the straw that broke the hamels back

26 08 2007

a more appropriate title for this weekend would be the hamels that broke the phillies back, but prystline and i have made a promise that we (unlike a lot of the other philblogs out there) will always keep this blog in positive town about the phil-bags.  so this entry will highlight only the positive parts of the weekend.  either way, we are only 6 games out of the nl east and 3 out of the wildcard and with the pads facing ‘zona and us with 4 against the mets, i am betting that we will be 4 out of the east and 1 out of the wildcard by thursday!!!

*note* i had written a long entry about the highlights of the weekend, but wordpress decided to delete it for no reason, so this is the coles(hamels) notes version:

1. i was away all weekend with no access to tv or internet, thanks to fellow sexy criminal prystline for the text message and phone call updates

2. i hate the giles brothers… they are creeps.  end of story.

3. where will burrell go in the lineup when chase gets back?  i like leaving him in the 3 hole with chase batting 2 depending on who is playing left and 3rd.

4. i wish i could be at CBP tomorrow for chase’s re-introduction… have to settle for sneaking out of work a little early and trying to catch it on satellite

5. our bench is going to be unreal when everyone gets back.  dobbs, helms, nunez, branyon, coste, bourn, iguchi, werth… pretty much covers everything we could need.

6. our girl clare from the ladies and plunk chutley has a theory on cole hamels trip to the DL.  i think cole is waaaay to cocky to let that happen, we are talking about someone who, as a rookie no less, thought that albert pujols should be more afraid of facing him than vice-versa if he has “his stuff”

7. what exactly was going through sam carchidi’s head???

‘When Myers was asked about the two home runs, he said they were really “just pop ups.” A reporter from the Philadelphia Inquirer questioned whether Myers really thought they were pop ups, and Myers got angry. “You’re not even a beat reporter, you’re a fill-in, you don’t know anything about baseball,” said Myers, who then called the reporter “retarded.” The Inquirer reporter asked if Myers could spell retarded, and Myers stood up. Burrell then restrained Myers, and Myers refused to speak any further.’

i mean we are talking about a guy who punches the love of his life in face outside of a ballpark, you think he is going to even give a second thought to beating the hell out of this b-list reporter trying to make a name for himself??? i am a little upset with the bat’s role in this though… i would have expected him to do something a little more classy like coming in with a cheapshot from the side or smashing a beer bottle over his head.

i am sure she would prefer not to be hit therei am sure she would prefer not to be hit there

 this is poor parenting… he could have used the word glove just as easily!!!

Cole’s such a competitor, I think he’d pitch until his arm fell off. I don’t think his trip to the DL was his idea; I think this decision came down from the front office. I also think he lacks the guile to come up with so crafty a plan.
