Stomp these f***ers. I don’t care about the trade deadline. I don’t care about what message Ruben may infer from on-field performances. I don’t care about how much certain players (whose names may or may not rhyme with Felmon Tongue) annoy you. Beat the Natinals. Beat them bad. Break them.

I’m an incredibly tough judge when it comes to mascots, mostly because I’m a giant homer and think the Phillie Phanatic is the be-all and end-all when it comes to them. That said, the Pirates parrot made me chuckle last night when he basically rubbed some bald old dude behind home plate’s head for an entire half-inning. I have no idea how to embed this so just CLICK HERE AND WATCH.

Let’s loosely look at last night’s eighth inning through the lens of a few random observations:

  • Delmon Young isn’t fast.
  • Charlie Manuel wanted to pinch run for him, but John McDonald apparently isn’t appreciably faster than DELMON YOUNG.
  • John McDonald has a career .602 OPS.
  • John McDonald has a career batting average- over 15 seasons- of .236.
  • Delmon Young couldn’t score from first on a double.

I’m not going to lie to you, kids, I was rooting for Carlos Zambrano to make it to the Phils because: (a) he’s a lunatic who cracks me up and (b) I hate John Lannan’s face. The odds of that happening took a serious hit last night in Lehigh Valley, where he left after two innings with “serious pain”– Ruben Amaro’s words– in his shoulder. Here, read a real journalist’s report.

Reader Luke tweeted me this picture. It seems there’s serious unrest brewing among the NJ Lumber community over the Phils’ performance (and questions as to effort). We’ll monitor this situation closely.
