Unlikely vs. Irrational: 8/5/08

Every time Jamie Moyer faces the Marlins, I think to myself: This is it. He simply can't beat these guys again. They've seen him too many times, they're too good, and he's only human--he's going to have an off night against Florida sooner or later.

I don't know if this is Negadelphianism, reverse black-cattery or simply mild neurosis unleashed. But I hope I'm as wrong this time as I have been all the other times--or if I'm right, that the Phillies knock Josh Johnson silly. As strong as the team has looked over the last week-plus, they've got to start beating real pitchers eventually, and this week against their closest divisional pursuer would be a fine time for it.
