Ruben Amaro makes actual roster move

Ruben Amaro makes actual roster move

Ruben Amaro finally got the Phillies some bullpen help, signing Phillies World Series hero Brad Lidge.

It was only for one game so he could retire as a Phillie and spend the evening reliving his crowning achievement, but he was still more a effective signing in that one pitch than Jonathan Papelbon was all night.

Fortunately, we have the past, which we can slip into freely at any time.

ALLEY-OOPS

John Wall is so fast, he can throw an alley-oop to himself in the time it takes people to realize this video is not real.

THE MAKINGS OF A CLASSIC

Bucks County is under siege at the moment, as an unknown creature remains at large, having been spotted twice by the same man.

It’s been described as a "hairless fox" and Syfy has already dispatched a writing team to figure out how to combine a million of them with the sexiest natural disaster possible.

AND YOU THOUGHT PAPELBON'S WAS BAD

The Mariners’ Henry Blanco was kind enough to deposit a souvenir for one lucky fan in the stands at Fenway Park last evening, but tragically bounced it off a Red Sox fan’s knee bone.

It was slightly less painful than what happened to the Mariners in the bottom of the ninth inning.

FAN FAVORITE

Jim Belushi showed up yesterday – who cares where - to the delight of Jim Belushi fans everywhere. 

It's a good question. Belushi's timeless music and fellow celebrities attesting to his character have made him the icon of his generation, the Cubs seem to think.
