I don't give a...

I don't give a rat's ass...

*if the headcase known as Gavin Floyd wins 5 Cy Youngs with the ChiSox.

*about Abe "No-Hit" Nunez's defense when his bat is less of a threat than the French army.

*that Charlie Manuel gets headaches from using big words like "the" and "it".

*how many times Burrell is caught looking at 3rd strikes as long as he hits homeruns, knocks in runners, has an OPS around .890, and shuts all his nay-sayers up.

*about silly little injuries such as infected hairs, jock itch, hemorrhoids, or split ends...suck it up!

*what the projections for each player are. The game is played on the field, not in a computer you silly pencil pushing statheads, go get "lucky" with your mouse.

*where David "H-Mo" Bell ends up playing in 2007, as long as he isn't with the Phils. The fact that he's still a free agent speaks volumes.

*how many walks J-Roll gets as long as he produces like he did last year (45 doubles, 25 homeruns, 127 runs, 83 rbi, 36 sb, and an OPS of .812).

*For old time sake- I don't give a hairy monkey's nipple, our Model Dictator, Fabio Castro should be in the Phils bullpen.

There isn't one thing I didn't like about what you said.

Me...I don't give a shit if a certain player "does all the little things right." You hear that wheels, you commie bastard.

GM-Carson said...

As much as I make fun of Chris Wheeler, I'm glad he's with the Phils...gives me something to make fun of.

chuckm said...

Wheels does serve a purpose. By the time the 6th inning ends, and you are so sick of hearing him that Harry coming back for the 7th gives us the "ahhhhh....yes, life is good" feeling of relief and reminds us on how lucky we have been to have him.

furiousBall said...

I agree with everything but the walks from J-Roll, well that is unless they drop him to 6th in the line-up.

BloodStripes said...

The hairy monkey's nipple returns.

Yes, Castro for the bullpen!

Geez Charlie is a dumbass. Your jokes about him are hardly jokes. You speak the truth my friend.

and whoa, oh.....I don't give a f...!

GM-Carson said...

Screw the return of the hairy monkey nipple...Bloodstripes returns! I was about to put out an A.P.B. on your ass...where you been?

chuckm said...

I know that we would all like to see Rollins have a higher ob%, but if one was to calculate the percentage of times a batter gets into scoring position unaided (single/walk + SB or extra base-hit) Rollins would probably rate very high. My only beef with J-Roll is that he has to show up at the plate sometime before summertime. When Rollins is rocking, the Phillies offense is humming and sub-.700 OPS every April and May is just not cutting it.

GM-Carson said...

ChuckM- I agree, I want an ENTIRE good season out of Rollins. He is partly at fault for the past 2 10-14 Aprils.

I usually hate old sayings, but this is one is so true- "you can't win a pennant in April, but you can lose one"...case in point, past 2 seasons.

BenJah said...

i agree with both furiousball and chuckm, and will combine their comments:

rollins needs to have a WHOLE season, from the 6 hole!

i really love the rat's ass picutre.....i need that on a tshirt or something

Los said...

I sincerely hope that Burrell proves me wrong ... I'm not banking on it, though. Unfortunately, Charlie will allow Burrell to continue to play, even if he becomes a detriment to the team (like he did for most of last season).

Carson, I have been doing a stack of extra work lately. Been getting home late trying to squeeze some time in with my children before they go to bed. A very busy few weeks. Its going to be a busy year but nothing will be like the few weeks I'm having now. Its all good though. Big bucks! Will help to pay off the house.

I have been reading each post. Just some days I have been to knackered to comment. So tired I'm lost for words. But the Phils are looking good. Bring on April and a J-Roll hit streak. Anticipation is growing for a good Phillies season.

GM-Carson said...

Bloodstripes- I see how it is, putting work and family before WSBGM's...what kind of person are you anyway? Just joking. I guess I'll find out all too well how having a child changes everything...I welcome those changes though, I want to be a dad so bad.

BloodStripes said...

Its a great feeling mate. The love for your children is awesome. Its also the feeling of responsibility you get. You gotta work and provide for not only yourself but for the family too. Right now I am just making the most of some very good opportunities. As well as my fulltime job of reading water meters I am helping people reduce there electricity usage by installing energy saving light bulbs and water saving showerheads in peoples homes and businesses, such as motels. Its all for the same company and its good work and top money. Good times bro.

Bringing home the bacon!
