The Phillies are finishing up their three game series with the Mets this afternoon. They've beaten the Mets rather soundly in the first two games, and so it would follow that this is the game when they screw it all up and give up elevendy billion runs while only notching one hit.
But please don't do that today, Phillies. Please. Don't screw this up. Cole Hamels is on the mound today, and he seems to have finally figured out what was going with his first few rather bad starts. He deserves run support. And Chooch! Chooch is back! Oh, glorious Chooch. Thank God. April was a bleak month without him. Let's hope he comes back swinging.
Hamels and Chooch face off against Jon Niese and (probably) the unbelievably annoying John Buck. The superiority of Hamels and Chooch is so apparent that we need not discuss it further.
Discuss the awesomeness of Chooch and the game in the comments below.
