Believe in the Phillies- Loco en la Cabeza

*After Thursday's win, the Phillies finally had a winning record.  However, they promptly lost the last two nights to the lowly Brewers.  Once again, I feel the need to point out to people that "believe" in this team, that they are loco en la cabeza.  Milwaukee has one of the worst pitching staffs in all of baseball, yet the Phils offense make them look passable.  Domonic Brown is the only hitter worth a pinch of salt.  Brown is awesome, all others are not.

*Big Z has proclaimed himself to be MLB ready after his latest minor league outing.  In 3 minor league starts, Carlos Zambrano pitched 16.1 innings, allowing only 1 run for a 0.55 ERA and 1.04 WHIP.  Guess it's time for the experiment to move to Philly.  Tyler Cloyd would likely be the roster casualty.

*Erik Kratz injured his knee in the 9th inning on a ground out last night.  Carlos Ruiz is already on the DL, so that would mean the Phils would have to grab their 4th string catcher (Steve Lerud) from the minors should Kratz need to be disabled.  Bad situation might get worse.

*Because I'm a jerk and this is my blog- Ryan Howard stinks!!!

In response to Bob Brookover's column, I have a solution. Trade Utley to Baltimore. This is not because I've become an Oriole fan since arriving in Charm City. It makes sense. The Orioles are a young team on the rise loaded with young MLB ready talent in the minors. They need a veteran presence and an upgrade at DH. Utley can do exactly that and provide a contact hitting alternative to Mark Reynolds. Alternatively, both of their second sackers are struggling. The O's are gunning for a 2nd straight playoff spot and Utley would make a nice rental to carry them toward the finish line.

If Utley were to be dealt, the O's are the only team I would be cool with.

This series is proof that the Phillies suck and I am 100% sure they won't have a winning season.

I still say Cole Hamels was the difference between contention and not. Too late now.

Remind me again how Jeremy Horst lost that game the other night, yet Papelbon is in a 8-1 blowout.

Manuel is a dumbass. Hass been, and will continue to be. Yet remains employed by the Phils.

i'd say if anyone should be dealt to the O's, it's cliff lee. they need a good starter more than they need a good second baseman (that's assuming brian roberts comes back healthy in time, which he probably won't considering his track record)

of course, that'll never happen without having to give up half the farm, but still it could make sense.

ideal situation:

philly gets jake arrietta and/or zach britton
baltimore gets cliff lee

again, probably won't happen, but i can dream
