@Rob_STC: Wow another first place team and no crowd. Sounds like you can hear tons of Phillies fans in San Diego.
@Phrontiersman: I really like Mat Latos. But I hope we knock him all over the field tonight.
@_C8Lin: Instead of getting called out on check swings, Ryan decides to not swing at all.
@JoeGrady78: My six-year-old nephew has a better approach at the plate in tee-ball than the entire Phillies lineup. So frustrating.
@SwiftonSports: Oswalt’s fastball gives me a hard-on. Is that wrong?
@DashTreyhorn: Double scoop for Chooch!
@M_OMalley: The Padres run kind of slow.
@the701Level: CHORCH TIEMS 2
@lizroscher: Oh my God, the Phillies have two men on base! Two men on base! Eeeeeeee!
@TheGoodPhight: Everybody BABIPs! Wa HOO!!!
@DingDong1003: Ryan Howard’s at bats are uglier than Lady Gaga.
@ToddZolecki: Since returning from the DL, Ryan Howard is 3-for-26 (.115) with 0 homers, 0 RBIs, 0 walks and 14 strikeouts. Three hits are singles.
@TheGoodPhight: I miss the big, lumpy Ryan Howard who played shitty defense and hit lots of home runs.
@HighCheese: You know those HR robberies on the highlights that really aren’t that legit? Will Venable’s is not one of them. He stole Werth’s lunch money.
@HereComesTreb1e: Call the cops!! Robbed.
@ToddZolecki: Carlos Ruiz caught two runners stealing in 2nd inning. First Phillie catcher to do that since Chris Coste @NYM on Sept. 15, 2007.
@LOWDandROWDY: Thank Jeebus Howard made that play or the Phillies twittverse would have demanded he be benched or traded or some other dumb shit.
@DealNCali: Seeing all the angry, bitchy tweets I can’t tell if we’re mad at the Eagles or Phillies.
@philsgke: Good thing Scott Barry isn’t umping, he would have tossed Roy Oswalt for tossing the bat after his ground out to second.
@kraeer: Latos’ 12-6 curve is suddenly not so “nasty” as I called it earlier. He’s hangin’ ‘em, and “when ya hang ‘em somebody’s gonna BANG ‘em” – Sarge
@SwiftOnSports: Roy Oswalt = Worth every prospect spent. EVERY!
@magelb: In five innings, Roy Oswalt has thrown 50 strikes and 12 balls.
@TheGoodPhight: Can we make Super Phillies Dream Team: 2007 offense, 2008 bullpen, 2010 rotation?
@magelb: Ryan Howard is 3 for 27 with 15 strikeouts since coming off the DL.
@loctastic: Well, at least he swung that time? Dang.
@kierankelly: Ryan Howard is awesome at hitting the slider. And by awesome at hitting, I mean couldn’t hit it if his life depended on it.
@CoreySeidman: Roy Oswalt is seriously dealin’ right now. Give this man two runs to work with.
@SwiftOnSports: Oswalt man-love grows tenfold. #Phillies
@FriarDanny: That’s what I call: tit… for… tat. Phillies and Padres still tied at 1 in the bottom of the 7th.
@lonettomb: RETRIBUTION MOTHERFUCKER
@jwerthsbeard: Offense wins games, beards win championships.
@MoCJones: Poetic Justice
@estebomb: Anything I said about being hesitant about trading for Roy Oswalt I must go back in time and call myself a fucking idiot for.
@jrgini37: Please guys, I beg of you. Give Roy just ONE more run tonight. I know you can do it, you lazy fucks.
@PhilliesDoll: Please Phillies offense, for Pete Incavaliga’s sake, score some runs!
@DashTreyhorn: Ryan, you could strike out 11 times tonight, just not in this AB. Please do something that helps the team.
@michellew_: J-Roll pep talk effective? I don’t care if he offered him sex after the game. Howard hit the ball! He hit the damn ball!
@estebomb: Nice way to work the walk there by Wertz. Please please please kill a baseball here Rauuuuuul!
@MrsUtleyLS: Dear Phillies: Please don’t waste this.
@NCTPadres: Phillies loaded bags vs. Padres. Mike Adams w/ 1 out. Walked 2 and yielded 1B. Joe Thatcher in vs. Raul Ibanez. Lefties hit .143 vs him.
