Phillies unveil plans to introduce Cheerleaders in 2011

Like the Florida Marlin's cheerleaders, the Mermaids, the Phillies plan to introduce their own cheerleaders for the 2011 season. I think it's a great idea that will introduce some much needed excitement to the game and offers something of interest to the adults in the crowd as opposed to the Phanatic's tired routine. The risqué outfits are sure to raise some eyebrows and objections, along with the fact that a number of the cheerleaders are employed by various gentlemen's clubs in the area, but all in all I think it's a step in the right direction and a nod to the modern era. Thoughts?

    I seriously hope this is a joke. I will honestly have to consider not going to any Phillies games if cheerleaders are involved.

    "Tired routine"? Seriously? It's sad that they are trying to placate the college crowd by putting boobs in there face. The Phillies atmosphere was great before the bandwagoners, and it will be great long after they lose interest.

    There is no room in baseball for cheerleaders. They are pointless and have no impact on the game or anything at all. They serve no purpose. Cheerleaders are for high school and college.

    If they wear g-strings, and pasties.....that would be nice. It gets hot on that field.

    Seriously, don't put cheerleaders on the payroll. Use that money to pay FA's.

    I dont believe this posting at all anyway. Seriously, if this was true do you really think that this little fan blog or whatever would be the first place you hear it from? It wouldve made headlines already.
