Panic! at the Disco suck and so do the Phillies; it's time for a Panic! at the Brick Cit House. To get shut down by quality starting pitchers like John Maine, Johan and Ervin Santana, Rich Harden, and Jon Lester is understandable. However, when the offense is sputtering against the likes of Joel Pineiro, Joe Blanton, Andrew Miller, Eric Hurley, and Oliver Perez something is just wrong. What's wrong? Almost every-f'n-thing!
Tonight youngster JA Happ gets his second start of the season against Cards' mending lefty Mark Mulder. Mulder should get lit up worse than your uncle at a family function, but the Phils will probably give him a "feel good start" in which he builds a fine second half of the season on. Dammit this team is so lousy, I can't even pretend to have any optimism. They need to get back to having fun, playing with a swagger and a smile. Baseball is a game, it's supposed to be fun. I know it's their job, but they can have fun too.
Last week prior to the Braves sweep Corey nearly gave up on the Phils and I too began to venture out on to other sports avenues. I have a feeling if the Phils lose their 5th straight tonight that Corey may be back to following the WNBA and I may be bringing to you the wonderful world of Badminton, which means I will be using the word shuttlecock freely.
