Fat Lazy Dog

Phillies fans around the globe were disgusted by Rod Barajas cowardly play last night that nearly cost them the game. You know the one where the ball got there a full 18 seconds before the runner, yet the runner managed to slide under the tag. Charlie Manuel being the "players' manager" he is, decides to give Rod the start behind the plate tonight to try and redeem himself. Well, we all know Charlie is half-wit, so needless to say this didn't work out. As I type, the Phils are losing 4-3 with that extra Marlins run coming from a dropped ball on a play at the plate. This time Chris Coste threw a perfect throw home to nail the runner, but that lazy fat-ass-piece-of-sh*t Barajas nonchalantly reached back with only his glove hand to tag the runner and then as the ump was about to call the guy out the ball slowly trickles from his mitt. For those of you that are on a Manuel math level, that's retard by the way, that's 2 horribly pathetic plays in 2 nights. I'm appalled, I'm sickened, I'm revolted. Yesterday I wanted him released, tonight I want to kick him in the balls.

Apparently it's a rule in Philly to hire retarded coaches. Steve Smith has once again gotten a man thrown out at the plate by a half mile. Is it really that hard to compile a MLB coaching staff? I see coaches on other teams seemingly doing a good job, why can't we find some of them? Why the dee-dee-dee's?

GM-Carson said...

Great quote from a BeerLeaguer- "I'm beginning to worry that every Phillies' game I watch knocks a point of two off my IQ. I can feel the stupid radiating from the TV and zapping my brain cells. At this rate, I'll soon be qualified to work as a Phillies coach or scout, or maybe even manage. Good thing, because I won't be able to find employment anywhere else."

Remember that day back last fall when the Flyers fired both Bobby Clarke and his dumbass manager Ken Hitchcock? That just so happened to be on my do we have any other bdays coming up soon??

Seriously, just cut Barajas when Howard comes back tomorrow. Coste and Ruiz can handle the staff, and oh yeah BLOCK THE PLATE at the same time!!! Argh!!

GM-Carson said...

I don't see anyone laughing Rod, nobody is f**kin' laughing!

Chris Coste can hit, plain and simple. He's adequate enough behind the plate to be the backup. This club has no use for Barajas and his pussy-footing ways.

groooaaannn... i just can't take this team anymore.. its not even the losses, its just the embarrassing play. bad relief pitching, bad defense by certain players, bad offense by those same players. but as long as their marketable, wins come 2nd.

GM-Carson said...

The Phillies style of playing is tiring. Yet we stick with the man essentially in charge of getting the most out of his players and "teaching" them the finer skills. Hell, Manuel's team play as dumb as he is. Mental errors happen, but all the time is inexcusable. Failure to drive in runners on 3rd with less than 2 outs...pathetic. This team sucks, really they do. They just fool us with wins sometimes.

If we break down the sound of this oh-so-important word, boys and girls, we see first "fun". I know we Phillies fans haven't experienced this in a very long time, but fans of other teams (LOTS of other teams) tell me it's a feeling of joy that comes with success. Next is "Duh". We can all say it togehter with Chalie, as he sits dumbfounded in the dugout. "Freak'n" is an optional part of the word, and I have come to use it alot, as in "Freak'n A - this collection of misfits SUCKS!!". The final part, "mental", has two meanings. First - 50% mental is, as Yogi tells us, 90% of the game of baseball (you do the math). Second, it the first part of the term used to describe our management, front office, and coaching staff. The second part of that term would be...



Now back to your regularly scheduled rants.

Phed-up said...

Honestly, I can't remember a collection of professional athletes that were so fundamentally poor in so many areas of the game. Baserunning, fielding, situational hitting. It's easy to place blame on management, and they are primarily responsible for this mess, but when a normally sound player, like an Utley, makes thoughtless plays, it really makes you wonder if stupid is contagious.

By the way - what happened to the so-called leadership on this team. I would think a real leader would have pulled Bwah-has aside and lit into him (same with Dobbs, but he isn't playing with the so-called credentials the catcher is). Instead, the clubhouse laughs off the stupidity all because they got a win (Yipee!). If Lopes is such a great baserunning coach, would he be more valuable at 3B, rather than 1B? Does he shout "go" when a player on first is about to steal? I doubt it.

GM-Carson said...

No, Lopes yells the all-important "back" when a pickoff move happens. What would we ever do without that?

Dumb has worn off on the announcers as I watched now 2 days ago it took Larry Anderson 2 minutes to explain to his compadres that the ump called the guy safe. I thought they were going to star of the game in a minute despite the score still tied

GM-Carson said...

DUMB is the best way to describe everything about the Phillies as an organization. The management is dumb, scouting dumb, owners dumb, players dumb...well, the fans are smart though, especially the ones at WSBGM's.

Phed-up said...

Here's a thoughtful question for the masses here. Would we rather see this team slip directly to the cellar, remaining there as a bottom-dweller all season, leading to sell-offs come the trade deadline, or is it better to have this half-baked team of half-wits struggle to be competitive all season long, only to brain-lock themselves out of contention at the last possible moment?


Understanding, of course, that "in the end, it doesn't even matter" (to quote Linkin Park).

GM-Carson said...

I don't want to be cellar dwellers ever again. With players like Hamels, Myers, Howard, Rollins, and Utley this team should never truly be out of contention or be uncompetitive. Then again our fearless leader is Charles Fuqua Manuel which in Native American translates into One Who Speaks Like Retard.

Did you know "Barajas" is actually spanish for "fat fucking pussy?" That's a true fact.
