Video: Phils Walk It Off… on Infield Single and Error

We'll take it. We'll take Marco Scutaro's inability to cleanly field and throw a groundball to his left. We'll take Todd Helton's fundamental mistakes. And we'll take… the Phillies' first ninth innning comeback of the season.*

*That dramatic pause was put in there as a way to honor the great and verbose Tom McCarthy

  1. Heckuva win.
    I like how Wheels pointed out that any kind of hit would win the game when the bases were loaded in the 9th. Brilliant insight, as always.
    Do the Phillies know how much we hate this duo?

  2. Charlie – I really don’t get it. Our message board game day threads on usually have at least 2 or 3, if not more, complaints about the clowns, especially t-mac.
    Some of us have even called mr Rob Brooks, who has the nerve to try to equate the situation to that of Harry Kalas – ‘no one liked him at first either’.
    I’m still hoping one day that they’ll have available the broadcast with sound and no announcers.

  3. The reason these guys do the things they do, and are the way they are, is because they think that they are part of the “show”…that we want to see THEM, as well as the Phillies. Does anyone EVER recall all the “booth shots” when Harry was there? Until this mindset changes, they will not.

  4. Please past this along to Wheels and the rest of the broadcast team. It is called ad nauseam not ad nimble or ad whatever the word is. Of course T-Mac was not going to help you figure out the word as he barely can construct a sentence over a 3rd grade reading level.
    Wheels, in the event you are reading this:
    Ad nauseam is a Latin term used to describe something unpleasurable which has continued “to [the point of] nausea”.[1][2] For example, the sentence, “This topic has been discussed ad nauseam”, signifies that the topic in question has been discussed extensively, and that those involved in the discussion have grown tired of it.

  5. Digital cameras are a very popular electronics item and have certainly hit the world by storm. The days of going to the local drug store to drop off and pick up film are over. The advanced technology of these cameras allow for storage of photos digitally and provide the choice of uploading them straight to a computer and for printing at home.

  6. Members of the forum community,
    Where is the discussion about the incident involving the umpire? If you did not have an opportunity to catch the ball game, I will provide a brief recap of the altercation.  It was late in the evening when Jeremy Guthrie, the Colorado Rockies relief pitcher, fired a high velocity fastball towards the plate. The catcher, inadvertently missed the ball and it was headed directly towards the umpire’s throat. Fortunately, for Mr. Fairchild, the home plate umpire, and the rest of us watching either in person or in my case via satellite, he was wearing a protective throat guard. Had he not, he would have been struck head on in the throat, killing him instantly.  A tragedy was averted.  Now, the main reason I bring this up is, I am attempting to meet with the NHL Board of Governors with the hopes of requiring that all players and officials wear a similar protective throat guard.  I have scheduled a meeting with some equipment experts next week to analyze technology that would safely protect a player from a high velocity slap shot. I demand that the NHL reassess their current equipment requirements. I will keep you posted on the progress of this safeguard.
    I shall be back later, closing arguments on the Sandusky trial…riveting!

  7. I love drunk larry anderson on the radio. Radio > TV and both are still better than the duo that does yankees games or any of the yinzers announcers.
