Well, how about the Phillies? We are looking a lot better now with seven consecutive wins. However, that will not be my main point tonight; I just wanted to emphasize that fact to all of you who might not be paying attention. Rather, how about we focus on Roy Halladay? He was excellent tonight and going the distance and only allowing one run that really shouldn't have been. However, that was his eighth complete game of the season. He leads the Major Leagues in that category, and that fact alone is very impressive. He has had a few rough starts, but he has mostly gone deep into games for the Phillies and given the bullpen a much-needed break. Halladay is still relatively young, but I have to wonder about his arm. He consistently throws over 100 pitches per outing. This has to drain his arm, but he also is in incredible shape. He is a big man, but his delivery seems to be relatively low stress which will help prevent injury in the future. He seems like he will not be wearing down anytime soon, so Phillies fans have that to look forward to for a while more.

After a year of economics, I have learned about supply and demand; to be honest, that's about all I remember. That's the concept I'm applying to this blog; I am supplying the quality writing that you as the reader demand (or at least I hope I am living up to your standards). My name is Zak Schmoll; I am a Business Administration and Statistics double major at the University of Vermont. I have been a sports writer in Central Vermont with the Central Vermont Sports Network, The Bridge, as well as a regular contributor to "The Local Angle," by Jim Higgins in the Times Argus, but I have now taken my audience to the Internet. I hope you will come along with me on my random journey through my mind on the Perpetual Blogging Co. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with story ideas, criticism, comments, or honestly anything that will not crash my computer when I open it.
