Zoo With Roy takes on the haters
A response to Philly.com commenters on the Phillies making the playoffs.
On Tuesday, Zoo With Roy posted 10 reasons why the 2013 Phillies will make the 2013 playoffs. Quite a few commenters took issue with the piece. Zoo With Roy took issue with their issues.
too little too late should have fired Manuel two months ago and we would have had a shot. That idiot Manuel cost this team at least 10 games and Dubee another 5. — gates2012
Zoo With Roy: This is an interesting point. 75-57 sure sounds a lot better to me, too- especially with Delmon Young gone! Extension of your thought process-- and I hate to infer, here-- would lead me to suppose you wanted Dubee fired one month ago? With all of that said, I love Charlie Manuel and am sad he’s gone.
They'll make the playoffs in 2015, certainly in 2016. Otherwise, ZWR, you are delusional. As for the 'timing', gates2012, not sure it matters, they went into a spin, and it cost them 10 games. Was that CManuels or Dubee's fault? Doubt it. More about lackadaisical play and nonchalance. Now that he's gone. It's time to move off of those excuses. — 24sDad
ZWR: Wait so if they don’t make the playoffs in 2016 I’m delusional now? Is there any way to find out sooner please?
I like # 7 reason the best.Are you indicating that Chip Kelly is feeding the PHILS PLAYERS smoothies? You wrote this in the wrong parallel dimension....or...take another hit of whatever you're doing. — HO HUM
ZWR: Are you suggesting Chip Kelly wouldn’t share his smoothies? Maybe you should take a hit of whatever you’re doing, because nothing he’s said or done so far leads me to conclude that he’s selfish. Also, could you please tell me about the right parallel dimension?
2013 Phillies have a 0% chance to make the wild card, as stated by MLB.com. The losing streak back in late July messed up their season. Next year, they will win the division and be World Series champions. — PhilsPhanPhorLife
ZWR: Well so long as we’re dealing with certainties I guess I’d take your scenario, PhilsPhanPhorLiphe.
"Philly.com contributor." What exactly do you "contribute?" What a waste of electrons. — wmichael
ZWR: Are electrons the positive or negative ones? Wait, they’re negative. So that means that I’m a waste of negativity, and thus a net positive.. Thanks, science!!!
You're an idiot! — drantonio1
ZWR: That wasn’t nice. I hope you’re kinder to your patients, Dr. Antonio.
Wait...some of you people took this seriously? What? — Only in Philly...
ZWR: You didn’t take this seriously?
Dude...Lay off the crack pipe. — uncommon sense
ZWR: Wouldn’t this be sound advice regardless of how you feel about my bold prediction? As such… thanks! Remember the video for Bruce Springsteen’s “Streets of Philadelphia”? He walks through the playground at Fifth and Washington past the “South Philly Don’t Believe the Hype” mural. I was proud to be from South Philly when that came out, because we didn’t believe the hype.
Literally a 0.00% chance for the Phils to make the playoffs. Over/under on wins for the rest of the year is set at 14.5 — DrunkPhilsFans36
ZWR: I see you’re referencing the same study as PhilsPhanPhorLiphe, and I’m not one to dispute empirical findings, but I feel it in my bones, DrunkPhilsFans36. Call me an optimist. Yes, someone who’s drunk on optimism.
^^^^ You morons know this isn't serious, right? — DogfightingAficionado
Hard to believe some people took this seriously. Nice change of pace article. — fish1463
AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH. No, but really.....AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHH — jibberjabber
ZWR: Hey now guys I put a lot of thought into this.
do you guys really think we can help them do it? I'm a little hesitant, don't want to get my heart broken again. — BUDDY GROOM
ZWR: You keep the faith Buddy Groom. And I can relate, nobody wants their heart broken. Nobody wants that date where they pay a ton to park and pony up for the cheesy bread app and buy drinks and then get nothing out of it that’s awful wait what.
I hate to say it, but I really don't want the Phils to make the playoffs this year. Considering their lack of offense and their bullpen, they'd just get blown out in the first round, just as the Braves always do. Maybe next year. — Callisonfan
ZWR: Wow, this is quite the defeatist attitude. Don’t think like that, Callisonfan. And remember, that bullpen and NEW lineup are cited as reasons for the Fightins making the playoffs in my well-thought-out and precisely-written piece of journalism.
April fools !!! — HTBNM#
ZWR: It’s August 28th. #OMFGBBQ
I'm sorry maybe you mean a different thing when you say math, but they are 18 games behind Atlanta for the Division and 13.5 games out of the wild card (4 teams back) with only 31 games to play. They have no chance to make the playoffs. — lostInPhilly
ZWR: Carolina. Hurricanes. Second. Wild. Card. Troll on, hater.
Yea, and they will make it all the way to the World Series where the will be playing the Angels. Sadly they will lose in Game 7 on an error in the outfield . Sound familar. Well, I did'nt start this idiotic ramble ! — candidly
ZWR: Wait what
The Penguin is making good sense here.... — DelawareRiverRat
ZWR: Thanks bro
