Fire Charlie, Hire Dutch

Apr 11, 2006, 4:18 PM EDT

It seems like the only logical move at this point.  The Phillies are 1-6 and Vincente Padilla has more wins than the entire Phillies teams.  Firing Charlie Manuel isn’t the only move which needs to be made.  The Phillies have to go BIG and by big I mean metaphysical in their next hiring.  They need to bring in someone who hasn’t only lost his marbles, but is a legend in this town.

If you don’t agree with me, just watch tonight’s episode of HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumble:

Out of Left Field

Free-spirited
Darren Daulton spent 14 major league seasons behind home plate and was
a three-time all-star, as well as playing for the Philadelphia Phillies
in the 1993 World Series. Now, the athlete affectionately known as
"Dutch" concerns himself with out-of-body experiences, vibrating
energy, and the limitations of linear time. Daulton arrived at this
metaphysical crossroads after several arrests for drunk driving and
domestic abuse, and a three-month stretch behind bars. But the former
catcher says he previously had inklings of his otherworldly connections
when he played against the Cubs at Wrigley Field and stroked a line
drive that he describes as being hit by someone else. In collaboration
with Sports Illustrated, correspondent Mary Carillo drops in on
Daulton, who resides in Florida, and believes that on Dec. 21, 2012, at
11:11 a.m., he will achieve a "higher level of consciousness."

A higher level of consciousness is exactly what Phillies fans are looking for, except Sid, who has reached that level long before the rest of us.
