Phils Lose, USA Wins

The NL East is beginning to become a logjam, with the Mets, Marlins, and Braves all withing 4 games of the Phils. The Phillies craptacular play of late has been the reason for this, not because the other teams have played particularly well themselves. Ex-Phillie and forever stud, Pat Burrell, was the man for Tampa Bay last night sealing the deal early with a 2-run shot. In the rubber match tonight the Phightins send Antonio Bastardo to the mound with Andy Sonnanstine going for the Rays. Go Phils!

4 My Homie:
Corey is a huge football fan (round black/white checkered, not brown oblong), so this is for him. In case any of you missed it the USA soccer team beat the world's #1 ranked team Spain in the FIFA Confederations Cup match yesterday 2-0 and are advancing to the finals in Johannesburg on Sunday against the winner of the Brazil/South Africa semifinals match. USA! USA! USA!

i watched a tivo'd version of the soccer match last night instead of the phillies.

actually, i haven't watched a phillies game since the mets series in the second week of this month, which makes me a whole lot happier than everyone else who reads this blog...

the phillies (by accounts i read here) are so shitty right now, i might watch the nba draft tonight instead of the fightins. by next week, i may be blogging about the wnba again...

They should have left Bastardo in. Why take him out? They're in such a bad slump right now there's no reason to not get him innings.

Sixers Draft Soon.

I welcome the WNBA, because these sonsabitches suck! 4 runs in the 1st then go in shutdown mode. This team is on the verge of going in the shitter and not being able to recover.

Here's some people that should never touch a baseball field agian....Jack Trashner, Chad Durbin, Eric Bruntlett, Antonio Bastardo.

The Phillies are heartless. Their pussies and they suck. The only good thing that happened tonight is rollins got benched, and that's where he should stay permanently....he's done, stick a fork in him he just isn't a good hitter anymore and that is not going to change.

Paper Champions.

Aaron I share in your frustration, but Bastardo is still young with upside. Taschner and Bruntlett are trash though, so you're right there. Durbin is still serviceable, but only has the longman, because he just isn't very good like he was last season.
