And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

May 24, 2012, 8:28 AM EST

Kansas City Royals v New York Yankees Getty Images

Yankees 8, Royals 3: Alex Rodriguez would like the New York sporting press to write more career obituaries for him. It seems to suit him nicely (2 for 4, 2 HR, 3 RBI).

Reds 2, Braves 1: Todd Frazier hit a walkoff homer. It came off  Cristhian Martinez because, as everyone knows, Fredi Gonzalez would be drummed out of the managers’ guild if he had actually used his best reliever in a tie game in the ninth inning. The Reds are surging, winners of five straight.

Rays 5, Blue Jays 4: Another walkoff, this one a double from B.J. Upton (a.k.a. “Flash”)  in the 11th.

Mets 3, Pirates 1: Jon Niese allowed one run in 7 and two-thirds, bouncing back from some craptastic starts.

Red Sox 6, Orioles 5Daniel Nava and Kelly Shoppach hit sixth-inning homers, breaking what had been a 2-2 tie. The Sox are back to .500 and they took two of three from the first place O’s.  Now, if form holds, they’ll cruise into first place for the bulk of the summer and then everyone can write some “will they collapse again?” stories in late August.  Nice to have the summer planned out like that, yes?

Phillies 4, Nationals 1: Cole Hamels was on-point, taking a no-hitter into the sixth, shutting out the Nats for eight innings and ending the Phillies losing skid. And no, no one threw at anyone or otherwise acted like a jackwagon.

Cardinals 6, Padres 3: On a night when I watched the Cardinals double-A team beat the Padres double-A team, the Cardinals major league team beat the Padres, well, sure, I suppose we can call them a major league team. They had a 3-0 lead in the first inning, but that was all they’d get. Carlos Beltran hit his 14th home.

Diamondbacks 11, Dodgers 4: If you have to end your winning streak, end it big. The Dbacks had 14 hits. Willie Bloomquist of all people had three. Joe Saunders struck out seven.

White Sox 6, Twins 0: Chris Sale shut ‘em out for seven. Paul Konerko hit a homer. Apparently Konerko played for the San Antonio Missions once too back when they were a Dodgers affiliate. I like that the Missions honor their old players who were there when there was a different affiliation. Not ever minor league club does that. The Missions seem to say “MLB teams come and go in these parts; we’ll always be here.”

Astros 5, Cubs 1: That’s nine straight losses for Chicago. This is starting to look like a historic season for the Cubbies.

Rockies 8, Marlins 4: Troy Tulowitzki homered and drove in four. After the game he said this was “a big win for us.” I suppose all wins are big, but I’ll get more excited when the Rockies are less than 13 and a half back.

Indians 4, Tigers 2: After seeing that they loaded the bases with no one out in the eighth and didn’t freaking score, I’m searching for something good to say about the Tigers right now. How about: “well, their streak of not being shutout is still intact.”  Cleveland, on the other hand has lots going for them. Like Jason Kipnis, who had three hits and then bloodied his arm up really good when he slid into home in the eighth inning with the go-ahead run.

Mariners 5, Rangers 3: In what I’m going to take as a sign that no team is going to be a total juggernaut this year, Seattle took two of three from the Rangers. From the game story: “Alex Liddi hit the first major league grand slam by an Italian-born player in a half-century.” OK, then.

Angels 3, Athletics 1Alberto Callaspo hit a go-ahead two-run double in the 11th. Ernesto Frieri continues his good work.

Brewers 8, Giants 5: Remember a few weeks ago when people were starting up that “Hey, Barry Zito may have finally figured it out!” stuff?  Yeah, let’s just shelve that until he has two or three good starts again next year. The Brewers unloaded on him for eight runs — only four earned — in three innings.

    “…I suppose we can call them a major league team.”

    OUCH!!

    • sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - May 24, 2012 at 10:21 AM

      I would say that was mean if it were not also magnanimous. Really, it takes some generosity of spirit to call that an MLB team at this point.

      • antlerclaws - May 24, 2012 at 10:42 AM

        Sounds like Houston the last couple of years prior to this (surprising) year. People were calling them the AAAstros.

      • drmonkeyarmy - May 24, 2012 at 10:49 AM

        How would one pronounce that? Would it just be an elongated A sound? Like AAAAAAstros? Or like A-A-A-Astros?

