caught looking

a blog about the philadelphia phillies. not to be confused, exactly, with "caught looking" the debut album by independent/unsigned/unheard of singer/songwriter greg roth, who is, coincidently, yours truly.

It's one thing to be ripped by a star -- when John Smoltz talked about how much of a joke Citizen's Bank Park is for pitchers. Yeah, yeah, yeah, we've heard it before. At least, however, there's some sliver of truth in it and it comes from a respectable source. It's a defensible position to some point, as hard as it is to hear.

It's a whole 'nother story when you get ripped by a stiff. Tim Worrell, who've spouted off against before, decides to take shots at Philly fans from afar this spring training as a man who was granted a much-requested release by the club last season. That's right, he's not a part of the organization anymore, yet, he can't let it go. The non-Gothem version of Two Face kept his smile wide when talking to the gallery recently, yet couldn't and wouldn't hold his tongue whenh talking to the Sacremento Bee. According to Paul Hagen, Worrell's misery could be laid at the feet at the fans for his time on the east coast:

"Philly is a tough place to play when things go right," he told veteran Giants beat reporter Nick Peters. "I'm a West Coast guy. I grew up in California [Pasadena] and I live in Arizona. It's a different mentality back there. I don't want to say it's wrong, but I'm just not used to it.

"It was a night-and-day difference, a shock to my family. [Philly fans] want to win, but they seem happy being miserable."

For a guy who was as responsible as any member of the 2005 Phillies for missing the the playoff's, Worrell seems oblivious to the fact that his alledged *cough cough* personal problems *couch couch* mixed with his anemic performance may have been the catalyst for the cascade of boos showered upon him early last season. Blowing two games opening weekend might have something to do with. Collecting a million bucks in a blue collar town while taking the easy way out during a mental meltdown may have set a few people off, Tim.

No matter though. The Philly fan is happy being miserable. We love having guys like Worrell who underperform and overblame. We take comport in their contribution to an organization's continued underachievement. Your right, Tim. Why did you ever leave us? What are we going to do if, God forbid, we win with out you?

at least billy boy earned his keep last year. worrell went AWOL on the company dime and decided to criticize the funding pool -- makes total sense to me.
