Weekend of Woe Had Better Be a Thing of the Past

Yeah, it’s Tuesday already, and I’m still so disgusted by the level of ineptitude that was on display during the recent sweep of the Phillies at the hands of the Marlins, that I don’t even know where to begin ranting.

Mediocre pitching…check.

Runners stranded in scoring position with two outs…plenty of those.

Runs batted in with two outs…only one.

Overall lack of power hitting…yep, only two homers in three games, and none by the meat of the lineup.

Sloppy defensive play… that was there, too.

A centerfielder thrown out of the game for expressing displeasure with the home plate umpire, while still in the field… that’s a new one, but there it was.

Since it’s nearly impossible to point the finger at any one player for this disastrous series, I hereby bestow the Big Wienie Award to the entire team.