      • b7p19 - May 24, 2012 at 10:59 AM

        I’m tempted to suggest that they just switch with the San Antonio Missions. Or at least call up the puffy taco. They would probably be able to trick a few college kids into buying tickets to the game…

  2. The Baseball Idiot - May 24, 2012 at 8:40 AM

    No love for Scott Podsednak, who hit the game-winning homer after spending a year and a quarter in the minors. Mostly because guys who hit singles and steal bases aren’t real major leaguers anymore.

    He’s also married to a former Playmate.

  3. cleverbob - May 24, 2012 at 8:44 AM

    After witnessing the booing of Harper first hand, I’d say it was half-hearted at best. I think the fans were just disappointed that Werth is out, and needed someone else to boo.

    • Utley's Hair - May 24, 2012 at 10:53 AM

      Booing Werth makes next to absolutely no sense whatsoever, either. The guy was a huge part of breaking the postseason famine, and of the Phightins making two consecutive World Series. The first one or two times, might be okay, but it’s long past time to stop that nonsense. He did what anybody would do in his situation. It’s time to get over it. For Werth…and Drew. Hell, for some damn reason, Phans boo Stephen Drew, and that’s just idiotic.

      • drmonkeyarmy - May 24, 2012 at 10:56 AM

        I find the booing of Stephen Drew to be hysterical…because like you said, it is ridiculous. Shit, Stephen and JD could probably run into a burning building saving 10 kittens, Allen Iverson, Mike Schmidt, Bernie Parent, and Brian Dawkins in the process and the phans will still boo them. At this point, I think they boo for the sake of booing and don’t really even know why.

      • cleverbob - May 24, 2012 at 11:08 AM

        A wise philosopher once said, “Gotta nuke something”. The same applies to booing, even if for no other reason than a good natured ribbing. My personal favorite is when we boo ourselves for dropping foul balls. Meta-booing!

  4. digitaldonnie - May 24, 2012 at 8:47 AM

    Can’t wait for the Phillies fans to start making a big deal about this win. I mean going 1-3 in that series is a good sign the Phils are turning it around. In the mean time the Tribe keeps proving to all the “experts” that picked Detroit to run away with the AL Central, wrong. GO TRIBE!!!!!

    • heyblueyoustink - May 24, 2012 at 8:53 AM

      “GO TRIBE!!!!!”

      Thus your petulant nature is explained. I now find myself pitying you.

      • Chip Caray's Eyebrows - May 24, 2012 at 8:56 AM

        You’re both pretty sad cases, at least in this particular instance.

      • heyblueyoustink - May 24, 2012 at 9:28 AM

        Hey man, I got my Boston Cream Donut this morning, I’m a pretty happy fellow i’ll have you know.

    • delawarephilliesfan - May 24, 2012 at 8:58 AM

      Got yourself in such an anti-Phillies lather you can’t do the math right.

      Easy….deep breath…..

    • Utley's Hair - May 24, 2012 at 10:55 AM

      I would say that going 1-3 in the series would be pretty notable…ya know…what with it being a three-game series and all…jus’ sayin’ is all…

      I’m still waiting to hear how that bridge looks from underneath.

  5. uyf1950 - May 24, 2012 at 8:56 AM

    Very nice game by all the Yankees especially A-Rod. Andy Pettitte looks like he never left the game for that year already and it was only his 3rd start of the season. That’s a great sign for the rotation. With CC and Hughes having some very good starts of late that’s what the Yankees need. Now if only Nova can get back to his 2nd half form of 2011 and Kuroda can give the Yankees some quality starts, that would all be a bonus. It seems like quite a while since the Yankees had a relatively easy game and the 8-3 victory wasn’t a heart stopper for us Yankee fans.

    • randall351 - May 24, 2012 at 9:30 AM

      I would say that going up against someone who is making their Major League debut when they were carrying a 4.00 ERA in Triple AAA would help any team look better.

      • yankeesfanlen - May 24, 2012 at 9:54 AM

        So someone put a gun to Ned Yost’s and Dave Eiland’s head and MADE them do it?

      • The Baseball Idiot - May 24, 2012 at 9:57 AM

        Yeah, the GM, Dayton Moore, who actually makes the decision while Ned Yost stands by and lets him. The Royals have also proven that they don’t know how to handle a pitching staff many times.

