The Nats, their coaches, front office members, and fans have been talking a healthy dose of smack this winter. Today, it pains me to tell you that you can now add Brad Lidge to that list.
Here’s what Lidge said in fluffy video posted on Nationals.com:
“[The Nationals are] probably the most talented team I’ve ever been on, and I’ve been on some great teams. So I’m very impressed with that– very young and very exciting.”
Oh for fuck’s sake. Not you too, Brad. Goddammit.
– throws 2008 World Series frame on the floor, watches it break into a million pieces –
Excuse me for a minute:
You were invisible! Transparent to any and all mean-spirited criticism. 48-for-48! Undetected by reactionary fans when you were awful in 2009 and battled through high-priced injuries in the three seasons following the World Fucking Championship (I capitalize that shit around here, Bradley!). Forever beloved in Philly for the lasting image of you dropping to your knees and hugging our Panamanian catcher. You were perfect to us. For one season– perfect. You hear me? Perfect! PERFECT!!!
A safe house in Washington offered you shelter in the twilight of your career. An escape to the lowly Nationals. Brainwashed in a matter of weeks. Spitting crimes against the Homeland. Believing extremist doctrine. Dammit, Brad. The next thing you know you’re going to be fucking Claire Danes and screaming out Wilson Ramos’ name in your sleep. Fuck!
I knew it, Saul. I fucking knew it! Brad's the enemy now.
I'm done. The video is after the jump.
