The retards over in Houston, Texas who make the decisions for the Astros thought it would be wise to hire ex-Phils GM Ed Wade. Wade did a lot wrong, but little right while in Philly. Ask any true Phillies fan what they think about Ed Wade and they'll probably just give you the finger and walk away. Corey had these kinds words to say about him in the past- "If anyone can give Joe Carter and losing a World Series a run, it's Ed "Mutha-Freakin" Wade. Every time I see a picture of this guy, I want to vomit. I don't know if it is because not since Gary Gaetti has a face looked so much like a scrotum or because of his complete inability to make a decent trade or free-agent signing for 7 years (except Jim Thome.) Either way, he's human ipecac." Enjoy the pain Houston, you've got nobody to blame but yourselves.
It baffles me how a MLB player can helplessly flail at an offering from the 44 year old arm of Jamie Moyer. His fastball is slower than a Johan Santana change-up for crying out loud! Nevertheless, Moyer finds a way to get hitters out because he's crafty.
Beastie Boys- She's Crafty
She's crafty - she's gets around.
She's crafty - she's always down.
She's crafty - she's got a gripe.
She's crafty - and she's just my type.
*With only 9 games remaining in the season, the Phils are doing their best to sneak into the playoffs. Thanks to the Marlins late inning heroics against the Mets, the Phils now are at 1.5 back in the East. Our state buddies the Pirates dropped a 4 game set against the Padres though as San Diego has now won 7 in a row and have a 2.5 game lead for the Wild Card.
*J.C. Romero has been an excellent addition to this bullpen, and I hope Patty G looks into resigning him.
*Kyle Lohse sucked for 2 innings, but the bullpen was good for 7. However, the offense is what won the game last night...thank you Jayson Werth!
