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.
