I'm not surprised at all that the Phillies haven't taken advantage of the Mets falterings. They don't play well till late in the season when:

- They suddenly realize that they're almost out of contention and there's not a lot of time left.
- Jon Lieber gets into shape after four and a half months and starts winning.
- Jimmy Rollins remembers around this time last year remembering that it's a good idea to hit for base hits rather homers.

And specific to this year: Brett Myers returns from injury.

Then they'll lose by a game or two and call the season an overachievement, and go sign another Wes Helms.

Ladies and gentlemen, your Pat Gillick/Charlie Manuel era Philadelphia Phillies!

the pirates may suck, but at the very least they have some clever people in the PR department

Yep first time I take the little rugrat to Fenway when he's older, I'm gonna say..."And Daddy could have played out there except you f'ed it up for him".

That sucks. My buddy is playing at Yankee Stadium on Friday, cannot recall ever being really jealous over something, but, of that I am.

Youk did lead off for a good chunk of 2006 when Coco Crisp was injured.

But the way Lugo's been playing, anybody would be better than him leading off (.269 OBP).

Schilling's most likely missing his next start. Now can we please have Lester called up?

it was perhaps the strangest box score johan has ever had... 92 pitches, 4 hits, 1 strikeout, shutout.

So, I just spoke with a few other cubs fans and I couldn't help but laugh, they were upset because the hendry traded Barrett.

Am I the only one who has watched this guy play over the last few years? He is one of the WORST defensive catchers I have ever seen. He looks like he's trying to catch with a coffee can.

Now, I think Hendry screwed up by not getting value for a good hitting catcher, but come on, I don't think any cubs fan should be sad that he isn't behind the plate anymore...

Dalton, now that I live in Chicago, I hear a lot of Cub/Sox talk...here at the office, most were pleased to see Barrett go.

for a team that's really been a complete joke thus far, trading the one guy to show some emotion wouldn't have been my first move.

barrett is a douchebag extraordinaire, theyre better off without him

getting into fights with 2 of your pitchers within a week isnt really the kind of emotion that helps out

i also find it funny that sammy hit his 600th homerun off the cubs, and off against a crappy ass pitcher who took his number.

the only thing that would have made it better if it was at wrigley
