Its becoming more and more difficult to watch the Phillies. And I’m a big Phillies fan. They’re experts at getting hits with two outs, and leaving men in scoring position. They do it all the time. Their starting pitchers constantly give up home runs early in the game. Sometimes they do this with the very first pitch. And Ryan Howard. Don’t even get me started on him. I can see why no team wanted to snatch him up. I could very easily stand at the plate and do what he does. He should be in the A.L. as a DH. The Phillies have been in a steady decline ever since winning the 2008 World Series. Signing these older players to such long contracts is one of the main reasons why the Phillies are in their current state. I hate to tell you this Ruben, but players don’t get better with age. We need this rebuilding phase to be over with ASAP.
As for this pin. The Phillies had these for sale in the Majestic Clubhouse Store on Opening Day. From what I’ve read, it was a Citizens Bank Park exclusive only made for Opening Day. One pin sold for $33.00.
