What CanYou Say?

24 Apr

What can you say about a team that can’t score a single run in support of a brilliant outing by their ace pitcher still trying to notch his first win?

What can you say about a team that struck out six times against a pitcher who only had six strikeouts the entire season?

What can you say about a team that couldn’t get a hit with runners in scoring position if they were batting off of a tee?

What can you say about a team that goes scoreless for six innings against the oppositions’ fifth starter who has a 2-7 career record and entered last night’s contest with a 5.67 ERA and no ( count ’em, zero) career scoreless starts to his name.

What can you say about a team that gets a leadoff triple followed by a hit batsman but still can’t manage to eke out a single run?

What can you say about a team who has scored three runs or fewer in 13 of its 21 games including just four runs in Cole Hamels’ last three outings?

What can you say about a team whose 69-year-old manager thinks he could have gotten a hit off the pitcher they faced last night:  “If I went up there and looked fastball, I would have gotten good balls to hit. 

So what does manager Charlie Manuel say?

“You have to get it done.  Baseball is a game where what you did last year doesn’t count. If you don’t hit, the first thing that someone does when you go bad is look for someone [else] that can hit.”

Well, all I can say is I hope they’re looking

    What you can say you can’t print in a family blog. It seems as though Hamels is this years Lee.
    On the brighter side what will you get with the swear money?
