“Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” – Matthew 7:6

Never to be outdone, Ruben Amaro, Jr. wasn’t just going to roll over and let someone he hired win the hearts and minds of Philadelphia with a thoughtful and sensitive gesture.

Ruben, though, ol’ Ruby, he’s a man who gets it, like Ricky Watters got it, or the guy who runs the ad campaign for Godshall’s Turkey Bacon. You will never catch Ruben Amaro, Jr.  throwing his pearls before swine.

I’m not saying that there’s no hope of us turning things around–I mean after all, we have ROY MOTHERDUCKING HALLADAY–it’s just that, things tend to look reallllly bleak after you lose three out of four to the Pirates.

But I checked with the Pope and, no matter how bad we suck, we’re still allowed to make fun of the Mets.

So here’s a scouting report for the upcoming series.
