MOOSIC, PA – Maybe Derek Jeter liked his last excursion through Scranton/Wilkes-Barre so much, he couldn’t help taking another trip there.

More likely, that destination is becoming the place to be for rehabbing New York Yankee stars.

Whatever the reason, Jeter will make his second rehab appearance of the season with the Triple-A RailRiders starting with tonight’s 7:05 game with Pawtucket and is expected to hang around with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre possibly through Saturday.

And that’s encouraging news to a Scranton/Wilkes-Barre team that missed out on drawing some prime Yankees players who were working their way back to the big leagues at other levels of the organization in the past.

Game Six Tonight!!

Game six of the World Series starts at 7:30 pm tonight from Yankee Stadium.  Hoping we can pull out another win.  If we play like Monday night we sure can.  I think the game plan should be score as many runs as humanly possible as soon as possible.  That seems to work against them!  A shut out would be SWEET!!!!!!!!!!

GO PHILLIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Phillies Hang On To Beat The Yankees 8 – 6 In Game 5

The Phillies hung on in another nail-biter tonight to beat the Yankees 8-6.  The Phillies took a 3-1 lead when Chase Utley hit a three run homer. 

We continued to lead the rest of the game but the Yankees closed the gap with 3 runs in the 8th inning and 1 run in the 9th inning. 

Lee did a great job pitching tonight and Park and Madson finished off the game.  Madson struck out Teixeira to end the game! 

Game 6 here we come!!!


Phillies Suffer Heartbreaking 9th Inning Loss To The Yankees

I thought we were going to pull out a win until the 9th inning…too upset to discuss further at this time. 

Lee is back in tonight so maybe, just maybe, we can at least win one more game before we go back to NYC. 


Thank God for the Eagles today.  Otherwise ……


Phils Lose Early Lead – Yankees Win 8 – 5

Game three was a heartbreaking 8-5 loss to the Yankees at home.  The Phils lost their early 3-0 lead over the Yankees with the final score at Citizen’s Bank Park being 8-5.

Let’s hope for better results tonight!

Go Eagles and Go Phillies!!!


World Series Tied Up At 1-1

So the damn Yankees tied it up tonight after a 3-1 win.  BUT the next game is at Citizens Bank Park here in Philadelphia so we have the home field advantage!  Look out, Philly is in the house on Saturday!


World Champion Philadelphia Phillies 6 – Pathetic Yankees 1

So A-Rod and friends didn’t exactly grind us into the dirt tonight.  Whatsamatta boys?  Havin’ an off night???  Does it usually take you 9 innings to score a run?? 

Guess being over-confident, cockey, arrogant and disrespectful of our Phillies got you a bad case of Karma.  What goes around comes around.  Or in the words of Bea Arthur (Maude) God will get you for that!

Maybe the Yankees should eat some humble pie before they come back tomorrow!  Just sayin’….


Phillies vs. Yankees In The World Series

At least we don’t have to travel far.  The defending champs, Philadelphia Phillies, will show the big spending Yankees how we roll!

GO PHILLIES!!!  It’s beat Yankee time!!!
