Shit That has happened since I Last Posted

Shit…Got…Weird

 

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

The Daily Drive “The Day The Earth Didnt Stand Still”


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.  Earthquakes are so 2010.

 

-So lets get this right out of the way.  An Earthquake hit Virgina today.  The world moved on.

 

-The NY Football Giants already depleted secondary lost yet another CB today.  After losing impact player Terrell Thomas last night to a torn ACL, they lost CB Brian Witherspoon to a torn ACL as well.  Somehow Papa Bear seems to think that this will not effect the Giants at all.  He won’t give me any facts to support this argument (or words on this site for that matter (Shots Fired Shots Fired!)), but he is deliriously confident in his team right now.

The Case for Carlos


"I will run to Philly if it means i dont have to play with Jason Bay"

The Philadelphia Phillies are in dire need of an offensive boost.  They barely made it out alive in last nights game against the Cubs, and only won because of the late inning heroics of Chase Utley and Michael Martinez.  Rumors have been circulating for weeks about whether or not they need to trade for someone or to just go with what they have and hope for the best.  The most recent story is that the Phil’s seem to covet Carlos Beltran.  This makes me hopeful and queasy the same time.  Beltran has long been on my list of least favorite baseball players of all time.  It didn’t help the fact that he played for the Mets, tried to talk shit to the Phillies claiming that they were in fact the “team to beat”, or that absolutely disgusting mole that he has on the side of his head.  I’m going to try and break down all the positives and negatives this signing would have on the Phillies for you, and I will do my best to be civil.

The Daily Drive 5/26/2011


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. Your satisfaction is our guarantee*. (*not an actual guarantee.)

-Starting things off with a crazy night in Philadelphia. The Phillies went 19 deep with the Reds, coming out victorious after a Raul Ibanez sac fly scored Jimmy Rollins. The real story though is the tale of two pitchers: Wilson Valdez the infielder pitching the 19th (and earning the win) for his beleaguered bullpen, and before him Danny Baez pitching 5 innings of 1-hit baseball like the GM of the Reds had his wife at gunpoint. Goddammit, I hate the Phillies.

-They weren’t the only team going extra last night as the Fish played 12 with the Defending World Series Champion San Francisco Giants and managed to win the mid-week series against the Defending World Series Champion San Francisco Giants. Seriously, how did the Phillies lose to this team last year? The real story though was Giants catcher Buster Posey getting his leg broke by backup fielder Scott Cousins. Now Bruce Bochy, the Giants manager, is asking for a rule change.

Oh no, what’s that I hear? It’s a JAuger rant, making it’s way around the station.

Here’s the fucking deal Bruce. You cannot sit there and say it’s a part of the game and then a half second later say that you think Major League Baseball should be contemplating a rule change. For years and years and years (and years?) catchers have been getting run over by baserunners. It’s one of those reasons most catchers look like NHL goalies, circa 1975. (That and the high cheese.) This is baseball not softball. Posey weighs 220 lbs, while Cousins couldn’t hit 200 soaking wet. I am by any means not a traditionalist but enough with proposing a rule change every time there is an outcome unfavorable to your team. If that’s Cody Ross sliding into John Buck’s femur, I bet you all we hear from Bruce Bochy is the routine “that’s a baseball play.” Get your head out of your ass Bruce and wake up. As a former Major League catcher you should know the inherent risk that comes with playing the position. If Posey didn’t want to get hurt he should of been a musician. Dude’s expecting twins with his wife later in the year, and now thanks to Scott he can finally paint that baby room. Hell, he’s got all summer. ::Grabs wet towel, lights cigarette::
