I wanted to pass this along …

The USA Today Kindness community blog launched a Twitter campaign where the top “tweet-getting charity” will receive one full-page, full-color ad in USA TODAY — a value of $189,400 – to promote its efforts. From April 13 through April 16, whichever charity gets the most #AmericaWants tweets and retweets will win the ad.

The Moyer Foundation is asking for your help by posting the line below in your Twitter account:

I will be signing copies of my Phillies book “The Good, The Bad, & The Uglyfrom 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Borders on S. Broad Street in Center City. I hope you can stop by. The Zo Zone is on Facebook and Twitter.


Was anyone else bothered by that pitch Madson threw to Pudge? I mean, the Nats had guys at second and third with two outs. Capps (their closer) was the next batter. Why didn’t Madson walk Pudge once he allowed taveras to take second? I think that is the NO-BRAINER of no-brainers in baseball. The Nats would not have risked pinch-hitting for Capps for the possible short term benefit of an extra run or two because the Phils bats would have demolished whoever else would have closed the game for them. Instead Pudge knocks in the winning runs and Madson gets the meaningless strikeout of Capps. DUMB. DUMB. DUMB!!!

Sorry, but I am not on Titter or facebook, so I can’t help Jamie.

C’mon erichh, get on “Titter.” It’s fun and not nearly as dirty as it sounds.

Aside from the result, I like these rings better than the ones they got in 2008. They were ape-sized and gaudy, but I suppose that gaudy is the reward for winning and a sensible design is for second place? Such is the world.
Let’s see if Brazier leaves this one in the rest room.

muleman, gaudy or not, I much prefer the 2008 ring considering the added meaning behind it.

And erich, I don’t think Riggleman would have sent Capps up to bat if they walked Pudge, although I agree that walking him was the right thing to do. Riggleman knew he needed the runs. Capps has four saves, but his WHIP is almost 2. He’s walking a tightrope and it is going to bite him soon.

agree with phan, walking Pudge was the right move but no way Capps would have hit with the bases loaded and a one run lead

phan and zach, then WHY did Riggleman bring Capps in so early. Why bring in your closer unless you intend on using him for 1 and two-thirds innings? Capps actually threw his 27th pitch 3 mph faster than his average other pitches. He had his good stuff today and Riggleman knew it. I still think Capps would have batted if Pudge got the intentional walk.

Very nice write-up. I absolutely love this website. Stick
with it!
