Like A Horse With a Broken Leg


Just shoot 'em.

It's the same old story really.  You could cut and paste what has been written about this team all season long and it'd probably apply to yesterday's loss.  I don't have any in-depth analysis of the game.  To be honest, I'm kind of over this team.  They never came close to reaching the level that we thought they could.  Why not?  Mostly because they're just not that good of a football team.

Phil Sheridan sums it all up fairly well
.  Go there to commiserate.

This is pretty awesome as well:

Think about this: the Eagles threw for just 179 yards against a Giants
defense that gave up 296 last week to Rex Grossman
. Donovan McNabb was
afraid to pull the trigger on throws all day, overrelying on checkdowns
and averaging just 6.0 yards per attempt against a defense that has
allowed 7.03 this season.

Or just enjoy some pretty pictures: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Union see 4-game winning streak end in shutout loss to Real Salt Lake

BOX SCORE

SANDY, Utah -- Joao Plata scored his first goal of the season and Real Salt Lake beat the Union, 1-0, on Saturday night to snap Philadelphia's club-record winning streak at four games.

Plata tapped in his goal in the 36th minute after quickly exchanging short passes twice with Jefferson Savarino. Tony Beltran got the play started by saving the ball just before it went over the goal line.

The Union (4-5-5) had a chance to tie it in stoppage time, but goalie Nick Rimando blocked Haris Medunjanin's belt-high free kick and Salt Lake (4-8-2) cleared it after a scramble in front of the net.

Union goalkeeper Andre Blake made seven saves.

Howie Kendrick makes 4th rehab appearance in Lehigh Valley

Howie Kendrick makes 4th rehab appearance in Lehigh Valley

Howie Kendrick on Saturday night made his fourth rehab appearance in Triple A during Lehigh Valley's 13-1 rout of the Louisville Bats in Allentown.

Kendrick went 1 for 5 with a run scored and three strikeouts. He also grounded into a double play and left two runners in scoring position.

It was his second rehab game playing third base. He played third during his appearance in the IronPigs' 8-4 loss Thursday to the Indianapolis Indians. He was 0 for 1 in three plate appearances with a run scored and was hit by a pitch twice (see story).

The Phillies' plan for Kendrick was to have him play a minimum four games at Lehigh Valley. He played left field in two games and third base twice. Pete Mackanin said Wednesday that Kendrick would also get a game at first base but he hasn't gotten a game at first yet.

There is a chance Kendrick could be recalled Sunday before the Phillies’ series finale against the Cincinnati Reds depending on how he feels.

Kendrick has been sidelined since April 15 with an oblique strain. In 10 games before the injury, Kendrick went 13 for 39 (.333) with five extra-base hits and four walks while exclusively playing left field.
