Phillies Phlashback Phridays: Rico Brogna
Ali, ali, a-ya...Rico. Ali, ali, a-ya...Suave. Oh yeah baby, back with a bombastic Phlashback for all y'all, showcasing none other than Rico "Suave" Brogna. Ladies loved him, men had fetishes for him, teammates worshiped his baseball prowess, and opposing pitchers bowed before him. But really though, Brogna was what the late 90's Phillies were...nothing spectacular. Rico played a calm, cool, and collected first base for the Phils from '97-2000. He managed to amass 206 rbi from the 98/99 seasons, going to show you any fluffer-nutter batting 3rd or 4th in today's baseball world can knock in 100+. Brogna wasn't bad, but he wasn't as great as people thought he would become...sort of like what is happening with our current whipping boy Pat "The Bat" Burrell. Doesn't this make you all the more thankful we had Thome and Howard over the last 4 years?
Drippings of Delight:
*Rollins- he somehow manages to put up very good numbers while seemingly struggling all the time. So, maybe we're being too hard on J-Roll.
*Howard- he is the NL MVP...sorry Pujols.
*Myers- still want to trade him?
*Nunez- since Manuel insists on playing him everyday, the least he could do is improve and he has...barely.
*Moyer- old like my dad, but with a better arm...barely.
*Road Trip- sure to be a great time! Let's start the sweep tonight.
*Wild Card- now a half game out...we can do this!
"I don't drink or smoke, ain't into dope. Won't try no coke, ask me how I do it, I cope. My only addiction has to do with the female species. I eat 'em raw like sushi. So please don't judge a book by its cover. There's more to being a Latin lover. You got to know how to deal with a woman that won't let go, The price you pay for being a gigolo." (Gerardo-Rico Suave) *Maria- we've been showing scantily clad ladies on here, so I thought it was time we showed some man skin for our female readers...enjoy your Latin lover!
