Philly Top Five
Getting fired was the best thing to ever happen to Charlie Manuel in Philadelphia. Imagine he plays out the season, and the Phillies continue to play as poorly as they had. Charlie leaves, everyone is miserable, the season sort of fades away into nothingness.
It was a week of new beginnings and sad endings. Eagles training camp begins, and the Chip Kelly era is born, and the Phillies season, and perhaps this era, look like they’re ending.
The time surrounding the MLB All-Star game is always the most quiet sports time of the year. Sam Hinkie is just fine with keeping it that way. Thankfully, DeSean Jackson noticed the need for news and said something awesome (stupid).
The Philly Top Five Power Rankings this week are about hellos and goodbyes. Andrew Bynum says goodbye, the Phillies could be saying hello or goodbye, the Flyers welcome a few, and we just can’t say goodbye to Donovan McNabb.
Trading Chase Utley, Darren Daulton’s recovery, and the Sixers silence are outlined in this week’s Philly Top FIve power rankings.
Never have we done more with less than this week. Not one Philadelphia sports team played a meaningful game, and we still had ridiculous story after ridiculous story
