Baseball According to Chris Wheeler

According to Chris Wheeler preserving a lead in the 9th inning is difficult. In his words, "closing is tough." He continually blurts out this mindless garbage over and over again as Phils fans endure numerous blown saves by Brad Lidge and now Ryan Madson. If closing is so damn tricky, then please tell me how Jose Mesa has 321 career saves. Shut the f*ck up Wheels!

Phillies are now 1-7 during the homestand, and have lost 5 straight. There's no positive spin to put on things right now because this team is pathetic.

unbelievable. It would be one thing to just be a bad team and never get a lead or win. But the Phillies are a good team and they are handing these games away! What is Madson's problem? Durbin, Condrey, whoever. They're all giving up runs! Gregg F'in Zaun?? The guy is a joke backup catcher who's like 45 years old.

Going to the game tomorrow. Praying for something to be happy about.

Ryan Howard went from hospital to hero, and then Madson chokes the game away. The amount of losses chalked up to relief thus far is sickening. It's like no pitcher on the Phils staff can be trusted. Not Hamels, not Madson, not Lidge, nobody.

I CAN'T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I WAS SO PISSED OFF AT THIS TEAM.

I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT OUR "ACE" WILL COME UP SMALL TOMMOROW AND GET BOMBED BY PEOPLE LIKE GREG ZAUGN AND RODNEY DANGERFIELD ...THE STUPIDER THE NAME THEY FARTHER THE BALL GOES OUT OF THE PARK.

OH BY THE WAY SCOTT BORAS.....STILL WANNA COMPARE MADSON TO MARIANO RIVERA?????

When the team plays like this it is not entertaining, and I actually wish I had other summer interests to take my focus away from them.

I do like sweaters.

This team is in bad shape right now. Their closer (Lidge) is on the DL and wasn't trustworthy when active. Their #2 starter (Myers) is out for the year. Their ace has not pitched like an ace in all but 2 starts this season. Their interim closer looks like a deer caught in a tractor-trailer's headlights. Utley is struggling. Rollins has been a complete waste the entire season. Their bench has two players (Bruntlett and Bako) that don't belong on a MLB roster. Condrey has hit a wall. Durbin's early '08 magic is gone. Moyer is done. Lefty specialist (Eyre) is sidelined. MVP candidate (Ibanez) is on the DL.

You guys are so overcritical. I don't see many posts recently, I assume it's because you've all been busy trying to remove your foot from your mouths?
