Sweeping a team is always nice, but sweeping the Mets always feels just a little bit better. Especially when that sweep happens under the bright lights in New York City (though only one of the games was actually under the lights.)
The Phillies sent Kyle Kendrick to the mound. Now my distaste for Kendrick is well, strong. If you would like to read about my dislike, you can find it here, and here (in poem form!!!) and here, oh and here. So yeah, Kyle Kendrick is not, umm, liked by me.
Which is why the Mets should be completely embarrassed that he somehow held them only 3 hits, while pitching a Complete Game Shut Out. For some reason, he pitched very well. I posted on Facebook the following message:
I currently live in a world where Kyle Kendrick just pitched a 3-hit CGSO against the Mets and has the lowest ERA on the Phillies staff.
It was good knowing you guys enjoy the apocalypse.
And I truly believe it. The Phillies have a staff of Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels, Roy Halladay and, as of right now, Kyle Kendrick has the best ERA. That’s just wrong.
