Mid-Winter Musings

I can only assume Domonic Brown's inbox is full because the Phillies' alleged brain trust keeps sending him the same message over and over again, i.e., "Dom, the ____field job is yours...sort of.  We're gonna' bring in another guy, though, just in case you can't hack it."

So, who is the "other guy" of the month this time?  None other than an anti-Semitic, out-of-control, overweight designated hitter who hasn't played defense for nearly five years.  Can you hear them now, Dom?

Three games into the "season" and the Flyers already know one thing:  Ilya Bryzgalov is not the answer.  He is the question, however.

Throughout their recently expired golden years (2007-2011), the Phillies almost made some people in town believe they were everyone's favorite sports team.  The firing of Andy Reid and hiring of Chip Kelly set the record straight.  The obsession not only over Reid's firing, but his hiring in Kansas City reached a fever pitch.  Even the Weather Channel provided updates.

Never was someone shown the door with such fanfare and preoccupation.  Lost in the shuffle is the fact that the Eagles really needed to hire a quarterback, two offensive linemen, one linebacker, a defensive tackle, two defensive backs, and a defensive coordinator.

Welcome to Philadelphia, Chip.  Eugene is going to look pretty good come, say, mid-October.

Has anyone seen Andrew Bynum?
