The Wriz was thinking about surprising you with some bonus Phillies knowledge, but then Shane Victorino thought UFC 133 was in San Fran and he was the main event.
The Flyin Hawaiian and more specifically Ramon Ramirez, completely ruined my piece which was going to be about I find it odd why so many people are acting like the Giants are the worst thing since un-sliced bread. I know they beat the Phils to get to and ultimately win the World Series. Then, you have Lincecum who looks rather feminine and smokes dope. Wilson who makes Hulk Hogan’s shoe polish beard look cool and Cody Ross who decided to be Babe Ruth for 2 week in the playoffs last year. But for the most part, it just seems like sour grapes; Phillies fans just upset because the lawn chair they left on Broad Street to save their parade spot isn’t returnable to Target because some bum thought it was his own special port-a-john.
In these situations you’ll never get a straight story on why Ramirez hit Victorino. Maybe he was pissed he was getting hit around. Memo to MLP Pitchers: The Phillies are stacked. Get used to it. Maybe because the Giants thought the Phillies were running up the score. Yo dudes, if you think six runs is running up the score spend some money on a bat for the lineup. Maybe he’s mad Shane has his own UFC type shirt. C’mon Shane hangs with BJ Penn, UFC royalty. Don’t be jealous. Maybe he did it to fire up his struggling team. They lost 7 of 8 and are now only a half game up in the West. FYI, the west blows. Only the D-Backs have a winning record outside the division.
So what do the Phillies do in response? Nothing? Plunk Cody Ross? Continue to dominate them on their home turf? Well ideally, The Wriz would bring up the hardest throwing minor leaguer they have and start Scott Mathieson on Sunday. When Lincecum comes up to bat I bring in the flamethrower and have Brian Schneider (No need to risk Chooch getting suspended) call for an inside fastball. A REALLY inside fastball.
See ya near the ballpark at UFC 133!
