That's It, I'm Done

Eric Hurley? They can't hit Eric freakin' Hurley?!?!

That's it, I'm done talking about this team. No more about Brett Myers getting hit around. No more about Ryan "I want A-Rod money but hit like Dave Kingman" Howard and his battle with the Mendoza Line. No more DP Feliz, Gavin Eaton, or Uncle Cholly either. Like Muhammad Ali in a game of Jenga, I'm out, and off to blog about the WNBA. You can join my WNBA blog community here.

Farewell and good luck Phillies.

Sadly enough, the WNBA blog is more entertaining than the Phillies.

Bob D said...

No more Phils? Just because they go 4-11? Does that mean those who don't throw in the towel will have to go and find another Philly blog?

Kevin said...

See what you did, Eric Hurley? You ruined a perfectly good Phillies blog and made them go write about layups, jump shots, passes, and layups.

Anyway, I'm glad the Phils have today off. I need a mental vacation from them right now.

GreggyD said...

I need more than a day off. I have never liked the All Star break because it disrupts the normal flow of baseball in my life, but I can't wait for it. This team is f*cking awful and I'm sick of them.

GM-Carson said...

I can't wait for my vacation at the beach (same week as All-Star break).

Don't worry, WSBGM's will remain, we're just extremely disgusted right now.

furiousBall said...

well, at least you'll still be blogging about lesbians

GreggyD said...

Where are you off to for vacation, Carson? I'm going to be at shore that same week. I can't wait to escape the daily grind for seven days...

Maria said...

The Phillies are going to sweep the Braves. It'll all come full circle.

Gonzo said...

I remember the Phils started off last season 4 and 11. Granted, we're at June 30th right now. But the rest of the East played badly as well against the AL. I'm disgusted too. Let's keep our heads up guys and gals.

GM-Carson said...

GreggyD- I'm going to Fenwick Island Delaware, it's the last stop in Delaware before Ocean City Maryland.

Bob D said...

I am going to Fenwick Island, DE and give Carson an Atomic Wedgie if this blog does not go back to the Phils and away from the WNBA.

All teams slump, if they cannot regain thier earlier form and start winning then come October I will stop following them.

good to have a day the Phils cannot lose.

It was an ugly series for sure. I witnessed it first-hand. If anybody is interested, you can see pics and read my gripes at www.sheddingink.com/phillysportsblog/

GreggyD said...

Never been there, but most DE beaches are nice and they aren't as loaded with people like NJ. Although I'll be going to Wildwood anyway which is always jam packed. That's where I grew up going and it still has an appeal because of that. Should be a good trip.

But anyway, @ Bob: I don't even consider this a slump anymore. A slump can be defined as breaking away from the normal winning pattern. You know, dropping a game here and there, the hitting might not come together for a couple games. This has been an all out disaster. The hitting can't hit at all, the pitching isn't all that TERRIBLE, but Myers is and I suppose anyone that throws in the first inning. Nothing's going right for this team at all. I know you can't be considered to be in free fall when you're leading your division and it's the beginning of July, but this is absolutely awful. There really are not enough words to describe how I feel about this team.

Is it finally time to get the fire Charlie Manuel bandwagon going again? This man has been nothing but a disappointment!

I thought he was supposed to have a keen offensive eye to help out struggling players.

I thought he was supposed to have a loose clubhouse.

Newsflash: The offense sucks and the team is tighter than a virgin's daughter!

Stephanie Grace said...

I wonder when we'll hear about Myers. I'm hoping Manuel starts Durbin instead of skipping Brett's day and going with Hamels on Thursday.

"He's definitely kind of mentally spent right now," Manuel said.

For Kim's sake, I hope he keeps it together and doesn't, you know, punch her in the face.

GM-Carson said...

No official word, but I heard Brett and his wife has since split.

Charlie Manuel of course deserves some of this blame, how can he not?!

The Marlins are starting to falter too, but look out for those Mets, I still predict them to win the NL East.

GreggyD said...

I don't want Durbin in the rotation. I don't think it's a good idea to take the guy out of the role that he has excelled in. Just because he's good out of the bullpen doesn't mean he's a good starter. They need to leave that bullpen alone.

Frank said...

Odd. I used the same Dave Kingman reference today.

Don't quit blogging on the Phils. What am I gonna read when I get to work?

C.M.R. said...

maybe brett myers should start getting into s&m so he'll have something to take it out on that isn't our winning record

SirAlden said...

Nappy Nappy!

Bob D said...

Can we use the name Ryan Kingman?

Goes well with Gavin Eaton and Brett wife beater Myers.

Los said...

Hey, at least the Phils won't lose tonight ...

I went down to D.C. yesterday to take in a Nationals vs. Orioles game ... it was real hot ... the stadium was nice, but really nothing that set it apart from others.

GM-Carson said...

I wonder if a woman's size 16 is equivalent to a Shaq shoe? Corey, I want answers on this!
