Morosi: The Phillies will finish ahead of the Braves

68 Comments

I’ve trolled Phillies fans a lot. I’ve criticized Jon Paul Morosi a lot. Now it’s like they’re joining forces in order to troll me:

 

Worth noting that it takes more than a rotation to be successful. Also worth noting that Morosi picked the Phillies to win the 2011 World Series too, so I guess anything can happen.

But that stuff aside, I have to give some grudging applause to Morosi for getting under my skin for a nanosecond. It takes a lot troll a troller. Hats off to you, sir.

On Sunday, Rays outfielder Carlos Gomez hit a walk-off home run against the Twins. He was very fired up about his accomplishment and celebrated:

The Twins have already gotten upset with a player for bunting while Jose Berrios worked on a one-hit shutout. No one on the Twins said anything about Gomez’s antics, but even if they had, Gomez wouldn’t have felt any need to apologize, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Gomez said, “It’s something I know a lot of people are talking good about this, that baseball needs more of that. And some people say it’s not good. If enjoying and having fun in baseball is bad, I’m guilty.”

He added, “I was not trying to disrespect anybody. I was not looking to the other side, not looking at the ball. I was looking at my guys.”

Gomez also said that baseball is “getting a little boring.” His advice? “Enjoy it. Have fun. It’s competition.”

Can’t argue with that.
