So, are we feeling 70… 72 wins?
Kyle Scott is the founder and editor of CrossingBroad.com. He works sans pants.
Just want to call it here & now…
The Phillies will lose by 1 run today and the final out will be the Rangers closer striking out the Big Piece w/ a runner in scoring position.
Gonna be a looooong season boys.
Phillies win 64 games.. that is it..
They will score two runs today on 4 hits against the kid making his debut..
Lee will give up 2 runs through 7 and the bull pen will give up 3 more…
The Phillies caught a huge break when Texas scratched Yu Darvish from his start today. But, given how pathetic our offense was down in Florida, scoring runs against ANY pitcher will be a chore. At best the Phils won’t win more than 75 games this season.
And, for the record, “Centerfield” is THE best song about baseball EVER!!
The Phillies will go down quicker than a Villanova NCCA tourney run.
I’m done watching the bums! I have DirecTV and they don’t give in to “Scumcast”! I won’t miss them at all! Ruben has his geriatric team. They might beat the Sixers’ losing streak! Ha! Ha!
They gave us one hell of a run from 2007-2012. What other team in this city delivered that kind of run? Yeah we know they probably aren’t gonna be that good but who cares. At least go out there and support them. What else is there to do? Regurgitate the same Eagles topic all summer? There’s no reason to just abandon this team bc they might have another down year. That is the definition of being a front runner.
This fucking guy.
No one is saying they won’t support them. All we are saying is they will suck ass. Just because you think your team will play poorly, doesn’t mean we don’t support them.
Type OBs… Please stick to ruining hockey for us.
Seems like more people are on my side here loser. But good try. And no one said anything about hockey. Your obsession with me being a hockey continues to creep me out
I’m looking at you right now.
No, seriously, only one person agreed with you and I made a very valid point. Huge difference between being pessimistic and not rooting for the team.
And how can one be, “a hockey”?
If you continue to support the team and not bail out thats good. But theres too many people in this city that just say “oh who cares theyre gonna be awful.” Thats my point. People easily forget how great of a run the Phillies had. On my way to work, Cataldi(my own mistake for even listening) said were not gonna be able to touch on the Phillies today bc of Desean talk. And whys that? its Opening Day after all. Bc he, like many people in this city dont care for a team that is possibly going to be bad. And thats pathetic to me. Thats all my point was. Its not me being “OB” or whatever you wanna call it.
*hockey fan……….and there is plenty of room on the Flyers bandwagon for you now that they are playing well
CM you cockmuncher how’s your prediction of a repeat of Major League/1993 working out? Just because fans acknowledge their team sucks doesn’t mean they are not fans. Fucking stooge.
Apparently you didnt read other peoples comments on here. But okay cool name calling though
I get all the negativity, I really do, but it’s opening day! This is the one (well one of two this year since the Phillies home opener is not until the 7th) day a year that you throw all the facts out the window and just enjoy, if only for a minute, that baseball is back. Yes, Ruben turned a champion to a chump in just 5 years..and that feat is rather amazing. Yes, this team will be lucky to win 75 games, but for just two days, try to close your mind to all that and just enjoy that baseball is back. We will have 160 other games to complain about/not watch.
Grow up, Guys. Its really easy to short the team now after a few mediocre seasons and be pessimistic about the chances this year, but thats how the boom and bust cycle goes. There are a lot of “ifs” right now, but its Opening Day and Lee is on the mound. Give them at least a month before you toss in the towel you fair weather fairies. That’s why you play the damn game.
I have a feeling they’re going to pull a Sixer and sweep Texas. They’ll still only win 65 games though.
I look at the positives of this team going nowhere this season. You can take all the time and money spent on watching or going to games and use it hitting the beach instead. Life could always be worse
Now THAT’s the best comment on here!!!
67 wins for this old pos team
Picture the Titanic leaving Southampton port for its journey to New York. Now picture it being torpedoed and sunk in Southampton harbor. The Phillies 2014 season is going to be ugly.
The Titanic was torpedoed?
Sadly, I believe Marlon Byrd will lead the team in the majority of offensive categories.
That prediction speaks not only to how bad the offense is, but also to how well Byrd plays juiced.
At best the 2014 Phillies are a 75 win team.
I am going to be the only person here to say that the Phillies will win 88 games this year. Mark my words.
88 games of Candy Crush in the dugout, while they’re losing 100 baseball games on the field.
Keep drinking rubes cum buddy
I don’t like Ruben as much as the next one of you jerkoffs, but this team is still solid. Old, yes but solid, no doubt.
They’re so old that not even their stool is solid.
Any more old jokes? Anyone? Bueller?
The NL East blows, that’s about all even the most optimistic of us can cling to. It’s just great to have baseball back and warmer weather on the horizon.
Ok so 7-7 top of the 5th…..
I was wrong.. They are going all the way, winning the world series all based on offense!!
