OH HOW I LOVE THE NATIONAL MEDIA

LOL

Series tied? Really? I guess no one told Jimmy Rollins. Johnny cut-corners should have waited until the game ended before he hit the publish button. Idiots.

AGAIN?!

Sigh.

I wonder what Hamels’ reaction to Utley throwing away another potential double play was this time? Did he act like a fan again? Probably not. It is extremely hard to get mad at Chase F’n Utley but seriously, again?! After that happened the icing on the cake was a bases loaded walk to stand as the winning run for the Doyers. Definitely a complete let down. The Phillies 100% threw that game away, no pun intended. Going home with the series tied at one a piece gives us home field advantage though and I still believe we win this series in six games, but hopefully less. Oh well, no more dwelling on the poor showing yesterday, here is a picture after the jump of Russell Martin looking terrified of a baseball.

PHILS TAKE 1-0 NLCS LEAD

Chooch certainly earned his treats last night. Seriously this guy just turns into a beast come playoff time. Usually you will take anything you can get out of a catcher offensively as long as they are a rock behind the plate. With Chooch, it seems, we get to have our ice cream and eat it too. Taking a 1-0 series lead is definitely important and the Phils seem to have become accustomed to it. They did it every series last year and have continued that trend this year. Now I’d hate to focus on something negative about last night, but alas I must…

SITE UPDATE AND WTF IS GOING ON

OK so obviously the site went down much longer than planned. I was hoping to move this site to self hosting so that I could do everything I want to do and not just what wordpress allows me to do. The site will be moving very soon, as I’m working on something now. But for now here is the Douche of the Day, because I have missed calling people douches…

THE SUCKING CONTINUES

IF YOU COULD SEE HIS HEAD HE WOULD BE WEARING A PHILLIES HAT

IF YOU COULD SEE HIS HEAD HE WOULD BE WEARING A PHILLIES HAT

I don’t even know what else I am supposed to say at this point, honestly. The Phillies have been terrible. Jayson Stark pointed out last night that Cole Hamels allowed more runs in the game yesterday than he did in all 5 of his postseason starts. That is flat out ridiculous. The pitching sucks, the bullpen sucks, the offense sucks, the coaching sucks. Seriously everything that has to do with the Phillies right now sucks.

The Phillies are in fact still in first place but guess what, the MARLINS, yes that shitty fish team, are only a half game out. Ruben Amaro Jr. better be prepared to get creative for this trade deadline. Indians want a “future #1″ for Cliff Lee, well in my opinion we have two of those. We have Kyle Drabek and Jason Knapp. Knapp is putting up video game numbers in Single A Lakewood with over 12 K/9. I’d rather keep Drabek. I don’t know I probably sound desperate right now but I think the Phillies are as close to desperation mode as a first place team can get.
