I love the Phillies, you love the Phillies, we all love the Phillies...but you know they have quirks about them that you hate too. I ran Volume 1 back in early November, and I'm now ready to air some more disgust...
*I hate that the Phillies have grey uniforms and white uniforms. Grey and white...wow you're really rocking my socks off with that. Where the hell is the pizazz? I want the powder blue jersey to make a comeback, the red warm-up jersey to become game worn, or that seldom thought of maroon jersey to become their interleague attire. If the Phils can make that ill-advised blue/red combo cap part of their "special" game garb, why not breakout the throwback every now and then?
*I hate that Gavin Floyd, Greg Golson, JD Drew, Adam Eaton, Reggie Taylor, Carlton Loewer, Wayne Gomes, Chad McConnell, Tyler Green, Jeff Jackson, Pat Combs, Brad Brink, Trey McCall, Pete Smith, John Russell, Johnny Abrego, and Lebo Powell have been 1st round draft picks of the Phillies since 1980...and we wonder why this club seems to stumble upon such dismal times. Don't get me wrong, there's been some success thrown in there- Chase Utley, Cole Hamels, Brett Myers, Mike Lieberthal, and Pat Burrell, but overall that is despicable.
