Saturday Poll

Wow, talk about stunning. First, the tragic accident in New York. Now, Bobby Scales is traded away to Baltimore for "future considerations." As a co-founding member of the Bobby Scales Fan Club, I'm in a state of shock and disbelief. And now to think, bad things usually happen in 3's. What is next...? Well, here it is...longtime Red Barons pitcher Seung-Hak Lee has been released by the Phillies. As if the Asian Phillies weren't bad enough, now Lee is gone. Back to Korea, where I hope he signs with my favorite Korean team, the Hyundai Unicorns. Man, the Asian Phillies are going to suck this year...

Back to "future considerations." What could this possibly be? Well, I've scoured the internet furiously for any sort of rumor as to the nature of these considerations. Here is what I've found so far, there are 4 possibilities:

1) 4 bushels of blue crabs - these little suckers are tasty. But for some reason...could be the fact that Philly isn't on a bay and the only crabs in the Delaware River taste like sewage...you can't get a good blue crab in town without maxing out your Visa. Also, little known fact, Charlie Manuel loves any food he can use a hammer to eat.

2) free tickets to the Babe Ruth Museum - since the Steve Jeltz museum is still under construction, the Phillies front office needs some giveaways to the season ticket holders.

3) autographed Spiro Agnew baseball - famous Baltimorian and former vice president Spiro "Sneaky Greeky" Agnew will do anything to help his beloved O-rioles.

4) 4 weeks of the Baltimore Oriole mascot - the team has said the Phanatic needs a vacation for "personal reasons." The truth: Phanatic has a drinking problem. Rumors are, Phanatic got sauced up on Jose Cuervo and went "Brett Myers" on Mrs. Phanatic. With the Oriole in town for a month to start the year, Phanatic can get some rehab.

So, of the rumored possibilities, which "consideration" would you rather see come our way from the good people in the Charm City?
Best Future Consideration From O's?
Crabs
Museum Tix
Agnew ball
Oriole Mascot rental


Go Penn State!

Wow, those are some excellent options we have to choose from. I voted the Baltimore O's mascot, because I feel for the Phanactic and problem with the bottle. Sprio Agnew ball was a close second, because anyone linked to "Tricky Dick" is cool in my book. The Babe Ruth museum is a cool place to visit, I was there not too long ago. No way I'd vote for crabs, as I'm sure Pat Burrell can spread them through the team if he wanted to.

Farewell Bobby Scales, we knew you were our All-Star 3rd baseman in waiting, but apparently Gillick didn't.

Lidle's unfortunate death brought many viewers to our page. On Wednesday (date of accident) we had 932 hits, then peaked at 1,243 on Thursday, and still managed 501 on Friday. That's a total of 2,676 hits in 3 days...wow! Today things are getting back to normal, where as we have about 50 so far today.

Crabs...definitely. But it has to be the finest crabs they can get?

Isn't it great to see Billy Wagner fail?

BloodStripes said...

Crabs, only because they are tasty.

Billy blew game 2 in a big way. I gotta say it was enjoyable.

Go Tigers!

Maria said...

Go Tigers...but not Tom Jones.

BloodStripes said...

Line drive home run Ordonez. Wooo hooo!!! Good come-back. Smoked the 1st pitch!

Maria said...

I love watching the Mets fall apart!

Maria said...

Detroit is gonna sweep the Cardinals in the WS!

GM-Carson said...

Billy Wagner runs his mouth about his former teams all the time. He bad mouthed Houston when he go here, and he bad mouthed Philly when he went to New York. Now those New Yorkers aren't so happy with Billy-boy and are letting him hear it...BOO!!!!

BloodStripes said...

Ordonez killed it again in the 9th. What a game. I put $10 on the Tigers in july to win the world series. 4 more wins and its pay day. Not a big pay day but maybe I will be right. Just to keep my allegiances in check, I also put $10 on the Phillies. They are the only bets I've had in a decade. A bit of fun.

BloodStripes said...

Always best to keep your mouth shut as a player. Say good things or shutup. Let Billy have it. Never bad mouth the PHILS!!!

GM-Carson said...

I predicted a A's vs. Dodgers World Series...wrong!

Corey predicted an all NY World Series, at least the worst half is eliminated.

Playoff baseball is great and all, but since the Phils aren't in it, I'm ready for it to be over. I'm ready for the real business of the offseason to begin. Bloody hell, C'mon Pat Gillick!

Why the O's mascot. Couldn't we just pick out some abscure mascot from a defunked minor league team? Maybe there is one from the midwest that carries a pitch fork or something sharp. That could be very helpful during a game or an arguement with an umpire.

GM-Carson said...

I like the Baltimore Oriole, he could at least fly the coop when he becomes thoroughly disgusted by the Phillies play. All the Phanactic has is that friggin 4-wheeler!

Maria said...

Well at least the Phanatic goes streaking. He's a pretty sexy bitch.
