Last night's loss sucked all-around. Aside from Ryan Madson and Jayson Werth, everyone else was worthless. Please humor me as I rant for a bit...
*I hate the Marlins. I hate watching Dontrelle Willis dance around like a buffoon in the dugout while celebrating. I hate Miguel Cabrera because he's a real 3rd baseman and we don't have one. I hate that sawed-off twit Dan Uggla whom the Marlins practically got for free via the Rule 5 draft. I hate Reggie Abercrombie because he's missing Fitch. Most of all, I hate Scott Olsen for talking trash about the Phils and being the biggest knob-jockey in MLB.
*Why did Charles Fuqua Manuel intentionally walk Aaron Boone with 2 outs in the 6th with the score tied 3-3? Oh yeah, he's a RETARD! I hate it when managers give the free pass to batters that aren't all that good. I understand he was forcing the Marlins to pinch hit for Olsen, but I'd have rather had Olsen stay in the game as we were having some success against him. Oh, I almost forgot...Boone came around to score.
*Somebody please take Aaron Rowand back to high school and teach him a basic geometry lesson so that he doesn't keep taking the wrong angle to balls in the gap. His defense is vastly over-rated. Sure he's one of a handful of players that will run face-first into a fence, but the man misjudges balls to the left and right of him horribly...cost Cole Hamels the win last night.
*Contrary to popular belief, Cole Hamels in fact is not God. He wasn't even a king last night, more like a jester, as his 6th inning was a joke. I still love him, but that was a huge letdown yesterday.
*You Stink: Remember when Jimmy Rollins lead the league in homeruns with 9 and was batting over .300? Well, he's still stuck on 9 and is now batting .268 while going 2 for his last 19. Remember when Carlos Ruiz hit that walk-off homerun? Well, he's had only 1 hit since then, a span of 15 at bats. Remember when Wes Helms had that pinch hit rbi single to seal the win against Milwaukee? That was his last hit, as he has no hits in his last 9 at bats.
*Stat to keep track of- number of errors committed by our 3rd basemen in comparison to their homerun output. Season totals- Nunez and Helms each with 6 errors a piece while manning the hot corner and ZERO homers.
If you're looking for inspiration today, sorry.
