Support Your 2nd Place Team


Losing to a minor leaguer pitcher with an era of over 4 in Triple A, don't sweat it.

Ryan Howard slowing plummeting back down toward the Mendoza Line while his strikeout total reaches 159, he'll be fine.

Fearless clubhouse cheerleader Jimmy Rollins batting average down to .266, he's just waiting to turn it on when the games matter.

C'mon everybody, why so glum? I want you calling the radio stations, writing the newspapers, making huge signs to display with pride for our 2nd place team. Enough of all this negativity, they need our support. I know that's difficult after losing to the Padres 8-3, but the boos aren't helping, so it's time for change.

From Todd Zolecki-
The Phillies are hitting .198 (64 for 324) in their last 10 games, and .190 (37 for 195) in the first six games of this seven-game road trip through Los Angeles and San Diego. They have lost seven of their last 10 games to fall two games behind the New York Mets in the National League East. The Phillies still they think they will awaken from their nine-week slumber in time. But they better hurry up. There are just 39 games left in the season, meaning they have less than a quarter of their schedule remaining.

Nice t-shirt. I P (or "pee") Philadelphia. Piss poor pretty much sums it up.

This team used to be so loveable last season ... it's so easy to hate them this season. What happened?

GM-Carson said...

Hate? Nothing but love here!

Campaign Cheer is gaining momentum. Blog Crashburn Alley and Hugging Harry Reynolds have joined the party to help promote it. We'll all be at the game Tuesday night distributing fliers with the fundamentals of Campaign Cheer. Rumor has it we may get local media coverage too. Who knows, this dumbass idea of mine just might work.

I have jumped onboard with Campaign Cheer and have spread the word on Stanley Cup of Chowder.

Go Phillies!

We got a run! Yeah! It was because of an error! Yeah!

Bob D said...

Yeah! Hamels has the 4th best BA in the lineup tonight.

GM-Carson said...

A win would be nice tonight. The Mets won again and are on fire, so the Phils need the victory to keep pace.

Bob D said...

I did a double take on the Pads uniforms. But I think the camo is pretty awesome. Is that to support the troops?

The Phils should try a camo uniform.

Bob D said...

Hamels just singled, now he's the 3rd best hitter on the team.

Corey said...

funny you mention the camo as it is the inspiration for my blog post tomorrow. of course, it's how i think it is ugly as shit.

Nice blog!

Big win tonight. Offense still slumping, but Hamels looked good. Finally got a win. 2 GB. Go Phils!
