I find it hilarious and ironic that you get butt-hurt when other posters "rail" at you, yet you write dozens of posts every day about Amaro. I think I do follow your logic, since Amaro is a crappy GM, you can insult him with impunity, but conversely, I cannot insult you for being a crappy poster (because you have more fans)...
Tue., 12/03/13 - 19:27 PM
Isn't your buddy copper a season ticket holder?
Tue., 12/03/13 - 19:21 PM
Is the irony lost on you that you get butt-hurt when other posters "rail" on you, yet you generate dozens of posts daily screaming about Amaro?
What will you post about when Amaro does get fired?
Tue., 12/03/13 - 17:36 PM
what kind of birdbrained loser spends years obsessing over and stalking the Phillies GM on a newspaper website?
At least if I stalk posters they respond directly to me, you come on this site and obsess about Amaro everyday with no results, what do you expect to accomplish?
Tue., 12/03/13 - 17:29 PM
Yes copper, I'm a troll, an apologist, I work for the Phils PR dept, and my old screen name was DixonBuns. I absolutely concede that you are a bigger internet tough guy than I could ever be. I am an internet weakling next to you good-sir.
You got anything new to say...
Tue., 12/03/13 - 13:08 PM
There are no "nitwits" or "apologists", every single person on this sight knows Amaro is terrible. What you and about 5 other guys fail to see is that you all post the same boring, negative posts day after day, multiple times a day on multiple articles. You put yourself out there for ridicule, and then are surprised when you get it.
Here's a question I would like you and copper to answer honestly (you should be able to answer since you keep such accurately dated records of your posts)- How many comments have you posted in the past month? How many times have you made comments about Amaro where you referred to him as "clueless", "imbecile", "ruin tomorrow", etc., etc. And finally, with all your thousands and thousands of words posted, what have you accomplished?

Revere hit .312 in May, .354 in June, and .388 in July. He should not be the everyday centerfielder, but he should be starting every day at one of the corners. The exaggerations about his arm by some of the posters on this site are laughable. He is the only young player on this team with any actual upside.

Hey copper, if I had a dollar for every time you wrote about another poster being in the Phils PR department, I'd be a millionaire. The only comments worse than that are when you and the "boys" speculate that writers won't be at the buffet line because of articles that they may or may not write in the future.

I love you silly old guys, so I won't break your stones for not knowing how the internet works. You have to be prepared for replies to your comments in public forums.

By the way, if you respond to my comment with a witty comeback, make sure it doesn't contain the phrase "in your mothers basement" (that's just as bad as calling someone a troll).

Mark- Get off your self righteous high horse. There is no "gold standard" in professional sports. The reality is that most athletes are 20-something millionaires who have been coddled, enabled, and protected their entire lives. As they age, they become less relevant. Some of them deal with that part better than others. Andrews didn't like McNabb stealing his attention then, and is getting his payback now.

Calling him an embarrassment is one way to look at Howard's 2013. Another view would be that he played for a month and half with a torn meniscus in his left knee and needed season ending surgery to correct it.
Some call him a big piece of turd, while others would say he played through an injury and was giving all he could.

So... Chooch was the "#1 backstop" during the glory years, and should be given an automatic contract (no matter what the cost, or years for a 35 year old catcher)?
It's all business and posturing on both sides. If either the phillies or chooch showed preference or loyalty, they would be considered weak.

Booben and Papelbum are hilarious nick names. Did you make them up?
Wed., 11/06/13 - 12:59 PM
Ben Revere should not be the everyday centerfielder. That being said, he should be starting in right or left. He is 25 years old and makes $500,000 a year. He and Utley were the lone bright spots offensively last year. Revere is probably the only good deal Amaro has made in 3 years.
The arm strength issue is so blown out of proportion that it's becoming rediculous. While it's true that Revere's arm most likely won't vastly improve, his instincts and positioning will as he matures as a player.

