Yo man, I love your site! I live in a suburb of Philly. But I’m from the west coast. And I am a diehard Raiders Fan! Who beat them in the 1981 Super Bowl. These fans are so boorish, hypocritical, and just take things too seriously! Don’t let these people bring you down. Why would people send you messages like that one guy said. Are they looking for blah blah sucks sites!? Anyways, very creative!

Subject: Right on!!!
What’s up? Where do I start and what do I say that hasn’t already been said? I want to start by saying that I saw a wino outside a local bar that was much cheaper than Charlie Manuel, seeing as how money means so much to the management. I’ve seen mentally slow kids with more grey matter than this moron. And somebody should punch Brett Myers around to let him know how it feels. Also, did somebody tell Pat Gillick that his job started before this season? I’m still wondering what the difference was between he and Ed Wade. He hasn’t made any acquisitions or moves except to make Ryan Madson a starter when he was a piece of shit in the bullpen last year.
They should just release the bull pen just like you would a clogged toilet bowl and get rid of all the refuse: Fultz, Franklin, Geary, Cormier, Condrey, Rhodes, Madson, etc. Then they should start getting rid of stiffs like David Bell who’s 0 for 800 and makes an error an inning. You’ve got Bobby Abreu who wouldn’t hustle if you said that his family was being held hostage in exchange for a his catch of a distant flyball! There’s the starting rotation of bowels(enema) because that’s the thing to which it is most comparable. There’s wife-beater Myers, Corey Lidel who can cough up 7 runs at any given moment, Madson who should be a hotdog salesman, Gavin Floyd who they ruined, any AA or AAA pitcher they can call up, John Lieber who bites, Wolfie who should stay out as far as I’m concerned and now the “phenom” or Phenamint Cole Hamels.
Then you take an assessment of their hitting with Pat Burrell who couldn’t hit a beach ball with a 2X4 if it was on a tee, Bell who constantly sniffs his shoulder as though there was shit on it and just looks at pitches then walks off shaking his head, Abreu who should have his paycheck garnished for everytime he leaves runners stranded on base- he’d be penniless. And what does Gary Varsho do besides suck up?
What they should do is gut the team and start new from the higher management down to the farm system. Keep a nucleus of Ryan Howard, J-Roll, Chase Utley, Sal behind the plate and Aaron Rowand in centerfield. They need to get a whole new pitching staff as well as a new manager who actually knows how to play baseball and inspire his players to give the best effort they can possibly give. If the fielders can’t judge depth of a flyball, they should hit 1000’s of flyballs a day to them until they can. If the hitters have a “catch” in their swing then they should spend 3+ hours hitting balls and running around the bases. When a pitcher can’t find the strike zone, the next day he should throw 500+ pitches with every variation of pitch so when he’s out there, he’ll feel comfortable pitching well instead of hitting batters, walking them or surrendering home runs to them. Because I’m SO sick of hearing that one of these pitchers threw 10 pitches the previous game so he’s exhausted. They should sweat as if they were in boot camp. These so-called athletes are getting paid millions of dollars when there are a good majority of people in the main stream who can’t even afford health insurance or work 2 jobs in order to make enough money to pay their rent.
In conclusion, the only way to show our disapproval is to stop attending games. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t follow the sport or watch them on television. You could go to a minor-league game, a semi-pro game, or travel to another stadium. But stop feeding the monster and hurt them where it hurts most- in the pocketbook! If you paid $300 for a TV and got it home and it wouldn’t turn on or weren’t satisfied with the resolution, the equivalent of what these jack-offs are saying on the Phillies is, you bought it and you have the receipt- nobody cares, we’re the only game in town. Screw you, you’re stuck with it!

Subject: Billy King
I’m sitting here watching the NBA Draft tonight and I can’t stand this 76ers team. I am a huge Philly fan. Every sport. But as I am here seeing Marcus Williams fall all the way to the Nets when we could have him at 16 makes me so frustraded. Even bigger, the Grizzlies traded Shane Battier for Rudy Gay which tells me the Sixers could have included some package for Rudy who is going to be a future superstar. Billy should be fired. As much as I hate your site I agree with you on this one Billy King should be fired!