      • uyf1950 - May 24, 2012 at 10:29 AM

        randall – If you knew much about the Yankees you would know that traditionally they don’t do very well against pitchers they haven’t seen before that includes rookies. So if anything their performance last night is actually better then I stated. But regardless all any team can do is play the team and the pitchers that are on the schedule that night. Some you win some you lose, last night the Yankees won with a soon to be 40 year old pitcher who didn’t pitch at all in 2011 and a soon to be 37 year old 3rd baseman that most have been writing off for at least 3 years. So let’s give credit where credit is due, my friend.

      • randall351 - May 24, 2012 at 10:38 AM

        ufy- If you knew much about the Royals you would know that traditionally they are awful and they don’t do very well against most pitchers including those who have taken a year off.
        So I would still be taking a Yankee win over the Royals with a grain of salt and not understate the fact that the Yankees should be expected to win a home series vs the Royals, my friend.

      • uyf1950 - May 24, 2012 at 10:49 AM

        Randell – are you talking about a KC Royals team that so far this year has winning records against the: Rangers 2-0 , White Sox 2-1 , and Red Sox 2-1 (with one of those wins being against their ace Lester on May 9th). They also have wins against teams like Cleveland and Detroit among others. I don’t think you give them enough credit, my friend. In my book any win is a good win.

      • randall351 - May 24, 2012 at 10:58 AM

        uyf – now you’re starting to sound like Rex Hudler.

      • uyf1950 - May 24, 2012 at 11:50 AM

        Randall – he’s obviously a man wise beyond his years.

    • yankeesfanlen - May 24, 2012 at 9:52 AM

      Uyf of course agree that talk of the Universe’s demise are greatly exaggerated. These early season blips don’t concern me.
      Memorial Day at .550 is usually about right.

  6. spudchukar - May 24, 2012 at 9:01 AM

    Lance Lynn chalks up his league-leading victory number 7, with some guy named Hamels, who I believe is mostly known for his foolish beaning and subsequent comments of future superstar Bryce Harper. Newly recalled Matt Adams contributed with an opposite field double that nearly reached the bullpen and another laser into right, plus two other bullets, one that sent the Padre right fielder to the fence. The dude can hit, despite his less than svelte frame.

    Beltran’s league leading 2 run bomb put the Red Birds ahead, and Freese also homered as he seems to be awakening from a late May slumber. Furcal continues to dazzle in the field, Molina threw out another base runner silly enough to test his arm (at what point will they learn?) and the DL-laden Cards sit 6 games over .500 with the woeful Phillies coming to town. Sweet.

    • The Baseball Idiot - May 24, 2012 at 9:06 AM

      Hey, Spudhukar, how’re you doing? Haven’t seen you around in a while.

      Why do you insist on using the term ‘beaning’ when referring to Harper getting hit?

      ‘Beaning’ is a term used for a player getting hit in the head. Harper was hit in the back, so by definition of the word, could not have been beaned.

      I might be, as you always like to point out, an idiot, but at least I actually know something about the game. Stick around a spell, I’ll learn you everything you need to know.

      • paperlions - May 24, 2012 at 9:12 AM

        Yes, “bean” is slang for a person’s head…therefore, a beaning is necessarily restricted to the bean being hit. I think the technical term for getting hit in the back is a plunking.

      • spudchukar - May 24, 2012 at 11:51 AM

        First off, any reference to your lack of baseball acumen expressly indicated by your choice of monikers, is manifestly evident by your defense of Hamels’ gutless choice to inflict bodily harm to a rising young star. To attempt to deflect the cowardly retribution, for what was a genuinely heads up and fair play, with nitpicking semantically inane defenses only magnifies the collective insecurities that Phillie Phans continue to exhibit. As soon as some degree of distress is met by the once invincible (until they met the Cards in the LCS, a team Fior et al guaranteed readers here the Philadelphia squad need not worry about) the truer nature of some Phillie players and most of their fans becomes evident.

        The term beaning is a generic one, and while if one chooses the persnickety lexical approach, I guess as PL indicates, plunking would be more accurate. But from where I come from, beaning hints at intentionality, which of course Hamels certainly displayed both in action and words. And any attempts to mitigate the bush-league response by focusing on the area of the body the poltroonly frustrated Hamels chose to attack only exposes the excuse oriented Philly Phan base for what they are. Nouveau Riche. It was an embarrassing act.

