Starting Pitching Craps the Bed


The Phillies starting pitchers have put a 2-spot on the scoreboard in the 1st inning of all 3 games so far this season. That's a very bad pattern to fall into. Brett Myers, Jamie Moyer, and Joe Blanton did nothing to help the Phils win. And if not for a wild Rick Ankielesque Braves bullpen meltdown the Phils would be staring at 0-3 in the face on the way to Colorado. Phillies starting pitchers: 0-2, 15 ip, 25 h, 15 r, 6 hr, 5 bb, 9.00 era, 2.00 whip.

Winning Pittsburgh:
Unbeknown to many of you, Corey and I have been catching a lot of flak for badmouthing the Pirates recently. We feel we're speaking the nonsugarcoated truth, yet apparently we're being overly critical. Well, I guess I'll give credit where credit is due, and credit is due to the Pirates who through a whopping 3 games have a winning record. Better celebrate your momentary success now Bucco fans, because I see it fleeting.

I am officially boycotting this blog until the Pirate talk stops.

One of the weirdest games ever happens and there is but one mention of it.

Sorry.. I'll check back in July.

WSBGM's always does things our own way. Sometimes we'll do game recaps, but we like to be creative. This isn't the newspaper, so we can say what we want. And deep down Garcia, you know you appreciate that.

Angels young pitcher Nick Adenhart, who won last night, was killed in a felony hit-and-run car crash this morning.

I was going to remark on the ever-growing list of Howards, but wow.

ripjgarcia you won't be missed. Fuck off and pull up your pants, your gaping vagina is showing. Anyway Phils pitching does need to improve and fast. Hamels next, that should help. Did you see Hazel Mae call Brad Lidge BRETT Lidge not once, not twice, but three times. She is the Douch of the Day.

I thought RIPJGarcia was joking about the boycott...

Chris said...

He probably was. I was just being a dick. I apologize.

Mr. A-Hole said...

Never apologize for being a dick, it's your God given right.

And quit your bitching about the starting pitching, they pulled out the win for Christ sake.

How dare you hate on the undefeated Phillie, Mr. Joe Blanton.

That guy, and his socks, are the greatest!!

Jay Ballz said...

Oh man- that Nick Adenhart must be changing game results from beyond...

GM-Carson said...

I thought he won, but my fantasy closer Brian Fuentes blew the game for Adenhart in the 9th, so he pitched 6 scoreless innings for nothing. None of that really matters now though. Can't believe he's dead.

I am a little nervous. With the rate people are performing? doing? The Howard, this list might become ginormous.

But I guess the bigger it is, the easier it will be to get Wheeler to say it. Which is now officially my goal.

Pirates got 1-hit yesterday.
