Live Journal: Several things that I didn’t say before now…
Originally post November 28, 2007 and edited from a longer post with some non-Phillies elements removed:
Okay, let’s begin….
I hated seeing the Phils get swept in the playoffs by the Rockies. I hated it even worst when they did the same things to the Diamondbacks. But, when I saw the Red Sox defeat the Indians the same way they defeated the New York Yankess back in 2004, coming from behind with a 3 games to 1 deficit, I had a feeling that somebody somewhere was rewinding the film and it was 2004 again, only this time it would be the Rockies playing the part of the NL champ that would be swept in four games by the boys from Beantown. And boy, was I right. The Rockies went down in flames losing to the BoSox 4 games to 0. Anyway, congrats Red Sox. Just please, do not become the 21st Century version of the Yankees..
M.V.P.!!! M.V.P.!!! M.V.P.!!! Need I say more? Let’s see, Rollins now owns a Gold Glove, a Silver Slugger and the M.V.P. for the year, while Aaron Rowland won a Gold Glove for his work in the outfield and Chase Utley won a second Silver Slugger at Second. Boy, that’s a lot of bling this year, isn’t it? ;p But, I agree with JayRoll. I rather have the World Series trophy. Pssst, message for the secret cabal running the Phils: Spend some money on real talent, you morons!!! This team have shown that it can win. Now go out there and get somebody who can get them into the World Series and win it, you idiots, and please, no more of those bargain basement crap players that you guys keep bringing us. I, and a lot of other Phillies fans want to see some Grade-A studs coming here. Is that too much to ask? Oh, and that would incude getting off your collective ***** and get Rowland resigned. Idiots!!!
