1) Tim Hudson: He's just one of the aces on our staff. He won the NL Comeback player of the Year for 2010. He's been lights out for most of the year and dominated the Phillies the last game of the season. He also pitched superbly against the Giants in Game 3. What can be said about Tim Hudson other than, chicks dig the soul patch.
Everyone is hyped up about the Phailies with Halladay, Hamels, and Oswalt. But we what it takes to fight to fight water. Our pitching staff is FIYA!
2) Tommy Hanson: He's only 2 years into the majors and is one of the best young pitchers in the game. I can't help but think back to last year when it was Kris Medlen who got the call up to the Bigs before Hanson. Did he whine or complain about it? No. He was happy for his roommate! He subsequently got the call-up shortly after Medlen and didn't disappoint. People may say he suffered a "sophomore slump" but Tommy got Kawakami'd by not getting a win for about a month or so, even though he pitched well.
3) Derek Lowe has been on an absolute tear this year since September. He went 5-0 that month. He should have won Game 1 of the NLDS, or at least not suffered such a horrible fate. With this new slider, he's scary. This is the Derek Lowe we signed for.
I'm not afraid. Braves country shouldn't be either. Lets win Game 4. Win game 5. And have H2Lowe start the series in Phailadelphia! Whadda'ya say?
