GM-Carson: For the Phillies no runs on 2 hits. That's all we got is 2 god damn hits?
GM-Corey: You can't say god damn on blogspot.
GM-Carson: Don't worry, nobody is reading anyway.
Is anyone else growing tiresome of watching Ryan Howard striking out in big situations or to end a game?
Cliff Lee's 3.69 isn't anything special, and quite honestly needs to improve. His 16 K's last night were awesome and 60 this season are very impressive. However, the Phillies have only scored 1 run for him over his past 3 starts. Pathetic.
David Herndon made his minor league debut for the Phillies and did exactly what should be expected- 2 IP, 5 H, 2 R. Bad.
Roy Oswalt hits the DL and the Phils decide to call up a struggling Triple-A reliever, Scott Mathieson. In 9 games this seasons he has a 4.61 ERA and 1.76 WHIP with 10 walks. Oh, he also has a 7.62 ERA in 11 MLB games. This is the answer?
While Domonic Brown wastes his talents in the minors (9 G, .371/1.122, 9 R, 8 RBI, 3 HR), Michael Martinez continues to earn a MLB paycheck for sucking (.167/.417). I hate that he is on this team. Screw versatility. If the Phils want versatility, buy a Leatherman.
Have faith my friends, Kyle Kendrick starts today. Wait, what?
Before you go telling me the Phillies are tied for the best record in baseball or that it was only one game...don't bother. This wouldn't be WSBGMs if we weren't bitching about something and despite that record, there are plenty negatives to focus on right now. Never be complacent. Complacency leads to future failure. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, does not apply to baseball unless everything is in perfect working order, because there's always someone aiming to take king's throne.
One more thing- Baez Sucks.