      • The Baseball Idiot - May 24, 2012 at 12:13 PM

        I’m not a Phillies fan, and never have been. I’m from Missouri and grew up a Cardinals fan. And remain one to this day.

        Can you provide a quote where I said Hamels was right, because if I remember correctly, I never said that. Prove me wrong and I’ll admit to it. But I don’t think you can.

      • cleverbob - May 24, 2012 at 12:22 PM

        Can’t speak for the other two, but I won’t defend or condemn what Hamels did. That’s all been hashed and rehashed plenty of times. I will, however, condemn the misuse of the term “beaning”. It’s just annoying to hear and read it being tossed around inaccurately on such a widespread basis. Maybe we should all start calling squeeze plays suicide squeeze plays, or all layups dunks. It’s close enough, right?

        If you’re concerned about intent, to “plunk” someone also connotes premeditation.

    • paperlions - May 24, 2012 at 9:07 AM

      Tyler Greene seems to be playing something that resembles baseball lately.

      • The Baseball Idiot - May 24, 2012 at 9:10 AM

        They just need to give him the job and be done with it. Descalso will never hit enough, and Schumaker doesn’t have the glove.

        Greene should be good fro 15 home runs and 25 steals if he gets regular time.

      • paperlions - May 24, 2012 at 9:14 AM

        Agreed. The offensive potential is there…he just seems to be a bit of an idiot in the field (and on the bases, but his speed often makes up for that). I realize that 2B isn’t his accustomed position, but he made the same dumb mistakes at SS. Hopefully, he can relax a bit, settle down, and cut out the errors on should-be routine plays.

      • The Baseball Idiot - May 24, 2012 at 9:47 AM

        That’s known as the ‘Brendan Ryan Syndrome’, where the talent level outshines the thinking level.

      • drmonkeyarmy - May 24, 2012 at 10:43 AM

        Hey Paper….I haven’t been paying much attention to any team not named the Phillies thus far this year….can you give me a brief run down on what is going on with the Cards in lieu of the coming series?

      • paperlions - May 24, 2012 at 11:22 AM

        Hmmmm….well….everyone is fucking hurt. You won’t see Allen Craig, or Lance Berkman, or Chris Carpenter, or Jon Jay, or Matt Carpenter. Beltran is playing, but seems a bit gimpy (gliding more than running).

        The pitching has been solid most of the year. Every starter is capable of shutting a team down with groundbalapalooza, good control, and a moderate number of Ks…no one has been really dominant though. The defense has gone on the fritz from time to time, in part because so many guys are playing “out of position” due to injuries.

        You’ll get to see the Cardinals 1B of the future (who is suddenly the 1B of the present), Matt Carpenter. Huge guy, plays okay defense, makes a lot of contact with power.

        Furcal has been great this year. Freese has been mostly good (had a recent slump apparently due to screwed up mechanics that they appear to have fixed). Yadi continues to hit well. At 2B, Tyler Greene will turn a routine play into a disaster, but provides a lot of pop at the plate. The rest, you are probably familiar with and know what to expect….and the Cardinals will probably find a way to lose 3 of 4 while only beating Halladay.

  7. hisgirlgotburrelled - May 24, 2012 at 9:25 AM

    Fueled by the media? Or hitting against 22-year olds making their MLB debut?… and was it necessary to show the kid’s family after each HR from granderson and a-rod? “An Aaa-bomb, from Aaa-rod,” “the grrraaandy man can,” ugh, i feel weird when i hear that guy call HR’s.

    • Utley's Hair - May 24, 2012 at 11:44 AM

      Don’t forget “Raul be seein’ you.”

  8. burm61 - May 24, 2012 at 9:25 AM

    The Tigers fat I mean “big” free agent signing will cost them the Central. Fielders defense is horrendous.

  9. Old Gator - May 24, 2012 at 9:53 AM

    Krazy Karlos implodes on the mound, then says all sorts of nice things about himself, the world, God, his teammates and the Rockies to the beat reporters afterwards, and he smiles, and he smiles, and he smiles.

    Did I just get squeezed into an alternative universe like a watermelon seed?