@Laid_off_and_u: only available options for Raul: base hit, homer, or sac fly.
@Utley4God: Letting the bat fly at the defender seems to make defense more difficult. Let’s keep that in mind.
@WWBD102: First pitch swinging, huh Shane? Come on.
@DingDong1003: Choochie-poo is gonna hit like a 74-run home run here.
@utley: Mike Sweeney just tripped in the dugout and MY entire life flashed before my eyes.
@Ciciretti21: An angel whispered in my ear “if the Phillies win this game, Kruk gets his testicle back.” GO PHILLIES do it for Krukker!!!
@MandaBrill: It’s ok, Chooch. At least you didn’t swing on the first pitch. ❤
@Utley4God: Letting Dom start in the place of Shane against righty starters is so obviously the right thing to do. I can’t think of one reason not to.
@phanatic_in_nyc: Oswalt is straight-up dealing right now, in full “gonna protect the offense” mode.
@NCTPadres: Of the 102 pitches Oswalt has thrown, according to Yahoo! box, 78 for strikes.
@dochammy: Just for the record, win or lose…I disagree with pulling Oswalt here.
@Phrontiersman: Wasting Dom’s service time like this is just criminal.
@jradepright: Its Brad Lidge time…. Plop plop, fizz fizz???
@BravesDiva: Check out Matt Stairs’ lip jacket! Effin sweet!
@Laid_off_and_u: Well at least Stairs does not have the fleet of foot like…. nevermind. Pinch runner
@MoCJones: HEART PALPATATIONS!!!
@chrismayphilly: Oh, for the love of…
@petzrawr: Brad “Facepalm” Lidge
@PhoulBallz: Brad Lidge just balked in the tying run in the bottom of the 9th inning. Awful.
@SwiftOnSports: How… I… Speechless
@chrisvito: Gotta hand it to them: the Phillies are finding new ways to lose.
@CoreySeidman: Whats funny to me is that Charlie would have hit Halladay 100 out of 100 times in that situation. But he didn’t with Oswalt…
@chrismayphilly: That was THE most blatant balk I’ve ever seen in my entire life. It was the Mona Lisa of balks. A 2nd grader could have called it. The only way that balk could have been more infuriating is if that smug punk Scott Barry had made the call.
@rdonovan316: I will go to bed pissed off even if we win this game.
@bossman767: At this point you could put the Little League World Series on one TV and the Phillies on a smaller TV next to it and I couldn’t tell the difference. WTF is happening?
@lackdude: I want my life back, Phillies.
@SwiftOnSports: Wow… what restraint from the home-plate umpire. Take note Scott Barry.
@kotibiney: HI I AM A PHILLIES BATTER AND I SWING AT ANYTHING THAT MOVES.
@kdonovan13: Well, shit. Madson could’ve stood there and watched 3 strikes go by…and we wouldn’t have burned another pitcher/pinch hitter.
@DashTreyhorn: I know Charlie loves to waste pitchers and stuff, but keep it to one a night.
@HighCheese: If the Phils and Astros can last 15 innings at Citizens Bank Park without someone scoring a third run, imagine what can happen tonight at PETCO.
@Eaglesfan710: What inning will Roy Halladay be in left field tonight?
@thejokeson: Rollins with a leadoff double. DON’T WASTE IT!
@ChikPhilA: Safe safe safe safe!
@Utley4God: Jimmy Rollins slide was off the charts amazing. Speechless.
@Estebomb: Smooth Criminal is Jimmy Rollins’ theme song now.
@PhilliesNation: Howard would swing and miss at tee ball
@Phrontiersman: 0-for-4 with 3 Ks. 0-for-7 with 5 Ks. 0-for-4 with 2 Ks. 0-for-5 with 4 Ks. These are Ryan Howard’s last 4 starts.
@magelb: Choose Your Own Charlie Adventure: What will his explanation for Oswalt be: A) He was due up B) 102 pitches C) Lidge is going good. You pick.
@JuniorGeneral: It’s kind of adorable how Ryan Howard is startled every time he strikes out, even when it happens five times in one game.
@DMonie: Woooooo, THANK YOU Chad Durbin!!! I will be able to sleep, tonight!! 🙂
@jmiller678: Nice to see another team slamming bats and griping for a change.
@ThePhillyPhans: Phillies 2 games back and .5 games up on the wild card!
