Scott Franzke Cannot Understand the Phillies’ Issues with Scott Hairston Either

Jul 11, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

Clearly aware of the Phillies' unique relationship with an otherwise pedestrian platooner, Scott Franzke let it fly shortly after Scott Hairston's home run off Hamels last Thursday.

Last week, after Mets outfielder Scott Hairston took Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels deep in back-to-back games, we looked at the numbers, and tried to keep our eyes in our skulls when we compared Hairston’s lifetime averages to his performances against the Phillies.

In short, he’s a 65 percent better baseball player with a 1.021 OPS when he plays the Phils.

Clearly aware of the Phillies’ unique relationship with an otherwise pedestrian platooner, Scott Franzke let it fly shortly after Hairston’s home run off Hamels last Thursday when the radio play-by-play announcer was, we assume, off the air.

The audio was originally available on YouTube but has since been pulled. Still, you can read his remarks after his typical end-of-inning summary below:

“Somebody figure out how to fucking get Scott Hairston out! He stinks! Jesus Christ!”