    Well, there’s no shame in getting skwished by Troy Tulowitzki. Happens to the best of us. Tonight, I’m going to see the Feesh take on the Jints, but there’s a big fat tropical low threatening to coast over us from just south of that unnamed island where all of Macondo’s horrible drivers and corrupt politicians come from, so, at least, I will go if the we don’t get rained out….

    Uh…um…oh yeah, that’s right….

    • APBA Guy - May 24, 2012 at 12:19 PM

      The Giants have one word to describe their impending series in Macondo: “Fiesta!” Everyone loves a series in Miami this time of year, before it gets too hot.

      Today’s starter, Ryan Vogelsong, actually has the Giants best ERA, and has been pitching like a miniature Josh Johnson. Where his new-found velo is coming from, I don’t know, but unlike a lot of early season stats, his 2.27 ERA, while unsustainable, is warranted by his actual mound performances. The Feesh get Bumgardner, Lincecum and Cain the rest of the series.

      I’ll be looking forward to your game summaries and observations.

      • Old Gator - May 24, 2012 at 2:17 PM

        Going to tonight’s game. Never seen Vogelsong. I will keep thee postered. Hint: I think the Feesh “hot streak” is coming to an end – it has been over, really, for a week and a half but no one had noticed.

      • Gamera the Brave - May 24, 2012 at 2:23 PM

        Gator, one of several notable things about Vogie is that he has an excellent baleful glare, and you could fit your fist in one of his nostrils. By all accounts a great guy, but looks like he’d kill ya just as soon as look at ya. Effective mound demeanor…

  10. kopy - May 24, 2012 at 9:55 AM

    When did the Padres mess up their batting order? The first names of the first 5 batters used to make a sentence: Cameron Will Chase Jesus Yonder. Now they’re scrambled.

    Speaking of minor league teams with history, Rochester Red Wings are one of six professional sports teams to play in the same city continuously since the 19th century, the others being Cubs, Phillies, Pirates, Reds, and Cardinals. I’m proud to have them as the AAA affiliate for the Twins, until they get upset with the Twins consistently providing them with a losing product and don’t renew the agreement.

  11. digitaldonnie - May 24, 2012 at 10:14 AM

    How is my math off? When a team plays a three game series and only wins one they go 1-3. I guess Philadelphia has its own standards for math, kinda like their women. Except the math is way less hairy.

    • drmonkeyarmy - May 24, 2012 at 10:23 AM

      No, 1-3 implies that they have 1 win and 3 losses during the series in question. The correct way to write what you meant would be to say they won 1 of 3. What you wrote means that they had 1 win and 3 losses in a 3 game series….which is a mathematical impossibility.

    • cur68 - May 24, 2012 at 10:38 AM

      ‘Army’s right. The logical implication of “1-3″ is precisely what he said. This is Canadian Math talking here. And I submit the thesis that ladies grow hair the same no matter where they live, so why go there, even in jest? You enjoy a contentious relationship with all around you or something?

      • drmonkeyarmy - May 24, 2012 at 10:40 AM

        This dude seems like something of a wanker solely looking to troll and agitate.

      • cur68 - May 24, 2012 at 10:47 AM

        Agree. He’s a nitwit, too.

      • Old Gator - May 24, 2012 at 10:53 AM

        A veritable Abbie Hoffman of the keyboard….Steal This Thread!!!!

      • cleverbob - May 24, 2012 at 10:57 AM

        This is hardly a new concept in the world of sports. I guess they do things differently in Cleveland. Wonder how the women are there…

      • Old Gator - May 24, 2012 at 2:18 PM

        Easy. And there are reasons for it.

  12. thephilsabide - May 24, 2012 at 10:16 AM

    It’s such ridiculous trolling to comment on comments that haven’t even happened yet that it leads me to believe you hate the Phillies more than you love your Tribe. And that’s understandable considering the state of the Indians the past decade or so. But try to contain yourself next time. I think the majority of Phils fans realize this is merely a win that pulls them within a game of .500 and nothing more. But nice not to get swept, I suppose.

    • cleverbob - May 24, 2012 at 10:59 AM

      He’s just following protocol of the Preemptive Troll Doctrine.

  13. thephilsabide - May 24, 2012 at 10:20 AM

    Are you for real? They played 3 games. They won 1. They lost 2. Thus, 1-2. 1-3 would be if they played 4 games, won 1 and lost 3. Got it?

