That was a thing of beauty, but WHY PULL MARK? I would have loved to have seen him hit the next batter instead, then depart. :cool: But, I am sadistic. A little fire would have been awesome. Hey, is anyone going to Atlanta?

It didn't look like Buerhle was mad when JM took him out...

I know, but we need something to FIRE US UP :angry: !!
2000, the Tiggers pissed us off. There is nothing like a good roadtrip where they get pissed off and unite. They need some kind attitude. They just look like they are trudging until Minnestoa.

Wasn't Bowa's name being bandied about as a replacement when Bevington was fired?

Bowa's little rant seemed to me to just be theatrics, giving the crowd something to cheer about with another lose in view.

As I watched Bowa's tempestous act I thought to myself that had the Sox hired Bowa I bet that our fans would have loved that "fire".

I heard a Philadelphia player on the SCORE this morning, who's name I can't remember, anyway the player praised Bowa as a manager who's always got things planned out - a step ahead of everyone else.

-DrCrawdad.

One of the other umpires walked over by those two to watch the argument and he was laughing the whole time at Bowa.

Yeah, but Bowa gripes way to much. He argued 3 calls these last 2 games. That's just ridiculous. If he doesn't start picking his spots better, no one will ever take him seriously...

The screaming before the ejection was hilarious. The ump could barely keep a straight face...

Yeah, did you see the second ump laughing behind the first. Classic.

Cool, I will be at Friday's and Sunday's. I need a day off for golf you know. Hopefully we can stick it to them for 2 out of 3.

As crappy as the Phillies have been playing this year I'm suprised it took until June 20th for Mt. Bowa to erupt.
