Brett Myers' last 2 starts in the Hunt for October: 8.1 innings, 19 hits, 4 walks, 16 runs (14 earned), 0-2 record, 15.12 era. Thanks a-freakin-lot you mental pansy! Myers wants to be a so-called "rockstar", but I've got news for you Brett, ain't nobody coming to see your ass on tour when you're singing that shitty tune. His horrific outing against the Marlins was excusable because he had been so good prior to that. However, 2 abysmal outings in a row leads me to believe that the craptacular Brett Myers has returned just in time to screw over the team for the playoffs. I don't have the patience nor the positive mental attitude to try and spin the Phils' current state of affairs in a soft white light. No, I'm pissed because they're pissing away a golden opportunity. Not all is lost, but it could be if they continue losing.
*Ryan Howard did what he does best- went yard (#47), struck out (#196), and made a costly error (#18).
*Chris Coste is a good guy, but his September is one to forget, batting just .125 (3-24); that's uglier than Jorge Cantu's minefield. In case you haven't noticed, and obviously I have, Coste is taking a backseat to Carlos Ruiz and may be on his way out of town following the season.
*Every time Charlie Manuel suggests Jayson Werth is worthy of a full-time gig, he begins struggling and striking out a buttload. His swing and misses are more disgusting than the video you found in your parents' room labeled "private".
*Much needed off day today. Phils need to regroup and gear up for the Nationals series. No rest for a Phils Phan though, as it's- Root, root, root for the Cubbies. If they don't win it's a shame. For it's 1, 2 games out for the Mets if the Cubs win the game. Rich Harden vs. Pedro Martinez tonight...who's your daddy?
