a little something for our female readers…and prystie


as we all know yesterday was valentines day, but much more importantly it was the first day of spring training for the phillies in clearwater.  here’s a quick break down of some of the stories that we are following:


PAT THE BAT T SHIRTS



obviously the lead story from spring training is the emergence of the pat burrell: man or machine t-shirts that showed up in everyones lockers on thursday.  these are without a doubt the coolest shirts that i have ever seen and i want one more than anything in the world.  the mystery remains however of who on the team came up with the idea and created these gems. i have a theory on this:  after meeting me in las vegas, and knowing that i have a phillies blog, chase utley looked up the sexy crimes when he got home and saw the photo in question and decided that it would make a good ice-breaker/opening day prank for spring training.  since i am sure that chase reads this blog daily then we will accept no response as confirmation that he was behind this.

still have not heard what the bat thinks of these tees… somehow i think he would be quietly happy about them.  i would even go as far to say that after chase utley i would put my money on the bat as the one who actually created the shirts


BAT ELECTED INTO UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI HALL OF FAME

Said Burrell: “It doesn’t seem that long ago I was here. This brings back such good memories.”

how many of those memories do you think were from the baseball field??? two, maybe three?


HAMELS SHOWS A LITTLE MODESTY

key word little… when asked who had a better change up between himself and johan santana, king cole had the following response:

“I know mine is good, but I know Johan has had a lot more success for many more years,” Hamels said. “So, I can say his is definitely better right now, just because he’s had more years.”


METS CAMP COMEDY
there was a bit of confusion at mets spring training yesterday as david wright showed up on pitchers and catchers day and announced that after years of catching, he wanted to start pitching… this was wholeheartedly laughed off by all players, team officials and media members present as d. wright is obviously a catcher for life


VALENTINES DAY ENTERTAINMENT NEWS

anyone wonder how a rapper like raekwon spends his valentines day???  well wonder no more

“It’s a special day. It’s a day to understand the person who means the most to you.” So how to celebrate?
“I’m the type of dude who may be in a helicopter over the city having sex.”

CHASE STOLE THIS IDEA FROM ME. I HAD THE EXACT SAME QUOTE UNDER THE SAME PICTURE. CHASE IS A THIEF.

If the Phillies organization was smart and had a sense of humor about itself, they would sell copies of that shirt in every concession stand at the CBP. They’d sell a million of them. But they lack the self-awareness to realize that.
