Playing For Both Teams...

With the Phillies signing of ex-Bucco Rick White, the relief pitcher becomes one of a long line of players that have played for both squads. Those players, who have been Phillies and Buccos, are known as Phuccos.

Phuccos since 1995:
Rick White
Abraham Nunez
Jose Mesa
Jon Lieber
Mike Williams
Omar Olivares
Lou Collier
Nelson Figueroa
Andy Van Slyke
Kevin Elster
Benito Santiago
Mike Benjamin
Midre Cummings
Charlie Hayes
Mark Parent
Dan Plesac
Dale Sveum
Turner Ward
Roberto Hernandez

Quite an impressive list. Here's to the Keystone State Baseball Player Recycling Program, without which this list of Phuccos may not continue to grow.

Phuccos is a far better name than Phirates...which sounds queer. Nice to see Lou "My Wife's Cousin" Collier on the squad.

20 hits? By the Orioles?? Think anyone would notice if they switched places with the Reading Phillies?

big mistake by me, i forgot the great turner ward...

GM-Carson said...

Also forgot Roberto Hernandez...horrible for the Phils, mediocre for the Buccos...perfect Phucco!
