Bad Timing

It's been a busy week around here.  What with school and election preps and unscheduled work duties, it's been a lot of hurry up and wait.

Like waiting for the Phillies to get a two-out hit (or a hit of any kind) with a runner in scoring position.  I know the World Series is currently tied 1-1, but the Phillies could easily be up 2-0.  With a timely hit here or there, they could have blown the Rays out in Game 1 and scored enough runs to overcome errors in Game 2.

I mean, the Rays aren't exactly hitting the cover off the ball.  The Phillies, on the other hand, are actually hitting (Carlos Ruiz!  where was HE all season!).  But, once they get a guy on base, he better steal home because none of his teammates seems to want to drive him in.  How many times have the Phillies had a man on second with nobody out and failed to score?  Three?  Four?

The Phillies better improve their timing if 2008 is to be their time.
