Roger Ebert and Charlie Manuel Suck
Fabio Castro has gone for 10 1/3 innings, 3 hits and zero runs while with the Phillies. Yet he's only pitched in 6 games in 6 weeks. I haven't seen this much lunacy since that fat-ass popcorn eater Roger Ebert put "Joe Dirt" in his worst movies ever list. In his review he says "that the act of being buried in crap is not in and of itself funny." Sorry Roger, but it is. And it is this sort of thinking that keeps a 0.00 ERA on the bench, while Rick White strolls to the mound for his daily beating.
I'm proud of a few things in my life, but maybe none prouder than my place in Google Land. Last week I was excited to learn that by typing in "steve jeltz" then clicking "images", Carson and I are the third image listed. That's right, it goes, jheri curl, jheri curl, crackers. Granted, that can't be topped, but today I learned that when you type in "rheal cormier hemorrhoids" WSBGM's is the first link. Not to be outdone, we are also the first link if you search "abreu sucks" which you should do everyday. Drink a beer (or seven) to Jeltzy, Frenchy, his 'roids, Abreu's David Doster-like power, and our crappy blog.
Time For A Change
It's time for Scott Mathieson to change his role. I haven't given up on him. He not Gavin Floyd. But if the Phillies really want to compete for the Wild Card (I feel ridiculous saying that...) he's has get out of the rotation. Maybe put him in the bullpen, I think he had good enough stuff for less than three innings (the Ryan Madson similarities are scary.) Of course, Charlie Manuel is retarded, so he won't do that. Not to say the mental retardation is necessarily bad in baseball, Tom Henke had an all-star caliber career, but it seems Manuel's extra chromosomes aren't working for him. Take this as an example of when giving 110% is not a good thing...
