Regroup

Did last night totally suck? Abso-f’n-lutely! Should we be scared of 9th inning save situations for the remainder of the season? Yep. However, yesterday’s loss was only 1 loss, even if it felt like a centuries worth of losses all balled up into one big shit sandwich. That’s right, only 1 loss, the 51st loss of the season; meaning the Phillies still have 72 wins and a 7 game lead in the NL East over both the Marlins and the Braves. It’s time to regroup, take care of business in Pittsburgh, and get back to winning ways and securing a NL East division championship for a third straight season.

Speaking of "regrouping” (I'm like T-Mac with annoying segues up in here), the same needs to be done by struggling southpaw Cole Hamels. The kid was very good last season and phenomenal in the postseason. He has the ability to be a top of the rotation pitcher. The Phillies need him to straighten himself out by the time the playoffs come around, or defending the World Series trophy may not be an option. A quality start tonight, coupled with a win will be a step in the right direction.

On a more exciting note, the Keystone Cup remains up for grabs with the Phillies leading the Pirates in the season series 3-1.

Can we sign this kid to be our closer...

...at least he knows when to throw in the towel.

The Mets are dropping like flies. First the announcement of Johan's season ending surgery, now word of Ollie Perez's. I wonder if I should feel bad?

Aaron said...

Can someone PLEASE PLEASE....teach Ryan Howard how to throw a baseball overhand!!!!!!!!!

The reason he can't throw a ball to second base is he throws side arm...............Am I the only person who see's this????

Why do the Phillies coaching staff not see that this is his problem???????????

Fuck.

As for Lidge ......no more chances......he's done. He's had more chances than he deserves. You can't fix him HE JUST SUCKS. HE CAN'T PITCH WITH A LEAD IN A TIE GAME OR IN A BLOWOUT HE JUST SUCKS. THE PHILLIES NEED TO STOP WORRYING ABOUT HIS FEELINGS AND HIS CONTRACT AND SIT HIS ASS DOWN AND MOVE FORWARD WITH ANYONE ELSE AS THEIR NEW CLOSER..............ANYONE IS BETTER THAN LIDGE.

Aaron said...

As for Mr. Hamels he doesn't need to turn his season around by October ......he needs to turn his season around NOW......as in tonight. He needs to not give up any runs and go at least 7 innings ......TONIGHT!!!

No more excuses for him ....get the sand out of your vagina and pitch like your capable of pitching.

Aaron said...

Darrell Ackerfelds sucks.

GM-Carson said...

I honestly wish we had a count for the number of times a Phils pitcher picked a runner off to only have Ryan Howard not seal the deal because of his inability to throw.

GM-Carson said...

This is unbelievable. They can't hit the f'n Pirates!

Men on 2nd and 3rd in the 9th with no out and they can't get a run in, bullshit!

Madson comes in and gives up a homerun to some nobody, bullshit.

Aaron said...

WHY THE FUCK CAN THIS TEAM NOT HIT A SAC FUCKING FLY.


FUCK YOU MADSON!!!!! YOUR SUCH A PUSSY.

HE'S A FUCKING MENTAL CASE TOO. HE CAN'T PITCH IN ANY INNING BUT THE 8TH.

Jeremy said...

Are you fucking serious!?! Men on third and second no out and we can't score, then Madsen gives up the lead, really are you fucking serious.

ripjgarcia said...

Hamels did his job and then.. here we go again. Except this time it is Lidge masquerading as Ryan Madson.

GM-Carson said...

Chan Ho should have been in there for the 9th. Madson has the same mental problems as Lidge.

Corey said...

shit.

GM-Carson said...

The fact that they're playing this poorly against the Pirates should not be taken lightly. They're seriously a horrible team.

Jeremy said...

Fuck this I'm going to bed.

GM-Carson said...

Why is it that most fans seem to know that Madson is destined to fail in the 9th, but his own manager doesn't?

Madson's demeanor is completely different from when he's setting up to when he's closing.

Aaron said...

They are going to lose this game in extras. There is noooo way they win this game.

GM-Carson said...

I can't believe I'm taking a long road trip to watch this circus tomorrow.

Aaron said...

FUCK FUCK FUCKADEE FUCK FUCK FUCK!!!!!!!!!!

I'M SO FUCKING PISSED OFF AT THIS TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!

GM-Carson said...

I'm actually getting back in my "Charlie Manuel is a R-Tard" phase. He's just managing stupid in my opinion.

Corey said...

all i want to do is reach through the television and grab t-mac and wheels by the throat and choke both of them. the stupid cliches and "company line" propaganda are extra irritating when they blow a ninth inning lead. yes, i know brad lidge worked four straight days and the manager still has confidence in him. yada yada yada. shut the fuck up!

Aaron said...

seriously we have already tried madson in the 9th before....it didn't work....remember cholly??

Corey said...

2 to 1 odds says we still don't score this inning...

GM-Carson said...

I hate T-Mac & Wheels. Wheels was tolerable when Harry was around, but no longer. The two of them drive me bonkers. Heaven forbid they tell it like it is, or actually have an opinion other than "everything will be okay, Phillies are the best" bullshit.

Aaron said...

1st and 3rd no outs......

If they don't score I'm going to break everything in my house and then burn this mother to the ground.

GM-Carson said...

I will personally walk up into the booth tomorrow night if Wheels says, "They just don't hit well at this ballpark" one more god forsaken time.

Corey said...

shit wheels has said in the last 15 minutes:

"they just don't hit well in this ballpark"
"he doesn't want to hit into a double play here"
"well, that was middle in...well, it was out a little bit"

Corey said...

ryan howard sucks.

Aaron said...

you have got to be fucking kidding me.......

Now howards gonna k and we won't score.

Aaron said...

or he might hit a bomb

GM-Carson said...

Thank Jeebus!

GM-Carson said...

Corey- I'm loving your reverse jinx on Howard. Can you try that with Lidge?

Corey said...

i'm happy about the homer, but i still want to punch wheels in the face...

GM-Carson said...

Corey- you just gave me a great idea for a promotion next year. A Chris Wheeler Stress Relief Punching Bag. Oh, the bloody knuckles we'd have from knocking the shit out of that.

Corey said...

it would be majestic if t-mac would STFU.

Aaron said...

I'm gonna punch Wheels in his tupe.

Aaron said...

WHY THE FUCK IS MADSON STILL PITCHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aaron said...

DID WE NOT LEARN ANYTHING FROM THE 9TH INNING?????

Aaron said...

OH LOOK MADSON GAVE UP ANOTHER GOD DAMN HIT....WHAT A SUPRISE

Aaron said...

That game was bullshit. I hate it when i'm pissed off after a win.

Aaron said...

Charlie Hudson sucks.

Dr. Steve said...

With the Phillies, you almost always are pissed after a win.

GM-Carson said...

Stupid closers.

Jay Ballz said...

Lot's of fun reading the recap of emotions of all u guys from last night. That 9th inning was so crushing that I couldn't enjoy the 10th inning.

btw, the quitter in the video sucks.
