Phucco Yeah!

That sneaky SOB Ruben Amaro Jr. swooped in on the recently released Josh Fogg last week in hopes of turning him into a Phucco and today he claimed Nelson Figueroa off the waiver wire. As you may recall, Figgy is already of the elite Phucco status having pitched for the Phils in 2001 and with the Buccos from 2003-2004. The Mets released him though, so what's that say about his value and the state of pitching depth in the Phillies system? In 7 MLB seasons he's posted a 13-28 record with an equally ugly 4.54 ERA and 1.46 WHIP. Whatever, give me a Phucco Yeah!!!

Cole Hamels looks to put a subpar 2009 behind and quickly establish his place as a top tier starter once again. He's opposed by groundball specialist Jason Marquis. Marquis by definition- a nobleman ranking next below a duke and above an earl or count. Basically he's better than Count Dracula and the Duke of Earl but King Cole could have him beheaded.

Let the unraveling begin. Hamels allows homerun, walks 2 guys, gives up 2 hits, tie game 2-2. He just doesn't look like he has it. Everytime adversity faces him he crumbles. I know this is only 3 innings of his 1st start of the 2010 season, but the guy instills no confidence.

Also, I'm sick and tired of people talking about how "unlucky" he was last season. BULLSHIT!
