"It's been a crazy year. It seems like anything that can go wrong has."
(Ryan Zimmerman, via Washington Times, 8/1/2008)
Phillies 8, NAAAts 4: Nine losses in a row, but who's counting? Manny, is this rock bottom?
Payback's a bitch: Zim hit in hand by Kendrick in the third to exact a little revenge for Lannan breaking Utley's hand last summer. Silver lining, his hand isn't broken, but the Nats are saying it's day-to-day, so, expect another trip to the DL for Zim sometime in the next two weeks. Good for Jesus Colome for retaliating by drilling Chase Utley in the ribs in the 8th.
