Philly columnist: Braves nothing to worry about

Uh, six-game lead?

The Braves are a nice team, really nice in some ways, but the notion that leapfrogging the Braves would require super-human effort is ridiculous. The Phillies, if they play as they can, have nothing to worry about, either from Atlanta or from their alleged co-rivals, the Mets.

  1. The fillies started losing right after they were busted for stealing signs using binoculars. This is like Dwayne going on an extended alcoholic spiral after someone pointed out Brenda’s man-hands and pronounced adam’s apple. The only difference between Brenda’s short shorts and the fillies line-up is that one of them still has a potent bat in there.

    Smooth move… I bet that goes up on the bulletin board this afternoon…

    Their rotation is too shaky at the back end to generate a long winning streak, and I doubt they get back into the race without one.

  4. Dave, for the first time you made me laugh but not at you. Potent bat lol. That’s good stuff.

    That really irks me. I’m starting to dislike the Phils more than the Mets. That’s saying something.

    Until we beat them in a pennant race they have no reason to believe otherwise. I hope they make a bad trade or two between now and the deadline.

    I think that article simply heralds a classic August Phillies implosion, driven by their manic fan base.

  8. Living in Southern California, I can tell you that the column is eerily familiar to the ones I read by the Dodgers’ columnists back in 1991.

  9. talked w a die hard Phillies fan – @fcardillo on teh twitterz if you want to razz him. Even he said that article was ridiculous.

    The Jayson Werth contract stuff is causing prblems in their locker room. Werth is supposedly a first class jerk bag.

    Utley may come back earlier than scheduled but by then, their 4th and 5th starters may have them 10 games back. Kyle Kendrick is their Kenshin Kawakami.

    I’m more worried about the Mets with Beltran back. Plus I think they’ll make a run at Oswalt.

    Werth proved what a douche he was the other day screaming at that fan in front of his kid.

    I still think what I did last year: The Phillies have one great starter and a bunch of near-replacement level schmoes, they have a shitty bullpen, they field like the Keystone Kops and their whole offense revolves around a guy who passed on a chance to be Frank Thomas, opting to be Cliff Johnson, instead.

    And we’ve already won today, and the Cardinals are thumping the Phils, which will put them 6 1/2 back, with July nearly over. Yeah, nothing to worry about.
