Oh how revenge is sweet ! Last nights game was probably the most bizarre play-offs game I have ever seen to say the least. It had it all, clutch hitting, dominant pitching, a benches clearing brawl that never was – and oh yeah the Phillies season ends not too prematurely but just the way I hoped . All I know is that I was hysterically laughing when the Phillies biggest power threat , buckled at a Brian Wilson breaking pitch for strike three, sending the defending National League champion Phillies to the showers.
So there you have it , the Phucking Phils have just had their own Carlos Beltran moment. So I ask Phillies phans everywhere – ” Are you feeling the sting of denial ?” ” Is Ryan Howard, Roy Oswalt, Ryan Madson and Jimmy Rollins now the poster children for the 2010 National League Championship Series collapse?”
All I can say is Kharma – She’s a bitch !!!
And without further ado … HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!!
Happy birthday wishes go out to former Mets utility infielder from the mid ’80′s and current manager of the Minnesota Twins, Ron Gardenhire (1957).
Back up catcher from ’82-’83, Junior Ortiz is 51 (1959) .
Middle reliever for the ’05 Mets, Mike Matthews is 37 (1973).
Sadly on this date in 1973 Willie Mays announced his retirement . Willie had hung on way too long as a ballplayer, but his presence helped propel the Mets to the World Series that year. He would later become a coach for the Mets until commissioner, Bowie Kuhn banned him for working as a greeter at a Atlantic City Casino. The ban has since been rescinded.
Mo Vaughn is rooting for the Texas Rangers ( they have the most ex Mets !!)
