Garza: Phils' lineup gives Rays a break

Posted on: October 20, 2008 5:04 pm
 

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Joe Maddon says the Phillies are like an American League team, because they have a deep lineup.

Maddon's Tampa Bay players may not agree.

"I'll tell you what," ALCS MVP Matt Garza said today. "Facing that Phillies lineup, compared to facing the Red Sox lineup, the Tigers lineup or the Yankees lineup, you get a little bit of a break with the Phillies lineup, especially pitching in Philly. There's that nine-hole guy (pitcher) I get to throw against. I'm pretty pumped. I get to be that nine-hole guy, too. I'm excited about that."

While Maddon won't announce his World Series rotation until Tuesday, Garza pitched Game 7 against the Red Sox on Sunday night, so he won't be available until Game 3, on Saturday in Philadelphia. Maddon could go with Scott Kazmir and James Shields in the first two games, on normal rest.

Garza did have nice things to say about Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino.

"(Rollins) and Victorino are their sparkplugs, man," Garza said. "Just like Boston had Coco (Crisp) and (Jacoby) Ellsbury, and Chicago had (Orlando) Cabrera and (Alexei) Ramirez. Those guys are what make it go. (Chase) Utley and (Ryan) Howard, you've got to watch out, because those are the ones who drop the big bombs. But if you keep Rollins and Victorino off the bases, you can control the running game, shut down their offense a little bit and let them rely on their big swings."

Way to go Garza, good call on that 9th batter is an easy out.  Well game 4 just ended, The Phillies have won 2 at home so far, which was supposed to be easy for you guys right? Oh and a small little note, that 9th batter spot, you know the pitcher, cant hit, Blanton hit a home run. I think its just about time for you to bite the ole tongue eh?

yo lh1,

     I guess you forgot to mention Howard when you implied that Utley was the only feared hitter in the lineup.  10-2 was really close, it was just a matter of time b4 the big bats woke up.  And as far as good pitching stopping good hitting youre right the Phillies sure have shut those 3-4 hitters down 0-28.  have a good one Mr superstar
