Say this about Scott Proefrock: he can take a healthy dose of stone-busting.
The Philllies assistant general manager grinned ruefully a few minutes ago when recounting the details of his ill-fated trip down Interstate-75 yesterday.
Proefrock's rental car ran out of gas on the way to the Phillies' game against the Rays in Port Charlotte. Traveling with him? Club president David Montgomery, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. and Jesse Rendell, son of Daily News columnist (and former PA. governor) Ed Rendell.
Usually, AAA is the place where Scott Proefrock options players. Yesterday, it was the place he was forced to call for assistance.
