    Phillies need creativity. Now is time to package Hoskins, Franco and Hernandez in prep to acquire a top starter. Start shopping the trio in earnest. This is humorous to suggest with stooges calling shots. Stooges are as creative and productive as their South American player procurement debacle and their North American drafting fiasco. However, let us keep stooges calling shots so organization can spiral to oblivion. The stooges at least are top flight in signing free agents that nobody else wants so they can work closer to the objective of club bankruptcy. This achievement will bring them contract extensions at handsome salaries.

      ‘let us keep stooges calling shots so organization can spiral to oblivion.’

      The Phillies have been in oblivion since 1883. Nobody cares about this team outside of Philadelphia. NOBODY.

      See Tampa / Phila 2008 World Series ratings for confirmation of this assertion. NOBODY watched it because NOBODY cared about crappy Phillies and crappy Rays. Even though the Phillies have been around longer, they are the equivalent of an expansion team or minor league team.

      I, as a Phillies hater, think it incredibly funny that the Phillies have never accomplished anything since 1883, and then when they go to the World Series in 2008, nobody cares and nobody watches it. It is so funny, in fact, that I am laughing my rear-end off just writing it. I also just spit out some very expensive Veuve Clicquot onto the computer screen.

      You don’t need to worry about the Phillies falling into oblivion. They have been firmly established in that tomb for a very long time.
