Mike Gill fires off at Phillies
Today's "Sportsbash" began with Mike Gill firing off at the Phillies effort last night and their effort overall. He said that "you cant lose a game to the New York Mets when Roy Halladay is pitching." Halladay was 9-0 vs. the Mets until last night. Mike went on to say that if you are going to have Freddy Galvis up at the major leagues, play him everyday and not sit him in favor of Pete Orr.
Who's to blame?
Mike Gill now wonders as to who is to blame for this slow start to the season. He points to Phillies GM Ruben Amaro, Jr. for not getting the right players on the field while Ryan Howard and Chase Utley are out with injuries. He also recollects on failed transactions Amaro has made in his short time as GM: trading Cliff Lee the first time, signing Cliff Lee as a free agent and not trading Domonic Brown for Roy Halladay. Mike worries that the Washington Nationals are one or two seasons early and are here for the long haul.
1. BUY OR SELL Jim Leyland saying Cole Hamels deserves a 15-game suspension?
2. BUY OR SELL a Andrej Mezaros return helping the Flyers tonight?
3. BUY OR SELL Cole Hamels as "tough?"
4. BUY OR SELL Monday Night Raw last night?
Mike opens up the 4:00 hour with not much confidence in the Flyers beating the Devils tonight. He said there's not much the Flyers can look to improve on the last 3 games as they have gotten their "butts kicked in all facets." The only thing Mike looked at as a positive is the team rallying around the suspended Claude Giroux and playing for him. Both Mike Gill and Ryan Messick wonder as to what the NHL thinks of a player like Claude Giroux saying he wouldn't be suspended if he was thought of as a superstar.
