Let My People Go!
The Oppressors: Jon Lester, Justin Masterson, Ervin Santana, and Joe Saunders. This fearsome foursome has caused to Phils to go into a 4 game losing streak tailspin in which they scored only 7 runs, collected 20 hits for a .160 batting average, and struck out 32 times.
Today's competitor comes in the form of California born and raised surfer boy Jered Weaver. Like Moses proclaimed, "Let my people go!".
Brett Myers is struggling this season, struggling to be anything that resembles a quality pitcher. In fact, he's the antonym of quality, he's inferior. He's fallen to 3-9 on the season with a 5.51 era and 1.51 whip while surrendering a MLB leading 23 homeruns. I could go the route of suggesting I could hit a homerun off of this no-talent ass-clown, but I'm 6'3" 245, so that's within the realm of possibility. To completely insult Myers, I will instead suggest even Rafael Belliard would take Myers deep twice in the same ball game.
The Night Time is the Right Time:
As Phils Phans we put all of our hopes squarely on the shoulders of Cole Hamels to pitch us out of this rut. We need to be careful in over-wishing though as Cole's day/night splits are spooky- 4.84 era/1.40 whip during the day, 3.08/1.04 at night. This reminds me of the hilarious Joining the Cult skit by Adam Sandler...the night time is the right time!
