A-D-A-M E-A-T-O-N. That’s right. Adam Eaton. He’s done it again. What is it with this guy? He can’t hold a lead and can’t seem to get out of the first couple of innings without giving up runs. Aaarrrggghhhh? Mainly because of him the Phils are now once again tied for first place with the Mets. Ggggggrrrrr!!! The Phils need to dump him during the off season, three years contract be damn!!!! This guy was suppose to help the Phils get into the playoffs. Well, he certainly step up today, didn’t him? I know, I know, those two runs that the Nationals scored late in the game was what did the Phils in, but if Adam had come out and do his job in the first place, the Phils would probably never have been in the situations that lead to those two runs being scored in the second place. GGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRR!!!! I don’t think Adam’s problem is physical as much as mental. Why do I think that? How else do you explain him not going for the third out in the top of the second inning so that Washington’s pitcher would be the first one coming to bat in the third inning. But NNNNNOOOOOO!!! He walked the 8th batter, and then the pitcher, the pitcher, got a hit. Luckily, he was able to get out of the inning, thanks to a foul pop. But, I knew it was only a matter of time before he was removed by the manager. And, he was, in the third.
I am poed, I am angry, I am so…Did I mentioned that I was mad??? AAAARRRRGGGGGHHHH!!!!!
Anyway, I am going to be hoping that the players will be coming out tomorrow on fire and tear the Nationals apart while the Mets drop another one so that the Phils will win the pennant and prevent the need for a one game playoff.
