woulda been a great win for the mets and a terrible loss for the phillies if the mets would have been able to plate another run after the delgado bomb, but, alas, thems the breaks.
Agreed. The Mets won a game like that against the nationals a couple weeks ago. They showed something coming back like that.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Hulking Jim Thome. Rugged Manny Ramirez. Brawny Adam Dunn.

"The thought of these big macho men, swinging pink bats to help women with breast cancer ... what a novel idea," Louisville Slugger president John Hillerich said Tuesday.

Dozens of major-league players are expected to use pink bats in Mother's Day games.
Major League Baseball granted permission for players to use the colorful bats -- baby pink, at that -- for Mother's Day. They're part of a weeklong program to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Derek Jeter, David Eckstein and Marcus Giles are among dozens of players who intend to try them Sunday. This is the first time pink has been approved for bats -- dyed at the Louisville Slugger factory, they're usually black, brown, reddish or white.

Kevin Mench was among several Texas players who wanted their mother's names burned on the bats. The Rangers slugger, who homered in seven straight games earlier this season, also planned to have a bat for his grandmother, who died from breast cancer.

"My mom is the glue of our family, and I just want to do something to thank her for all that she has done," Mench said before Tuesday night's game against Minnesota. "At the same time, we are raising money for a great cause."

Howard Smith, senior vice president for licensing for MLB, said the idea for the pink bats struck a chord with commissioner Bud Selig and other executives. The question was how many players would use the sticks.

"It takes a big man to swing a pink bat in a major league game," Smith said.

More than 400 bats were being made for 50-plus players. David Ortiz, Jim Edmonds, Mark Teixeira, Michael Young and Hank Blalock were also on the list.

The Louisville Slugger factory started making the bats last week. Players were still placing orders as of Tuesday, and bats will probably be made and shipped overnight until Thursday or Friday.

"The response has been phenomenal," Hillerich said.

The bats posed something of a logistical problem for Louisville Slugger. Each player uses a different model and size, so coloring, branding and shipping them for Sunday's game has been a challenge, company spokesman Dan Burgess said.

Along with the pink bats, players and all on-field personnel will wear pink wristbands and a pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness on their uniforms. The pink ribbon logo will appear on the bases and on commemorative home plates, and the lineups will be written on pink cards.

The bats, along with the home plates and lineup cards, will be autographed by the teams and will be auctioned later, with the proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Foundation.

looks like the mets just gave the ole pink bat to the phillies...

10-0 in the top of the 3rd

i think it's safe to say the phillies winning streak is over... if they come back to win this game, i shall print out these words and eat them... hewson shall be witness to the eating in boston in a couple of weeks

but of course, once agian, i left glavine on the bench of my fantasy team

Ah...eventually the streak of our Phils has to come to an end, but the fact that they have had a streak is interesting because they never got hot like that before. Ever. This team has something that the other teams hasn't, with fiery guys like Aaron Rowand. This is the first Phillies team I've felt confidence in since I can remember.

Damn Phillies, you couldn't have scored an additional 10 runs to add to my entertainment value.

its truly a priviledge to watch this guy play everyday. not only is he a stud on the field, but he is an even better guy off the field. there are really no words to describe him.
