In honor of the spookiest time of year (no not Grandma's bath date, Halloween idiot) I have compiled a terrifying list of tag teams that will make the bravest of men scream like Corey at a N'Sync concert. We all know the single most scary thing comes from the mouth of Charlie "sofa-king-we-tar-did" Manuel at a post-game press conference, but the list that follows runs a close 2nd to our bumbling moron of a manager, so don't be too frightened and proceed with caution.
Bell & Nunez- this is one devious duo that I want no part of. Just imagine if Gillick went and signed the "veteran winner, that does all the little things right" again to another disheartening 4 year contract and had him platoon with the hitless wonder. Bell is WSBGM's favorite targeted hiney-hopping-h-mo and Nuni is the worst excuse for a hitter (.211 avg./.577 OPS) since Jose Canseco tried to make his upteenth-million comeback...scary stuff! I'd rather have the ghost of Rick Schu manning the hot corner (wait, is he even dead?).
Floyd & Madson- who would like this to be the backend of the rotation in 2007? Not me! In fact I never want Gavin "Headcase" Floyd to pitch in a Phillies uniform again with that pitiful "deer caught in headlights" gaze. Madson is almost just as bad with his 5.69 ERA and 1.68 WHIP...disgusting! If these two were to be relied on in any capacity in 2007, we're looking at another long season. I'd prefer the spirit of Cory Lidle in the rotation instead.
Rhodes & Franklin- they are both free agents, but what if Gillick tossed them a line and got them on the hook for another treacherous season. Rhodes had a very haunting 5.32 ERA and 1.69 WHIP and Franklin had a knack for serving up the long ball in the most inopportune times. The day Ryan Franklin was signed Richie Ashburn rolled over in his grave, and the countless ugly displays of pitching by Rhodes made Tug McGraw want to return from the crypt and pitch in the Phils bullpen.
