Joe Blanton is Bad at Pitching

On May 3rd Joe Blanton crafted a 3-hit shutout against the Braves and his ERA was at a remarkable 2.83, allowing only 1 homerun all season. Less than a month later...boom! After tonight's 5 innings of failure, Heavy B's ERA sits at 5.05 for the year. Over the past 5 starts he's allowed 24 earned runs, 9 homeruns, 39 hits, and 7 walks in 27.1 innings for a 7.90 ERA and 1.68 WHIP.

It's a good think we have a healthy Cy Young candidate in Roy Halladay. Oh, wait...

Well, at least we have a healthy Vance Worley proving that he will not fall into a sophomore slump. Dammit...

 Don't worry about the pitching, Chase Utley and Ryan Howard are fully mended and ready to lift the offense to new heights. What? They haven't even started their rehab assignments yet? This is bullshit!

Never mind, this season sucks!

On this date 2 years ago Roy Halladay pitched his perfect game. Fast forward 2 years- out for 2 months.

these great cynical gm's get off the bus and don't come back if the phils put something together! sure i think with my heart than my head but it makes life much more pleasant!! join the nationals or marlins bandwagon you frontrunners!! nothing comes early and i hope that thru these difficult times we can rise to the top of the division!; the end of this five year successful division winning team is coming to an end, but i am NOT abandoning ship like so many! the phillies front office seems a little shady pertaining to the exact issues with chase and ryan, but when was the last time you had a perfect organization especially when they are going thru difficult times? peace gentleman, a loyal phightin's fan thru the good times and the bad times! i all i want is effort, you dog it and then venom comes from my mind! more peace!!

Take a loot at the 2006 to 2012 Philadelphia Phillies. Think about the highs and lows. The story of the past seven seasons is why Pat Gillick is in the Hall of Fame. Had he not retired, the sky would have been the limit. Instead, RAJ took over and the Phillies have slowly fadded, largely becuase of his poor, non-SABR GMing. The 2010's decade belongs to Washington, Atlanta, and Florida. I anticipate many 5th place finishes for the Phillies.

I love how I'm a frontrunner when I complain about my team. Doesn't that show I care? Been blogging since 2006, and if you think I'm going to sit back and just look on the sunny side of things because they're my favorite team, then I'm not much of a fan than am I? I'd just be another mindless drone with blind faith and optimism.

I like to be realistic, not live in fantasy land.

I saw some guy in the dugout, maybe you guys could help me figure out who he was. He was a younger guy, it looked like still at playing age. I guess close to 35. He had really prominent blue eyes.

He didn't look like he was talking to anyone; the coaches usually talk to people while they're in the dugout, right? Just sitting around waiting for something. Too old for a ball boy, too young for a coach, and if he was a player, I'd have seen him play by now.

Did they bring up some older guy from the minors to replace Halladay? I'm stumped. Do you guys know who this is?

Buzz Campell--Sanctimonious twerp. WSBGMs isn't always right or the best but no denying the passion.

Buzz Campbell...I dont even know what over 5/6's of that post means...I'm ashamed to say I am a Phillies fan if you are- based solely on the fact that you cannot construct a complete sentence.

I am a 23 yr old nursing student from the Poconos and have been reading this blog for the past 2 years.

This being my first comment...I guess I should finish by saying...Keep bloggin' GMs!!! :D
