Did Philadelphia Win That Game Last Night?

A special Saturday morning edition of Mike and the Mad Dog today. Dog just asked Mike, "Did Philadelphia win that game last night?" We here at the blog have often covered the unprepared nature of our favorite hosts. How in the world do you come on the air today and not know if the NL East leader, who the Mets are right behind, won last night in extra innings? How do you not check the box scores? ESPNNews? The 20/20 update? Anything. Geez, can you please just once, come prepared?

It didn't stop there. Next Mike said to Chris "we don't have confirmation on who is going to pitch for the Mets Sunday" - if it would be Santana or Pelfrey. Funny because if you would have opened up TODAY'S Daily News, you would have read this:

"WON'T MESS WITH JOHAN: Johan Santana, who tossed only 78 pitches on Wednesday before a rain delay forced him to leave, won't be used in any capacity Sunday, the final day before the All-Star break, according to Manuel. There had been speculation Santana could be used in relief of Mike Pelfrey in the first-half finale."

CAN YOU PLEASE COME PREPARED!!! I know it's a Saturday morning and you had to get out of bed early, but give me a break...

Jeez, FTLT. They have one foot out the door. Why should they work hard? They are the highest-rated show in new york. They don't need no stinking badges. btw, Lasorda on with them. 3 Blowhards talking at one time is a lot to take.

On a related topic, last week Benigno was saying that he didn't realize how tall Pelfrey is. Mr. "Oh the pain!" Mets Fanatic just noticed after two+ years how tall the Mets' biggest prospect/starter is? He's gotten as lazy as his afternoon counterparts.
