This Team Sucks

*There are currently only 3 other teams in baseball that are further out of 1st place in their division than the Phillies.  The Phils are 9.5 games back of the Nationals, while the Cubs are 12.5 behind the Reds, with the Rockies 14.5 and Padres 18.5 back of the Dodgers.

*The Phillies are the worst team in baseball over the past 10 games, having won only 1 of those contests.

*The almighty pitching staff has a 4.00 ERA.  The Phils allowed 8+ runs seven times last season. Last night's crapfest marked the ninth time they've done it in 2012. What a difference a year makes.

*Chase Utley went 0-5 with 3 K's in the first game of his rehab assignment.  Fans in Clearwater reportedly booed him after his final at bat.  I wouldn't boo, but I also don't blame those who did.  This is two straight spring trainings of the same bullshit lies.  How can you play through the postseason then come back to begin a new season after a few months off and be in worse pain and be unable to play?  Doesn't make sense.

*You know things are bad when the team's mascot is being sued.  That damn Phanatic, I always thought he'd get charged with sexual harassment, but never assault.

*I don't mean to be mean, but how dumb is Hunter Pence in the outfield? 

*How's that BJ Rosenberg call-up working out?  Oh, it's not.  Who could have predicted that?  Me!!!  Savery was saved from demotion instead of Valdes and has pitched like poop since.  Amaro is an idiot and so am I for giving a shit.

Chase Utley has absolutely destroyed his reputation here. Before, I saw him a gritty, dedicated, and passionate leader of the team. Now he's a liar who refuses to accept reality in an ineffectual attempt to keep fan hopes up. I'm sure many fans feel the same way, and this is even more reason to try and trade him into the AL.

If they win 60% of thier games the rest of the way (means playing good) they will have 88 wins on season. Hmmm not highly likely to win 2nd WC spot at that.

Premiere of the new Dallas is on tonight. It's probably going to suck royally but can't be any worse than the Phillies suck right now.

Andrew said...

Agreed on all points... unfortunately.

A good read that agrees with C&C spot on

GM-Carson said...

M&M just misplayed a ball in the 3rd. He still sucks.

GM-Carson said...

Hey, looky there, another misplay by Martinez.

I can't stand him.

Andrew said...

Don't look now, but Thome is batting .308....

GM-Carson said...

Thome's homerun knocked a satellite off it's orbit. True story.

Ben said...

Pound for pound, this offence is ok. It's a shame it takes Cole Hamels starting to actually stand a chance of winning.

GM-Carson said...

The offense has actually outperformed expectations over the past month or so. April was bad, but they've gotten better since then.

The pitching has failed the, especially the bullpen.

Ben said...

This is like classic, 1930's, shitty Phillies when they played in the Baker Bowl.

AARON said...

The Phils deserved to lose again tonight....Many awful things happened in this game again, but one outshines them all.
Top of the 9th bases loaded no outs. 2-0 count on Polanco and he swings???????????? YOU LEARN IN LITTLE LEAGUE NOT TO SWING IN THAT SITUATION!!! NOT ONLY DOES HE SWING HE SWINGS AT BALL FUCKING THREE!!!! THEN PROCEEDS TO PULL THE BALL TO THIRD BASE ON THE GROUND. PREDICTABLY MAYBERRY K'S ON 3 PITCHES. THE PHILLIES HAVE BEEN PULLING STUPID SHIT LIKE POLLY'S AT BAT ALL YEAR......WHO IS COACHING THIS TEAM??? ANYONE??? I WOULD HAVE BENCHED POLANCO IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS AT BAT!!

AND AGAIN......AGAIN CHOOCH GETS THROWN OUT AT 3RD ON A GROUND BALL TO SHORT????!!!! HOW MANY FUCKING MORE TIMES ARE THEY GONNA DO THAT...........AGAIN THIS IS SOMETHING YOU LEARN IN LITTLE LEAGUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GM-Carson said...

I honestly don't recall in all my years of watching the Phillies them playing this bad of fundamental baseball. That goes back on the coaching staff and the players. Uncle Charlie's ahucka-hucka, friendly demeanor ain't cutting it anymore.

I support Dodgers all the way. Win or lose, I still love you guys. Do all your best in the name of baseball.

SirAlden said...

Front Runners.

Support your injured team you morons.

When I was a kid on the playground when kids would talk about their favorite team. The morons who knew nothing about baseball would always reach back and say whoever was last year's World Series Winner. Usually the Yankees.

If you treated your children the way you treat the Phillies, with hyper conditional love, they would grow up to shoot a lot of people at Virginia Tech.

No Halladay - No Howard - No Utley
No Grit from Lee - No Grit from Hamels

Those are the Top 5 Players on the Team. What else do you think would happen?

There is a big difference between agonizing over your team while loving them, and agonizing over your team and not hating them.

In Real Life you are just around the corner from be served with Divorce Papers from your wife and having your
wages garnished for 1 Saturday a week with your kids.

Go root for the front runner. J-Roll was right. You did not deserve the last 6 years of this team - if you act like this.

Ben said...

I don't mind it when my team losses a lot because the other team plays better. I do mind it when my team losses a lot because they are playing like shit and screwing up fundamentals. The Phillies, bar Ruiz, Hamels, Pappelbon, and to a somewhat lesser extent Pence and Worley, have look like Double-A baseball players this season. I will not except that.

Sir Alden-

Of who do you speak?
