Seriously, I was so excited when he hit that 2 run HR to give the Phillies and Roy the lead last night. I've been a fan of Dobbs really since his answer to the "if you could travel back in time, where/when would you go" aired in CBP during "Ask the Phillies" early '08. (His answer - Prehistoric times to see the dinosaurs, like, the pterodactyl)
I stuck by him when everyone was calling for his head this year, and was sad when he was sent down to the Iron Pigs (though I was kind of excited to go see him play up there in Allentown). Then the big blow came last week Eden both Uts and Polly had to go on the DL, and Greggy got called back up after only 4 games (and 2 hits) as an Iron Pig.
Since coming back, Dobbs is hitting .333! Sure, he's making some errors in the field, but so is Cody Ransom. (I know during Saturday's game with Cody everyone was all high on him with his hits and what not...)
My favorite quote from Charlie after the game last night, when asked if the more regular at bats were helping Dobbs with his hitting. "Ten thousand percent," answered Chuck.
Keep it up Dobbers!
Photos are up from the weekend trip to Pittsburgh to see the Phillies play the Pirates - see the link to the right in the side column...I'll have an actual post with some highlights up later today at some time.
