Delonte West and John Terry Both Agree, There’s No Place For This Story In A Respectable Blog

Posted in Baseball, Blogged Down at 5:45 pm by

With a 43-40 mark heading into the All-Star break, the defending NL champion Phillies have enough headaches without worrying about scurrilous rumors and innuendo. So it is with a very heavy heart that I quote from PhightinPhils’ Bill Zeltman, whose unnamed source claims “the Phillies locker room has been abuzz about an alleged affair between Jayson Werth and Chase Utley’s wife Jennifer.”  “Whether the allegations are true remains to be seen,” grants Zeltman, who went ahead and published them anyway.

It certainly would explain a lot of the performance issues the Phillies have had this season. It would answer why the bats have been quiet for much of the year. It would also answer the rumors that were circulating 4 or 5 weeks ago about Werth being a problem in the clubhouse. Imagine if players are taking sides on this issue? Ugly!

I would expect if there is any truth to this, the Phillies would deal Werth before the trade deadline and give some lame explanation as to why they did so. While I find the allegations hard to believe, many that live the baseball life do so in a way that we do not.

Indeed, those baseball people sure love to fornicate.  Not like the rest of us, of course.

    As a loyal and energetic denizen of the Phillies-related blogosphere, I’ve gotta say: I’ve never even heard of the PhightinPhils before. Try to find a better way to make a name for yourself, pal.

    “Try to find a better way to make a name for yourself, pal.” Well put, and if the PhightinPhils happens to receive an anonymous tip regarding Ryan Howard and a jazzercise instructor who may or may not be romantically linked to a former member of the Bunnydrums, I certainly hope they’ll sit on it. Until the Phillies are in an important series, at least.

    OK, GC, hate to stir the rumor pot around but I just got an email from a friend in S. Jersey who heard from (now follow me here) his co-worker, whose neighbors cousin is the field manager and he confirms that there have been allegations in the club house.
    Didn’t something like this happen in the first Major League movie with Charlie Sheen and Corbin Bernsen’s character?
