« Phils conclude regular-season home schedule tonight | Main | Phillies move on for three with Washington »

The answer for these remaining six games is clear. in between fixtures, cholly has to lock up the whole team in a house in the middle of nowhere, with hardly any food, and make them run the same plays again, and again, and again, until they deconstruct littleball as we know it and turn it into some miraculous thing that the phillies regularly score and actually win games with.

Oh, and he needs some really silly facial hair too. Rick White's got the right idea.

I'd take a 30 minute Ghost jam over that Phils performance any day of the week.

Slow and tedious? Damn you Weitzel.

why's everyone gotta blame yoko all the time? you gotta admit lennon was screwed up before hand...

anyway, Phils have a six-pack of games left. how it turns out, nobody knows. i'm wishing to the best but preparing for the worst...spoken like a true phillies fan.

I really like the idea of the lock up. But let's only put Manuel in the house and hope for the worst.

captain beefheart? taking beerleaguer in a strange new direction. #9. #9. #9.

Now more than ever it's time to get behind this team. Go Phils!

Nothing like a dose of the Captain to help curtail out of control posting.

Best part of the game was the camera continuing to show the Saddam Hussein lookalike. They say that Phillie fans are knowledgable. The fans around me last night we're so uninformed, it was embarrassing. What an unpleasant experience it was being at the game last night.

To add one more metaphor - after Manuel went out to make the first pitching change, there were some strains of Howlin' Wolf in the air...

What if instead of being crazy and avant garde, the phillies just got really good as a team, and so could be relied on to produce a string of winning games as inventive and as endless as a funkedelic jam or a really long can track?

Damn. Forgot you need the right personel to do that properly. pah.

SamDrac, I thought the fan they kept putting on the Phanavision looked more like one of the "Super Mario Brothers" than Saddam Hussein. Also I have to agree with you on the comment about the uninformed fan base last night. A lot more casual fans last night than typical. Hey, bandwagon is growing. Don't really have a problem with it, other than stupid wave during a critical at bat.

I was worried that gNat King Cole was on their team, but thankfully, King Cole pitches for us.

The Capt. Beefheart reference made me thing the game was more like the dischordant Revolution No. 9, but GR beat me to the punch.

Back in the old days (late 50s, early 60s) Philly was the capitol of music, but the Phillies were horrid back then. Let's have some new Philly sweet music these last six games, sweet hitting and lights out pitching. When the Phillies are up, I want to hear the sweet sound of wood bats hitting balls that drop, while when the gNats bat, I want to hear the sweet sound of balls meeting leather, accented by a swishing bat sound.

Myers goes tonight, coming off one of his best games ever. If his "secret" new pitch works tonight, maybe he can keep Svengali Cholly on the pines and keep our dreaded bullpen out of the game.

did you guys see this?

the nats didn't get back until 5 am this morning. only 2 hours behind me.

I have no idea if this would mean anything or not, but I would be very curious what our record is by each catcher starting...put em all in there Lieby, Fasano, Coste and Ruiz.

I would wager that Coste has the best winning percentage.

I would also wager Coste, who caught the majority of the games in August and September. I would also wager Fasano as the worst as he caught a majority during the June swoon.

Dude: Certainly has to be Coste since he was main catcher during the winning streak. Not sure what conclusions, if any, you can draw from that.

don't know if there's anywhere you can find catcher W-L, but catcher ERAs are:

Ruiz 4.23
Coste 4.65
Lieberthal 4.73
Fasano 4.80

Billy Mac, you're right about who he looked like. It was hilarious, though. That stupid wave has got to be distracting to a pitcher. It's like someone yelling on your downswing in golf. The people behind me, who thought they were baseball experts, didn't know who Geoff Geary was. That was the tip of the iceberg with them. It was horrible.

I would imagine that the dumb new CBP fans make the dumb Beerleaguer posters seem like Einstein by comparison. We need to be more tolerant of our psters.
