Jonathan Pettibone, the young Phillies starter at one point victimized by the tomfoolery that got hooligans Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels in some hot water, celebrates his 23rd birthday today.
Born in the sunny California town called Placentia (ew), did you know Pettibone was is from the same hometown as Knotts Berry Farm? No you did not.
Pettibone, awaiting a start next week against the Cardinals, has been spending his All-Star Break quite productively.
Candy crushin' my dreams

And Placentia means "pleasant," by the way.
