I am thouroghly DISGUSTED right now.
The Phillies were in Montreal tonight and jumped out to an early 8-0 lead. I was sitting back enjoying a rare blowout instead of biting my nails, and
watching the scoreboard as the Marlins were losing to the Pirates.
Well as soon as they yanked starter Vincente Padilla out, the wheels fell off. The Expos exploded for 7 runs in the 7th inning and went on to beat the
I am a die-hard Phillies fan and I almost dont think that they deserve to make the playoffs. I really hope they do, but I am just disgusted. How can
you surrender an 8 run lead when you are in a VERY tight playoff race? Is this a case of just bottoming out at the wrong time of the season or should
I question their heart?
Mike Williams got knocked around in that 7th inning and they left him out there. WTF was Bowa thinking? He has got beat up in almost every appearance
he has made since the Phils traded for him from the Pirates. At the time of the trade I couldn't believe we got the Pirates closer for a no-name minor
league pitcher. NOW I KNOW WHY!
This kind of loss could potentially cause a team to simply implode. Or maybe, just maybe it could wake their a$$es up and bring them together and make
a good run at this playoff spot. I hope these guys go back to their hotel and think about what happened in Montreal tonight and decide how much they
want this, because it sure as heck didn't show tonight.
