    Don't get me wrong, it was decent when I was a kid -- plenty of parks and playgrounds to spend my days. But when I got to high school, it seemed like the neighborhood changed. Everyone was up to no good, making trouble. So my Mom shipped me off to a family member's house in California... I haven't been back since. Good riddance, Philly!

    Edit to add: going to Cali must have felt like a Fresh start...

    Ok, I guess if I lived in West Philly, I would feel the same way.

    I've lived here all of my life and it's been great until 10 - 15 years ago. But I assume that most neighborhoods are falling apart the same way. The democrats have been destroying the city and
    they seem to be making it worse every day.
    Still, it's not as bad as people say (yet). I think the Dodgers fans have killed more visiting fans
    than Phillies.

    In Philly they hide the bodies. In LA no one cares.
    Thank you Ralph.

    Bob Franklin, please respectfully keep politics off this board. We have a couple of off-topic boards if you'd like to discuss your political beliefs and complaints. Thanks.

    Oh, and you're getting trolled hard with Fresh Prince theme song references instead of serious answers.

    PHILADELPHIA -- There might not be a Phillies player alive that has not heard a few boos from Philly fans.

    Bryce Harper heard a few during Tuesday night’s 3-1 loss to the Tigers at Citizens Bank Park. He went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. A ball dropped among Harper, Cesar Hernandez and Rhys Hoskins in shallow right field to spark a three-run rally in the third inning. He dropped a fly ball for an error in the eighth.

    Now 90s band Smash Mouth, Giants fans, are calling out Harper and Phillies fans shot back. Hard...

    With just over a quarter of the season already finished, Harper is now hitting .219 with 7 homers and still on pace for the MLB record for strikeouts.

    This....

    Never sign free agents to contracts that exceed 4 years. You might say, "well then you're never going to be able to sign any of the top free agents in the offseason". I say, good...won't have to give up a draft pick either. Build the farm and save cash in the process that can be spent on cost effective players in the mean time. Almost none (very few exceptions) of those 5+ year free agent contracts ever pan out anyway so why would you want one that exceeds a decade? The player is set for life and no longer has the added incentive to go above and beyond what is asked of them to hustle daily and win ball games.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Harper is not even worth the league minimum right now. That contract is going to bite the Phillies in the ass.
