The Phillies are currently losing the first game of their doubleheader with the Braves, I can't get the game on TV, so I thought I would throw some random thoughts out their as GameCast updates:
When Larry Bowa was here he was 29 games over .500 in 4 years. 3 of those years the Phils finished 86-76, a winning percentage of .531. Charlie Manuel's only full season as manager he went 88-74. The Phils missed the playoffs each of those year. This years wild card leader, San Diego, is winning at a .513 clip. It seems the Phils play just good enough to be in the chase, but never good enough REALLY be in the chase.
This, my friends, is what I would refer to as a "Rich Dubee"
"Blue Unis" took the Saturday Poll by a slim margin (16 to 14 ) over "White Guy Perms." "Porn Mustaches" (5) and "Jheri Curls" (3) were third and fourth respectively. In honor, here is a picture of Phillies great Sixto Lezcano in his best "dress blues."
Abe Nunez Update
Poor Abe is down to .193, which is exactly Randy Wolf's career batting average. This is beyond pathetic. Kevin Sefzcik thinks Abe Nunez sucks.
This was my original audio clip for game one:
