  1. I guess you could do worse for a 25th man next season than him. Bring him back. I mean they carried Dobbs for 2 years when he was nothing more than lefthanded pinch hitter/occasional starter at 3B and sucked to boot. Surely they can do the same for a righthanded version of him like Sweeney.
    You can really see the hurt in his eyes and Ibanez’s eyes…good players who played on crap teams most of their careers and now finally with a chance to win it all as part of a good team. In some ways maybe the core of this team takes it for granted now.
    Sweeney is a free agent who knows if he gets a job next year it might not be on a good team. I feel for the guy. It makes you appreciate the game as a fan again when you see pro athletes care this much about winning and losing.

  2. Sweeney is the man, I really hope they keep him next year. That guy is pure heart and its hard to find some one like that these days!
    Sweeney For Mayor! You’re the man, Philly really does love what you brought to this team.

  3. Keep Sweeney!! This guy has so much heart!! He should have been at bat rather than Ryan Howard, but we will do it next year!!!

  4. IDK about wanting to have him up there instead of howard at the end of the game, that is a little extreme. BUT where he should have batted, and where CHARLIE mismanaged and lost the fucking game, was bottom 6. Ibanez lead off double. Chooch, bunts him over. Ibanez at 3rd, 1 out. All we need is a fucking fly ball. Idle opportunity for an RBI for a solid contact hitter, like Sweeney. And just our luck. The pitchers spot was up after Chooch. But nope. Charlies dumb ass sends up swing and miss specialist Ben Francisco. And he lives up to his reputation of striking out! Good job charlie, lost the game and the series.

  5. sweeny should of went up to bat in the 9th. he probably would of got a hit or a homer. im sick of howard striking out. hes getting paid 125 million, you think he’d do a lot more.
    hope sweeny stays, i like him

  6. I love his passion but he’s the 25th man on the roster, no disrespect I couldn’t even make a roster. But I want to see Ryan or Shane react like that. This team ripped my heart out last night to the point that I won’t pick up the phone or call my mother. Sweeney ain’t the answer, Ruben Amoro is. Work your magic brother.

  7. I share the sadness. For no one else but for Roy Halladay. I so wanted to see the best pitcher in the majors on the grandest stage his sport has to offer. The man is something we all hope professional athletes are – immaculate in performance, humble in quotes – and they came up just short. Postseason no-hitter is all time, but I wanted Roy Hallday to get to the big stage. It’s why he threw away a life north of the border (not an easy thing to do, just from a human standpoint) to come to this town. And they came up just short. I want to watch Roy Halladay on the big stage, and I’m not sure we will ever see that happen. That’s the saddest thing about tonight.

  8. Hard not to be bitter. This likely ranks second to Eagles-Tampa, given the opportunity squandered and expectations. Just came up so small in so many ways for so many days. Absolutely incredibly small…
    “Golly that was a ducky season” ain’t gonna cut it with the bar set where it is. Guess we just give credit where it’s due (h2o, Madson, one or two others), wait 6 months, and hope the contracts given to Howard and Ibanez don’t sink the ability to grab a few guys to stay competitive…

  9. bring sweeney back, he is a better bench player then anyone else….guy even has batting titles

  10. SWEENEY SWEENEY SWEENEY! That dude is the man, I’m sure he’d take a small salary for this chance again. Class act all the way around and passionate as all hell.

  11. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. But imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this website could undeniably
    be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Fantastic blog!
