ANOTHER GREAT CLUTCH AT-BAT BY BOBBY AA-BOO-BOO......

ok where are all those Abreu fans spouting off about his clutch stats???? last night was another prime example of why we need to trade his non-clutch ass for something of value......and ship off "low and away" Burrell too.....he's another dope who can't handle it when the pressure is on......here's another year that the teams "core" veterans wilt under the pressure of a playoff chase in September....real shocker!!!

I just want to say that i've been reading yours (and others) phlogs this season and have really enjoyed the excellent coverage/insights/comments on the phils by yourself and others.
If Monday's game was not depressing enough, last night surely sealed the deal on any final hopes this team had of playoff baseball...
What should have been a 'wild' & celebratory final homestand.. instead became a silent death march towards another October full of questions and doubts about the future of this team.
Almost as disheartening as the entire team's effort at the plate this game, was the lackluster enthusiasm displayed by the fans during the Phil's final at-bats. Though one could hardly be faulted for expecting this sort of ending.. it was sad nonetheless to be one of a handful of persons in my section who seemed to even give a damn that the season was fading right before our eyes.

Thanks for the compliments, sh. Comments like yours are what keeps this site going, especially on tough mornings like this one.

As someone else who was at the game last night, I swear people started leaving in my section when Abreu came up in the ninth (rightfully so it ended up). And while I thought Endy Chavez's game ending at bat versus Houston would be the worst moment of year for me, seeing Bell turn second and face plant at third takes the cake.

I have finally come around to the belief that Abreu should go and I'm curious what people think we should (or could) try to get in return. I'm not that up on the farm system, but I'm thinking a catcher or 3rd base prospect. And there's always pitching - any thoughts?

sorry for the multiple posts - computer screw up

Major-league ready pitching prospects, and a couple of them at that. Catching and third base is also thin.

A fitting end to a goofy season. And I'm sure that we'll be looking at another year of CM running his nice relaxed team and making his stupid or non moves.

What worries me is that we will still have Slow Eddie pulling the trigger on any deals that need to be made this off-season.

Time to get creative in your deal making, Ed!

Great blog as usual Jason.

Creative is exactly right, Oley. They have a number of players they can sell high.

All this talk about getting rid of Abreu is ridiculous. I understand the concept of selling high, but under that logic the Cardinals should getting rid of Albert Pujols any day now.

It's true, Abreu has not come up big when the team has needed him most, and you can make an argument that he's damaging the team's chances by playing hurt. He has not had a great September, at least in terms of average and power. But he's gotten on base at the same rate and has worked out some walks in key situations.

He's still going to finish with the following line: 25-30 HR, .290 BA, .400 OBP, 100 runs, 100 RBI, 30 SB. I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure that's the type of player you want to have on your team.

yes Tim, he does work walks...but at all the wrong times. isnt he's the #4 Friggin hitter? he's supposed to be hitting bombs not trying to work a walk like he did last night before he whiffed to end the game.
and if he's hurt, then he should have sat and put in a healthy player instead. obviously he's being selfish, just thinking about adding to his stats so he can get his usual .300 hollow average every year.

who F-in gives a damn about his individual stat lines, what has it gotten this team?? not to the playoffs for the last 12 years or during the time he's been here.....

THERE IS NO HEART OR BRAINS ON THIS TEAM EXCEPT FOR UTLEY AND HOWARD....STOP DRINKING THE KOOL-AID AND WAKE THE F UP!!!

Easy. Everyone's cool like J-Roll here.

Not sitting Abreu was retarded more because -- what if the Phillies DO make the postseason, wouldn't you rather have a healthy and rested Abreu there for you than a falling-to-pieces Abreu who killed himself getting there?

But, no, god, don't get rid of him from the team. Just sit him this week. It does a Bobby good.

I agree that the Abreu trade talk is absurd. He's the guy you want up there in that situation, provided he's healthy.
