No Flash to Gordon: Nats 11 - Phils 6

Gordon was all bunged up on opening day!Oh brother! That about sums it up. What else can you say when the Phillies manage to bring the game tied into the ninth and the Tom Gordon gives up 5 runs?

The Phils spread their runs out over the innings, including two jacks; one by Utley and one from Rollins. The unfortunate match for those two homers were the two errors, one my Rollins and one by Ruiz.


The real story will have to be the total selfdestruct of the Phillies bullpen. Between Madsen and Gordon seven runs were plated by the hot-off-the-start Nationals. Gordon looked absolutely lost on the mound, and now I get to listen to all the Yanker fans say brilliant lines like "That why we got rid of him!"


I know that it's too early to be looking at statistics, but opening day certainly make some interesting numbers. Based on what we've seen so far, Jim Thome of the White Sox is on pace for 324 home runs and 648 RBI this season, the Atlanta bullpen is on target to give up 810 runs, 324 in the form of homers. Then there's the Philly pen. Tom Gordon's current ERA is 135.00, and we'll see the relievers give up about 1134 runs this season.
