For the first time in nearly two years, a playoff series in this town. This week we learn to hate New York again.
Let’s hit it!

From the weekend:
Dan Bylsma, who is on the current version of Say Yes to the Dress, is a douche. H/T to reader Ryan
DeSean Jaccson in a Dolphins hat in Miami (though fashion editor Dan Fuller has pointed out that it’s a Pink+Dolphin hat that is going for $120 on eBay… though I think Dan is overestimating the decision making process of DeSean).
Jimmy Rollins to fan: “Shut the fuck up.”
In 46 plate appearances this season, Utley is hitting a ridiculous .500 with a 1.440 OPS. He has hit safely in all 10 games he’s played. He has a 15-game hitting streak stretching back to last season, the third longest streak of his career.
Utley launched an eighth-inning, game-winning solo home run Sunday in the Phillies’ 4-3 victory over the Marlins. The second baseman went 3 for 4 with that RBI and scored another run as the Phillies completed a home sweep of Miami.
I have fantasies that start like this… they end with Chase Utley holding me on a windswept balcony. Let’s just forget about the middle.
