    His parents knew he was going to be so bad ass that they named him “Cliff Lee Pitcher.”

  2. Greg Legg says:

    Ironically, Chris Hansen also busted Larry Jones, Jr. when he said that he wanted to blank the Hooters waitress in her blankety-blank-blank.

  3. Amandah says:

    Today’s game isn’t even going to be much of a contest. Ever see the movie “The Accused”? The Phillies offense is going to play the roll of the rapists and Tommy Hanson will play the role of Jodie Foster’s forced open bologna flaps on top of the pin ball machine.

    Tommy Hanson: the most overrated pitcher in the NL

  5. OMG says:

    these fox announcers are the worst, even worse then t-mac and wheels.

  6. Franny Murt says:

    Since I live on the wrong coast, I get to watch the Padres/Dodgers game on Fox. Sucks out loud.

  7. Deli Guy says:

    That is even worse, just had a guy walk in my store and ask if that was chipper at bat, he seemed thoroughly disparaged that chipper was on the DL with knee surgery, probably and atl homo. sure sounded like it.

  8. Franny Murt says:

    Did Cliff Lee just hit a home run?

  9. Bryan says:

    Had to come inside to post. Heard the homer on the radio, Franske gave me goosebumps. CLee is fucking awesome.

  10. steppy says:

    Fuckin’ A right he did.

  11. Deli Guy says:

    CLIFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF LEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, haha, loved hearing jairs retarded ass go ooohh nooo.

  13. SAID says:

    Ohhhhhh you rearry rika da Criff Ree!

  14. Foreskin Mills! says:

    Some has to gif Chooch’s reaction

  15. Brad says:

    F the west coast. Stupid dodgers padres…I miss lee’s homer.

  16. Riptor says:

    Can we get the spanish announcer’s call on that home run please?

  17. Deli Guy says:

    ever use myp2p? i watch all the phils games while im at work on the other register while im ringing people up.

  18. derrick says:

    Now watch him win the game with his lone run

  19. Franny Murt says:

    Clifton is his own offense.

  20. Al Jazeera says:


  21. Greg Legg says:

    Freddie Freeman’s picture is a combination of him being slightly retarded (it explains his pop) and staring at the sun, also a product of being retarded.

  22. Talking Chop says:

    If the Braves didn’t make bad managerial decisions and blow saves, they would be in first! Phillies are just lucky! STFD!

  23. Deli Guy says:

    come on jim jim

  24. new guy says:

    i swear im starting to not like Ryan Howard anymore, he catches that foul ball, Gonzales ass is sitting down right now, and it’s two outs, WTF?

    • Greg Legg says:

      Howard’s always been a mediocre at best fielder. You either learn to live with it or freak out when stuff like this happens.

    • BadMotherFutley says:

      Which was fine when he was more than a slightly above average hitter.

    • TheOtherJim says:

      Seems like all he does is K in clutch situations anymore.

    • Greg Legg says:

      Guy has 71 RBI. I’ll allow one or two losses due to his fielding, because more than one or two wins happened based on his runs batted in.

  25. new guy says:

    Aint this a BITCH! god, fuck this offense, fuck Howard and fuck those stupid ass Braves fans doing that retarded chop

    • Greg Legg says:

      Eh, you win some, you lose some. Still 2.5 ahead of the Braves with two games in hand.

    • new guy says:

      yeah your right, it’s just i hate it when you have a winnable game and it gets thrown away sometimes, but as long as the braves are looking up at us still i’ll take that anyday

    • Greg Legg says:

      Definitely right, and what happened is what usually happens when you have a big inning yet can’t push across a run. The good news is that the Phils have another All-Star pitcher starting tomorrow, whereas the Braves have an alcoholic. I like those odds.

    • Danyiel says:

      You mean the alcohoic that almost no-hit us the last time we faced him? On paper, yeah, we should be able to win the game tomorrow, just like we really should have won this game today. But on paper never seems to translate to one in the actual win colum with this team for some reason. It just defies logic how the fuck we can’t win games against mediocre pitching, yet manage to light up guys like King Felix. Cliff Lee dieserved to win this game today, but as usual they were one big hit away from sealing the deal.

  26. TheOtherJim says:


    Pretty sad when your pitcher has the only RBI and only hard hit ball of the game.

  27. Talking Chop says:

    that’s what happens when you face the best closer in baseball ever! I’m personally insulted the entire Braves line up isn’t in the All Star game! The media hates us and loves Philly!

    brb gotta go look at shirtless Dan Uggla photos

    • Danyiel says:

      Hit!!! McCann!!! Green Light!!! STFD!!!

      LOL I wonder if they do that racist ass chop at home whenever one of them reaches base…

  28. Greg Legg says:

    Chipper Jones cheated on his wife with a Hooters waitress. And the fans love him. That tells me everything I need to know about the south. My only disappointment is that Sherman didn’t salt the earth after he burnt it to the ground.

    • Danyiel says:

      Chipper Jones is the prototypical southern wife-beater type that Braves fans can relate with, though. It makes sense that they would love that piece of shit, just like they loved that wife beater Bobby Cox.

    • el barto says:

      you sir have just been nominated for hater of the year with that one. congrats

    • the new guy says:

      LOL there all a bunch of inbred Southern retards who idolize anyone who supports wife beating, sleeping with relatives and drinking all day and causing chaos in the night

  29. el barto says:

    that didnt sound as complimentary as I wanted it to – love the hate.

  30. Greg Legg says:

    I’m going to leave this right here in preparation for tomorrow’s big Phils win.

  31. Sweaty says:

    Offense did cliff lee & his 1st hr dirty

  32. Kung Fu Fightins says:

    why didnt sherman destroy atlanta when he had the chance during the civil war……

  33. ryan howard says:

    my big black dick got in the way, sorry.

  34. Chucko says:

    I already said this in the previous game’s comment section, but I’m going to say it again. God, I love you guys and I love this blog.
