Thanks for that, but screw you.
I appreciate everything Aaron Rowand did for the Phillies. He brought grit and tenacity to the clubhouse, and put up some decent numbers while here only 2 seasons. "The Catch" is a story I'll be telling my son about in years to come. However, I bleed Phillies red and I could give less than two pinches of poop if he ever collects another hit in his career. All I know is that Gillick tried to re-sign Fence-Face to a shorter contract (believed to be 3 years) with substantial money involved where he could have been playing for a perennial contender, yet he decided to roam centerfield for known losers the San Francisco Giants. I don't blame the man for seeking security through a contract, but I don't have to be happy for him either or not be pissed when he puts up these stats through 5 games against my beloved Phightins: 8-19, 6 r, 1 dbl, 2 hr, and 2 rbi. So thanks for everything Rowand, but screw you!
From yesterday's comments-
GM-Carson: More on me being an A-Hole: I'm not happy for Aaron Rowand. I don't wish him well. And I'm sure as hell not happy he's lighting up our pitching staff. Put a fastball in his rib cage- won't hurt him because Moyer is pitching, but he'll get the message.
Lynniemac: Carson, I'll be an A-hole with you. I can't even look at Aaron Rowand anymore, and I'm tired of hearing him talk about how great a manager Charlie Manuel is and how much he liked playing for him and it's great to see all his friends, blah, blah, blah. Thanks for The Catch, Aaron. Now go cash your paycheck and shut the hell up.
Happy Mothers' Day!