    • Old Gator - May 24, 2012 at 10:54 AM

      Give the guy a minute to change the batteries on his pocket calculator, for Buddha’s sake.

      • Utley's Hair - May 24, 2012 at 11:48 AM

        Do solar calculators work under bridges?

  14. stex52 - May 24, 2012 at 11:02 AM

    Wandy Rodriguez is quietly putting together a solid first half as the Astros’ ace. I know he is on the block. Given his combination of age and performance, he will never sell higher than right now. But I really hope he stays.

  15. APBA Guy - May 24, 2012 at 12:34 PM

    The Weaver/Parker matchup was as good as advertised, with each guy giving up one run in 8 innings. Now you can say, justifiably, that with the #’s 26 and 28 offenses going at each other, that kind of result was predictable. But after Parker’s last outing, which we only found out yesterday was because of “gastrointestinal distress”, his bounce-back was by no means a certainty.

    However, both guys had GREAT curveballs working yesterday. A great shot from the Angels dugout was of the entire starting pitching staff watching Parker like hawks, trying to pick up anything that would help their guys. I’ll say it again: this guy is the real deal: 8 IP, 8k’s, 5 H, 1 BB. 95 mph and 2 plus-plus offspeed pitches. Wow.

    The A’s had their “A” team on the field against Weaver and managed a total of 3 hits against him. His superior polish when compared to Parker was evident, as he changed speeds and hit spots consistently. The Angels also seem to have settled on a reliable rotation in the bullpen, something that wasn’t there in April. They now have a team that can win series 2-1, like they did against the A’s. But against better teams their trouble spots, Pujols, Morales, and Hunter’s absence, make them vulnerable still.

    Pujols consistently chased out of the zone, something he rarely did with St. Louis. Morales runs worse than my 85 year old mother (she can at least get down the buffet line at the early-bird special), and while Hunter’s on family leave they have Trumbo in right, which is an adventure. At least he can hit.

    Still the Angels look much more settled than they did in April, and they will get better still when Albert calms down and just trusts himself again. Trout playing everyday seems to have boosted them also.

  16. spudchukar - May 24, 2012 at 12:54 PM

    Greene a highly touted and drafted middle infielder can be tantalizing. Great speed, intense effort, surprising power and above average range. Those are the positives. He will also be 29 in August. He has a lifetime minor league OPS of .795 and nobody has ever championed his steadiness in the field.

    He is also prone to mental lapses, bone-headed plays and general rookie brain farts that become considerably less understandable when one realizes he has been playing professional baseball since 2005.

    IMHO, second base is the only position, outside of perhaps CF, that he can ever see significant playing time. SS is too demanding, decision-making not being his forte.

    To date his negatives have outweighed his positives. Granted on most days I would prefer him over Schumaker, just not in a clutch game deciding plate appearance. Perhaps his most egregious detriment is his propensity to swing and miss.

    While Descalso has holes in his swing, his lifetime numbers compare to Greene’s and he is a far superior defender, and a heads up, gutsy, clutch infielder with far more diversity as he is an asset at 3B and SS.

    Handing Greene the job, when he has showed almost no consistency either at bat, in the field, on the bases or general play could be disastrous. He really hasn’t earned the playing time he is currently getting, but his seductive talents, and spurts of brilliance garner him starts.

    Like anyone else, at times one wants to believe he is on the cusp of breakout success, but then he returns to his norm which is not MLB worthy, and the clock is ticking. Perhaps the late-bloomer status is applicable, but patience at the Big League level is difficult, especially for a contending team.

    The Jury is still out, as it should be. As a Cards fan hopefully the verdict will be one St. Louis can benefit from, but until he exhibits a degree of consistency dividing time with Descalso is the prudent choice, particularly when you know what you get with the alternative, and that has proved to be a winning combination in the past.

    Given that Alex Liddi is only the second Italian-born MLB player, ever, I am guessing we will see a lot of that line through all of liddi’s firsts, then it will die put. Hopefully, too, will the mariners’ broadcasters’ insistence on calling him the “Italian Stallion.”

    Die out, not die put. Sheesh. Sorry.

    Nick Johnson hit 2 HR’s for the O’s yesterday. It has to be mentioned.

    Hey, Spudchukar et al: your anti Philly bias blinds you or are you just plain stupid?
