Land Down Under
Phils come from a land down under,
Where runners score makes playoff wonder,
Can't ya hear, Can't ya hear Howard's thunder,
Pitchers better run, better take cover!
The Phillies certainly are coming from a "land down under" in their pursuit of the Wild Card. They continue to stay in the thick of it, but also continue to frustrate the hell out of me along the way...why ever would this change?!
Men at Work:
*Nunez- after peaking at .206, Abe has gone 0 for his last 15 to drop back down to .192, abysmal!
*Manuel- after doing some smart managerial moves in the Cubs series with the bullpen he totally blew last night! We now have two non-veterans (Matt "Generic Name" Smith and Thee Model Dictator) with far better ERA's than any of the "tried and proven". Although I beg to differ that White, Madson, Rhodes, and Fultz have "proven" to be much more than mediocre. I know conventional wisdom of baseball past says go with what you know, but it's time Fabio Castro get the chance more often!
*Corey&Carson- we are addicted to this blog. I'm starting to think this is my actual job. We're like comical geniuses up in here, much along the lines of Beavis and Butthead. Me being Beavis because of my excitability and after all I am the "Great Cornholio". Corey being Butthead, the name says it all, plus he holds asinine wisdom! BloodStripes, who is now an honorary member of WSBGM's can be Stewart (although we treat him better).
