Didinger and Jaws on Baskett

caught some of the didinger and macnow show on wip on the way up to sesame place this morning and heard a few interesting tidbits.

- both ray and jaws think baskett is the real deal. jaws said he noted a few things that baskett did in running his routes that were surprising for a rookie. if jaws and ray think so, that's good enough for me. i'm officially on the hank baskett bandwagon.

- ray says that bill parcells thinks jaws is the best and smartest analyst going, and not just for football, but "for any sport at any time". that's pretty high praise.

- jaws noted the same difference that i saw in the running plays the birds are using now vs the ones in the past two seasons. jaws says they are running "attitude" plays now and that juan castillo is emphasizing that in training camp. "prove to andy that he should believe we can run the ball"

- ray thinks max jean-gillies is the real deal as well and that herremans is just a stop gap until jean-gillies gets up to speed

I'm also on the Baskett board. He looks better than any of the other Eagles receivers, although that may not be saying much.

Tough loss for the Phillies today, especially Chase and "The Bat," who my son has nicknamed "The Out,"
even though he likes the 5 hat the club gave him today.

Nice to hear that the Thunder rolled again. Phil Hughes pitched 5 scoreless innings, giving up 2 hits and fanning 9. I know, I know, the Yankees wouldn't have traded him for Abreu. Sure.

I just checked out Corey & Carson's blog. It's pretty entertaining and worth a visit for anyone still interested in the Phillies.

anyone else notice Brett Myers lacks hte balls to be an ace? They needed that W badly yesterday and he threw like a turd. I'd trade him.
