I'm trying to turn over a new leaf and stay positive in regards to the Phillies. That's proving to be a difficult endeavor. I'd love nothing more than to go off on one of my patented rants and rip everyone from Charlie Manuel's gut, to Cole Hamels' vagina-arm, to the headlights that scared the crap outta Ryan Madson, but I'll refrain. My mother always told me if I had nothing nice to say, then I should say nothing at all. Well, here's what I have to say about the Phils...
I'm Getting A Chubby:
Not only have the Phils added a chubby pitcher in Joe Blanton, they've now added the stocky Matt Stairs. He's known as a professional hitter, meaning he can't field a lick. He's 40 years old and is still under contract for $1 million next season. He's an upgrade to the bench, but I can't see him making that much of a difference. That doesn't mean I'm not happy to seem him come aboard, because I am. The dude is Canadian and that's all I need. Career line- 733 r, 1308 h, 282 dbl, 252 hr, 859 rbi, .266 avg, .840 OPS.
