There will be no more jubilation from this blogger until the Phillies prove they can continually play fundamentally sound baseball and win more than one game at a time (the roller coaster of emotions has derailed). Which means, I may not be happy this entire season. I'm an angry man right now, and I'm not even sure where to place the blame, as there's so much to be dispersed. I was going to work off of a percentage system where Charlie Manuel receives 35%, Gillick 27%, Nunez 15%, etc., but then I ended up exceeding 100% which isn't mathematically possible. Then I thought about who doesn't deserve any blame and the list is short- Pat Burrell, Jamie Moyer, and Cole Hamels are exempt. Hence, the remainder of the roster with the addition of the coaching staff and front office get all the blame...you bastards! Yes, that means the 2006 NL MVP Ryan Howard is being blamed, along with superman Chase Utley, supposed ace Brett Myers, hell even Ramon Hernandez. I've been holding back on my patented rants, but the beast is about to be released.
This season thus far can basically be summed up as a failure to launch. Philadelphia, we have a problem!
