After the Phillies won on the walkoff homerun last night, I feel like they are in pretty good shape. The only problem is that we play Atlanta tonight for a three-game series. With only a three-game lead, we better not get swept or else the lead is gone. However, we will not get swept because we have the best threesome in baseball coming in the series. For those of you who don't know, that would mean Cole Hamels, Roy Oswalt, and the doctor Roy Halladay. That triumvirate can knock out any three Atlanta might throw, but what I'm really concerned about is the offense. The Phillies offense has been far too inconsistent this year for me to bet on them on any given night. However, I also know that we have one of the most dynamic offenses when they are being productive. Very few lineups can match up with the power that Philadelphia can bring. Incidentally, how about Jayson Werth becoming a Scott Boras client? He's going to finish well hopefully, and then he will make a monster paycheck. I just hope that the Phillies can hold on to him, but I guess if we can't, Dominic Brown will have to take over in the future and become a consistent contributor.

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 email@example.com with story ideas, criticism, comments, or honestly anything that will not crash my computer when I open it.
