In 2011, you didn't have to do much to endear yourself to Phillies fans. Things were going so well, even Michael Martinez had a nickname, and not an insulting one. The Phillies won 102 games, the most ever for a Phillies team, and on that roster occasionally was an infielder named Pete Orr.

Orr was Canadian, and the only one of his brothers to choose to pursue a sport other than hockey. The Phillies picked him up for infield depth, but the 33-year-old Orr also provided a capacity for speed. He was even good for an RBI now and again.
