Not many highlights from the Phillies loss on Tuesday in San Francisco but clearly the most enjoyable half-inning of the game came when T-Mac and Wheels talked about Larry Andersen trying to steal cotton candy from a vendor only to have L.A. attempt a sugar swipe once again.
At least that was entertaining. The Phillies, not so much on Tuesday night. Joe Blanton does not reward those troopers who stay up late into the morning hours quite like Roy Halladay does. Heavy B wasn't great but as Charlie pointed out after the game, Joe kept the Phils in it.
The sixth inning, when the Phils had the bases loaded with no outs and could only get one across the plate was the most frustrating sequence in an overall frustrating night.
Other nominees for most frustrating moment include Placido Polanco's awful tag on a steal at third by Buster Posey which would lead to more runs being allowed. Chooch had Posey flat nailed but the tag was just bad and missed Posey's hands entirely before they reached the bag. Polly's 0-4 was also not enjoyable in any way.

Sports Ilustrated gets it. The characters in Philadelphia sports are some of the best in the world right now.
On SI's list of "77 Reasons Why We Love Sports," the alien otherwise known as Rhys Hoskins and Joel Embiid's Twitter both make appearances. While the NFL Red Zone Channel inexplicably comes in at No. 1, Embiid's Twitter comes in at a worthy No. 2. His recent tweet about the Los Angeles Chargers' beleaguered rookie kicker is a great example of why Embiid is a must-follow.
Hoskins, the Phillies' record-breaking slugger, comes in at No. 65. His latest mind-bending accomplishment is becoming the fastest player ever to 45 RBIs. With Hoskins' ridiculous natural power and impressive plate discipline, this stretch doesn't look like a fluke. He could be one of the top reasons Philadelphians love sports for the next 15 years.
