So there was Derek Lowe sailing, or should I say sinking along through five innings when the Philletes got the break of the game when Rafael Furcal decides to lose all good judgement to eat the grounder by Shane Victorino and throws wildly past James Loney at first send Victorino to second. This woke up the crowd which looked splendid in their brand new Phillies duds as this new phenomena of baseball has taken over a city in which the Iggles and Flyers are the top two teams with the AHL Phantoms third. From there Lowe got a bit rattled (by the way, Lowe was sweating like a pig going to slaughter last night I know it’s unseasonable warm here in the east but Lowe looked like he was pitching on an August night) and went away from what was working all night, killing worms with his sinker, as he got two fastballs up to Utley and Burrell who hit it out of the South Philly Band Box to put the game away for Phinks. As tough as it is who have to keep the ball in the ball park against Philly as that is about the only way they score, hold them homer-less and you stand a good chance of winning.


How hard was it to listen to the televison audio of last night s game? Just when you could not think the duo of Mc Fullofshit and Doofus Joe could get any worse they reached an all time low last night. The constant hammering of Manny Ramirez is to the point of unprofessionalism on the part of the FOX duo. How many more times do we need to hear about Manny shoving the Red Sox traveling secretary? The story always comes out the same way Manny asked for more tickets to a game the TS said he couldn’t get him anymore and Manny knocked him on his ass. My question is what did the TS say or do to make Manny react that way? Did Manny just knock him down for shits and giggles or was he provoked. I’m not trying to be a Manny apologists here but there has to be two sides to this story.


That’s why this afternoon, if Tim Mc Fullofshit and Doofus Joe don’t go in depth on Brett Myers punching his wife in the face last year in Boston or the fact that Jimmy Rollins had to disciplined by Charlie Manuel twice this season then they are more gutless and vile than I make them out to be. It seems both of these putz’s have an “agenda”


Check this out from the Mets Police. It’s a slide show shot from the top of Shea on the final day. The pics are outstanding.


If there is an afterlife I know one guy I do not want to come back as and that’s Clint Marlarchuk.  


Thanks to Lodge 13 for the props on my rant on $iti Field. It seems the Skill Sets are also slow in refunding the dough they received from fans who bought post season tickets. My advice to those fans is to call Andrew Cuomo,the State Attorney General and advise him of this scam the Skill Sets are pulling.

    I was watching Life on Mars (thanks to you Steve, thanks!) in my family room on the big screen and wife was in next room watching the game and i would peep over and be happy at the 2-0 late in the game and then i heard some loud cheering which I knew was a bad sign, peeped over, saw 3-2, said some choice curses under my breath and finished watching LoM and then played some Call of Duty and then called it a night. Phucking Phillies!!!

    I have to admit, i’d be intrigued at a Rays / Phils world series…I sure would be a Kazmir fan that series!!!

  2. I find myself rooting for the Dodgers, but I have a long lasting hatred for them. My distaste for Philadelphia is much more recent.

    I never liked Boston, but I can’t stand watching baseball indoors. So, I’m rooting for Manny to win it for LA in Boston.

  3. Tim Mc Dickweed and -uck

  4. I just let Mc Fullofshit and Doofus -uck, have it on my blog:

    Also, notice the Picture Background;

    Let’s just say it’s been our home for 45 Seasons, as The 2 magpies are coming from the Ralph Kiner Television Booth.

  5. I wonder if The Ralph Kiner Television Booth and The Bob Murphy Radio Booth are being auctioned off?

  6. Bret Meyers is a shit and I can’t stand watching him win anything. I have not heard either of the morons say anything about Bret’s penchant for beating women yet, but I have not been listening closely. The front-running fans make me nauseous. Good call on that, Steve. Baseball to them is a way to pass the time until their Iggles play. I lives down there for 18 months on a job re-lo, and they have no interest in baseball.And seeing them wave those fucking towels makes me want to barf.

  7. After a brief moment of making sense, kranepool reverts to his revolting liberal apologist self.

    Blame the victim.

    ramirez pushes a 65 year old man down and kranepool wants to know what he did to provoke him.

    really man – you are a fucking freak.

    i bet those two chicks you and omar’s boy burgos killed with his car really deserved it too, in your eyes.

  8. kranepool says:

    Frank, how great was Life On Mars? Just to hear Little Willy by Sweet made my night

    Stork you just amaze me sometimes How was that McCain rally today?

  9. I guess the fact that the Phillies scored 8 runs yesterday without a homerun will be ignored on your website. Well, isn’t that convenient.

  10. In our Pre-Game Chant-Rant at Professor Thom’s In NYC, where our target, The Riviera Bar and Sports Cafe’, took the brunt of Chant-Rants, the “F” Word, and I don’t mean Fiddlesticks or Fudge, was chanted about The Riviera, Freddie and JEFFY:

    I’m amazed by the energy of The Place. & Darling is quite-good in Post-Season on tBS.

  11. the mccain rally was great. he didn’t push any 65 yr old men down, even tho 5 years of torture at the hands of the viet cong = sufficient provocation

    manny ramirez pushed a 65 yr old man down bc he couldn’t get enought tickets.

    kranepool – you amaze me – how was the circle jerk with william ayres and mumia?

    by the way – where does your elderly dad live? i want to go push him down because i had a bad day. that ok with you?

  12. Um, Phanatic? Get a phucking clue: THIS IS A MET FAN WEBSITE!

    We don’t have to be objective. We can hate all over you if we like.

    So go back to your chessesteak hole and STAY THE HELL OFF METS SITES, you phucking troll.
