So I’m reading the recaps from last night’s game and nothing makes sense. I feel like my whole world is shattering before my eyes and hoping that there’s some sort of grave misprint by all the sports media outlets of the world. So far, this is what I can surmise:
JRoll and Burrell hit homers early, Myers pitches seven strong
Utley commits 2 errors in the same inning, Uggie gives up 4 runs, and Burrell shits the bed with the game on the line??? Am i reading this right?!? And then I read this about Wagner:
Manuel said he didn’t second-guess himself for pulling Myers and didn’t use Wagner because he had tightness in his left shoulder. At least that’s what the manager says.
“Everybody’s got soreness. Don’t make no [stuff] up,” said an angry Wagner, who said he was able to pitch and stormed off.
What’s with this guy? Why is he always being such a baby? Has he no tact; he’s always mouthing off or whining about something. Maybe if you didn’t blow two games to Houston your jock wouldn’t be in such a bundle. Oh yea, and nice work on setting down that ultimatum for a new contract. Now that September has come and gone and still no contract, your shallow threat looks kinda lame. I suggest you stop getting advice from T.O. and start closing both your mouth and your games.
I know this was only one game, but one game with a week to play means the world. Like Uncle Charlie said after last night’s devastating loss, “We’re not out of it, but we need to win. We definitely can’t lose any more games.” The good news is the Mets have shut down Pedro for the year and the Phils will face 7-11 Victor Zambrano tonight.
Finally, speaking of starting pitching and not to look ahead to next year already, but the Marlins just stated that A.J. Burnett will not be in teal pinstripes next season. It appears he was frustrated with Jack McKeon’s managerial style. You know what that means: he’s looking for the rocking chair atmosphere that only Charlie Manuel can provide.
