Zzzzzzzzz…. Oh, sorry, I was lulled to sleep yet again by the Phillies absentee offense. Poor Cole Hamels walks away today with another undeserved loss after pitching a great game, all because his team could not muster up any runs for him. What a waste of an All-Star (a-hem!) caliber pitcher! On the opposite side, you have a pitcher who had not won a game in 9 starts in Joel Pineiro, and the Phillies made him look like a Hall of Famer.
With only 6 hits in the game and guys hitting into three double plays to wipe the base runners out, this team stood no chance. The only player, yet again, who looked like he showed up to play was Pat Burrell, who went 2 for 3 with a double and a walk. So again I say to you, VOTE FOR PAT! Let’s get him in this All-Star game! He deserves to be there and needs our help! Use the link below to vote as many times as you can or you can text the word “VOTE” to 36197 from your mobile phone to have the All-Star Final Vote candidates sent to your phone and then reply with your choice. We only have until Thursday at 5:00pm.
In the meantime, let’s hope that someone steps up in this clubhouse and starts knocking heads together. These sleepy players need to WAKE UP! Throw a bucket of ice down their pants, pies in the face, hose them down, whatever! Just get it done. This team cannot afford another loss.
