Audio: Phillies announcer Scott Franzke goes off on Scott Hairston

Scott Franzke is in his sixth year as the lead radio play by play voice of the Philadelphia Phillies.

Scott Hairston is an 11 year MLB veteran, now with the New York Mets after spending time with Arizona, San Diego, and Oakland.  He's batting .249 this year with 12 HR and 34 RBIs.

Why does this matter to you?

Well, you see, 5 of those 12 HRs from Hairston have come against the Phillies this season.  This year and last, Hairston has killed the Phillies, repeatedly.  The most recent examples came last week when Hairston hit home runs in back to back games on July 4th and 5th.

Obviously frustrated with his club's inability to get the journeyman outfielder out, Franzke let rip during a commercial break on July 4th after a 4th inning Hairston home run off Cliff Lee.  The roundtripper put New York up 1-0 at the time, but Philadelphia would go on to win 9-2.  At the time though, Hairston's home run gave us this great outburst from Franzke (NSFW)…

"Somebody figure out how to f*#&ing get Scott Hairston out!! He stinks!! Jesus Christ!!"

Too bad there's no footage of Franzke from the July 5th game when Hairston homered, the Phils lost that game 6-5.
