MLB, Jose Fernandez, Miami Marlin’s, Cocaine, Legally Drunk, Boat Crash.

Cuban-born pro baseball player was partying hard after the game. Fernandez had a blood-alcohol content level of 0.147, well above Florida’s legal limit of 0.08. He must have been upset and wanted to be in a altered state of mind.   But I know, I had friends in the 90’s, Pro Baseballs players that did the same thing.  When God calls you back home, you must go.  Prayers.

Cole Hamels, Jonathan Jonathan Papelbon Traded From Phillies.

They took away from me the only players I wanted to view being a Phillies fan in 2015.

I love watching excellent pitching.  Now Ruben go crawl in a hole somewhere out of this area.  You destroyed what is left of the Philadelphia Phillies for what, AA players?  I question these trades. Will these players ever make it to CB Park field?

This fan is so sick emotionally being a die hard Phillies fan ( with my dearest Cousin Marjorie.) Ok, Papelbon was a head case to the media but was also the best closer in baseball at the present. If the Phillies were ahead, I would make sure I watched Paps close.  The movement on his baseballs were incredible. Yes, I know how to call pitches, low, high, outside, inside, curve, fastball.  Hamels, well, a leftie with an MVP and a World Series ring from 2008. Also, last start had  no-hitter.  I am speechless.

I am in mourning. I am in tears. I need grief counseling. Help!

( Sorry Chip, the Birds will not do it for me this year)

Baltimore Orioles Ballpark, Camden Yards, Game Closed To Public, MLB Orioles Vs. White Sox.

Game to be held tomorrow without fans in the stands due to #baltimoreriots.

I cannot believe this is happening in the US.  As a fan you attend ball games to relax, a distraction from your life trials. But it will be empty for approximately 45,961 seats of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

MLB Philadelphia Phillies, Opening Day.

After the bitter cold, snowy and ice filled winter, I thought this day would never get here.

Hamels gets the start and Shane Victorino will make it in the outfield for the Red Sox’s.

Let’s play ball.

Journalists Fans, And Players Discuss Charlie Manuel’s Firing as Philadelphia Phillies General Manager.

This blogger well, is more than upset that #FireRubén Amaro,Jr. ( Please can someone start a twitter account with this hash-tag) did not let Charlie go with respect.  Yes, I am irate.  This is my blog so I can tell you my true feelings. Ruben it is so “BIG OF YOU” to let Charlie win his 1000 game, and let Chooch deliver a home plate autograph by his players in the clubhouse. Big deal. Ruben you could have let Charlie finish 2013 contact season. You deemed the time necessary to change the guard to the clubhouse. Let me get this straight, you put the players on the field, you negotiated their contacts. Charlie did not. Do think this Sandberg guy is the second coming of ******! Really why hasn’t any other team pick him up to be their manager? BTW, The Berg guy doesn’t have a ring either. He seems like he is going to try to lay down the law in the clubhouse? This is 2013, These player make silly money.  They don’t care what you do. You took their manager/friend away without class.  Amaro are you just trying to fill the seats at Citizen Bank Park because  Chip Kelly is across the street with the Buzzfactor Birds?? Ain’t going to work.  Karma is a B*****!  Wait for yours.

Viewing Comcast Sportsnet currently and MLB, and seeing Charlie in Atlanta’s Dugout waiting for the rain to stop. Charlie knew it was his last game as Manager of the Phillies. So Sad. ( and Ruben Fake A** tears @ the beginning of the presser yesterday.) Sportsnet has a highlight reel of Charlie.  It is decent.

I hope the Phillies lose every freaking game left in the 2013 season. Hope the Dodgers extend their winning streak to 9 tonight. I just saw MLB is advertising the game on their channel.  This should look good. Yes, I will root for the opposing team now.  I got that feeling. Screw Rubin #FireRubinAmaro

MLB, Chase Utley,  Signs 2 year Contract, Extension worth 27 million,  a Philadelphia Phillie For Life?

I assume Chase is the leader in the clubhouse.  It is around the same amount of money Chase was getting paid this year. But the question remains, is Rubin going to sign pitcher Roy Halladay?

BTW, Utley had a collision at Home plate last night.  The Phillies still lost last night to the Cubs 5-2 at Citizen Bank Park.

Chase is still nice eye candy while the Phillies are out of the pennant race. JMO.

MLB Philadelphia Phillies Pull Out Win 5-4 Against First Place Atlanta Braves, July 5, 2013.

My cousin Marjorie (another die-hard Phillies Fan) and I decided to do a mental health break and attend a Phillies game.  It was an unbelievable event as Howard took one deep when we were walking late into the Citizen’s Bank. Score was 5-0 in 5th. Then, the Braves started creeping back in the 7th as Lee was having a meltdown. 5-4, Oh no, as Marjorie and I started yelling to the field to our beloved Phillies. Papelbon ( the matador, For Whom the Bell Tolls) and Chooch came in  the 9th and closed down the first place chop chop tomahawk, Atlanta Braves.  ( I always despised that chant)

Praise the Lord for little things in life.

Hope still lies in the Phiilies as they have a long home stand before the All Star Break July 16, 2013 ( BTW, that day is my Birthday)

Excellent seats, great time.  Then we headed to Xfinity Live for Chickie and Pete’s famous Crab Fries.

Below are some photos from the game. Everyone likes their picture taken. ( even the Mets fan sitting with the girl next to us.  He was rooting for the Braves because he hates the Phils. But that was OK. )

All was well at the Ballpark last night.  The Girls (women) didn’t have their children with them. We could yell, yell and yell some more.  They tend to sublimate our limitless amount of energy.

Lee, Phils pick up crucial win over first-place Braves
