Holliday, Rockies Slide Into Series With Phils

Holliday, Rockies Slide Into Series With Phils

Jesus that took forever. Just before midnight, the San Diego Padres'
went ahead in the 13th inning of the NL Wild Card play-in game, with
Scott Hairston taking one out against Colorado's 9th pitcher of the
game. Most Phillies fans have been hoping the Padres would be the team
they'd face in the first round, as Colorado has been on fire lately
(including against the Phillies), and San Diego had to use Cy Young
shoe-in Jake Peavy tonight, taking him out of the rotation until
probably game 3.

Then Colorado came back, with MVP candidate Matt Holliday taking the RBI lead from Ryan Howard (needing an extra game to do it), and scoring the winning run—or did he? On the replay, Michael Barrett looked to block the plate, with Holliday missing the plate and doing a full-on face plant. (note: Sager is a loser) Holliday went 2-6 in the game, putting up 3 huge Ks before coming through with a huge liner that would have left CBP in a hurry.

The Rockies have won 14 of their last 15, including slaughtering the
Phightens at home in September. Both teams win by slugging, and both
play in run-friendly stadiums, so we're probably in store for some
football scores this week (we need them from one of our teams).

I hate to say it, but the Rockies are for real. Troy Tulowitsky may
be the Rookie of the Year, Holliday is admittedly one of the best in
the game, Garrett Atkins snapped a first-half slump to finish over
.300, and they've gotten solid pitching from the top half of their
rotation. Sure we would have preferred the Padres, but that's why they
just choked got eliminated. We jokingly hoped this
game would go to extra extra innings, and it did, causing the Rockies
to go deep down their bench and wear out some relievers, which could
really play a factor in the series vs. the Phillies.

It looks like it's going to be a helluva series any way you slice it, with both teams on fire heading into the postseason.

There's a Chance a change could be coming for Eagles at left guard

On Monday, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said he didn't want to "push any panic buttons" because of his offensive line. 

Turns out, he might be ready to. 

During the portion of Wednesday's practice that is open to reporters, Chance Warmack took first-team left guard reps between Jason Peters and Jason Kelce during individual drills. Isaac Seumalo was no longer working with the first team. It could possibly be a sign of things to come. 

The team portion of practice is closed to media members. 

Seumalo, the second-year offensive lineman out of Oregon State, had a terrible game against the Chiefs on Sunday. He gave up four of the six sacks the Eagles allowed and three of them went to defensive end Chris Jones, who was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week. 

Seumalo, 23, admitted after the 27-20 loss Sunday that he needed to play better (see story). Meanwhile, Pederson pointed out some of Seumalo's issues — dropping his head, late hands, getting off the ball late — but said they were correctable. 

"So we'll evaluate the whole thing," Pederson continued Wednesday after saying he didn't want to push panic buttons. "It's not — again, it's not just one guy. If you're going to point the finger too, you can point it at me; I'm part of the pie, too. We'll evaluate it and we'll keep evaluating it."

Seumalo was handed the starting left guard job at the start of this training camp. The team decided that and was set to release veteran, and previous starter, Allen Barbre until they were able to get a conditional seventh-round pick for him. Looking back, they might have made that move too hastily. 

For the first two games of the season, Warmack has been inactive. It's the first time in his NFL career that he's been healthy and hasn't played. The former 10th overall pick joined the Eagles this offseason on a one-year deal but has since signed an extension to keep him under contract through the 2018 season. Warmack, after the first game of the season, said he was trying not to read into anything (see story)

In Philadelphia, Warmack has been reunited with his college position coach Jeff Stoutland. That was a big part of the reason he decided to join the Eagles. 

In addition to Warmack, the Eagles also have veteran Stefen Wisniewski available to play guard.
