New Team in WBC? Get Lost!

The Chinese Taipei team is out of the World Baseball Classic. Chinese Taipei was voted out of the WBC this week by confused phans who didn't grasp why Taiwan, just couldn't go by the name Taiwan in the world of sports. To avoid confusion and fan unrest, WBC officials and Phillies blog magnates have found a new team to play in The Classic. Lost Island will field a team for the first time in organized sports. Lost's head coach Jacob will rely on slick fielding Korean import Jin-Soo Kwon, veteran pitcher John Locke, slugging thirdbaseman James "Sawyer" Ford and slugging outfielder Sayid Jarrah to compete with the likes of China, Korea and Japan in the Group A bracket. Lost Island's Department of Heuristics And Research on Material Applications is said to have played a major role it getting this team its place in the WBC line up.

Lost Island will make history in multiple ways, other than being the first replacement team. Speedy infielder Kate Austen is slated to be the first female to play in a WBC game. Kate is rumored to be in the very early stages of pregnancy with a teammate's child, but it won't stop her from playing. Relief pitcher Jack Shephard has been linked to Austen most recently. The ageless wonder, Richard Alpert, acts as coach, scout and firstbaseman for the team. He's the only WBC player pulling triple duties. The Lost Island team's batboy, Aaron Littleton, is four-years-old. Littleton will be the youngest batboy in this year's WBC.

Hitting coach Christian Shepard, Jack's father, is confident that Lost Island's bats will prove to be their team's strong point. Christian claims that Lost Island will be using bats made out of a coffin he once inhabited (don't ask), and that will prove deadly for the opposition. Some media sources and internet bloggers have suspected an odd connection between Christian and team manager Jacob. Details on that are purely speculative, however.

Baseball experts are not giving Lost Island much of a chance this year, but starting catcher Hugo Reyes feels differently. "Dude, we definitely got, like, a shot", Reyes said. Starting pitcher Desmond Hume said this about Lost Island's squad, "It's a grand old team, and there's going to be a show, brotha!" "Sawyer" Ford had this to say when asked if Lost Island stood a chance: "What do think I'm gonna say, Hoss?" Point taken, Sawyer. Female viewers may not appreciate it, but hopefully, Sawyer can keep his jersey on long enough to win some baseball.

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best. When asked how he felt regarding the Phillies, he told Steve Keeley that he was, "Stoked, baby!" The unidentified phanatic then proclaimed, "We are talking about the Fightins here, the Fightins! Said!" Check out the media player below, as the transcribed version certainly does not do this phireball of phandom justice. The Phillies forced game 6 of the National League Championship Series with a 4-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco on Thursday night. Game 6 will feature Roy Oswalt vs. Jonathan Sanchez in a return pitching match up from game 2. First pitch is scheduled for 7:57 pm EST at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Be sure to tune in on 97.3 ESPN's Weekend Sports Guide with Tyrone Johnson this afternoon around 1:15pm to hear me chatting about the Phillies! 97.3 is based in Atlantic City.

Rappers in Phillies Caps

Weekend greetings to you phine pholks out there. Today's post features pictures of rappers wearing Phillies caps. Why rappers in Phillies caps, you ask? Because... Any other questions? We will start things off properly by going with a highly recognizable hip hop star. 50 Cent stays constantly relavant by consistantly creating radio friendly material to help sell (G) units, while he "keeps it real" by still rapping about the thug life he lived before becoming the 2nd highest earning black entertainer in America. 50 is seen here in a recent interview rocking a throw-back Phillies cap. Next up we'll use a throw-back screen cap from what may be the very first major appearance by a rapper wearing Phillies gear. Chuck D, of legendary rap group Public Enemy, wore a Phillies cap in the music video for rap anthem Fight The Power in 1989. The song was the lead single from the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing . Next up we'll go with some home gro

McGwire Stays Phony, Despite Admitting Drug Use

Mark McGwire made an effort to publicly come clean today, admitting to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Steroids and human growth hormones were among the drugs that McGwire admitted to using. MLB Network featured a one on one interview with Bob Costas and McGwire on Monday evening. The broadcast was virtually garbage, thanks to McGwire. Ahead is a list of quotes from McGwire's interview. McGwire repeatedly stated his point of view that there were no dishonorable intentions involved when taking steroids, and that he was merely using them as a means to recover from varying ailments. When asked if he felt like he cheated... "As I look back now...I can see how people would say that. As far as the talent goes and the hand-eye coordination, the ability, the genetics I was given...I don't see it." "I did not take this for any strength purposes." Denial. Read on for similar B.S. He whined about the abuse he'
