Wrongly-shaded baseball equipment has been thrown at the Phillies all week.
Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino were awarded Gold Gloves again, Rollins for the third straight, Victorino for the second straight. Jimmy provided the ying to Chase Utley’s double play combo yang, and did not spare his body any leaps, bounds, or face plants to stop the baseball at shortstop.
Shane proved he can take a face-beer like a champ.
He also led the league in getting pelted by baseballs, with 90. The guy behind him was–surprise surprise–human missile Aaron Rowand, with 65. That guy needs to feel pain the way the rest of us need to breathe.
Chase followed his award with some obnoxious remarks:
“I’m more disappointed that we weren’t able to be world champions. But it always makes you feel good when you’re able to contribute.”
Why don’t you be a team player for once in your god damn life.
“How about that?” I asked of Roommate this afternoon.
“Derek Jeter and Mark Teixeira also won,” he replied calmly.
“So the Phillies have more.”
“Do you want to talk about World Series wins?”
Anyways, I apparently “broke a lamp” in his room yesterday when I was screaming and throwing hats, and now he “expects me to pay for it,” and of course “won’t just forget about this.”
Typical Yankees fan.
