3 BAD BROTHERS YOU KNOW SO WELL
Another successful Phillies Bunts outing has passed and with World Cup type attendance it did not disappoint. Meet & Greet IV: The Search for Diamond Girl definitely lived up to its hype because she was nowhere to be found. Irregardless (not a real world) of an anemic ball club , surprise graduation parties & lack of Timmy ‘the leg’ cuisine: DB29, Wriz & myself entertained legions of ‘Buntamaniacs with cold beer& quick wit. Like Adrock crooned in Professor Booty, ‘I’d like to thank the people for just showing up.’ So with that I’d like to give a shout out to our old friends as well as our new compadres. Until we meet again at MGV….stay cool.
Now to the Phillies…
Dear Phillies: It’s tough to write weekly blogs, generate hype on our FB page and attract new ‘Buntamaniacs when all you do is suck!!! So start hitting the ball and win some games.
I’m going to make this short & sweet cuz it’s been beat like a comatose Mr. Ed. THE PHILLIES CAN’T HIT!!! That’s the main issue. If 5 out of the nine could put the ball in play then they could easily overcome weak pitching and a sketchy bullpen. Everyone says Ruben needs to go (agreed) and we should sell. Sell what? We only have 2 guys who could hit: Utley & Byrd; no one wants Howard’s contract and we only have 2 pitchers and one of them is hurt. So, sell Pap (DeFratus can close); Burnett, J*Roll (if he agrees) and Chooch (if anyone wants him), but only if you’re getting some offense in return. If you’re not getting bats in return then you might as well keep the team you have. Getting rid of Victorino, Pence, & Blanton hasn’t helped us put runs on the board. So don’t sell just to sell…it’s stupid. Moreover, I often wonder if we should have just paid Victorino & Werth and called it a day. Although Vic has been hurt they’re a much better option than Brown, Revere, Mayberry et al.
On a lighter note, Mike Schmidt got to meet me last weekend….lets get ‘bunted!!!
