These two should be remembered more for not playing for the Phillies, rather than actually contributing anything. Danny "Chief Sitting" Tartabull was signed to help boost the '97 Phils offense. His previous season's 27 homeruns would have been nice, but instead he only managed to eek out 3 games played, then went on the DL for life! Then there is Mike "Not Pedophile" Jackson who did come up as a rookie with the Phillies in 86/87, went on elsewhere, but then was recaptured for bullpen relief in 2000. Don't remember him pitching a single game that season? There's a good reason for that, he was hurt in spring training and spent the entire season on the DL. So on this fine Friday, August 11th we as Phillies fans remember two that were barely Phillies.
*The Mets started an all ex-Phillies outfield last night of Ricky Ledee, Endy Chavez, and Michael Tucker...yikes! They still won the game despite our cast-offs.
*Adam Bernero is back with the Royals and starts tonight. I can't believe the Phils let him go, he pitched so wonderfully in that one abysmal start.
*Abreu seems like a new man in NY. We knew he was good all along, but we always questioned his motivation...and now more so that ever!
*Huge weekend series against the Reds @ home...time to glow or blow!
