Can I write something about the game that this expression doesn’t already say? (h/t @BckwoodsPayback)

Ryan Howard squandered opportunities and killed a rally, and De Fratus got Puig’d on an 0-2 slider and that’s pretty much the end of that.

Lost in Zolecki’s recap was Greinke’s perfectly executed backhanded compliment to the Phillies’ aging core: Read more »

Hey guys, we did it! Our very own Philly Daily News finally said what we’ve been saying all along. At last, we have been WOW’d.

Swag Man Jimmy Rollins gots nothin’ on the Phils’ top man in this year’s draft, JP Crawford.

Just…wow.

A quick analysis of his fashion sense will quickly tell any fan that this kid’s got the classic style of a Bradley Cooper mixed with the risque wardrobe of an Antoine Dodson.

I read this story about John Tortorella on Deadspin, enjoyed seeing that most others hated him, and then came across THIS in the comments:

That was rather uncalled for. As such, Mr. “I Still Dream”, you can (as the title suggests) eat a butt.

As you have already heard, the Camden Riversharks have signed Wilson Valdez. In 35 games this season, the Riversharks have committed 34 errors. It’s Camden’s hope that a guy like Valdez can help this team’s porous defense, which has helped the pitching staff allow an average of 6.4 runs per game.

Perhaps his presence will provide the spark they need as they have only won 11 games in the season’s first month and a half. They showed some life last night, putting 13 runs up against York. Valdez played shortstop and batted second, going 2 for 5 with a run scored in his first start (on the two-year anniversary of the 19 inning game that he won against the Cincinnati Reds).

The Riversharks have two games left against York in the current homestand. They won’t be back at Campbell’s Field again until June 4. First pitch today is at 1:35pm and tomorrow they are offering a Memorial Day special – $5 tickets for their 5:35pm start. Get some.

Not for the Phillies. For you.

Yes you – if you’re one of the people that so helpfully offers advice to Jimmy on his strategy at the plate, or one of the people harping on Michael Young for his defense, or Delmon Young for his Delmon Youngness, you have a chance to prove you know what the hell you’re talking about.

tryout-schedule

Starting the last week in June in Lakewood and then every day during the MLB All-Star Break, the Philadelphia Phillies will be holding open tryouts at every one of their farm clubs’ ballparks.

It’s not complete bullshit, either. A local boy, Bill Rice, came to a tryout at Lakewood’s FirstEnergy Park in 2010 and made the team. He’s been in pro baseball since then, bouncing between the Phillies, the White Sox, and the Riversharks in between his time in affiliated ball.

Seriously, though, if you think you can play ball, and you’d like to make the same shit pay you’re making at your current shit job, but get a hotter girlfriend, then it would behoove you do dust off your glove and pick up that phone.

(h/t to @ChickPhilA for bringing this to my attention)
