From FoxSports.com- "Manuel also has liked outfielder Karim Garcia, saying he thinks he is a better player than former outfielder David Dellucci." That's it, it's official, our manager is a complete R-Tard! Since this blog began Corey and I have been making fun of Charlie Fuqua Manuel. It's no longer funny, it's real. The man is a full-blown dumbass. In what alternate universe is Karim "Canseco's Cousin" Garcia better than David "Dude, I'm getting a" Dell-ucci? Let's see how the numbers stack up- Garcia hasn't played MLB since '04 and owns a career on base % of .279, not exactly stellar. Dellucci has a solid career .797 OPS with a monster .899 coming just last season in Philly. Homeruns- 66 Garcia, 86 Dellucci. Runs/Rbi's- 180/212 Garcia, 360/328 Dellucci. Wow, Dellucci sure does suck compared to Karim Garcia, thanks for informing me Charlie, I don't know what I would do without your infinite wisdom constantly showering down upon me. Doesn't Karim look like Jose Canseco in this baseball card?
My Boys: Michael Jack Schmidt is the finest third baseman to ever play the game as far as I'm concerned and is my favorite Phillie of all-time. I grew up idolizing the man, but now I just wish he would shut the hell up. Schmidt has recently criticized Pat Burrell for striking out too much, as if 1,883 k's in Schmidt's 18 year career is a meager number...not quite. Schmidt was a tremendous talent back in his day, but the truth is today's sluggers strikeout more than players two decades ago. Do I wish Burrell made more contact? Yes. Do I get pissed when he watches third strikes whiz by with more regularity than a geezer gulping prune juice? Yes. However, this is a case of the pot calling the kettle black, or David Bell calling Lance Bass gay...same difference. Don't mistake my words though, I'm not trying to call Pat Burrell Mike Schmidt's equal, I just don't think it's cool for him to say that kind of stuff when he obviously didn't "choke up with 2 strikes" during his playing days.
