Yep, it’s all over for my man Fabio Castro. We have to send him down. Trade him. Cut him. Something. Anything. What changed from just a few days ago when I had hoped that he would be on the roster in 2007, and given a primary role in the bullpen? Well, dude gave up a run, ending his 17.1 inning scoreless streak! And he didn’t JUST give up a run, he gave up a double to Carlos Beltran and a walk to Carlos Delgado! His ERA ballooned to 0.49. This young punk needs to learn that he has to be perfect, or else he’s going to find himself the odd man out in this bullpen. We’re getting old dude after old dude in this place, and I’m sure we’re setting our sights on some veteranosity for the bullpen. Maybe we should just let Jeff Conine close out games, if that man knows one thing, it’s playoff baseball!
I’m watching you Fabio, you’re on notice!
Barbaro: Deadspin HOF Nominee.
Remember when I was all for the 7-foot fence that is to be erected around Independence Hall? Well, I’m not sure if you knew it or not, but I was kidding around! I don’t actually want to fence up a symbol of our freedom! And this anti-fence feeling is really picking legs across the internets. First Gort went on the offensive, and now Phillyskyline is actually promoting that people ACT on their feelings about it! Doesn’t this guy know that it’s better to do nothing and complain about it, because then you can always blame someone else!!

And finally: Abraham Nunez just sucks. He’s the worst regular in Major League Baseball. He’s just bad at his job. And the funny thing about this is that he was INSERTED into the lineup after 4 months of wretched ‘play’. (Sportszilla)