I don't really understand the commenters bashing Chip Kelly. What were your expectations for this team? Playoffs? Superbowl?
The eagles are pretty much playing like what any sane person thought they would. If you don't have a franchise QB in the NFL, it's almost impossible to win consistently.

The above guys are bench coaches on the four NL teams that were in the playoffs this year. Do you know why you don't recognize those names? It's because MLB bench coaches aren't that important. Whether it's Bowa, or some other guy, it doesn't matter. A bench coach won't swing the Phillies into playoff contention.

Hamels' bad-luck season ends as Phils lose to Marlins
- 5 out of 52 total comment(s)
Thu., 09/26/13 - 15:14 PM
Let me start by saying the philly.com website sucks b@lls. I have to refresh the page 4 times so I can respond directly to your post, i guess its all about the (fraudulant)page-hits.
Anyway, I feel that people get down on modern pitchers, and it mostly has to do with what they are paid. Sherzer is making 6 mil this year and Verlander is making 20 mil. Are the Tigers dumb for signing Verlander to that contract? Players (pitchers specifically) under AND out perform their contracts all the time. It's just natural. As several above noted about Carlton's follow up to the 72 season shows, it happens. Look at the whole body of work, not just the current year's stats.
Thu., 09/26/13 - 13:39 PM
Where in my post did you see a comparison of Hamels to Maddux? I simply asked your opinion if you thought that Maddux was a "stopper".
Thu., 09/26/13 - 13:02 PM
Please see Verlander's stats posted above this.
Maddux threw a lot of changes, curves and sinkers. Was he a "stopper"?
Thu., 09/26/13 - 12:29 PM
Cole Hamels- 3.60 ERA, 202 SO, 1.16 WHIP (8-14 record)
Verlander-3.56 ERA, 207 SO, 1.33 WHIP (13-12 record)
A question for you, who would you rather start in a playoff game- Kershaw or Max Sherzer?
Thu., 09/26/13 - 10:14 AM
Not to nit-pick, but Hamels made 20 mil this year, not 25. You know who did make 25 mil? CC Sabbathia. His ERA this year was 4.78, and he had a paltry 1.37 whip. But I guess he's awesome because he had a 14-13 record on a team that almost made the playoffs...
Good pitchers make big money, some years are better than others, it's a fact of life.

He's the reason they won? Really?
Tue., 08/20/13 - 10:18 AM
I didn't know that the Ibanez carried the Yanks to a championship last year due to his great pinch hitting. I guess you learn something new everyday.
Manuel absolutely needed to be replaced, it was time. But to say he was the most incompetent manager of all time is just silly (even for you). When you micro-analyze the philllies, the way you do, you seem to not see any other teams/ managers problems, only the good things they do.

Do you live in a cave, or are you just too old and feeble-minded to know how to use google?

As far as trade bait goes, M. Young & Utley are both older 3 month rentals, which arent' going to bring much back in return.
I'm not too sure there is a market for Chooch or Rollins, but it's been said the Yankees like dependable catchers, either way, I don't see much coming back in return for either player.
The only two trading pieces that would most likely yield promising prospects would be Cliff Lee and Papelbon. But, if you are trying to stay competitive in the present, you need both of them. It doesnt look like there any easy answers.
At least the Phillies havent rolled over, and are showing some spark.

Very cool picture.
@S- Wasn't it you yesterday saying that they needed to win two thirds of their remaining games, and have the Braves go .500 to even have a shot at making the playoffs?
If that is the scenario, I don't see it happening, unless something changes.

Team defense is not great, but bullpen era is 4.58 (highest in NL), .272 BAA (highest in NL), and 1.50 WHIP (highest in MLB).

You talked about the angst of the fans, I think one of the major problems with us fans (especially those of us that post on these pages) is that it seems like the Phillies are viewed under a microscope without any context of what's going on around the rest of the league. A baseball season can't be viewed as a football season where you live and die with every win/ loss. Sometimes you have to let sh*t play out.
With that being said, you should have answers to all your questions in the next 3 weeks.
