Can’t Forget the Motor City

Looks like Rod Stewart was at the game today in a Hamels jersey.

Speaking of ’60s people who hang around, Martha Reeves is still reminding us not to forget about the motor city (at the 1:38 mark):

It was hard to forget about the motor city today.  Detroit fans all over Bright House, sporting new stuff as well as – speaking of the ’60s – Al Kaline tributes.

The Phillies put on another anemic offensive display again today against the team from the motor city, managing only five singles, several of which stayed in the infield.  There is search a dearth of talent on the team that fans will get excited about anyone who looks like he can swing a bat – hence the Odubel Herrera jersey sightings today.

The park looked like it was a sellout this afternoon.  Gorgeous weather and Tiger fans in from Lakeland were responsible for that, load the sections behind the dugout on the first base line and all the way down to the RF corner.

The Phillies themselves are so mind-numbingly inept at the plate, and depleted for starting pitching, they’re bringing in the Phanatic for every game rather than his one or two spring appearances as in year’s past.  He would do Opening Day and St. Patty’s Day and that was it, but this year is badly needed to keep the fans awake and involved.

But even the Phanatic couldn’t forget the motor city today.  Symbolic of the Phils offense, he sputtered trying to exit the field and needed assistance from the grounds crew.
