You gotta love...
...a firstbasemen making $20M with a sub .800 OPS that refuses to take a ball 4, who would rather swing and miss at balls out of the strike zone for the K. He swung at a ball that hit him in the ankle the other day. Yeah Ryan Howard!
...a secondbasemen with the "yips", that can't make a throw to any base without it being a minimum of 3-5 feet off target. Yeah Chase Utley!
...a starting pitcher that attempts to pick-off a runner on 1st base without a firstbaseman holding the runner on, that subsequently allows the runner from 2nd base to score and the runner that was on 1st base ends up on 3rd. Yeah Roy Oswalt!
...an offense that scores 3 or less runs with more regularity than a toddler drinking apple juice. Last night marked the 34th time this season the Phillies accomplished that feat. Yeah offense!
...a team that can't hit homeruns. The Phillies have yet to hit a homerun in June, despite the change in weather to the higher side of the thermometer which Charlie Manuel lovingly refers to as "hitting season". Yeah weaklings!
...a team that remains in 1st place despite all these inadequacies. Yeah Phillies!
Screw Michael Martinez!
