Just think how much tougher their jobs got after the Sox won the world series and couldn't trot out the same recycled Curse of the Bambano articles.

I thought that was such a bullshit storyline.

I still want Charlie Manuel's job for this. He should give money back to the team for all of his bullshit. Say what you want about chemistry, but when push comes to shove, a fucking moron is a fucking moron, and if that fucking moron is making tough decisions ... you're fucking screwed.

Wow. The Indians just put together the worst three consecutive at-bats in the history of mankind after a leadoff triple.

Thanks for the close up shots of the gants laying eggs on Joba's neck, TBS. I never thought anything during this broadcast could make me sicker than Tony Gwynn.

Nothing better than 12 pitch at bats in the 10th.

And as usual, the Dice-man is on pace to throw 246 pitches in 5 innings.

The way things are going, the Indians are going to have to steal home to score.

I'm kind of surprised by Dice-K so far. I know this performance isn't out of the ordinary from what we've seen this year, but I really thought the extra rest, and the fact that the Angels have never faced him, really would've given him a major advantage.

Hasn't happened.

I'm a believer again

From Larry Shenk's (Phillies PR VP) daily blog:

Quote:
There's Still Hope

October 5, 2007

There’s still hope, believe me.

Yes, the 2001 Yankees are the only team to rebound from 0-2 to win the series. So, it is time for it to happen in the NL. We certainly are capable of winning three in a row.

Friday in Denver
81 degrees greeted the Phillies on a sunny afternoon at Coors Field. The Phillies worked out at 1 this afternoon, the Rockies three hours later.

Flight here was last night was fine, except for about an hour delay while on the Philly runway. We got to the hotel around 1 a.m., EDT.

Clubhouse was opened to the media at 12 noon. Charlie and Jamie Moyer did the interview room at 2:30.

Players went about their business as usual before working out. Moyer sat alone by his locker reading USA TODAY and several magazines; several players spent time in the work out room; Howard, Dobbs, Rollins, Victorino, Hamels, Myers, Gordon, Romero did group interviews; Burrell and Billmeyer played cards; Alfonseca was his usual self, needling his teammates; Utley spent a lot of time in the video room watching tapes of tomorrow night’s starter, RHP Ubaldo Jimenez; Condrey spent time with a crossword puzzle; others were working on sudoku.

Panic wasn’t anywhere.

Different Reception
The perception of the 2007 Phillies and 1993 Phillies is at extremes.

In 1993 when we arrived in Atlanta, a newspaper headline read, “Get the women and children off the streets, the Phillies are here.” That was the reputation of the team, a bunch of bearded, gruff, wild bunch of misfits who just knew how to play baseball.

Back on July 8 this year in Denver, the current Phillies helped rescue some Coors Field groundskeepers who got caught under the tarp during a storm. While there were no headlines in the Denver papers, fans out here still remember the Phillies heroics.

I’m sure TBS will show a clip of it tomorrow.

Coste to Coast
Chris’ comments will return tomorrow. In response to some inquiries, his book Catching The Dream is scheduled to come the presses next spring training.

At least he has another chapter to add to the book.

I still think we can do it...the Phils can win 3 games in a row.
