(Hopefully) good sports essays and observations for good sports by a guy who tries (and can sometimes fail) to be a good sport.

The Lot of the Phillies' Fan

Your best pitcher is accused of punching his wife after midnight in public on a road trip.

Then-GM Ed Wade could have hired Jim Leyland to manage his club two years ago, and instead he hired Charlie Manuel.

Not only is Jim Thome having an all-world year in Chicago, but your team, with the eight-highest payroll in baseball, is paying at least half his salary.

The guy you got for Jim Thome in a trade made a heroic catch, crashed into the CF fence (which was unpadded and which he asked to have padded about a week before the crash) and was on the DL for about a month (he broke his nose).

The list of slights, blunders and bad luck goes on and on. Here's to hoping that the victim is okay.

Looks like it could be a long summer in Philadelphia all around.
