)
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know I want you, I want you

Oh boy, I want to love you, feel you
Wrap myself around you
I want to squeeze you, please you
I just can’t get enough
And if you move real slow I’ll let it go

I’m so excited, (ooh-wee) I just can’t hide it (oh)
I’m about to lose control and I think I like it (oh yeah)
I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it (no-no-no-no-no)
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know I want you, I want you
Let’s get excited [fade]

you don't need to be scared girl.. we ain't going back to cowbell hell

you don't need to be scared girl... we ain't going back to cowbell hell

and on the fifth day cole hamels delivered a world series

and on the fifth day cole hamels delivered a world series

9 out of 10 philadelphians pray to cole hamels over god

from the time when the rays qualified for the world series all people could talk about was the huge advantage that tampa had over philadelphia in the starting pitching department.  i didn’t buy it for a second, first of all hamels is by far and away the best pitcher in the series and i don’t think anyone would argue that.  myers and shields was pretty much a wash for me and that is pretty much how that matchup played out.  the rays seemed to have the advantage in the garza-moyer matchup, but everyone was totally writing jamie off because of a couple rough playoff outings even though the guy won 16 games this year and eats up teams like florida and tampa because of their young impatient hitters.  finally last nights matchup, the couple of times i had seen that sonnanstine character pitch i wasn’t very impressed and even though kentucky joes numbers were far from outstanding during the season, he still hadn’t been charged with a loss since joining the phils and was the opening day starter for the a’s this season.  needless to say i was less than surprised to watch the phils outpitch the rays all series

tonight is the night where cole hamels cements his status.  we have all heard the hamel’isms from this guy about how he wants to win cy youngs, throw no-no’s and win rings… so you know he is going to absolutely bring it tonight.

fearless forecast: hamels 7 2/3, 8 ks, 1er, 4 hits.  phils win 5-1

ps. when hamels locks this game up i am going to very disappointed if dave montgomery doesn’t come down to the clubhouse with a bag full of money and tells hamels to reach in and grab whatver he wants.  we need to sign this guy long term yesterday!
