status or penalized, I am sure many of you have checked out your own status on
the NEW
October Listing
at the MLBlogosphere
provided by our fearless leader the illustrious Mark of MLBlogs.
(enough sucking up for one day)

As with most people you scanned the list to see where your own ‘BLOG’
had landed on the final list of the season, then you went down to the comments
section, added your usual complimentary comment and moved on. How many actual
pay attention to the list of blogs other than where it concerns your blog?

How many would notice an anomaly in the list, I’m not talking
about ‘Confessions of a
She Fan’
not being at number 1, or ‘Red
State Blue State’
not being at number 2, (although they did lose that
status last
month
).
I am talking about things like the numbers at the bottom of the
‘Fan Blog’ list having 2 number 44’s and being out of order or even a less recognized
blog in the community being moved from the ‘Fan Blogs’ to the ‘Pro Blogs’
listing, who would actually notice that….?

So now all that’s left to find out is ‘what do I get ?’, now my
blog has ‘PRO’ status, do I get a cute ‘MLB PRO BLOG’ logo for the top of blog
page, or do I get erased from the list quietly, without a ripple being created
in the world of MLBlogs, or maybe just nothing happens and I remain in obscurity
at the bottom of a list of names….


Who’s Following Who ….

becoming fairly clear as I peruse the blogs of known Yankees and Phillies
bloggers that a clear message is being portrayed. A projection of disdain emanates
from almost all those blogs towards the team that beat the team they supported
in the LCS. There is a continuing lack of restraint in portraying feeling of
contempt towards the respective teams. So it appears most of the Phillies fans
will be rushing to throw their screams and rally towel waving behind the Texas
Rangers, while those Yankee fans will be openly chanting and willing the San
Francisco Giants to be successful.

With there still being another day before the World Series
starts I have to ask, how is Fox attempting to maintain an interest level in
this pending World Series match up, personally I don’t know cause I haven’t
watched Fox or TBS since the Phillies game last Saturday. In addition to blogs
offering some colorful, possibly defaming descriptions of either of the teams or
their players that will participate in the World Series, it seems the other
topic most covered is the lack of ratability this match up is going to give Fox,
it seems that it may be broadcast mostly for the eastern prime time slots, where
the majority of the fans are slowly developing a ‘we don’t care’
attitude, due to the involvement of teams from the west.

Due to a request by ‘kaiserthegreat’
I have updated the disappearing logo image, yes he’s a Giants fan and there
is a chance he just wanted me to show the image with the Phillies faded out, but
quite honestly I don’t give a f***, because lets face it, every now and then you
have to let the insignificant teams win things, plus knowing what it’s like to
get all the way to the World Series and then lose, the Giants fans need to amass
all the glory they can before the Rangers embarrass the hell out of them.

As a disgruntled Phillies fan, I am entitled to be a part of
Phillies fan base that has leapt to the support of the Rangers and therefore the
demise of the Giants, besides I want to see if winning the World Series knocks
Hamilton off his wagon.


Is McGwire on PED’s again ?

– PhilliesOutside –

The Phillies returned home yesterday and
took some rest, more like some, gather my thoughts time, and while some
players were probably reflecting on how best to ignite the offense, so they
don’t end up with a sell out ‘boo-bird’ stadium this weekend, others I am
sure were checking out the Rollins’ Basebowl Tournament, an event J-Roll
hosts every year, I just hope he played it safe with his calf injury and took no
risks.

The San Diego Padres are in town for the
weekend, it seems like the Phillies are
getting no breaks, they just got off a road trip, which put them in all the over
sized ball parks with hot teams and now they get home to host another hot
team
in the Padres, if they can break
out of this, whatever it is, over the weekend then they will deserve
every run and hit they get against this Padres
team that is currently dominating the West.

Other news in baseball, it seems that Mark McGwire has been at it
again, yep you guessed it, this time he can’t deny it, cause there is no way in
hell a guy like him knocks up a chick like his wife and then she has triplets,
all girls on June 1st, yep gotta believe he was poppin’ the blue ones. On a side
note, that I didn’t pick up on at the time and haven’t seen mentioned anywhere,
yes I know Stephanie McGwire is his 2nd wife, but she was a pharmaceutical rep
when they met, is that weird or is it me.

The most important news from yesterday around MLB, was actually here
in the Blogosphere, not it’s not the fact that the Blogosphere’s
front page depicted the almost perfect game, but at the time chose not to depict
Roy Halladay’s actual perfect game, it isn’t the fact that the Blogosphere’s
front page went through a quick change to cover the retirement of "KG
Jr."
, it wasn’t even the fact that after yesterday’s post I managed to
get through the day without having my blog cancelled by ‘The Man’ Mark Newman,
who’s really a nice guy, (sucking up), or the  geeky guru powers at
his disposal within the Blogosphere… No people this event almost
got my WTF award for June, it is definitely still in the running, depending on
the rest of the month, this earth shattering event happened at none other than RSBS
I hear you ask, what other than Jeff falling off a female sCrUBS fan in a
drunken stuper, could possibly be earth shattering at RSBS
– Well I have the proof in pictures, for all of you who are familiar
with the escapades of Jeff and Al, you’ll know that both try to alternate posts
on the blog, but it seems Jeff is the only one who knows how to comment, well I
have the proof…..

