Youkilis, Porcello suspended 5 games for brawl

dirtybastardFive games is not even close to justice for the dirty play of Kevin Youkilis. If you can’t take it like a man and play the game right you shouldn’t be playing it at all. Now if Porcello had been flapping his gums at Kevin after hitting him it would be a little different. Not justified but not as  dirty as Youks actions were. Porcello was backing away and Youk went after him anyhow. Then he says he has no regrets for his actions. He should be suspended for at least 10 days if not the rest of the regular season. At the very least he should show some remorse for attacking another professional athelete. He’s Dirty and he should be punished not slapped on the wrist.

Phils looking for some outfield help.

April 1, 2009

jonesnSeems the Philadelphia Phillies may have some interest in both Gary Sheffield and Andruw Jones. To Replace recently release Geoff Jenkins.

Sheffield was released yesterday by the Detroit Tigers and Jones is competing with Frank Catalanato for a spot on the 25 man roster with the Texas Rangers. From what I have been hearing it seems that Jones most likely will win that spot, however that doesn’t mean that couldn’t change if the Phillies want to make a deal for him.

I would think Sheffield is the better option for thePhillies offensively, however there still is the question on whether or not he will be able to preform in the field .  Here’s an Idea, Ruben Amaro Jr the Phillies new Gm should call up Brian Cashman and see what they have in trade for Melky Cabrera who recently lost his starting CF job to Rookie Brett Gardner.  Now I’m not saying I have heard anything like this but If it comes true just remember who called it first.
