In an effort to prove we can call up minor league player whenever we want to, the Phillies are bringing Lehigh Valley’s Juan Perez into the fold to show those stupid Braves that they’re not the only ones with an endless supply of hot young pitching phenoms.
Unfortunately, the Braves are the only ones with an endless supply of hot young pitching phenoms.
“Perez was 0-3 with four saves and a 3.52 ERA in 28 games with the IronPigs this season.”
After announcing that Antonio Bastardo would not make the team just because he was left-handed, the Phillies seem to have lifted the embargo on leftism and welcomed Perez in with open arms and fake smiles.
With Jose Contreras headed back to the DL, there wasn’t a whole lot of immediate options. Well, yeah; I guess they could have found a kid who broke his arm but then when it healed the tendons were too tight and he was suddenly able to throw a baseball 100+ mph. But that’s just the plot of Rookie of the Year, so I don’t get… what’s that? It was on last night? Fuck, I missed it again.
