Yesterday sucked! In fact yesterday was the worst game of the season. Corey used the PG rated euphemism of "crap" yesterday to describe Chase Utley's broken hand (broken fourth metacarpal bone in his right hand to be exact). Today I'm am going to use a R rated acronym- GDMFSOB...figure that out on your own.
Our favorite Phillie has hit the disabled list and is out 4-6 weeks. Believe it or not the Phils are still in the playoff hunt and losing MVP candidate, All-Star second baseman Chase Utley is a huge blow to this team's chances. At the time of his injury Chase was 2nd in the NL in batting average (.336), 2nd in runs scored (79), 1st in hits (134), 1st in doubles (41), 3rd in rbi (82), and 5th in OPS (.996)...suffice to say, we'll be missing his bat. Charlie Manuel's plan is to use No-Hit Nunez as a quick fix...more like fast disaster! Trade options include- Royals Mark Grudzielanek, D-Rays Ty Wigginton, D-Backs Orlando Hudson, and Buccos Jose Castillo. No offense to any of those players, but they can't even fill Utley's jockstrap.
From Phillies.com- Utley's spot on the 25-man roster could be taken by Myers, who Amaro said will be activated before Friday's game. The team will likely make two moves, replacing Utley with a hitter (likely Joe Thurston) and sending a pitcher out to make room for Myers (Clay Condrey or Michael Zagurski). *Please send down our mascot Fat Mike Zagurski, as he's been horrible lately.
Yesterday didn't only suck because of the injury sustained to clubhouse leader Chase Utley, no it sucked because the Phils failed to beat a crappy team and gain ground on the Mets and Braves. Why'd they lose? A retarded puppet that goes by the name of Charles Fuqua Manuel. He once again yanked a starting pitcher too soon (91 pitches by Gavin Eaton), burned through his bullpen and bench, and looked like a fat inbred hick while doing so. In case you can't tell...I hate him! *Here's a picture of boyhood pals Charlie and Dubee.
