he ‘usually’ gets killed by Howard
HAVE NOT WON A PLAYOFF GAME SINCE 2001
1 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
JOE TORRE SHOWED YOU HOW TO WIN WITH GOOD TEAMS ALONG WIH TONY LARUSSA
SAY WHAT YOU WANT BUT THE GUYS PLAYED HARD FOR THEM
August 8th, 20129:19 pm
the pitches up in the 4th and 5th inning should have been a warning sign for Fredi.
Which is why, imo, after he hit Utley, he should’ve been taken out. Screw qualifying for the win, get the out now and lower the likelihood of the game getting tied. Howard has owned Huddy, and in this situation, I wouldn’t have risked it.
Dang Mikie. Contact…Run…Contact….RUN..
Pace- i don’t care if the bases were loaded! He is the one person in the Phillies lineup who will kill you. Walk him, hell, hit him with the pitch, don’t give him anything… cause you know why? pitching around him will not cost you the lead. The guy behind him is not going to hit a grand slam.
This team consistently (and i’m talking for the last several years) get’s burned by the other teams best hitter. Over and over and over again.
When is enough, enough?

Boy that 5th inning gave a ton of momentum to the Phillies. Happens almost every time to all teams.

All you guys and girls will be sorry when Fredi is named mangler of the year
I’m thinking this was NOT a Typo.
Fredi asleep in dugout could not see pitches were up

I can’t think of a situation where Hinske should enter a game for the Atlanta Braves.
Bench clearing brawl maybe?
That’s nice Jason
man 1 more foot and thats gone
Nice double, JHey!
Heyward just looks good this year. Great hit off the Bastardo
Nice double J-Hey…. gotta hope for a 2-out hit here.
almost another one by this dumb bastard
August 8th, 20129:22 pm
J hey a meaningless double with no one on
tmc – I’m speechless and in awe of your wisdom. You win, I hope we walk in a run every time the bases are loaded ‘because the guy behind a great hitter’ can’t hurt you.
Here is Chipper….the man you told to go home…..see they know better to pitch to the switch hitter….they Btaves would have the lead if they did….
lets do this freeman!! make em pay!!
burn him fred
Well, the Astros are following the script, allowing the Gnats to beat them, but it seems the Phillies didn’t get the word. They don’t seem to want to “roll over and die” after losing two of their best players. Somebody needs to whisper in Fredi G’s ear how many games are left this year. Any manager with half a brain would have jerked Hudson when it was 6-3. (Yeh, I know, he doesn’t even have half a brain)

All you guys and girls will be sorry when Fredi is named mangler of the year.
Was that intentional?
meaningless until he scores moron
August 8th, 2012
The only problem with that is it would require him to hit someone and when was the last time he hit anything..
i swear i thought i saw chipper flinch a swing on that first intentional ball pitch.
I stand corrected.
August 8th, 20129:24 pm
Wasn’t aware of the off day.
Burn the bullpen then!
Phillies suck with their 170 million dollar payroll ROFL!
LOL…. does hitting f-bomb count?
August 8th, 20129:25 pm
The sending Chipper home post was a joke
Here we go 3-2 to Freeman…..Uh oh Phillies
Come on Uggla
great AB freeman!!! come on uggla
August 8th, 20129:26 pm
COME ON UGGLA. GET A BASE HIT GET A RBI AND YOU WILL BE FORGIVEN. DAN UGGLA
COME DAN UGGLA. MAKE THE PITCHER UGGLY
Well – let’s see if Uggla is really out of his slump and stick with the swing he’s shown so far tonight. A 2 run double would be just fine.
AUTOMATIC OUT NOW
2-out rally here…. It’s Uggla time!
Nice AB Freddie.
strike out or grand slam from uggla/pitcher combo coming in.
Wild Pitch, Please.
August 8th, 20129:27 pm
Is Uggla up? He hits right handers better than left handers I think
uggla’s player of the month campaign starts right here with a grand slam! im calling it (both the player of the month and the grand slam)
First sotfball question tonight. Fredi-no lead is safe in this ball park? That’s right just have to tip your cap to Ryan.
a walk would be OK
Good to hear it was a joke because too many ignorant people hate on him, you never know on here. I did come in a little late though so I might of missed that. My bad.
Hey Pace- lay off the sarcastic cracks about my knowledge. Go attack someone else. You don’t know me or what i know or don’t know.
What we do know is they pitched to R. Howard again in a critical situation and he hit his 40th HR against the Braves (most of any team) and tied the game.
So, make fun of me all you want and deflect the real issue.
I bet if they pitched around him, the Braves would still be winning this game… but that wouldn’t be smart, huh?
August 8th, 20129:28 pm
Phillies have something there with Papelbon, Lindblom, Bastardo, Valdes in the pen.
you got jokes columbus. last time i checked the braves haven’t clinched or won anything. plus the garbage philllies get those sneaky cards next. i’d keep my mouth shut.
Indeed he does.
Come on Uggla! Be the hero brother!
uggla k’s i bet or pops up and slams his bat
August 8th, 20129:29 pm
Hudson channeled Derek Lowe tonight. Sheets and Medlen are our 1 and 2 pitchers.
T-Dawg-No, not this time.
Uggla 5-11 with the bases loaded this year.
One Big Dummy
August 8th, 20129:30 pm
oh that danny boy!!
take that Uggla haters and Philly fans! 3-3 lifetiime against that clown
Daniel Cooley Uggla – called that double – missed by one RBI though
His name is DAN UGGLA!!!!!
Dan Uggla coming up big!!!!
Huge 3 run double. Now time for the bullpen to shut the Phils down
Pull Fredi out of the Fire.
Uggla sukks so bad…
Uggla gonna Ugg
UGGLA IS HOT
Uggla heating up when we need him.
The A Bomb
The world’s most irritating ballplayer delivers.
How about Dan Uggla?
Danny is 3-3 if my math is correct
give us that 5 run lead back ross
0-2ggla clears the bases!!
That is so awesome to see from Uggla.
August 8th, 20129:31 pm
slams his bat into an inside pitch for a 3-run double. YEAH!
My boy is coming out of it!
Bad throw, Great hustle UGGLA!

His name is DAN UGGLA!

Now THAT was fun to watch.
And GREAT base running by Danny- never stopped running. Say what you want about the guy, but he ALWAYS gives everything he’s got, every day, every game
Phillies are coming apart.
Not going to be a forgiving crowd I would bet
August 8th, 20129:32 pm
Thought I’d jump back on to say “I told you so!”
August 8th, 2012
Uggla sukks so bad…
