NLDS Game Four Thread: Phillies @ Rockies


Much to everyone’s surprise, Brad Lidge managed to preserve a one-run lead in the ninth inning last night, giving the Phillies a 2-1 series lead over those pesky Colorado Rockies. Both clubs are going back to their top starters on regular rest, so it’ll be Ubaldo Jimenez (0-1, 9.00 in the playoffs) against Cliff Lee (1-0, 1.00). First pitch in chilly Denver is set for 6:07pm ET; TBS has the call. Chat about the game here if you want.


  1. Just watching till the Jets come on. But the Phillies wasted no time.

  2. Evan says:

    That got out in a hurry.

  3. Mike Pop says:

    Ubaldo is awesome.

  4. Apparently, it’s a balmy 48 degrees in Colorado tonight. I don’t understand why teams that play in cold climes do not build domes. The Twins too are going to regret that decision come April.

  5. Alan says:

    Damn, you knows its bad when Ryan Howard outruns a potential double play.

  6. Handtius says:

    Assuming we get to the WS, who is the toughest opponent from the NL?

        Totally agree. If anyone in their bullpen gets a clue, they could definitely beat us. Their lineup is every bit as good as ours, they have three good starting pitchers (Lee/Hamels/Happ) to match ours. If anyone in that bullpen can get someone out, they can beat us. The relievers they have are high upside guys who’ve just been off track, unlike the Angels who have middling relievers who are what they are.

        I can’t see the Dodgers or Rockies beating us unless something weird happened. Dodgers rotation is a shambles and their lineup doesn’t scare me. I don’t think Manny’s the same player he used to be.

    Is It Friday yet.

  8. I’m “watching” this game with a Phillies fan. It’s interesting.

  10. Chase Utley is dreamy.

  11. Evan says:

    Werth is strong like bull.

  12. Evan says:

    Oh, Tulo. *shakes head*

  13. The Artist says:

    Ibanez doing his best Matt Holiday impersonation.

  14. Lanny says:

    Anyone that says bullpens dont mean much or anyone can get those outs hasnt been watching Philly.

  15. C says:

    I’m getting serious deja vu here

  16. AndrewYF says:

    I really loved Street when he was on Oakland (this was before the Yankees could consistently develop or utilize quality relievers), but he is simply a blown save machine.

    Boy oh boy,would I love to see Carlos Gonzales in pinstripes.
