Boston is impressed.
 
2013-06-25 09:22:54 AM  
I farking hate Papelbon, so this was pretty much the most amusing thing of my day yesterday.

Oh wait - that was the Bruins' spectacular loss.

So Papelbon's FAILarity was the #2 amusing thing yesterday, after a performance that could also be described as #2.

As a Phillies fan,


TIME TO SELL MORTIMER!

 
2013-06-25 09:26:25 AM  
As a Royals fan I absolutely cannot relate to what happened here and have no idea what this is.  No sir.  I have never seen this happen before.  Ever.
 
2013-06-25 09:32:33 AM  
Um, the Phillies never had a 3-0 lead with 2 outs in the 9th.

Although they did have a 3-0 lead with 0 outs in the 9th.
 
2013-06-25 09:35:46 AM  
At least the Sox got rid of Jonathan "Blown Save" Papelbon.
 
2013-06-25 10:07:37 AM  
I think Papelbon is having trouble getting used to actually being in games again. He pitched what, 2 or 3 times? in about as many weeks, because Charlie refuses to go away from the "closer is for save situations ONLY" thinking.

Piizzadude: TIME TO SELL MORTIMER!


Problem is, the person doing the selling is like the kid in 5th grade who always traded away his cupcake for an old apple and some stale Cheetos.

I do find it funny that the Phillies management still thinks this team has a chance to win this year.  Rumors are they are not listening to any talk of trading off big names like Lee just yet.  Unless of course some team overwhelms them with an offer of 2-3 top prospects.  The problem is no one will do that with the money Lee is still owed, unless Philly eats half of it.

We're talking about the same mgmt group where the GM just proclaimed he "doesn't do 5-year plans" (or anything even close), and the president essentially said that as long as they get 3 of 10 decisions right, they're doing pretty well. So, it doesn't surprise me that they they won't be convinced it's time to sell off until it's almost too late. At which point, Ruben will probably make a bunch of deals which cause everyone to look bewildered at the return.

As a lifelong Phillies fan it is nice to have my rotten team back. It is not quite as bad as the horrors of the '73 season when they won only 54 games but this winning thing they have been doing for the last decade was really  hard to deal with. With them losing all the time i can now go back to being comfortably numb and treasuring the rare victory. I feel sorry for you younger Phillies fans this is THE REAL team and it is back to stay.

 Welcome back to last place. I missed you!

ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!?!

Still not as entertaining as the 6-3 lead the Angles took into the 9th on Sunday against the Pirates.

As a Pirates fan, I really enjoyed watching that game on TV with my nephew.  He's 12 and when the Pirates put Grilli in he turned to me and said, "Why do I have a bad feeling this is going to be close?"  Grilli should only be put in if it's a save opportunity.

As for the Phillies...HA HA HA!  I love it when my cocky Philly sports fan friends are forced to shut their loud mouths.

The same can be said about you blustering Pittsburgh fans who think their teams walk on water.

Well to be fair, Philly sports fans have a lot to be cocky about.  I mean, the Phillies have already won two world championships in a mere 130 years of existence, the Eagles are only 53 years removed from their last title, the Flyers won back-to-back Stanley Cups (in the early 70s), and you'd be hard-pressed to find a more successful NBA franchise than the 76ers in the whole of Pennsylvania.

/Oh, and Rocky.  Don't forget Rocky.

Sadly enough, right now, you'd be hard pressed to find that the 76ers exist, period. The only news we've gotten about the team in the last 6+ weeks was yesterday's communication snafu about whether or not their CEO is still employed as their CEO.

Hardy-r-r: Papelblown


It's not usually him, though.  He's actually had a decent 2013.  29 IP, 21 H, 4 HR, 26 K, 5 BB.  2.12 ERA.  The 3.65 FIP suggests he's due for some regression, although FIP isn't park-adjusted, and that stadium sucks for the pitcher.

Here's what the bullpen as a whole has been doing, compared to all of MLB.  What's weird is that they aren't being worked hard-- Philly's relievers are 28th in IP, because their starters are workhorses.  and yet, even filling a smaller number of innings in the non-DH league, they've managed to put up a 4.68 ERA (good for 30th).

C'mon, it's not that bad.  This year and last year are nothing like the teams of previous decades.  Hell, they were still in the wild card hunt in August last year.

So yeah, they kind of suck.  But they're not nearly as bad as the dreck they ran out there for most of their existence.  And it will be hard (though not impossible) to get that bad again with that high of a payroll.

Really?

The Phillies have two guys who don't suck under the age of 30.  One, Cole Hamels, is 29 and having a very down year.  The other, Domonic Brown, is hitting very well, but can't field, can't draw many walks, and may be a meh hitter who just got lucky on a handful of swings.

The Phillies are stuck paying the husk of Ryan Howard 25 million a year for another five years.

If you're looking at future prospects, I'll gladly take the Mets.

And if you're talking about past success, no professional sports team in any league in any sport in any country ever has lost as many games as the Phillies.

Losses tend to build up when a team has been around for well over a century. I admit they have a great history of being losers. But that "most losses ever" figure is meaningless.

eh, White Sox ended up winning in the bottom of the 9th anyway because, well, they were playing the Mets, but they -were- winning in the top of the 9th and blew it via soft infield pop up collision and Hawk's reaction was delightful (I have nothing against the White Sox, I just really, really hate Hawk Harrelson).

As for more baseball threads, there should be an A-Rod submission or two in the queue, but we'll see how that goes.

How does that matter?  There are still a ton of teams that have no where near that many games played, so saying "most losses ever" doesn't mean anything.  So it's kind of pointless using that as a basis of comparison to a team like the Mets, who have only been around not even half as long.  Though they do have a slightly better win% than Philly, so yeah, the Phillies suck.

As a long time Sox fan and papelbon hater (actually a hater of any closer not named Mariano Rivera), I have to admit he put up solid numbers in 2012 for the Phils, and his 2013 stats are pretty solid still. Not $50m solid, but solid.
