Shit That has happened since I Last Posted




Well well well…..it has been quite a while since I have had the motivation to write anything in this space and I really don’t have any excuses except that I am lazy as a sloth.  Just to bring you up to speed here are a few of the highlights/lowlights in my life since my last post on March 13th 2012.

Chase Utley and Ryan Howard missed half a season

Cole Hamels Made a lot of money

Phillies Preview: The Lineup

Good to see you too Chuck

Well it is that time of year again.  The snow is melting, the birds are chirping, Spring is in the air.  The crack of the bat and the snap of the glove legitimately arouses me.  I literally found myself watching a Mets/Nationals spring training game on TV the other night (I was also drinking).  Baseball season means a lot to the scribes on this particular website and we are going to do our damnedest to give you the most accurate preview of the two main squads (Yanks & Phillies) we will be complaining about.  We may even let Joe write something about the Marlins (doubtful).  So without further ado, here is our Phillies Lineup Preview.

Drinkin, Smokin, Straight West Coastin


" Ferrari, Jaguar, Switchin 4 lanes, Top Down Screamin out, Money aint a thang"

Now I may be in the minority here, but I love west coast games.  Your at the bar, having a couple of cocktails, dominating trivia per usual, then you realize around 10 local that the hottest squad in baseball is on with their mythical unicorn Cliff Lee on the hill.  Not only that, they are playing the defending chumps champs.  The Phils came in hot, winners of 6 in a row romp-a-domping both the Butt Pirates and the Cockies in consecutive series.  Cliff has had a couple rough outings since he perfected pitching in June.  He decided that he liked pitching well again so he threw on Jermaine Dupri and Jay- Z’s “Money aint a thang”(I don’t know why,  I just always picture Cliff bumpin to this in his Ford F-750 SuperDupercab pre-game…I know…I have issues) in the locker room and went out and spun another complete game shutout.  Cody Ross? Go fuck yourself, golden sombrero, go ask Sandoval to get you one.  Madison Bumgarner?  Hunter and Big John basically just tried to one up each other by depositing that weak shit fastball of yours 30 rows deep. Orlando Cabrera?  Jesus Christ have you played for every team in the league?  No matter, Cliff don’t play favorites, he’s an equal opportunity dominatrix.  Whats on tap for tonight?  Vanimal vs. Sanchez.  Get some.

Daily Drive 8/3/2011

The Daily Drive is a daily (duh) post of all the prominent things going on in the sports world we didn’t cover, and anything else we might want to share with you.  Like what my prediction for the Eagles is this year……..19-0

-AHHH the glory!  A-Rod apparently got wrapped up in that super rich guy group of dudes that like to play Poker together.  My hope is that A-rod ultimately gets a life-time ban.  If Pete Rose can’t bet on the ponies, A-Roid can play Texas Hold Em with Jason Bourne and Spiderman!

-Osi Umenyiora was just told by the NY football Giants that he is no longer allowed to seek a trade.  Jesus a man hasn’t been jerked around like this since Larry Craig was hangin out in Minneapolis Airport. HIIIYOOO!

-Casey Anthony was spotted walking around downtown Columbus rockin a Ohio State hat.  No word on if she tried to get a free tattoo for “taking care” of some things for the artist.

Boom goes the Dynamite

Nnamdi Asoughakhkalhkjahs...uhhh were gonna need to come up with a nickname

Well obviously Andy and Howie read my scathing review of their off season plan and decided to make a couple big splashes.  Babin, Rodgers-Cromartie, Cullen, and Nnamdi are now members of one of the top, if not THE top team in the league.  Might be a little early to say that but I don’t give a shit.  The Birds just put the league on notice and they are apparently going “all-in”  this year (side note….shouldn’t you go all in every year?).  I don’t know what it is, but players just seem to want to play with Mike Vick.  Maybe they are all still amazed at his potential, or they love to use him in Madden   His 99 rating is unprecedented.  Either way, I don’t give a rats ass as long as they suit up in the midnight green.

The Daily Drive – 7/29/2011

The Daily Drive is a daily (duh) post of all the prominent things going on in the sports world we didn’t cover, and anything else we might want to share with you. Just got turned onto turntable.fm, and “SNL in the 90’s” on VH1 is only a half hour into it’s 2 hour run time. I may get distracted.

-To add some more opinions on the Hunter Pence to the Third Reich Philadelphia Phillies: They will overpay for him! They are the front runner for his services!

-Meanwhile, all quiet on the New York Yankees front when it comes to the rumor department. They did however activate Rafael Soriano from the DL. So look for him to cause problems and start giving up runs in no time.

-In U.S. soccer news, one day after the firing of  the men’s coach Bob Bradley (YAY!) comes the hiring of German national Juergen Klinsmann. This is a step in the right direction for the US. Now, if only we could get rid of that asshat Landon Donavon.

– Pittsburgh Steeler James Harrison is apologizing for remarks he made earlier this summer. If I know anything about Roger Goodell’s tenure as commissioner, it’s that he is easily swayed by a sincere apology.

Ruben is going Hunting

The Answer....the White version


OK time to stop fucking around with the San Francisco Giants.  While this is most certainly a complete over-reaction, the Phillies need to make a move to bring in Hunter Pence.  I have been reading all the positive and negative aspects of Pence recently and to be frank, we need him…badly.  While we will be getting Placido Polanco back soon, which will be a major boost, the Giants bullpen seems to make Ryan Howard and Chase Utley turn into Greg Dobbs.  They have a pen full of lefty’s that neutralize them at an alarming rate.   Obviously having a right-handed power bat in the lineup could do wonders for the offense, but the point here is that this guy is 28 entering the prime of his career.  With a win now mentality, the Phillies can’t afford to wait and see if Domonic Brown will ever learn how to run the bases or take the right route to a fly ball.  Just look at last years playoff series against the Reds for evidence.  Jay Bruce was a STUD all year long.  Then the playoffs come and he misses that one fly ball in the outfield of game 2(I think, I consumed roughly 35 beers before all of those games) and the Reds never had a chance after that.  I’m about as comfortable as a whore in Sunday mass with Dom out there patrolling meandering aimlessly playing right field.  The good news is that we have a GM that will literally mind fuck every other GM he’s competing against to get his guy.  Ruben is probably one of the most savvy baseball executives in the game, and he wants to win a World Series BADLY.  As some other distinguised writer whom i cannot remember right now mentioned, he is from Philadelphia.  He grew up here, played here, lives here, and now works here.  He knows how badly last year stung for everyone that was involved.  He doesn’t want to sit there in October wishing he went out and got that bat…..he’s going to go get that bat.
