Phillies Journal - 2005
by Max Blue


It was the Phillies worst nightmare,
Cormier, Urbina, Wagner their share.
Tejeda six shutout innings,
Ryan Howard a three-run shot for our winnings.
Charlie Manuel is losing his hair.

Billy Wagner says the Phils don’t know how.
Then he goes out and throws like a cow.
What’s going on here?
Is the guy high on beer?
Or a dog with a puny bow wow?

Charlie Manuel is losing his hair.
And most of the town doesn’t care.
You’d think he’d have learned
with Cormier you get burned
No surprise when the boo-birds blare.

July 3, 2005. Citizens Bank Park. Philadelphia, PA.
Atlanta – 4, Philadelphia – 3

Guess old Billy
was not being silly
when said with shagrin
the Phils couldn't win...

So to prove he was right
he lost a big fight.
This spasm of lunacy
a self fulfilled prophecy...

What to do now ?
Punt says the boss...
Do we know how ?
yes, loss after loss...
