That Angry Empty Feeling
Why am I mad? Why am I feeling helplessly empty? The answer is blowin' in the wind. The Phricken Phillies Phlabergast me! The fact that The Headcase Known as Gavin Floyd is still in the rotation gets my blood boiling. The guy has just not pitched well in the MLB. In fact his ERA is near 7 for his career and +7 for this season with a WHIP around 2. How the hell do the Phillies plan to win with a knob-job like that on the mound?
I'm now going to get up on my soap box and pat myself on the back, or stab myself in the back. Back when the Phillies dropped those 2 1-run games to the Brewers back in mid-May following the infamous 13 out of 14 stretch, I said that these type of games kill the morale of a team and that it wouldn't bode well for the rest of the season. People shot my notion down as if I were a mongoloid. I've been saying for the past 1/2 month that this team is bad, and that they were only teasing fans there for a bit. Once again, I was labeled a downer and didn't know what the hell I was talking about. Well, guess what, even though this team is still above .500 for the time being, they suck. D-Train Willis is not going to make this team a playoff competitor, firing Manuel won't either...bottom line, they suck! I desperately wish I wasn't right of this occasion, but unfortunately I hit the nail on the head.
If you disagree with me, by all means form a rebuttal.
