Andy Martino is at it Again

I’d like to apologize.

When mentioning Andy Martino yesterday, I failed to recall that he covered the Philadelphia Phillies back in the day. I think I was still living in Georgia back then, and had just watched the Phils win the World Series in Atlanta Braves country, which was kind of cool.

So please accept my apology for the oversight. I will try to #BeBetter moving forward.

To the blog post, then, which involves a couple of new tweets from Martino, who now works in New York:


Hmm.. smells fishy. Scott Boras? Is that you?

The skepticism for anything Martino-related stems from this Tuesday tweet, which curiously came out a short time after the news that Manny Machado had signed with San Diego:

Anyway, Martino could very well be on to something here, I just don’t like the content of his tweets. I don’t like hearing about a “tough road” for the Phillies to sign Bryce Harper. I want an easy road. A direct road. I want the opposite of Robert Frost’s road less traveled by. I want a straightforward path. I want Harper in Philadelphia on a 10 year contract worth $300,000,001. That way Harper gets his money and Boras gets his victory over Dan Lozano.

Time’s yours.

    Unfortunately, Boras wants a victory over every contract ever signed in American sport… Not just a W over little Dan Lozano.

    Also worth noting he loves trolling Mets fans. He’s not really a NY homer.

    When Jayson Stark says Harper doesn’t like Philly, THEN I’ll worry, What? He said that? Oh no.
    Anyway….offer him $340,340,034. He’ll come. He likes money.

    This is the second time in a week this site has used a misanalysis of my famous poem.

    I think Harper is someone the fan base will hate after a couple years. Then we tied to that ridiculous contract.. Let him move it on.

    Boras is all about the $$$. Offer him the most money and Harper signs here. Its pretty simple. If The Phils don’t get him it will only be because our GM doesn’t see the ‘value’ and doesn’t offer the most cash. I’m all for spending smart, but baseball is a salary cap-less sport, and this team has gotten by on the cheap for 5 years now so its time to spend. Trading for Realmuto and signing McCutchen but not coughing up the cash for Harper is like spending money and time building a nice rec room and then refusing to overpay a bit for a big ass top of the line tv.

    Got to admit I am loving the Fanatics Bryce Harper coverage today. Don’t normally listen, but I totally get why 97.5 is #1

    I get it too. I cut my ads from WIP last year when I saw their ratings starting to tank. I’m all in on the Fanatic now, just like everyone else.

    Martino has never gotten over the fact that half the comments on all of his stories on Philly. Com were about he looked like a baby in man’s clothing . So then he grew a beard and the jokes got worst.

    If Phils get Harper, fans will give him a standing O on opening day. And the second he launches his first HR into the right field upper deck, they’ll have quickly forgotten about all of this.
