Jimmy Rollins in the month of June: .327 AVG, 9 2B, 2 3B, 6 HR, 15 RBI, and one visit to the White House.
We’ll keep from falling into the trap of celebrating mediocrity – the category the Phillies will live in for the next two weeks, at least – but with the looming return of Chase Utley, which CSN is covering like a papal visit, and Jimmy Rollins finally hitting his stride, the lineup looks as thought it may be able to be adequate as we near the second half of the season. Combine that with the fact that the pitching can’t possibly be worse than it has been (relatively speaking), and you have a glass-half-full outlook for the second half.
Again, just trying to be positive.
John Gonzalez wonders how much blame Charlie Manuel deserves:
Kyle Scott is the founder and editor of CrossingBroad.com. He works sans pants.
Looks like garbage in Google Reader which is what I rely on to read this stuff at wor…er… home. I’m sure you would rather have people coming to the site anyways. Just some feedback.
Not a fan of it. Can appreciate trying something new though
I know there are some people who have given up on me. There are some people who have given up on this team,” Utley said. “I’ll be the first one to tell you that I definitely have not given up on myself and our guys have not given up on this year. . . . All it takes is one good bounce our way and things can change.”
CHASE UTLEY! the ballplayer is coming back boys! sound the rally cry! COME ON BOYSSSS!!! LEEEETTTTSSSSS GOOOOOO!!!!!
I can’t stand T-Mac.
My favorite recent qoute of his happened Saturday after the Phillies blew the lead in the 9th.
“THESE GAMES REALLY ARE HARD TO WIN!!”
Yeah, T-Mac, so hard… you idiot.
How Refreshing, i’ll jump in, if this team can get back to playing above average defense, they’ll make the postseason. Everything else will take care of itself.
yeah the new style is a no go, but nice try.
but i may just lose it in my pants when “Kashmir” plays on Wednesday.
This looks horrible on my iPhone. I feel like I’m missing content
Not a fan of new style. A fan of the content though, as always.
I believe TMac and Sarge spent a considerable amount of time talking about which way is better to clean Tommy Bahama shirts.
Whoops. I’m talking about Sunday’s game.
t mac is such a geek
I don’t like how the story doesn’t load all at once. Overall, the “new style” doesn’t do anything besides be technically annoying since the presentation value is not that much different. Oh well, it’s always worth trying something new. Thanks for asking for feedback.
“Wheels, if you just flipped the Phils home record from 17-23, to 23-17, they would be just fine”- Tmac… Seriously?? Its a tough job following a legend like Harry, but if you insist on keeping Wheels, at least get somebody with a sense of humor along side him.
Posting a story by Gonzo makes me not like it. Otherwise, a display of intriguing headlines and/or tweets is a good idea.
I think what really makes EVERYONE pissed about our TV announcers being douches…. is the fact that just about EVERYBODY loves our radio guys, LA and Scotty Franz are great to listen too, hell even Jim Jackson is more bearable. I mean we have great talent in the next booth on the radio, but we get stuck having to watch/listen to Greg Murphy get popcorn thrown at him and wardrobe discussions. Who gives a fuck? I just dont get how the radio boys arent on TV, TMAC must have a gay sex tape with Bill Giles or something
i kinda like the new style
How about them talking about Christmas in July vs. Christmas in June last night?
T-Mac: well, “Christmas in July” just has a better ring to it than “Christmas in June.”
Wheels: Yeah June makes much more sense because it is 6 months from Christmas where July is 5 months away.
That’s one heckuva conversation and some excellent commentary right there. Idk what Phils fans would do without them!
I, for one, would still have my left eye, because I gouged it out while trying to listen to them the other day.
yeah, more on style than content. just trying some things out. make it easier to post links, tweets, videos. would allow for more content in morning wood. forget about the length of today’s. normally, there would be much more.
It looks good on a normal desktop or laptop. Its cleaner and more streamlined.
It sucks and you suck too.
I would be in favor of the TV feed completely dropping the announcers, all of them. Just make the TV video just like a live web cam feed. The only sound would be the crowd, the vendors, and the crack of the bat. Silence would actually be an upgrade as opposed to listening to McCarthy
TMAC trying to tell a story about a conversation with a player in the clubhouse is the worst. I’ve never heard so many “I said” and then “he said” so then “I said” in my life. Dude is brutal
This looks fucking horrible. Way to try something out without even testing it you dumb ass kyle.
Haha, Kyle- ” forget about the length of today’s (Morning Wood)”… How many times have I uttered THAT phrase!!!!!
Whatever it is that’s going on here, it won’t load on the mobile app. Having to bring up the full page is inconvenient.
Not a fan of the new format. Looks like something is missing. Prefer the old format better. Any work on the IOS app?
yea hard to read in this format….dont fix what isnt broken…..
i feel empty inside because i coulnt enjoy the post
I use this site to run out the clock at work and couldn’t see 80% of what was posted. Normally I just can’t view videos. Sometimes change isn’t good! lol At least you tried though.
Don’t like it one bit. I’d stick with the old one.
But I respect trying something new.
