2 Games Back and Counting

Friday, July 25, 2008 ·

Editor's Note: John, Spell Check is your friend.

Yes Philly fans it's here. After close to 2 months of futility, your beloved Phillies are surrendering. After the way they have been playing recently, you would think they would be 12 games out of first. But no. The Mets, Braves, and Marlins shared futility kept them in first.

But 2 of those teams turned their shit around. Florida and New York have surged back into the race. The Mets have taken a 2 game lead over 2nd place Florida and 3rd place Philly.

Yes! 3rd fucking place! How? This is the best offense in the NL! Yes their pitching has been over achieving and bull pen was awesome, but with the offense and bullpen faltering, it leaves the starting pitchers wondering if they'll get any fucking support.

Cole Hamels said it himself that there is no way he should pitch as well as he had on Sunday and not win. Jamie Moyer followed suit with a stellar performance and a loss to the Mets, and now Kyle Kendrick was in the same boat.

Kendrick went 6 innings and gave up a run on 7 hits, 2 walks, and 2 strike outs. The offense mustered only 2 fucking hits while he was in. In the top of the 9th, the bull pen completely went to shit as Brad Lidge gave up 5 runs, 4 from a grand slam by Brian McCann. Condrey came in and gave up 2 more runs.

After that debacle, Chase got a 2 out base hit and Ryan Howard homered. If Lidge didn't have his first poor appearance of the year, Howards blast would have been a walk off.

For Atlanta, Jiar Jurjens went 8 shut out innings, giving up 3 hits and 1 walk, striking out 6. The rookie completely embarrassed this offense. Will Ohman pitched the 9th, giving up the only 2 runs this athletic offense could muster.

After Justin's rant, which was laced with sarcasm for the idiots who think Justin had confidence in this team, I felt it was my turn to give some criticism. And I give a big fuck you to:
Jimmy Rollins for not having his priorities straight.
Chase Utley for looking like a little girl in the batter's box.
Pedro Feliz for being a pussy with back spasms.
Jayson Werth for your shitty at bats.
So Taguchi for swinging like a little Chinese girl.
Brett Myers for being born.
Joe Blanton for being fatter than Howard.

You all make me sick due to your performances or lack of caring.

Thank you Howard for you efforts in getting your season back on track and thank you Pat Burrell for the hustle and great catch in foul territory. Thanks Hamels and Kendrick for being the future of this team and pitching your asses off and to Moyer for defying your age.

I hope this team gets their heads out of their asses because I am embarrassed to wear my Phillies hat.

I bet Il Pad is the Met's fan up top. I'm already thinking about next year because I don't see this shit stopping. This team is sad to watch.

And fuck you to the F.O. Thanks for nothing.

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
