I wonder, can we trade for Adrian Gonzalez?

So, you think there was an iota of intelligence behind that post?

Choose wisely.

He did bat .338. I know his contract is like Howard's but he's a more consistent hitter. Just saying.

I remember all the people saying "We don't need offense with our pitching"

I don't pretend to know (or like) anything about baseball but... really?

EDIT: These "fans" probably know as much about baseball as I do

I seriously hope this rubs into Howard's psyche so hard that he won't ever suck again...

Get rid of Howard and move Utley to first. Ibanez, Oswalt, and Lidge are gone.

Polanco just cannot stay healthy. Rollins is gone.

We're hosed. So so hosed.

When was the last time Utley played first for a while? I remember he had several games over there.

Can't even count how many people predicted Halladay giving up a couple hits leading to 1 run, and the Phils offense not getting anything.

Ibanez, Lidge, Oswalt are all gone, and pretty much all of our backups and bullpen guys are up too. Got to find a way to resign Cole and Pence. Madsen is looking more and more like a longshot I wouldnt mind seeing Valdez and Mayberry back.

And finally, if he isn't injured long term...I wouldn't mind moving Howard for a couple prospects, and throwing the bank at Pujols or Fielder.

I didn't realize Fielder was a free agent. I would definitely go for either. Lidge... if he doesn't want much, I wouldn't mind seeing him again. Madson... I wouldn't mind him back either. We just need more 7th and 8th inning guys that don't **** the bed. No Baez, no Herndon, and so on. Bastardo I'd like to keep. Maybe try to pick up Saito?

Also, don't we have Pence for another year? We also have Hamels for at least another year.

I don't even know what to say, I mean, i knew they sucked at hitting, but I never expected them to get shutout..... especially in game 5..... it's just, ugh, so frustrating

Halladay -

I dont think anybody will be stupid enough to trade for Howard. They must lockup Hamels and let Rollins walk.

You couldn't get a case of powdered gatorade right now for Howard and his 4/100m contract.

The feeling I have in my gut is indescribable. So sick.

What a frigging shame to go out like this. I do not want to hear about the other pitchers pitching good. We need to hit better in the clutch. Game two up 4-0 was the killer in this series. I just wish we can move Howard for someone who can hit for a decent average. I am just upset by his act. I am still in shock...later

Well, your post was so stupid that was about all we could do with it. In spring training it looked like Utley was on the verge of forced retirement.

So, yeah, his production was down...