….that’s definitely AL’s handtyping, I have it on good
authority and if you want to see the evidence for your self just click the link
at the end and scroll down to the 5th comment…. click

Time to get ready for the Phillies vs Padres and hopefully the
next big news story will be the Phillies breaking out of this…

……what ever it is


Good, Bad or just some of the Same

– PhilliesOutside –

Same sh-it different day…. Yes the Phillies are in the middle of
that time
of the month
‘, actually they are now on the tail end of it, with just 5 days
left, they have to get through the last few days with minimum damage to the
players and their psych, they have a couple of wins to bag before the end of the
month, then it’s all new, the month of June arrives and it all starts again.

In this time of phunks and stupidity, they have nearly been no-hit, they have
struggled to score runs, they
have even struggled to get hits. Jimmy Rollins has struggled to stay off the DL,
Ryan Madson is still wishing he hadn’t kicked that chair, while Brad Lidge is
thankfully still on the DL, although he keeps telling everyone his elbow is
fine, Really? isn’t that what you said last year.

Charlie Manuel has been keeping his cool, with a few changes here and there
to the line up, sometimes not making any sense to me, but that’s what baseball
is all about, being able to find those things that the manager does that doesn’t
seem to jive with the rest of what’s going on. It’s also good that you can see
things that you feel you would have done differently, lets face it, if you agree with
everything someone does all the time then you have to be brainless or just plain
stupid
, yeah okay you could be a (insert political party of your
choice)
,
but
we are talking baseball and that means June will see the world of fastballs,
sinkers, sliders and change-ups get a strange jolt in the equilibrium which will
see the baseball planets align once again and settle into a more balanced
universe.

At
a time when the All Star voting is well under way, the Phillies catcher
Carlos
Ruiz
suffered a knee injury earlier this month, is now back off the DL, but is
still suffering from some aches and pains, in an effort to try and change things
around he tried out a new catchers mask, going from the traditional to the
hockey style, needless to say by inning 3 he was back to his original style
mask. Charlie Manuel even sat him out of last nights loss, just to give him a
rest.

All the favorites seem to be in the running for the All Star Voting, but is
this proving it’s just a popularity contest and teams with fans that attend home
games actually punch that ticket, or they have fans that go online and vote.
Recently on the front page of the MLBlogs
(it’s gone now) they promoted the All Star voting and some blogs that
appeared to have relevant posts about the voting, one in particular, which I
will not name, due to probably selfish reasons, but the point being this blog
had 1 post, no bio, and looked as though it had been set up just for that
specific post, the post indicated views and selections the poster had made for
the All Star game, this was not an objective review, but a promotion of Yankees
and Reds players, where am I going with this, just trying to show some elements
of things where this has become nothing more than a popularity contest, or at
the worst a contest where players get selected because the fan base for that
team is larger, i.e. Yankees in the AL, the NL has a little more even
distribution of fan base amongst some teams, although teams like Florida,
Milwaukee and Washington will always lose out. 

Am I someone who sees a conspiracy in everything, maybe not everything, but
in today’s world probably most things that include some type of opinion based decision
has an ulterior motive, but that’s a whole new post, maybe even my next one.

We all think we know which State has some type of mojo working
against it, well I am here to tell you that the worst has to be Ohio, not
because I live there, although that maybe the problem, because they really can’t
win anything. The Cavs should have been in the NBA finals, with the players they
had, they were definitely the hot favorites to take it all, and some saw it
again last night, or those people that had nothing better to do with their
lives, saw what I am told was a guaranteed win for a girl from Ohio lose to some
guy with less talent in the final episode of American Idol with the only judge
who offered a real opinion. So for all people and teams Ohio based why bother,
oh okay.. it’s all in the fun of competing… yeah right…

 


Media just love the Yankees

LCS kicks off tomorrow with the Phillies and Dodgers, this series in itself should be full of some amazing games. Since the division series games fizzled with commanding sweeps and the only real intense excitement was the ending of the last 2 games between the Rockies and the Phillies, then the fans should hope for and expect both the ALCS and NLCS to be jam packed with intense exciting moments as a build up to the World Series… but will they, as I read and watch the stories that take us up to the start of the LCS games the thing I notice is the New York Yankees, that’s it nothing else. Some by line, small print or 2 minute segment may include a brief look at the Angels, Dodgers and at times the Phillies, but everything seems to be centered around the Yankees, even the opening page of these MLB Blogs has a headline indicating 4 teams in the LCS yet pictures just 1 rotation, and they highlight a New York MLB Blog which focuses on the Yankees rotation, okay so they mention in passing other teams, but it’s about the Yankees. I am beginning to believe that they spent so much money on the team and stadium that they are now stuck for advertising and so are taking hand-outs from all sources.

Leaving others struggling for scraps…

 

Causing confusion amongst the remainder… 

Or maybe the lack of spotlight is giving the others chance to gather their thoughts for the games ahead and sleep off some of the pressure

(incase your wondering, it’s a high pressure bed with some eye candy of course)

It could always just be something plain and simple, like the sports media are all full of hot air...

 

and need the Yankees to draw attention to themselves. They can speculate all they want about ex-Yankee manager vs. current Yankee manager or an all LA World Series, unlike some other orchestrated sports the media does not control the outcome to increase ratings,

it will be, what it will be
