No way Gordon has a long leash, not in this town. That was atrocious. Giving up 5 runs to the Nats in the 9th inning, with the expectations on this team? Expectations and talk is really going to follow the Phillies this year, as the Eagles were mediocre last year (should be better this, but still) and the Sixers and Flyers will be one and done playoff teams. Last year was different, as it was a surge. But the city is going to be way antsy if winnable games are just getting tossed back because Gordon stinks. The team does have Romero and Madson in the interim. Not great shakes, and who knows what will happen, but you can't have "Flash" doing that while we wait for Lidge, who is also a ?? himself. I think it was a sharp move to get him, but sharp in the way you take high risk high reward players in the last round. Stuff like that has gotta stop if you want to be a real contender.
Rant over, just annoyed.
